Was Manti Te'o a schemer or prey?

Serial liar Lance Armstrong will supposedly bare part of his soul on Thursday evening. Eventually,Manti Te'o will be asked to do the same. Television cameras will become their separate confessionals and, once both have spoken, they'll have told their versions of the truth.

Armstrong, the disgraced cyclist and career cheater, we were prepared for. His deceit was decades in the making.

But until the mushroom cloud of a Deadspin report enveloped his life Wednesday, Te'o was considered to be all that was right and good about college football. He was more than an All-American linebacker from Notre Dame; he was an ideal, a template for integrity, compassion and humility.

Te'o might still be all of those things. Or none of them. We still don't know for sure.
