We at If the Six are dedicated to providing readers with the truth behind the news, as our last two posts have shown.

Today we have been digging into the story of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and his imaginary online girlfriend. As the story has unfolded, speculation has grown that Te'o and perhaps Notre Dame itself didn't debunk the story because they thought it would improve the chance Te'o had to win the Heisman Trophy. (He didn't.)

But we at If the Six have learned the story is not that nefarious. Sources not authorized to discuss the matter have told us exclusively that Te'o perpetuated the story for a simple reason:

He wanted to make another imaginary girlfriend jealous.

How callous can you be after all an imaginary girlfriend died here. Where is you sense of civility. In college I had an imaginary girlfriend, she met very simple criteria she was a friend and she was a girl...kinda

She's not half as cute as I thought she'd be. I suppose death'll do that to a girl.
