Notre Dame Fighting Irish LB and Heisman Trophy runner-up Manti Te’o was the poster-child for the past college football season. He was what was right about college sports and future professional athletes. He was a great player on the field and a high character person with strong beliefs and morals off of the field. But after missing out on making Heisman history and coming up very short in the BCS Championship Game, it appears as if things are about to go from bad to worse for Te’o.
Te’o told the world that his girlfriend was involved in a car accident. Then, that she was battling leukemia. Then, that she died, and that her death occurred just hours after Te’o lost his grandmother.
Turns out that almost all of that was a hoax.
