    Not much for Ronniah to tell. He could pretty much sum it up with "I’m a lying, conniving, deceiving low life who enjoys leading others astray"

    What else is there to tell?

    The fact that any "story" should effect any voting for any award is bogus. Te'o, like any other athlete, should have been judged by the merits of his play period. Te'o is a very good player and led his team to 12 wins so I think right there shows he is a good player. But of course, everyone bought into his hype and the general ND hype. I think Te'o realistically was a Top 25 type of player, obviously not the second best player in the country as judged by the Heisman voters. If you look at Kyle Van Noy for example, he was a better player with better stats. But so it goes. ND doesn't owe anybody any apology per se. I can't see how any laws were broken other than the laws of gullibility by Te'o, ND and the general public at large.

    Some investigation.
    What we need to know is when Notre Dame contacted the NCAA.
    This is about more than just Notre Dame. It impacts the integrity of the playoffs and MVP awards.
    Notre Dame knows that. That should have been their first call.
