    Rex is literally tripping over feet right now to trade up and draft him. Says he would be "Perfect Jet".

    I would think between the awful performance against Bama and this story (that raises major character concerns), his draft stock has to be plummeting

    21 year olds do this stuff. I mean, they have a whole show about it, don't they? That Catfish show (and also a movie of the same name). Just that the top defensive college player in the country, who is in the spotlight always with an NFL future right around the corner, should use a little more sense. Obviously I am not buying ND's statement he wasn't involved.

    His response:

    This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.

    "To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.

    "It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother's death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life.

    "I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been.

    "In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was.

    "Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I'm looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft."

    Exactly, his statement is complete nonsense. He was not the victim of anything, he was in on it

    Just saw his interview from October on ESPN. When talking about his "girlfriend" he kept looking up to his left. That is a sign that someone is lying.

    I really feel sad. What the phuck is this world coming to?

    I don't see how any team can draft him. He needs to be fully analyzed by mental health professionals. He either is in poor mental health or has very poor character.

    I never really focused on his face, but during the ESPN interview..he looks kind of insane.

    See, that's why I take the old school approach; I just drink by myself and fall asleep. You know how much bs that keeps me out of?

    it's been over a decade since my 21 days, but the day I learned I can drink alone, have a blast and stay out of trouble, I signed up too. good times.
