It's just too fantastic of a scenario to have something have gone on for this long and for Te'o never to have taken the initiative to meet this girl once...not while she was in the hospital, at her funeral, get in touch with her family, etc. It just doesn't make sense and it really requires a ridiculous suspension of disbelief to go along with it. Two to three years is a long time to be that invested in someone. And for the person or persons concocting the hoax...it would just seem too much of a bother to keep it going for so long without something to gain. What guy and their female friend are going to sit around every other day entertaining Te'o's phone calls talking for hours and hours?
