Sports Sound Off: Manti Te'o's Fake Girlfriend Hoax
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Terrance Bates and Derek James sound off about Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend hoax.
Notre Dame released a statement on Wednesday saying Te'o was the victim of a hoax after reports circulated that his girlfriend died of Leukemia one day after his grandmother died.
However, a media outlet confirmed that Te'o's girlfriend never existed. Te'o allegedly admitted, during an interview, that he met his girlfriend, a Stanford student, after a game.
According to Deadspin, no one was enrolled at Stanford under the name Lennay Kekua and there were no death certificates with her name.
Do you think Te'o should come out and give a full explanation? Do you think he made the story up to get more votes for the Heisman? Do you think this will affect his career in the NFL? Tell us your thoughts in the comment section below.
