this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
From today's San Diego Union-Tribune:

T-1: Manti Te'o

2014 RB recruit Stanley Williams made up a fake visit to Notre Dame this past weekend. Which begs the question does Notre Dame really exist anymore?
Manti "The Catfish" Teo update: At leat 3 minor league baseball teams are planning Manti Te'o fake girlfriend nights. The Dallas Stars had Lennay Kekua as a special guest at their home opener:
For me it's pretty simple: the receipt for those white roses and his phone records. They should be pretty easy to produce. In fact, I bet he has already done so for that independent investigation paid for by Notre Dame. Either that or we can't trust Jack Swarbrick any more and that's just incomprehensible to me.
[ED - PGB: Put all of your Manti Te'o related comments here rather than starting new threads and bumping other content off the front page. Thanks!]
Mod edit two: BILG found this new piece on ESPN. I'd say it's big enough to go in the OP up here, but falls just short of needing a new one. If Te'o or ND has something to say, that should be a new thread; try to keep anything else in here. JGB

Six Zero Branding announces this new branding mark for all Notre Dame athletics, to be released Monday unless they decide to not release such information until later in the week as third party disclosure sees fit. Finally, Six Zero Branding is proud to donate the entire commission to raise awareness for the persecution and mistreatment of fake girlfriends everywhere. Because even imaginary people are people too.
