Samantha Steele is a reporter for ESPN, covering college football.
She is a sideline reporter for ESPN's Thursday Night Football and co-host of ESPNU's College GameDay on Saturday.
Oh and she's also dating Christian Ponder, the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings!
The internet is making a pretty big deal of this, even though it really isn't.
"We do not comment on, or confirm, personal aspects of employees' lives. Regarding any policies, we expect any commentator to raise any relationship that could be a conflict with the sport they cover. This does not fit that scenario as she covers college football."
See? She covers college, and he's a pro.
But people still wanna talk smack about it.
Samantha finally opened up on twitter, saying:
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;)
