Manti Te'o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.

Nor is there any report of a severe auto accident involving a Lennay Kekua. Background checks turn up nothing. The Stanford registrar's office has no record that a Lennay Kekua ever enrolled. There is no record of her birth in the news. Outside of a few Twitter and Instagram accounts, there's no online evidence that Lennay Kekua ever existed.

    saw that shit on twitter i was like

    yeah i just found out from my dad and had that same look.....his whole viability to be as high in the draft projections as he is is based off his charachter cause lets be honest shutting down pittsburgh and vaderbuilts offense isn't as impressive as a full SEC season and he fucked around with bama and got smoked by their superior offense.

    so if this does turn out to be true you can kiss the whole "character" aspect boosting up your draft status lol

    quote:
    Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

    On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.

    The South Bend Tribune wrote an article describing the young couple's fairytale meeting—she, a Stanford student; he, a Notre Dame star—after a football game outside Palo Alto.

    Nov. 28, 2009: Te'o and Kekua meet after Stanford's 45-38 victory over Notre Dame in Palo Alto, according to the South Bend Tribune: "Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te'o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes." Kekua, a Stanford student, swaps phone numbers with Te'o.

    It was around this time that Te'o's Heisman campaign began in earnest, aided in part by the South Bend Tribune.

    Wow. Unbelievable. Either this guy is an idiot and got catfished, or he was in on it. Or, he is gay and trying to cover up the relationship with that other guy in the story. Every award he won should have went to Clowney.

    I think this is it.

    Only logical choice for one spurning USC for ND.

    not really same sex marriage is legal in cali and notre dame is a catholic school .....okay maybe the catholic school thing doesn't help my case. but lol usc had a worse record than penn state yall niggas lost more than ND this year too hahaha

    My opinion: He wanted the publicity so he could potentially get sponsorship after school, or he's gay like Malice said

     RT @TheBigLead: Manti claimed to have met her. He claimed vacationed with her, per another story. What did he say to ND when it asked these questions???
