Michigan AD catfished athletes to teach dangers of social media


In lieu of the Manti Te’o saga, University of Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon went as far as simulating the Te’o-Lennay Kekua hoax with some UM athletes.

Brandon spoke at an event in Toledo this morning, and according to Eleven Warriors reporter, Kyle Rowland, he mentioned that the Athletic Department intentionally catfished some of their athletes.

This is probably not as bad of an idea as it sounds, and it wouldn’t come as shock if other Athletic Departments followed suit to protect them from Lennay Kekua type incidents.
