    The big news broke today about the fake girlfriend situation. A serious and complete mess.

    This is the most complete version of the story. Warning it's a fairly in depth read and not the short little half stories that other sites publish as "news".

    Two camps: The first is leave him alone as he is a kid & kids make mistakes. The second that he tried to use this hoax as a way to make people feel sorry for him in that if he can play through that tragedy then he can play through anything. To me, yeah the kid made a mistake but the fact is college football is like a business. Players are using bowl games to enhance their draftability so he should have known better. Poor judgement as a college player may lead to poor judgement as an NFL player. The red flags are up on this guy.

    PETA have used the Manti Teo hoax in their ad campaign against CHICKEN WINGS! So go get a bucket of chicken wings and read this story:
