BUT... a star linebacker at a high-profile school? Not buying it. He would have had has pick of almost any girl at Notre Dame, why would he go to the trouble of doing the long distance thing with someone he wasn't already involved with? That's what makes it seem like, to me, that he was in on it from the start. Because a guy like him would have had no problem meeting REAL women.
The most logical explanation is that you're not interested in girls...
I'm still not buying that Teo wasn't in on this from the start.
I think the "girlfriend" started as a convenient Beard and was then co-opted into a sob story to garner greater Heisman consideration while removing the non-existent girlfriend from the equation in one fell swoop.
