A recent article by Fox Sports’ Greg Couch argues Notre Dame let down Manti Te’o amidst the hoax/scandal that has swept the nation.
Couch argued the university didn’t protect him like they should have. He felt Notre Dame went into crisis protection to help protect its reputation instead of Te’o’s.
It was alleged Te’o went to the Notre Dame staff to tell them he felt he had been part of a hoax.
What didn’t set well with me was Notre Dame waited until after the championship game to really put forth an effort into the investigation.
After the story broke, it seemed Notre Dame barely moved a finger because Te’o was no longer their problem; it was up to his agent.
Teams in college sports have been known to lie to protect themselves instead of the players. They fail to tell the truth until it is to late. This is something that needs to be addressed and controlled because it is unfair to the players. Now, Te’o is left to handle the situation on his own.
