07:47 PM ET 01.16 | Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te'o is involved in one of the most disturbing and ugly hoaxes to ever hit the college football world. Te'o's inspiring story of losing his grandmother and girlfriend within two days and overcoming the emotion to put on an incredible performance took the college football world by storm, but the story about his girlfriend is allegedly a hoax. As you would expect, Te'o issued a statment about the horrible story and FanSided.com has the entire statement.

Only an idiot would "fall in love" over the internet with a fake person and how did he find out she "died" if he never actually met her.

Typical Notre Dame student. Total moron.

Could this be NFL Draft conspiracy? Maybe some club started up this rumour so his stock would fall all the way to the bottom of the first round and he would get picked up at a bargain price? Can you say Belechick? I think you can!

You know why didn't the guy just buy him a blow-up doll for a girlfriend since he couldn't get one and had to make one up in fantasy land, atleast he could actually touch her then.
