It's true that he could just be admitting to mere small lies to cover up much bigger ones. It does seem weird that he never tried to meet her in person, especially to visit her in the hospital, and that he never really got that suspicious even though there were big red flags along the way. But until there's actual evidence showing that he was complicit the whole time I gotta go with him just being a big idiot.

he actually has talked about Skyping with his parents before in interviews so its not like he doesn't know how to do it.

"Manti Te'o told Notre Dame during its investigation into his fake girlfriend that he repeatedly tried to Skype with Lennay Kekua but she refused, has learned."

That didn't set off any red flags? How did she go about refusing to skype every time?
