The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.
    ND's just opened itself up to weeks of questions about this "investigation" and it's eventual conclusion.

    I won't Manish you guys with the appearance that I know anything more than what I've read on the internet, but if he is gay and now is trying to double down on this lie that he wasn't in on it, SI, ESPN, Deadspin are going to be his undoing.

    That's true. Thanks for reminding us of that.

    And I should say that the source of this was Cimini's speculation of what MIGHT happen if the Jets hire "a cap guy" as GM.

    It appears Jets will go with external candidate to be new GM (Khan & Idzik have had 2nd interviews). I'm hearing Scott Cohen is on periphery

    @Brian_Bassett
    While everyone zigs, I'll zag. Hearing nothing about Khan, Idzik & Cohen for #Jets GM, but (believe it or not) Gamble & Sundquist.

    On the bright side, Te'o's gf will be thrilled to find out she's not dead.

    Wasn't Bassett the one that Steiny was blowing?

    From the story:

    She was initially confused, then horrified to find that she had become the face of a dead woman. "That picture," she told us over the phone, "is a picture of me from my Facebook account."

    I wonder if someone is giving the different reporters different reports

    Pretty much, Basset was the one who first reported Gamble was a ''done deal'' essentially.

    And to his credit, he has stuck with that story all this time.

    I give him credit sticking to the story, but every other major media outlet has not said a word about Gamble yet. Basset is a good guy, but I have to lean toward the majority here.

    per NFL.com on rotoworld:

    GM John Schneider confirmed Wednesday that the Seahawks will listen to offers for Matt Flynn.

    "I'd be lying to you if I told you that we wouldn't be listening to people," Schneider said in a radio interview. "I think we all believe he's a starter in this league, but we structure ourselves in a salary-cap manner where we're in a very good position with him." Set to make "just" $5.25 million in 2013 only $2 million of which is guaranteed Flynn has a tradeable contract. However, his free agent market proved limited last offseason, so there's no guarantee there will be meaningful interest in a career backup who turns 28 in June.

    he gone

    Does anyone know if Idzik is still at Florham Park or did he fly back to Seattle?

    Maybe the reporters predicting a Thursday announcement are just guessing because they know the second interview taking place today.

    While I certainly hope not, isn't it possible that Idzik and Kahn were only the first two 2nd interviews and that the Jets may have set up?

    Well it was reported that the Jets wanted to get this decision done by the end of the week.

    Only 2 days left....

    Translation? I'm just guessing and making sh1t up, because I know there's zero consequences for getting the story wrong in the world of Twitter journalism.
