03:42 PM ET 01.17 | The bizarre saga involving Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and the hoax surrounding his dead girlfriend got deeper on Thursday, as an interview between Te'o and ESPN's Jeremy Schapp was supposedly scrapped. Deadspin published the story on Wednesday afternoon, and the university released a statement on Wednesday night, claiming that Te'o and everyone was the victim of a cruel hoax. Te'o has yet to comment publicly on the story, but it was expected that he could as soon as Thursday. Now it would seem that we may have to wait a while longer to hear from him.

Just think of all the money he saved on dinners, movies, Valentine's Day gifts and such. Crazy? Crazy like a fox!

Manti needs to give an exclusive to Mandell. Maggie Gray can moderate.

Schapp should film an interview with an empty chair, a la Clint Eastwood, and just air that.

I saw a sign today that had a shirt with a shamrock in it that said "Play like you had a fake girlfriend die today!"

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph.

Go on....

SNAP OUT OF IT! It happens to be 2013. It's a new year, a new team, and, right now, anything's possible in Domerland.
