Deadspin’s Burke fails to answer his own question in this, “”Ask yourself why and what incentive a person would have to execute such a lengthy, time-consuming and expensive con” when it comes to Te’o.

The answers to his question for the Perps are several including Burke’s own diving off a short pier. But, what reason would Te’o have??

Most all of the Media reports show that the reporters never listened to nor watched the ND press conf, rather just shot from the hip.

“latest black eye”?? How? Then, the author cites 2 other incidents, one an act of god, which were not “black eyes”.

And, reporters are supposed to have college degrees??

This kid is either really stupid or a con artist.
He’s quoted saying how much he was in love, etc, yet never met this fake person — how can anyone say they’re in love in such a circumstance ??
Seems more like he made up the whole thing, wanting to generate sympathy going into the NFL draft maybe thinking he’d get a bigger signing bonus that way ???
He almost got away with it too, fortuntately someone realized the fake story was a lie.
