Student opinion on Notre Dame player's girlfriend

Recent reports question the relationship of a Notre Dame football player. The girlfriend of linebacker Manti Te'o is said to be a hoax, leaving people wondering what is the real truth.

FOX54 spent the day at Georgia Regents University asking students their opinion.

"I find it hard to believe," said GRU student Patrick Joiner.

"It's sounding more and more like scam to me," said GRU student Manihil Jackson.

"I think the whole thing is a scam, I think he was so popular. I'm sure he is very appealing to other females," said GRU student Rod Hill.  

Deadspin.com first broke the story revealing the player's girlfriend may never have existed.

"For one, when they said she had died of leukemia, he never went to the funeral. I find it very hard to believe you can love someone that passionately and never go their funeral," said Joiner. 

There is also the question of whether Te'o believed her to be real but was scammed on-line by someone pretending to be his girlfriend.

However, even on-line dating raises a red flag especially for those who can relate to the life of a football player.

"I know as a football player, there is no shortage of people who would like to date you so why would you need to go online?" said Joiner.  

Was he doped or was it a hoax? What do you think?
