    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
