UPDATE: ESPN Gets Interview with Former Notre Dame Star

As of Friday afternoon, two days had passed since the story of former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'os fake/dead girlfriend exploded on the web.

While Te'o released a statement hours after Deadspin.com published their long, detailed account, he's been silent and avoided answering a number of nagging questions journalists and non-journalists alike have regarding the story and the "relationship."

Word is he's at a combine camp in Florida and has hired Tom Condon of CAA as his agent. Neither have talked.

But that hasn't stopped others from trying to piece together the details of the bizarre story that's rocked the sports world.

For its part, Notre Dame has effectively washed its hands of the story, given that Te'o now has professional representation. But even his alma mater is urging Te'o to come forward, offer details, and clear up the confusion.
