Te'o told Notre Dame officials that he received a phone call on Dec. 6, while in attendance at an ESPN awards show in Orlando, from a number he recognized as having been that he associated with Kekua. The woman on the line during that phone call told Te'o she had had to fake her own death in order to elude drug dealers, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports, citing a source close to Te'o's family. The woman then tried to restart her relationship with Te'o.

Te'o asked for a photo with a date stamp to verify her identity, the paper reports, but wasn't convinced and then went to his family and school officials to describe the hoax.

At the Heisman Trophy presentation Dec. 8 in New York, ESPN's Chris Fowler asked Te'o what moment of his very public story of tragedy he would remember.

"I think I'll never forget the time when I found out that, you know, my girlfriend passed away and the first person to run to my aid was my defensive coordinator, Coach [Bob] Diaco, and you know he said something very profound to me," Te'o said. "He said, 'This is where your faith is tested.' Right after that, I ran into the players' lounge and I got on the phone with my parents -- and I opened my eyes and my head coach was sitting right there. And so, you know, there are a hundred-plus people on our team and the defensive coordinator and our head coach took time to just go get one (of those players). You know I think that was the most meaningful to me."

Te'o also said on ESPN Radio the same day that he hoped his grandmother, who died Sept. 12, and his girlfriend, who was reported to have died on the same day, were proud of him.

The Associated Press turned up two more instances during that gap between Dec. 6 and Dec. 26, the date when Te'o told Notre Dame that he knew of the hoax, when the football star mentioned Kekua in public.

During another interview at the Heisman ceremony that ran on WSBT.com, the website for a South Bend TV station, Te'o said: "I mean, I don't like cancer at all. I lost both my grandparents and my girlfriend to cancer. So I've really tried to go to children's hospitals and see, you know, children."

In a column that first ran in The Los Angeles Times, on Dec. 10, Te'o recounted why he played a few days after he found out Kekua died in September, and the day she was supposedly buried.

"She made me promise, when it happened, that I would stay and play," he said Dec. 9 while attending a ceremony in Newport Beach, Calif., for the Lott Impact Awards.

Meanwhile, on Friday an adviser to Te'o told ESPN's Jeremy Schaap that the linebacker has been huddling this morning with family members and a team of advisers, who are trying to determine the best way for him to address the controversy. The adviser, who has been part of the discussions, also said all of the advisers are thoroughly convinced that Te'o is telling the truth in saying that he was a victim of a hoax.

They are encouraged, too, by the fact that several people have come forward defending and supporting Te'o. The thing most upsetting to Te'o, his adviser said, is that his relatives were also victimized by the hoax and are now suffering because of it.

Te'o's Notre Dame family is also suffering. Doubts about his participation in the scam extend to the campus, where he is one of the most popular players in Notre Dame's storied history.

Remember that ESPN has egg all over their face too.  They rode his jock for months billing him as the greatest linebacker that has ever lived, and punctuating with the fuzzy, feel-good girlfriend death story.

and Rupert Mordoch and Fox are to STUPID to see the value in NCAAF,  so ESPN (paired with CBS) has Zero competition for NCAAF!! Their rankings, opinions, and who they show on T.V. determines who is in the N.C. game!! LAME!!!

ESPN has turned NCAAF into a joke!! Alabama losses a game at home to LSU 2 years ago, OSU losses to Iowa st in OT on the road...ESPN Analysts BEG for Alabama to get in..they do!! Alabama, KSU, and Oregon have a similar situation this year, and ESPN runs...winner of SEC game to be in BCS title game for a full week!! Its Bias, its money driven, and anyone who thinks otherwise is an SEC fan!!!

ESPN puffed this pos story up and repeated it several times.  they failed journalism 101 and they look like complete fools.  they compound the problem by allowing the teo interview done off camera.  they're not a freaking magazine or newspaper.  they wimped out and let teo dictate the terms of the interview after he'd repeatedly lied to them.  wojciechowski completely blew this by trusting notre dame's pr machine.  heads should be rolling left and right at espn and at ND.

Skipster, I completely agree ESPN blew it big time. I also believe
that the press would like to vindicate themselves in some way by
digging up dirt IF they could find it.To this point, there seems to be
no solid evidence that Te'o was involved other than to possibly try
to cover up the fact that he was extremely naive.I think if the press
had evidence of his involvement,they would have published it by now.

Because ESPN ceased being journalists years ago.  They are nothing more than a marketing machine for the leagues that they air on their network.

ESPN wants to sell you the sizzle, not the steak.   They are always trying to create a story where there isn't one.   A few weeks back, Sportscenter mentioned the name "Tebow" 168 times in a one hour broadcast.   Why did they feel the need to mention the name of a backup QB on a losing team 168 times?

No other network shows Sports highlights from Americas favorite sports and has the best T.V. contracts!

Especially when it comes to NCAAF!!! The talknig heads at ESPN have way too much pull over public opinion, and dramatize "cover-ups" lies, and Bandwagons on Tebow, Lin, the SEC....And at the same time Crucifies penn st. and puts Ohio st back on the map with xxxxxx while they are on probation

When thye go with a story in NCAAF, foor example....it son ESPN, First take, College Football live, PTI and Around the Horn...that could be all day of talking about Penn st., How great the SEC is, or Lin (when he was hot) or Tebow 24/7!!!

If Fox would have a show hosted by say Dan Patrick and had a Sportcenter copy, a college gameday copy, and better and more coverage of NFL, NCAAF, NCAAB (the sports Americans care about) then we would have an option...Otherwise you want to hear about sports, you have to watch ESPN!!!

STRANGE.....

A Black man that is often the first one in line for the public 'lynching'.............

Errrrr.....how about because there isn't a shred of evidence to even suggest he's happy?

*the dude is a devout Mormon....likely a virgin....that is (probably) scared shiitless of women...

*he (most likely)....begins each day by putting on 'magic' underwear....to protect him not only from evil but from temptation.....as to have sex before marriage is a sin akin to murder....(extra-marital worse yes)

*he (most likely) has been taught being alone with women....especially after midnight ...is a serious transgression....and to not avoid at all costs touching that 'strike zone' area....(chest to knees kinda)

SO......no wonder he might appear gaay to the ignorant/closed/weak minded jack-azz type of individual....and he just MIGHT BE.......and if he is...
SO FREAKIN WHAT....it ain't nobody's business anyway
  *the guy simply had ONE (really) bad game....why he doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt here (he got his Eagle Scout badge in high school for chrissakes) is beyond me....

side note: 
this type of person I described above .....forbidden to have a physical relationship with a woman......seems to be the perfect type of guy that might have a fantasy one on-line or over the phone.....right?
  *can you imagine the crap he gets ? (prolly behind his back mostly).....betcha he wanted to show everybody that "hey check out my woman" .....and when figuring out that the entire thing was BS.....naturally was extremely reluctant to announce it publicly......

saw this posted earlier..........
"why don't we wait until we know all of the "facts".  maybe it's true he was the victim of the hoax, not compliant in it."
   *response was name calling ....'idiot' it seems

so this is an outrageous request?.........

I have to wonder whether ESPN really believes (sadly, my guess is that they have never even really thought about it this way) that Mike McQueary really saw a boy being raped, did nothing about it, told Joe Paterno and others about it, and they decided, after about a dozen people already knew about the story, to go ahead and cover it up and let a former employee they didn’t like continue to rape young boys. Oh, and by the way, they made no effort to make McQueary, Sandusky, or the boy part of their cover up, made no effort to keep McQueary from testifying, Paterno decided to help blow up the cover up by testifying himself, and Curley (who had a nine year old son who was consistently exposed to Sandusky in 2001) lavishly praised Paterno, who presumably led him into a cover up which destroyed his life, at his death.

As ESPN’s NFL crew might say, “Come on man!!”

Even if there was some real evidence to back it up, that scenario is just plain nuts and yet it is accepted throughout the media as if it is gospel and even questioning this narrative is almost sacrilegious.

Joe Paterno is a Pedophile Enabler   FACT

Statue Torn Down     Fact 

Wins Taken away     Fact

Your Sick school will be forever remembered as a place that Cowards allowed Children to be Raped     Fact



Just Let it go .... Maybe tell people you went to PITT or Temple and save some Face

Rick Reilly wrote about Paterno

What a fool I was.

In 1986, I spent a week in State College, Pa., researching a 10-page Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year piece on Joe Paterno.

It was supposed to be a secret, but one night the phone in my hotel room rang. It was a Penn State professor, calling out of the blue.

"Are you here to take part in hagiography?" he said.

"What's hagiography?" I asked.

"The study of saints," he said. "You're going to be just like the rest, aren't you? You're going to make Paterno out to be a saint. You don't know him. He'll do anything to win. What you media are doing is dangerous."

Jealous egghead, I figured.

What an idiot I was.

Twenty-five years later, when former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was accused of a 15-year reign of pedophilia on young boys, I thought Paterno was too old and too addled to understand, too grandfatherly and Catholic to get that Sandusky was committing grisly crimes using Paterno's own football program as bait.

But I was wrong. Paterno knew. He knew all about it. He'd known for years. He knew and he followed it vigilantly.

That's all clear now after Penn State's own investigator, former FBI director Louis Freeh, came out Thursday and hung the whole disgusting canvas on a wall for us. Showed us the emails, read us the interviews, shined a black light on all of the lies they left behind. It cost $6.5 million and took eight months and the truth it uncovered was 100 times uglier than the bills.

Paterno knew about a mother's cry that Sandusky had molested her son in 1998. Later, Paterno lied to a grand jury and said he didn't. Paterno and university president Graham Spanier and vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley all knew what kind of sick coach they had on the payroll in Sandusky. Schultz had pertinent questions. "Is this opening of pandora's box?" he wrote in personal notes on the case. "Other children?" "Sexual improprieties?"

It gets worse. According to Freeh, Spanier, Schultz and Curley were set to call child services on Sandusky in February 2001 until Paterno apparently talked them out of it. Curley wasn't "comfortable" going to child services after that talk with JoePa.

Yeah, that's the most important thing, your comfort.

What'd they do instead? Alerted nobody. Called nobody. And let Sandusky keep leading his horrific tours around campus. "Hey, want to see the showers?" That sentence alone ought to bring down the statue.

What a stooge I was.

I talked about Paterno's "true legacy" in all of this. Here's his true legacy: Paterno let a child molester go when he could've stopped him. He let him go and then lied to cover his sinister tracks. He let a rapist go to save his own recruiting successes and fundraising pitches and big-fish-small-pond hide.

Here's a legacy for you. Paterno's cowardice and ego and fears allowed Sandusky to molest at least eight more boys in the years after that 1998 incident -- Victims 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 10. Just to recap: By not acting, a grown man failed to protect eight boys from years of molestation, abuse and self-loathing, all to save his program the embarrassment. The mother of Victim 1 is "filled with hatred toward Joe Paterno," the victim's lawyer says. "She just hates him, and reviles him." Can you blame her?

What a sap I was.

I hope Penn State loses civil suits until the walls of the accounting office cave in. I hope that Spanier, Schultz and Curley go to prison for perjury. I hope the NCAA gives Penn State the death penalty it most richly deserves. The worst scandal in college football history deserves the worst penalty the NCAA can give. They gave it to SMU for winning without regard for morals. They should give it to Penn State for the same thing. The only difference is, at Penn State they didn't pay for it with Corvettes. They paid for it with lives.

What a chump I was.

I tweeted that, yes, Paterno should be fired, but that he was, overall, "a good and decent man." I was wrong. Good and decent men don't do what Paterno did. Good and decent men protect kids, not rapists. And to think Paterno comes from "father" in Italian.

This throws a can of black paint on anything anybody tells me about Paterno from here on in. "No NCAA violations in all those years." I believe it. He was great at hiding stuff. "He gave $4 million to the library." In exchange for what? "He cared about kids away from the football field." No, he didn't. Not all of them. Not when it really mattered.

What a tool I was.

As Joe Paterno lay dying, I actually felt sorry for him. Little did I know he was taking all of his dirty secrets to the grave. Nine days before he died, he had The Washington Post's Sally Jenkins in his kitchen. He could've admitted it then. Could've tried a simple "I'm sorry." But he didn't. Instead, he just lied deeper. Right to her face. Right to all of our faces.

That professor was right, all those years ago. I was engaging in hagiography. So was that school. So was that town. It was dangerous. Turns out it builds monsters.

Not all of them ended up in prison.
