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.
ESPN is reporting that who was behind it had done it before to others. Using the same name, same picture, same profile, same everything. Not everyone has skype thats easy to get around not meeting.
