The Te'o Hoax, In Review

By January 29, 2013

Follow me on:

It's the story that has captivated the world of college football--in part, because, well, there isn't any football to talk about, and in part, because, well, it's simply beyond bizarre.

It's the Manti Te'o hoax, and it's done everything from tarnish the reputation of one of the biggest stars in recent Notre Dame history to raise questions about the ability (and willingness) of the traditional sports media to break big stories about the teams and players they cover.

Yes, this story has been fascinating, and slightly depressing, and altogether odd. And you can read about it from all angles right here, in our ever-growing archive of Te'o-related content.
