The Manti Te’o redemption tour is in full swing.
Nearly ten years after he was ridiculed for being catfished, Te’o has made his triumphant return to Notre Dame.
Last month Netflix released the documentary series “Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist” and fans began warming up to Te’o after watching his gut-wrenching story of what he went through at the end of his college career.

On Saturday, Te’o was invited back to Notre Dame before the team’s home game against Cal to give a pre-game speech and he was welcomed with open arms by ND fans at South Bend.

“It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when everything is going right but I want to know who’s with me, who’s gonna jump off that wagon when it ain’t rolling right and start pushing with me? That’s why I’m here, Coach said I need a little bit of push, and I said, I’m there coach.
Former Irish LB Manti Te’o gave a speech at today’s The Victory March:
“It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon when everything is going right.
But who’s gonna jump off that wagon when it ain’t rolling right and start pushing with me?
