The tale of All-American Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o was too good to be true. A story that Te'o's girlfriend had died of leukemia — a loss he said inspired him to lead the Irish to the BCS championship game — was revealed to be a hoax, with the university calling it a sick joke played on Te'o while we're left to wonder if he duped us all. But really, when it comes to Notre Dame and it's folklore, there's always a big difference between the Manti and the myth.
