This has passed (as has the Kelly/NFL story) very quickly.
The Bama rout won't go away anytime soon.
" Here’s what gets me: Te’o didn’t break any laws. He didn’t kill anyone. He wasn’t involved in dog fighting. He didn’t sexually assault a woman. He didn’t get busted for drunken driving. He didn’t steal computers from a public school. He didn’t get kicked off the team for breaking team rules. He didn’t beat up anyone. He didn’t fail multiple drug tests. The last five items on that list, by the way, were done by other players at this year’s Combine.
The All-American linebacker got duped. The finalist for the Heisman Trophy got suckered. The winner of the Senior CLASS Award, which goes to the player who shines brightest on the field, classroom and community, got conned. If that makes you feel good, if it makes you giggle, then good for you. "
people wondering about the hoax, dodging questions with saying he answered everything already and it's time to move on.
Which it freaking is. But not for John Clayton.
Oh my god, ESPN, will you F off? Show me the victim, show me the crime, show me how he hurt the team. You can't.
You couldn't hear what the question was, but no one pressed him on it...so I'm guessing it was something over the line.
He answered one other question with a short "no". I think that question was "are you dating anyone right now?", to which a short "no" is more than the questioner deserved at a football combine.
One other guy kept trying to yell out some sort assholetype question starting with "WHY DID'T YOU DO....?" but he kept getting cut off.
Outside of that, he articulated everything quite well for a 21 yr old in a huge room of reporters looking for blood.
He eventually answered it with a "I did, but it never worked out"
More and more, he acts like he is reporting for the National Enquirer
and after the umteenth stupid repetitive question my wife yells at the TV, "Will you shut the fuck up, he's answered that same question a hundred times already! Move on!" John Clayton, what a jerk silly punk.
The level of stupidity among many football fans is mind boggling.
For one, many are not college graduates, whereas nearly all at a NCAA game are. Two, at some staduims it is like a death defying experience to even get into the stadium -- the fans at some places appear to be on day passes from the local prison.
He did a great job in a tough situation.
There were some complete assholes in that media throng. He persevered.
I have ever seen. His composure and demeanor are astonishing.
It's unbelievable how he conducts himself. Now I have more clarification on why Swarbrick broke. This is one extraordinary individual.
The transcript can't possibly do justice to this interview. For those who don't like video, you are missing something real special here.
Way to go Manti! Just keep being you.
