    Ho-ly shit. This is a doozy. Too long to post here but here's the first bit. Worth reading on.

    They go full out here with analysis of news reports, tweets, video, etc. I'm still going through it but wow.

    As someone who dislikes him & ND, this is arguably the greatest thing ever.

    So do we get to bash Mormons or Catholics for the hypocrisy on this one? ;)

    I'm stunned. Just finished reading the whole Deadspin article, and it's extremely thorough.

    I'm extremely interested to see how this goes, it's just now starting to get picked up by other news organizations.

    It's worth reading the entire article that NeonTaster posted, it's extremely thorough and while there's a lot that people will be sorting out, it makes an extremely compelling point that he's going to have a hard time refuting.

    Some almost actual journalism from Deadspin. How much does Mel Kiper think this will affect Te'o's draftability?

    Saw this headline and immediately went to the kitchen and made a big bowl of popcorn. Let's see how this one plays out....

    It's just so creepy. Why make it up? Sympathy? Admiration?

    About 100 million sports fans at least find this fucked up story interesting.

    It's not about guns though. So go seek out a gun thread to cry tyranny.

    This is a Bobo dating game situation that a lot of people actually know about. It was a nationwide story since the beginning of the college football season. Its kind of a big deal.

    Damn this story is tough for me because I don't know who I'm supposed to root against. I can't stand Deadspin or Notre Dame.

    I will say that its been a rough month for Manti Teo. He got exposed during the national title game and saw whatever draft stock he had plummet. Now he maybe proven to be biggest liar associated with Notre Dame since George O' Leary.
