Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Notre Dame star and Heisman Trophy runner-up was clocked at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock had said on Sunday that anything faster than 4.7 would be “phenomenal.” Anything 4.8 or over would be a “concern.”
The man who said he tricked Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o into falling for a fake woman he created online claims that the hoax had “everything to do” with escaping from real life because he had been molested as a child.
Tuiasosopo said he was the voice of Kekua but initially refused to recreate it when pressed by McGraw. He eventually agreed to do the voice behind a privacy screen, something McGraw promised to show during part two of the interview on Friday.
Manti Te’o said that the feelings he had for what turned out to be a fake, online girlfriend were real, and he reiterated that he had nothing to do with the hoax.
“We interview most all the players, and so we’ll interview him, just like we interview everybody else,” Reese said. “If he’s in the right spot, and we like him well enough, any of these guys could be a possibility, including him.”
The woman whose photo was used as the “face” of the Twitter account of Manti Te’o's supposed girlfriend said the man allegedly behind the hoax confessed and apologized to her.
Hoaxers continued to harass Manti Te’o up to two days before the BCS National Championship Game.
Te’o hoaxes are commonplace across social media in the United States.
“(Tuiasosopo) told me that Manti was not involved at all, (that) he was a victim,” an unnamed woman said in a report. “The girlfriend was a lie, the accident was a lie, the leukemia was a lie. He was crying, he was literally crying.”
“I am working on finding out more about this @MTeo_5 #Catfish story. I have been in contact with the woman involved and will get the truth,” Schulman tweeted.
JaKarr Sampson scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half and St. John’s handed No. 20 Notre Dame its second straight loss, 67-63 at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
Shabazz Napier scored 19 points, and Connecticut ended the game with a 7-0 run to beat No. 17 Notre Dame 65-58 Saturday.
AJ McCarron threw four touchdown passes and Eddie Lacy ran for 140 yards and scored twice for the second-ranked Crimson Tide, which scored on its first three drives and cruised from there.
In the end it will be up to Golson and AJ McCarron to lead their respective team to victory. At the end of the day, Alabama will just be too much, and the luck will finally run out for the Irish.
The Crimson Tide is taking on the Fighting Irish in the BCS National Championship Game, and Saban has been thinking out of the box to prepare his players for the big game. On Sunday, he took a page out of legendary Yankees closer Mariano Rivera’s book.
