The Manti Te’o hoax web just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

For the uninitiated, Manti Te’o is a star Notre Dame linebacker whose inspirational story of overcoming the death of his grandmother and girlfriend caught the media’s attention over the past college football season. But Deadspin published an article Wednesday that revealed that the girlfriend never existed in the first place. Central to the complex story is a guy named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, who allegedly either conceived of the hoax with Te’o, or tricked Te’o into believing it.

But this isn’t Tuiasosopo’s only moment in the media spotlight. »
