As he has for the past several weeks, the senior co-captain met with the media at the Isban Auditorium in the Gug.
After the press conference, Manti went into “the Jungle” with Jim Rome. You can listen to that interview below, or download it, courtesy of Premiere Radio Networks, on the FIDM podcasts page.
Later, the linebacker spoke with Scott Van Pelt on ESPN Radio.
I am speechless after that conversation with Manti Te’o. One of the most astonishing, inspiring conversations I’ve ever had with an athlete.

Rome has a tendency to speak in hyperboles. He even admits that after the 15-minute interview. But listen to his conversation with Manti for yourself, and you’ll see that there’s nothing exaggeratory about his statement. It’s truly an outstanding interview, and a reminder of how special a student-athlete Manti Te’o is.
I encourage everyone to listen to it, and when you’re done, don’t be surprised if you sit there for a couple minutes – just like I did – speechless.
