Either it is a "Catfish" situation... and I feel sorry for him... or he is a crazy dude if he made it all up.
Strange, but I actually hope he was tricked, because the alternative is that he is twisted.

It will be interesting to hear the full story ... although it is unfortunate that the potential victim here (Te'o) is being harassed by the media.

I mean, making "less than truthful" stories about one's girlfriend isn't exactly "new". It used to be called "locker room talk".
After all, there IS (or at least WAS) a stigma about having a SO (Significant Other, boyfriend, girlfriend) that you MET online - never mind if it's been an "online only" relationship.
I'm sure more details will be coming out - the sharks smell blood.
