Notre Dame claims it was a hoax perpetrated on Te'o. So... they are claiming he never met or talked on the phone to the love of his life. That is going to be disproved so easily by finding a quote of him saying something about talking to or hanging out with her. Beside that point he said "follow (the girl's sister)! she's new to twitter and is one of the realist people i know!"
I mean... just come clean at this point. There is no escaping the truth.
Yeah there's no way he can claim he was not in on it based on his own comments and quotes
A friend of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo told us he was "80 percent sure" that Manti Te'o was "in on it," and that the two perpetrated Lennay Kekua's death with publicity in mind. According to the friend, there were numerous photos of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo and Te'o together on Tuiasosopo's now-deleted Instagram account.
The sheer quantity of falsehoods about Manti's relationship with Lennay makes that friend, and another relative of Ronaiah's, believe Te'o had to know the truth. Mostly, though, the friend simply couldn't believe that Te'o would be stupid enough—or Ronaiah Tuiasosopo clever enough—to sustain the relationship for nearly a year.
