wow ... not sure what to say . . . i read part of the article but did not have time to read it all . . . i hope the article is a hoax . . . but it should not take too much to disprove it . . . so my guess is that if Deadspin is wrong this can easily be corrected and we should know shortly one way or the other . . .

That was a poorly written, wandering and WAY TOO LONG of an article. 

 

A quick summary of events would've sufficed but this thing turned into a novel. 

 

Based on the terrible presentation of the article, I would be suspicious of it's claims.

Isn't deadspin like the Onion?

 

No, that's Sports Pickle.

 

Deadspin is like TMZ, with real journalists/researchers.

....They really expect people to believe this?

agreed, so theyre telling us that a manti dated a girl who never existed faked a death, and he was never aware of this? i dont buy it, sounds like notre dames statement is saying he had ben fooled while the article is saying he was involved, which he had to be or this makes no sense whatsoever

He's not a good linebacker, anyway. He got smoked when he had to go up against NFL caliber players. I wouldn't touch him with a 39-and-a-half foot pole.

they arent claims, its all true, notre dame has already issued an official statement on it, the only difference is they make him out to be a victim, and the article says he was in on it, other than that, it was all a hoax

ikr? Even if the Notre Dame statement is accurate, it still knocks Teo down the draft board for being the most gullible person on the planet... reminds me of that movie "Catfish"... What I don't get is why he would continue to perpetrate the lie, knowing he would eventually be caught up.... I never read the word "*" in any of the scouting reports....

Anybody want to take guesses on why a Mormon football player would lie about a girlfriend that lives across the country?

I don't think that this story is fabricated. Could you imagine the career suicide this writer would be doing if he lied about a cover up about one the best football players in the country.

Between this and that Sandy Hook hoax video, I'm beginning to think the whole world is just one big farce.

manti's statement

"This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her. "To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. "It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother's death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life. "I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. "In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. "Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I'm looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft."

    •   No, we need a game-breaker RB, a game-breaker TE, a big bodied game-breaker WR, a game-breaker LBr, % let's just get a whole team of game-breakers, why didn't we do this before?! Fire the Colts from the city of Indy!! This is ridiculous! I put this on Irsay! Where is irsay in all this?! Fire Mcdaniels! This team is absolute trash!
    • At the end of the day, I would be happy with either. I do think you could get 80% of Barkley's production from a back in round 2 or 3. I don't think the same can be said for a pass rusher of Nick Chubb's calibre. The other side of the coin is, I don't believe there is a single player who can improve us more for 2018 than Barkley.
    • It's Ballard who runs the business, but he stated and also proved that he listens. With McDaniels arriving, he will have his voice  heard. And because of that, I think the Colts will go for someone like Deion Lewis in free agency, and draft another guy in the 2nd, maybe 3rd day, then McDaniels will implement a similar running by committee running game, what the Patriot's been using for a long time.   That does not require an elite rusher, so I just don't see them drafting a running back in the first round.
    •   People downplay the importance of RB in relation to other positions  A very good or even just good RB will usually be good enough.   Given the Colts current situation and roster I would not take B Sanders at #3 either ... This isn't 80's or 90's: "Good-Very Good" Pass Rushers, Corners, etc ... are more beneficial than "Elite" RBs.   I bet the Steelers would have opted for Shazier and a "Good" RB over "Elite" Bell and no Shazier for their playoff run if given the choice.
    • After watching the show, I came away with the thought that unless the Colts move back to around the 9-11 area, there is no way we are going to be taking Quentin Nelson from Notre Dame. Although I love the guy, I believe with McDaniel's offensive scheme, and Luck getting rid of the ball quickly most of the time, a guard at #3 just does not make sense. I think Chubb or Barkley, depending on who is there will be the choice, although if Barkley is there, and a QB, or even possibly Chubb, there are going to be teams wanting to move up. I really came away thinking how much I would like Chubb after all I have read on him lately, but if the right picks were involved, and we could move down just a bit, have to think about it. I found it interesting that Polian said he would not move off our spot unless we got at least another 1st draft pick next year, and one more high round this year. It seems Barkley, Chubb, Rosen, and Darnold, and possibly Allen are going to have a lot of suitors vying for them. FA will change all this, but Ballard is going to have to make some tough decisions on draft day I believe.   Can't believe it is only 3 months away.
