When we last saw Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o, he was getting exposed by the Eddie Lacy and the rest of the Crimson Tide offense.
Apparently, he’s been exposed again:
Manti Te’o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.
Are you kidding me? I mean, are you kidding me?
This is one of the most incredible stunts ever. An All-American linebacker at the country’s most storied college football program fakes the death of his girlfriend??? And the charade runs for basically the entire football season. Incredible.
Te’o got exposed as an extremely overrated football player when the Irish got trucked by the Tide. The national media was also once again exposed for having not a shred of credibility.
