Not really, they have a spreadsheet provided to them by Teo's rep:
While the online story isn’t clear, Mike Hill of SportsCenter has explained that the source didn’t produce the actual phone records but spreadsheets based on the raw data. The spreadsheets show that, from May 11 through September 12, Te’o made more than 1,000 calls to a number in the 661 area code, where Lennay Kekua supposedly lived. Of the calls, 110 lasted for more than 60 minutes.
Inexplicably, Notre Dame didno to produce cell phone records corroborating the contention that he spent countless hours on the phone with his fake deal girlfriend.

Sorry if I missed it. I haven't read this entire thread.
I'm surprised we haven't heard more from/about her, as it seems she would be just as involved as Tuiososopo (or more).
From the comments:
"I’ve got spreadsheets proving I had 1000+ phone calls with Kate Upton in the last year, in case anyone doesn’t believe me."
so the "spreadsheet " is released after the katie interview?? Did she ask him to release them and he said "yes", then his agents were like "F no, we gotta make some more crap up now".
again, Touiosopo needs to talk
Here's one article that has a brief mention of it.
"The woman said Tuiasosopo and another female had conned others in the past. Tuiasosopo admitted his female cousin spoke to Te'o over the phone as "Lennay Kekua." Tuiasosopo may have allegedly spoken to Te'o as Kekua as well."
It's from an unnamed source who is fearing for her safety.
Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the alleged ringleader behind the Manti Teo girlfriend hoax, reportedly admitted to a church friend in December to having duped the Notre Dame linebacker.

He can't even lie correctly when he is covering up a lie. He stated he used to call her and they would fall asleep on the phone all the time. Their phone conversations would last over 8 hours due to that. Yet from the "spreadsheet" there are a few 100 minute phone calls. No mention of these 8+ hour phone calls he claimed he had.
100 minutes = 8 hours if you account for the time-zone difference.
Again, then, conned them for what? What was gained? Maybe Tuiasosopo is just a sociopath that likes fucking with people for (very) long periods of time, and that's what they're going to say, but I don't buy it. He was getting something out of this. Money/information/whatever.
Question for the tech guys: could phishing be an answer? Could calls to a particular number for a long period of time be a means of some kind of phishing? I have no idea if that's possible and I don't even think it would be a reasonable explanation for this, but I'm trying to think of something that would motivate people to do this.
Even if we accept Te'o's story that he was conned and that he had no hand in this apart from lying after December 6th, there still remains the question of how gullible and emotionally immature he is. He fell in love with a girl he never met. That just screams personal issues.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
This. If he was conned it may sound mean but he mostly was to blame. Some people make themselves easy targets. If he really was so naive as to not question someone he never met and someone he didn't have the time to go see when she was supposed sick. If you're not willing to invest yourself in at least meeting someone face-to-face than frankly you should have known better especially when you claim that it is the love of your life.
ESPN- We were going to run it by Martin,, Martians, Yeah the Martians. They came and said they would blow up the earth if we ran the story. Yea, that's the ticket. The Martian's came and we saved the world.
I don't know enough about math to dispute this.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
If you fly into space, REALLY FAST, like, faster than the speed of CellPhone. And then you fly back FASTER, then you, like, can talk to yer fake dead gf back when she was still alive and just fake.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
As I said a few pages back, this story was pretty much about to simply die with all its unsolved holes still in it, and going on Couric tomorrow made no sense as it had all downside and no upside. When you have been layering lie on top of lie, you'll simply continue to do that, and the only thing that could happen by going on Couric was to put yet something else out that didn't square with what he had previously claimed. It is amazing that you can pay lawyers a few hundred an hour, hire a PR firm, have a network like ESPN/ABC firmly in your corner, and nobody can sit your ass down and tell you to knock it off. All that cash he's spending on "advice" and all he has to show for it is the same shitty advice he can get from all the yes men in his entourage for free. His lawyer and PR people should be canned immediately.

Yeah, do you subtract or add minutes for each time zone crossed?

From what I've read, it was NFL teams who wanted him to give a televised interview. Maybe they want a video reference to fall back on to compare/contrast the answers he gives when he is grilled by NFL GMs(And he WILL get grilled)
I'm sorry, but I can't take a man seriously who'd 'commit himself' (for THREE years); to a woman he's never kissed, carrassed or even met for that matter.
Everything he says is dog poop!

The will to succeed is important, but what's more important is the will to prepare.
Phone sex. Maybe he was in love with a 400 pound Jamaican and didn't know until she got blown away in a hurricane.
He was on the phone with Tuiasosopo during all of those calls.
So there were 1000 calls over a 4 month period? That's about 8 calls per day, EVERY DAY, for 4 months. Without actual phone records I don't buy that.
We are not the same, I am a Spartan
And each call for 8 hours at a time!! He's a time traveler!
And here I thought Roger Clemens went to amazing lengths to lie.
Te'o has blown him out of the water.
What you read is BS then....that's what happens when you read the ND sack licking web sites that you do CS. Sounds like something his douchey lawyers would float out there and lemmings like you would buy. It's fanboys like you that perpetuate this story and keep it going: that's the ultimate irony to me. As hard as ND and T'eo and his "handlers" try to make this go away, it just sprouts legs again because the ND "fans" can't get enough of it.
Priceless.Yeah, I'm SURE that billion dollar corporate entities which comprise the NFL "wanted him to give a televised interview". They have all the resources in the world to do their own background check, REAL big boy investigation, and any thing else they can conjure up...including a 'televised interview'.....rock on FANBOY!!!!!

Holy cow you are an obsessed and pathetic excuse of a human being.
Did you even bother to read my earlier posts when I called Te'o both a liar and a dumbass? Of course not, because that's too much work for "lemmings" such as yourself to handle.
Rock on obsessive creep
