Notre Dame's Hoax A mother & wife 2 kids; Pennsylvania 4817 posts

I heard about this on the radio this morning and thought it was odd. How could you not physically be with a person.
But then callers called in saying how they would have year conversations with a spouse that they have never meet on the phone or internet. I personally could not do that. I am a physical type of a person.


What's your take on this story? I have mixed views.

Riddle me this, if he was in on it, why would he out himself?



the ONLY reason people found out is because he told them.

I know alot of ppl have relationships these days without actually meeting. I heard about it on the radio as well, did he actually ever talk to this girl or skype with her?



I honestly think it was a horrible hoax gone bad, and he didnt realize that she was not a real person??

this is what i think too, its one thing if someone else outted him, but as soon as he found out, he told people.. he was shocked, and its a horrible sick joke to play on someone.



he grieved her, fake death or real, it was at the time real to him.

Have you watched Catfish on MTV?
Thats all people on that show do is lie on the internet for months or years at a time. Its creepy.

Google also brings up the most visited site. So it doesnt always mean its true.



I think he is in on it to get some fame and what not.

He is an excellent athlete, he did not need the "fame" that came with the deaths.
He was up for the Heisman, thats huge!

I think it is all some kind of fame game.
He said that she died. He never said rather she was real or not. Maybe if she isn't a "real" person then someone was playing a practical joke on him.



A caller called in and said that her mother played some game on facebook and started chatting with this 15 year old girl. Just conversation. This went on for about a year. The person knew all kinds of stuff her boyfriend, her grades, the mother was like her mentor. Well she got a birthday reminder saying it was her birthday. Well this chicks mother went to say happy birthday and on the girls facebook all she seen were post saying we miss you. Wish you were here. Ect.
So she did more research and found out this girl has been dead for 5 years (this was years and years ago) she passed away before facebook was even created. The 15 year old girls mother and sister made the facebook and pretended like the girl was still alive. Well the mother called the girls mother and the sister (3 way conversation) and told them why and how sick they were. Well apparently the girl lived in Canada and her sister was some political person.



So after hearing that. Anything can happen.

That is what I am thinking. They had phone conversations. But what if it was a dude pretending to be a chick. Like drag. To get some money or something.

True. But apparently they did meet in person at a Stanford game and countless other times in Hawaii. So who was he meeting with? Anyone can google me or my husbands names and we pop right up. Maybe not all our info, but you can at least find something with our name on it. In fact, I googled ONE of my names and a pic popped right up. I wonder where he sent those roses to? It seems really fishy to me. Just my opinion and nothing but facts can really change that.

But with celebrities track records over the past 50-60 years. Nothing surprises me now days. I am just at loss rather she was real or fake. Rather he was joking. I do not know what to think.
