Just knowing how these things work behind the scenes, it is possible that Te’o agents wanted the questions pre-approved and ESPN declined.
Either that or they didn’t like the questions Schaap was preparing to ask Te’o. Either way it looks like Te’o is ducking the media as much as his fake girlfriend ducked meeting him in person.
By the way, on @WaddleandSilvy, the guys told me Bristol called. ESPN/Schaap sitdown with Manti Te'o was "scrapped." Just passing it along.
