what an ass.
It's just spitballing at this point, but there is a working theory that Te'o went through this ridiculous process as an effort to cover up that he's gay, given that openly gay guys don't exactly mesh well with the hyper-masculine, testosterone-fueled zones that are football locker rooms (bypassing the obvious Catholic / gay joke here).

It's mere speculation, but the idea has legs because it's the only thing that makes sense (and is also sympathetic) without him being either A) a total moron or B) a complete sociopath who would instantly become the textbook example of "character issues" when evaluating draft prospects.
He's Mormon as well, which in this circumstance might be even "worse" than Catholic.

Very strange story all around though.
