Manti Te'o managed to Catfish the media when his press conference was moved from noon to 3 pm.

INDIANAPOLIS -- All of the jokes involving Manti Te'o being Catfish'd were thrown right back in the media's face Saturday when everyone fell for the hoax that was Te'o's noon press conference at the 2013 NFL Combine.
When rumors started percolating that Te'o would speak to the media, the crowd began to grow, quickly. More than 100 media members swarmed to Podium C at the combine waiting for the Notre Dame linebacker to show up.
But just as the rumbling of Te'o being in the building started to crescendo, Gil Brandt of NFL.com (and general combine/draft legend) tweeted that Te'o was waiting on the doctors and wouldn't speak to the press until at least 3 p.m. ET.
And just like that, Manti Te'o managed to Catfish the entirety of the NFL media. At least for a few hours.
Here's hoping when he finally appears the NFL pumps in some intro music for the presser. I'd recommend Invisible Touch.
