Yeah that's a lot to swallow. And as others pointed out, would he not have ever Skyped with her, asked for a picture etc. I know they have him that one random girl's picture, but I can't imagine they would've had enough to keep him going that long.
As far as why he kept it going after he knew it was a hoax, that I can actually understand more. I don't think he handled it well, but I can at least comprehend it. Hypothetically, if he really learned then, it would've been really hard to come out with that, have that public knowledge out there during the national championship game.
