Notre Dame’s fake dead girlfriend, and real dead girl

A Calimornia man suspected of being behind the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend hoax apparently may have pulled the “Catfishing” scam on multiple people.

Report: Ronaiah Tuiasosopo confessed Te’o hoax to friend, on USAToday.com.

In the meantime, back in 2010, Lizzy Seeberg, then a 19-year-old college freshman, accused a Notre Dame football player of sexually assaulting her. She filed a report with campus police. They did nothing. A few days later, Lizzy Seeberg committed suicide. Notre Dame still did nothing.

if the football player said he met her at a game, he may have lied to make it look like he really had met her because he didn’t want to admit he was in love with someone he had never laid eyes on. Just a small white lie that may come back to bite him in the butt.

I think Sky’s assessment of the ENVY of the main hoaxer is right on, he is the UNsuccessful member of a BIG TIME foot ball family and he envies the success of the ND kid—so he catfishes him.

HA HA , not funny, and now the whole foot ball bunch feels sorry for this hot shot player…but none of them feel diddly for the girl who CONVENIENTLY killed herself.

Yea, there is something here that stinks to high heaven maybe some sports writer will point this out.

Well, in true sociopathic fashion, the guy grants an interview stating he had no part in this. Of course. It’s never their fault…always somebody else. He states he is religious and everyone says he’s such a good boy. And again, in true sociopathic fashion, he is getting his way. The media is crawling over each other to get to this guy. Another snake in the grass.

Eugh….this whole things just reeks, on every level. Yay, sports – NOT.

Every sports jock that I’ve met over my lifetime was an arrogant, self-absorbed, over-indulged, tantrum-throwing, entitled boob. And, I’m talking about the types of jocks that had SPORTS in their eye as a career – not the people who were participating in gym classes, etc.

“Sports” has always been a primary focus of attention from ancient Greece to modern-day universities. I would love to see more attention paid to the researches who are trying to find cures for the common cold, rather than throwing laurels at sports figures. But, I don’t see this ever taking place.
