Manti Te’o Interview With Katie Couric Will Air On Thursday, And Other Hoax Developments You Missed From The Weekend
Because you wanted more layers to this terribly confusing story about Manti Te’o's deceased girlfriend that never was, here you go. Arizona Cardinals fullback Reagan Mauia says he met Lennay Kekua while doing charity work in American Samoa in 2011.
Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick Says Manti Te’o Received A Call From His “Dead Girlfriend” On Dec. 26, Figured Something Was Up
Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick gave us some clarity in a press conference he held a little over an hour ago, in which he said Manti Te’o was in fact not in on the girlfriend hoax, but did know something was up a few weeks prior to the story breaking today. The hammer allegedly dropped on Te’o when he a received a phone call on December 26 from a girlfriend he believed dead for over two months.
Now knowing what we know about Manti Te’o and the infamous girlfriend hoax, we thought it was worth going into the Twitter vault and finding 140-character snippits from his account that might seem funny/ironic/odd with the benefit of hindsight.

Well, it sure didn’t take Brian Kelly long to wash out the foul taste in his mouth after his Fighting Irish’s awful 42-14 loss at the hands of Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. One day after the game, and one day ago, Kelly interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles head coaching vacancy.
Because we’re here to make snap judgments (so you don’t have to!), let’s get started early here in the BCS title game. With the benefit of hindsight, these few early calls that went against the Irish might not even make a difference — the Crimson Tide are pretty much rolling (get it?), up 21-0 in the first quarter. It’s been a decidedly one-sided game so far, but these calls certainly didn’t help Notre Dame. Let’s examine.
14,500 tickets were available for 100,000+ Notre Dome students and alumni seeking to attend the BCS National Championship Game. Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, one of the hopefuls, did not happen upon a stroke of luck. So he almost couldn’t attend the game entirely.
