Um, wow. He made the whole thing up?

So this isn't Penn State related, but I put a link up earlier today about a kid in Las Vegas who thought he had received several D-1 football offers from a list of schools that included Oregon and Cal.

There was a press conference and everything, in the school gym. Well then people started saying Cal, the school he 'committed' to, never offered him a scholarship.

So the police got involved and thought that some ass clown who called himself Kevin Riley convinced the high school football player and his family that the scholarship offers for real.

I felt terrible for the kid, I mean to have the whole town at the school, local TV cameras and everything, then to find out that it was all a fucking joke? That's painful.

Turns out the kid made the whole thing up. This is the saddest thing I've heard in a long, long time.

I don't know what's worse, being a big enough idiot to think you are being recruited when you're not or being pathetic enough to make this thing up.
