Manti Te'o's story of girlfriend Lennay Kekua a hoax
The Cinderella story of Notre Dame's college football season ended in defeat in the BCS national championship game. The story that fueled Manti Te’o's emotional play, the loss of his girlfriend Lennay Kekua, however, ends in a lie, according to a report by Deadspin.com.It’s not clear when Te’o became aware of the hoax, or if he was involved in its perpetuation, but according to Notre Dame spokesman and assistant vice president Dennis Brown, the team’s coaches were informed of the hoax before the team took the field for the BCS title game against Alabama.
