This football season was rough on Notre Dame's Manti Te'o. September saw the deaths of his beloved grandmother, as well as his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, who, after suffering a serious car accident was diagnosed with leukemia. Te'o has been struck with tragedy indeed, or he would be if it were true.
While the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, did actually take place, DeadSpin found that there is no such person as Lennay Kekua. Awkward.
