I have no idea what started this, but it sure escalated quickly. Doug Gottlieb was on a Scout.com chat when heckling caused him to lose it just a bit….

Mike Indiana: How did your mediocre basketball career prepare you for a mediocre broadcasting career?
Doug Gottlieb: (4:04 PM ET ) So your mediocre life can prepare you for a mediocre afterlife…and by the way, which one of us works for ESPN… hey and next time…when I you say 30 minutes or less….get here on time with my pizza.
John (Notre Dame): Doug, I lost my credit card, where were you last night?
SportsNation Doug Gottlieb: (4:27 PM ET ) Ask your mom.
SportsNation Doug Gottlieb: (4:34 PM ET ) Ten years ago I made a mistake…and payed for it…18 years ago YOU WERE your parents mistake and they are still paying for it.

The chatters are obviously referring to Doug Gottlieb’s short stint at Notre Dame where he stole a roommate’s credit card and charged $900 to it, but I’m not really sure what set them off. Far be it from me to call anything out of bounds, but I think both Doug and the chatters just need to chill out. It’s also a shame something someone did as a kid still comes back to haunt them.

Heaven forbid you folks find out some of the stuff I did in College.
