I thought the story was that he met her after the Stanford-Notre Dame game a while ago.
EDIT: From article:
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.

especially since this will become a federal case because of identify theft, and the donations made in her name, etc... they will get ahold of his phone records, they will find the number he was "talking to" and they will find the person he was talking to... and that is IF he is telling the truth.
Ya i know that is what the article said. Te'o is saying that is wrong.
You must be butta because you are on a roll.
Please don't stop now.
In that case, it's funny that his best lie is "yeah, I was lying before." Bold prediction: "Yeah, uh, I was just embarrassed that I, a grown man, had a girlfriend whom I'd never met. I made up some stuff about meeting her in person. We actually only communicated telephonically and electronically."
That, or he'll claim that he was never actually quoted as saying they met in person, and that the reports about in-person meetings were either misunderstandings/misrepresentations/somehow otherwise false.
They had him on the sidelines of a Notre Dame-Kentucky game over the holidays and they did this whole bit where he sat down with the announcers at halftime and Dick Vitale was just fawning all over him and being a general idiot, as usual. Teo is definitely not the sharpest stick in the bundle, that was pretty obvious. Vitale and Teo were a bit like watching Laurel and Hardy trying to be taken seriously. I hope that is not too dated of a reference for some of you younger guys. It was pathetic.

This is crazy.
This just confirms the disregard I've held for Notre Lame, all of the fawning attention heaped upon the program, Te'o's Heisman hype and the superfluous nature of Twitter ...all in one big package with a bow on top to make ESPN look all the fool. What a wonderful late Christmas present.
Thanks for this, Kevin!

this is unreal and should be highly entertaining.
i just got done trolling a friend/ex teammate of mine on facebook... hilarious. blocked out names and cuss words
well played sir,
he mad bro
Teein' Off on Links
This story is so Juicy. I thought Twitter was gunna explode. I don't see any way He was not involved in this. First it says they met at Stanford, Now he says he never met her and he was hoaxed. Who on earth will believe he had nothing to do with it. Give me a break.
Funniest thing I have ever seen
He real mad
interesting thought... so they knew sometime late December about this hoax (ND, Te'o, etc...) why would they allow a large inspirational piece to be done right before the BCS national championship game almost 2 weeks later...
Notre Dame will not publish or make public in any form the findings of their investigation of this situation... really... really!?
Maybe Manti could have saved himself some time and went over to St. Mary's College to find himself some action like the walk-on legend Daniel 'Rudy' Ruettiger?
Time to dial up Oprah she will get to the bottom of this. Lance Armstrong first now Manti Te'o. Manti contradicts himself way to much for him not to be in on it. He is just trying to save face since the story broke by sating he was hoaxed. And people thought his draft stock dropped after the BCS Title game this sure won't help him out by any means.
also, does anyone here have a cell phone that even if you had it plugged in would last for 8-10 hours?... bc if i tried to have an 8 hour phone call even if my iphone was plugged in no way it would last.
See attached photo
Whoa whoa whoa...I didn't even think of that. Hahahahahahaha...
