    It's great, the first thing I've ever read about college football; spent half my day (having the flue) in bed reading about it.

    me too!! minus the flu... i did it while at work pretending to be doing work

    personally, i think him and the romaiah guy are gay for each other... and created a fake person so they could communicate publicly.. and his family knew... the "death" was their breakup

    im not buying that it was done for publicity... 3 years is alot of time to commit to a publicity stunt

    and im not buying that a star athlete at a football crazed school had an online relationship for that long without meeting them when there are so many open legs inches away

    But if the death was their breakup, why not just say the relationship was over? No reason for overacting. Lot's of weird stories, don't know what to make of it. Just being hoaxed seems even more unbelievable though.

    initially i thought a catfish type scenario is what made the most sense... until you read all the things where he said she visited him in hawaii and his dad said he'd met her

    very strange stuff... i really anticipate more of this story coming out... its like a real life soap opera

    The weirdest part was when he was asked about why he never visited his dying girlfriend and he just responded with "it never crossed my mind" I don't buy it. No way he got catfished

    my ladyfriend has somehow not caught wind of this whole sordid soap opera... but everytime she does something vaguely unwomanlike... like, watch hockey, or not do the dishes.. i'll say "ronaiah?"... thus confusing the crap out of her, and further bringing about the eventual end of our very temporary involvement

    he may just be an honest mormon kid who got bamboozled on the internet..... damn those mormons for being such decent people.

    i wonder if he corresponds with the son of the deposed king of nigeria too

    "Lenay" is going to be the catchphrase for the guy with the girlfriend that you never get to meet.

    a chick friend of mine recently broke up with her boyfriend.. who then went mental on his facebook page with "Fuk dat hoe! i gon' get mine, BITCH! real talk.. she fat anyways" type posts... it was the source of a great deal of comedic gold amongst my group of friends...

    he went and changed his privacy settings... and we lost the cornucopia of hilarity...

    we're currently trying to create a Lennay... just so we can get those laughs back

    i believe the exact words were "dude, he blocked us from his timeline.............. let's Te'o him"

    That's. Just. Awesome. Please keep us updated... As long as he's not one of your boys, then it's cool(I think?). But Facebook ranters should be teacheded lessons!

    He got Catfished.

    Allow Urban Dictionary to explain:
    1. Catfishing

    The phenomenon of internet predators that fabricate online identities and entire social circles to trick people into emotional/romantic relationships (over a long period of time).

    Possible motivations: revenge, loneliness, curiosity, boredom

    The term catfishing was inspired by the 2010 documentary "Catfish."
