    I think it's fairly clear he will have killed himself before the draft.

    Interesting article where Chuck Klosterman and Malcom Gladwell go back and forth via email considering this bizarre story. I personally side with Chuck's logic but either way it sheds some interesting perspectives on the whole thing.

    Klosterman totally made up the Gladwell part, with Gladwell's blessing. Just to be funny or prove a point. I mean yeah I know he is friendly with Gladwell but are their writing styles that similar? No. I've read books by both.

    I disagree. I have read books by both as well and respect the observation, however, if you are going to do something like that you disclose it in the footnotes. Probably in the intro, actually. Even with Gladwell's blessing he wouldn't approve to have Chuck speak for him without disclosing anywhere it wasn't Gladwell's thoughts. But that's quite the interesting conspiracy theory you've cooked up over there Tom.

    The hits just keep on coming for Notre Dame..

    Stanley Williams, a four-star running back prospect from Monroe, Ga., loved the on-campus visit he made to Notre Dame on Saturday. "The visit went great," Williams told Will Biggers of Blue and Gold Illustrated, Notre Dame's recruiting site for 247Sports.com.

    Williams recounted his conversation with Notre Dame tight ends coach Scott Booker, who said that an offer could be on the way soon.

    "We had a great talk," Williams said to Biggers. "They said I could be expecting an offer down the road and that I'd have the chance to come play for them and go to their school. It's nice to know that I'll have an offer on the way, so I'm just going to wait for that patiently. Coach Booker said that he would be coming back down to Georgia to see me again, so I'm looking forward to that."

    The trip went really well, according to Williams.

    The trip also never happened. Williams fabricated the trip from start to finish, from the fact that he traveled to South Bend at all to, of course, the in-person meeting with Booker regarding his pending scholarship offer.

    Blue and Gold Illustrated's initial report went up on Sunday; Monday afternoon, the site's recruiting editor, Jason Sapp, added an update: "The report you're about to read is from a recruit that BlueandGold.com has now learned never made it to South Bend for the visit."

    According to Deadspin.com, another 247Sports.com editor, Rusty Mansell, "reached out to Williams to ask if he had gone to Notre Dame." Williams' reply: "No sir."

    Why would Williams fabricate an entire trip? It's not to get his name out there: Williams, a member of the class of 2014, has given a verbal commitment to Georgia and holds additional offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida State and Georgia Tech, according to 247Sports.com's recruiting database.

    A better question might ask why Williams thought he could pull the wool over the eyes of the "robust recruiting community," as Deadspin's Barry Petchesky writes.

    Another question: Is it possible to make it through this entire post without mentioning Manti Te'o? Nope.

    This story makes even less sense than T'eo's did.
