In case you have been living under a rock the last few days you have heard about the Manti Te'o hoax. So here is what we know so far. The girl Te'o called his girl friend died seven hours after his grandma. She has turned out to be a made up person. Some reports say that Manti and his parents found out in December and we don't know if or when they were going to make this public. Deadspin reported last week about the story and since then we have all been in disbelief.
Whether you are a Notre Dame fan or not one thing is certain, Manti Te'o, before last week was an insperational athlete. Now you have to ask yourself what you believe. This whole story, whatever the outcome, will damage Manti Te'o. It will cost him millions in contract money and endorsements because this will definately affect his draft status. This may not be all bad news though. Te'o, before last week was a projected top ten pick. He will slip a little but not out of the first round. If the right team gets him in the early to mid twentieth pick thats a steal and will be great for that team and their fans.
