What's up with this guy. He needs some counseling. People just never learn that whatever you do can be verified especially when it involves the internet.

All I can say is if I was drafting this guy, before he set foot in my building I would make him take the Wonderlic Test to see how he scores. To be that dumb I see him scoring a BIG 5 ....... Just like the rest of them though, 1/2 of the NFL players can't even sign their own paychecks. I am sure he earned a degree fo N.D.

No kidding! IF he got played,(BIG if), then there is no doubt ND is allowing morons in to help their football program.

That's OK, if they want to do that. It's their choice. But don't claim you don't lower academic standards for athletes.

I'm also quite certain he earned a degree. I hear Basket Weaving 101 is really a challenging major.

If Notre Dame placed their standards any lower, that retarded kid from 'Two And A Half Men' will start at linebacker this fall.

A poster on the LA Times website had a different theory:

This is a simple "beard" ruse gone terribly out of control. I hope Teo comes out and fesses up. It will be a valuable lesson for all of us. Why would somebody "choose" to be gay and then set up such an elaborate hoax to cover that "choice" up? Teo's family, who likely would not be accepting at all of his homosexuality, were probably starting to ask more questions than he could answer, so he killed her off. Once the media got wind of it, it was like trying to escape from a black hole.

It'll cost him a few bucks. But the NFL will hire guys with questionable character all day long, if they can play!

Whoever did this hoax does not matter much. Some people are taking it way too seriously.

This Is What Happens When You Accuse A Notre Dame Football Player Of Sexually Assaulting You
Last week, the National Catholic Reporter published a lengthy piece on reported sexual assaults at Notre Dame. Its fulcrum is the case involving Lizzy Seeberg, a 19-year-old freshman at nearby St. Mary's College who committed suicide in September 2010, just 10 days after she was allegedly sexually assaulted by a Notre Dame football player. That case led the civil rights office of the U.S. Department of Education to launch a seven-month investigation of Notre Dame that last summer resulted in a settlement agreement.
The Seeberg case is awful enough, but according to a former school administrator whose own daughter says she was raped 10 years ago, "They"—Notre Dame—"do a poor job in general." The takeaway from the NCR story—written by Melinda Henneberger, a political reporter for the Washington Post and a 1980 Notre Dame graduate—is that Seeberg wasn't the first woman to be put through the university's meat grinder after making a sexual-assault accusation. And judging by Henneberger's reporting, she won't be the last.
The smear about Seeberg was that she was "a troubled girl" who had "done this before" (according to friends and family members of a "long-serving trustee" at Notre Dame). She was "the aggressor" (according to the accused player's lawyer, a Notre Dame alum). She was "all over the boy" (according to a "top university official" at Notre Dame). After reporting the alleged assault to campus police, Seeberg was told by a friend of the football player: "Don't do anything you would regret. Messing with Notre Dame football is a bad idea." No charges were filed. Notre Dame police didn't interview the player—who was never disciplined by the school or the football program—until five days after Seeberg killed herself. Later, they told the family they weren't sure when they could follow up. "They said they were pretty busy," said Lizzy's mother, Mary, told Henneberger, "because it's football season and there's a lot of underage drinking."
And then there's Joe Power, a Notre Dame alumnus and a lawyer representing the player against whom Seeberg made her accusation. When Henneberger reached him for comment, Power immediately tried to bully her. It's a pretty remarkable passage, featuring some lawyerin' straight out of the Joe Amendola Starter Kit.
