Keepinit Real NCAAF News:
Manti Te’o Hoaxed

Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te’o had lost his grandmother and girlfriend within hours of each other. Te’o never missed a practice and made a season-high 12 tackles, two pass breakups and a fumble recovery in a 20-3 victory against the Spartans. His inspired play became a stirring story line for the Fighting Irish as they made a run to the national championship game behind their humble, charismatic star. Te’o’s grandmother did indeed die. His girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, never existed. In a shocking announcement, Notre Dame said Te’o was duped into an online relationship with a woman whose ”death” from leukemia was faked by perpetrators of an elaborate hoax. The goal of the scam wasn’t clear, though Notre Dame said it used an investigative firm to dig into the details after Te’o disclosed them three weeks ago.
