Swarbrick's PC was a hoax.
Everything about Notre Dame has been a fraud. That team as a Title contender was a hoax.
Yep, the powers that be were so anxious for Notre Dame to be relevant again that when they got closer than they had over the past 20+ years, they gave them a little push (and then some) to get them up to the top.
It became obvious in the Bama game that they did not belong there.
Nor did Te'O belong in New York for the Heisman. If he played for any other school he would not have been. I think he was 54th in tackles in the nation this year.

Cardinals’ Mauia Says He Met Manti Te’o's Girlfriend: ‘She Is Real’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)
This part makes no sense.
Does this mean that other hoaxes with the girl who doesnt exist but has met another football player have been going on for a while?
What else will come out?
wow I can't believe this is getting so much attention. Just heard some clown on First Take saying Teo knowing this was coming made him play bad against Alabama.
Short-sighted and ignorant, but the personal portraits and gloopy tales of prevalence are big sellers now-a-days, so who's to be surprised when someone cashes in?
it's gonna hurt his stock even if he was just a victim. it makes him look like a complete fool.
Really? Its one of the most bizarre sports stories I can remember. Its like a Seinfeld episode with Teo as Costanza.
I watched an earlier interview with him, I can't imagine how he was hoodwinked through a hoax. He claimed her family was supporting him emotionally through it. That she was the love of his life.
I felt the same way at first, but who knows? there is some FB from Arizona claiming that she was a real person and he knew her as well. this whole thing is very strange.
What was the endgame in this for him?
if he did, one will have to wonder how a college athlete would have enough $$ to send
For me no way I send money without, well you know.
This story is so strange. If you don't have twitter your missing out the jokes keep on coming. My theories in order 1.) guy has something loose and was in on the hoax for attention
2) He met girl on twitter started online/phone relationship. Found out it was a hoax and kept it going because of embarrassment. Then overreacted and killed her off instead of breaking up with her because he's dumb.
3) he's not straight which is fine but has to hide it because of his religion and school he goes too. So he comes up with this fake girlfriend and somehow ends up with all of this.
Insane story. Shoutout to deadspin.
Correction: Yes, Rex got the tattoo but only of the girl's feets.
Any new news yet?
Was going to suggest that Te'o write a letter to Dear Abby about the situation...but she died too!! (She really did)
