You are a GM at the pro level and you have to draft a line backer


What do you think of the Manti Teo revelations and how it will effect his being drafted.

I think him being bowled over by Lacy time and again combined with this imaginary story of his losing his girlfriend has to make him practically un-draftable.

Your thoughts?

I,m guessing he is all three. His teammates have admitted he is an attention whore. The rest is pretty self explanatory.

he can right the ship if he convinces NFL personnel guys that he's a solid guy. but he'll still slip.

i'm sure someone will take a flyer on him.


all he has to do is be contrite and say that he learned a lesson. i'd be much more worried about my bama game performance if i were him.

you'll get drafted if you can play with the big boys.

Well the fact that he wasn't nearly the best LBer in the nation this year stat wise doesn't help. He won't be the best LB in the class so I don't expect him to be the first LB to go, or even to be a 1st or 2nd rounder, but past exposure alone will get him drafted.

I have a littl e bit of a different take.
Teo may have been a victim, alright, but the perpetrator may have been the Notre Dame PR machine which 1) was more than anxious to hype him for a Heisman for which he wasz not qualified and 2) which has historically been inclined toward the tear-jerker-hero by line throughout their history , a la "Rudy", "win one for the Gipper...", etc.

Do not dismmiss the likelihood that ND's athletic department was complicit in this fabrication

It'll be ok, this can tie into Minter


I feel the same as the OP, who in their right mind would draft this guy???


saying that, saw Polian on SC yesterday

he states this is nothing, not a character flaw at all and it won't affect his draft spot

I personally think that old man is nuts as Te'o but we shall see

The OP makes no reference to Minter whatsoever. This thread is basically about Manti Te'o. His other thread is strictly about Texas A&M winning a national championship. There is specifically a More Sports Board, so that the Tiger Rant, where we would actually like to discuss LSU Sports, doesn't get bogged down with shite like this.

IDK, maybe his religious beliefs prevented him from developing experience with girls in highschool causing him anxiety later on. So, when he was able to get involved with women his inexperience made the idea of relationship over the internet more appealing.... found out that he had been victim of someone elses amusement, but was too humiliated to come clean with it.

IDK.

P & G,
Do you have anything better to do than police inappropriate posts on this site?
You should either get a hobby or a blow job , or both, instead of attempting to hector others about their opinions or on matters of little or no consequence.

I would evaluate him along with several of my best scouts and make a determination based on what kind of fit he would be for my team. But hey, I'm just trying to keep my hypothetical job

I pass because he's not worth a first pick and he's a fricking nut.

Without the hoax, he was never going top 10
