Samantha Steele has a message for her critics
College GameDay host Samantha Steele delivered a gigantic middle finger to her critics today. She took to Twitter to address her relationship with quarterback Christian Ponder.
S/O to all the grown men critiquing my wardrobe/relationship choices. If it werent for y’all, I might’ve forgotten how awesome JR High was;)

And that folks is called a pimp slap. A pretty severe one at that. Steele’s done an admirable job on GameDay and her interview skills/analysis trump that of her predecessor Erin Andrews. Unfortunately, the higher ESPN profile makes her more susceptible to the rumor mill and every move she makes will be scrutinized by writers, bloggers, etc…
I hope for her sake she learns to ignore it. Otherwise, she’s in for a long, headache-filled ride as ESPN’s rising star.
