Re: Manti Te'o didn't really have a dead girlfriend
I hope/think people need to let him be at this point.
I hate Notre Dame as much as anyone, but the kid is 21 and IMO has faced enough heartbreak and humiliation as is. At worst he was a part of a hoax (which I doubt) and even at best, he is guilty of embellishment and some sort of cover up (probably out of embarrassment more than anything). Either way however, I start to worry that this could end very badly if the scrutiny, criticism and ridicule continues at this pace.
He is 21 years old, and didn't physically hurt or steal from anyone, nor did he break the law. He has been completely humiliated. Let it be.
(That said, some of the one liners that have come out of this are priceless).
