Re: Manti Te'o didn't really have a dead girlfriend
The current generation of sports media is a joke, but we already knew that.
It's a big deal because this "feel good" story was shoved down our throats the entire football season and now it turns out it was all a great big lie. Even after T'eo claims he found out on Dec 6th that she wasn't real, he still gave four more national interviews -- including during the Heisman presentation and the BCS Championship game -- in which he continued to express his grief about her "death". This guy has some serious issues.
