I just sent a random text to my ND friend with about 8,000 "hahahahha" in it.

I think he knew immediately what I was talking about.

That it really isn't that big of a deal. His role will probably be knocked down in the coming days and in a couple of years no one will care.

I usually agree with you Roger but this will be news for at least a month because new details will come out daily.

They will find some way of making him a victim. Just watch.

I think the weirdness combined with that fact that he was dealing with this before the NC game make it a bigger story because he was awful in the NC game. It's hard for a person to focus when they know the $hit is going to hit the fan very shortly.

I don't think that would have really mattered. Much better LBs got owned by Lacy and Yeldon all season.

Eh, Alabama does that to a lot of good defensive players.

I still think he will end up being a victim before it's all over, whether true or not.

They do, but he looked flat-out awful. The guy was supposed to be a top 10 pick in the draft and he played like a joke in his biggest game.

It won't take much investigating to see if he really was a victim. Phone records, etc., will tell the story - if they want the story to be told.

He's already claiming to be a victim. This is all bull shite. He didn't know her but other people, friends of his, claim to... How can you know someone that doesn't exist? I really don't care, but he sure played the whole thing to the bone. His family and teammates were behind it... They all talked like they knew her and saw and spoke to her on a regular basis. Te'o cried and bitched and moaned in front of every camera they stuck in front of him for 4 months.

Never once did he think to say.. Well I don't actually know her but..?
