Just when you think you’ve heard it all, ESPN reports:
Notre Dame says a story about Manti Te’o’s girlfriend dying, which he said inspired him to play better as he helped the Fighting Irish get to the Discover BCS National Championship, turned out to be a hoax apparently perpetrated against the linebacker.
It’s hard to imagine that the season’s most inspirational story was a total fraud. The facts are still emerging, but this will be interesting to watch. Doesn’t it make you glad that Johnny Football won the Heisman?
