Well that sucks. Podolak was a great announcer. Ultimately it's his fault for putting himself in that position, but to hell with fucksticks that take these pictures solely to put them on the internet. We all have skeletons in our closet. Best to leave them there.

Really impressive Wiz. This site has become total garbage. I used to like it but now it's just junk. I'll be moving on. I'm not an Iowa fan or anything...you've just lost a reader with this crap. And your constant linking to anti-BCS stories is pretty annoying too. Goodbye...find your way again.

Hans Gruber

Heaven forbid someone should have a good time at a bowl game.

He'll be working again, just like Marv Albert. Like Marve, Ed will have to do his 'time'. This society has totall gone ass-backwards.

What "position" did he put himself in. Show me one straight male who, when drunk, hasn't flirted with a woman with large breasts.

They're both of age, and consenting. What. Ever.

Steve

Blaming the messenger does no one a service, but the messenger is the easiest target. Keep up the excellent reporting Wiz, even when you know the infomation won't win you any popularity contests. You have the guts to show it like it is.

Gilberto

Hmm, the breasts aren't that large in relation to the woman. I give him -1 for taste.

wiz hater

Yeah great job Wiz fighting the good fight. Unbiased reporting, just doing your job. This is stupid.

Bob

Umm... Why are you blaming the guy who posts the pictures? Shouldn't Ed have to take responsibility for his own actions. Probably hard for you name-callers to understand, though.

Johnny Canucklehead

See, once you lose your playoff all-purpose yards record to Darren Sproles, everything goes all to hell in a prairie breadbasket.

Sports in Glass Houses

Wow, not one person in favor of such a bullshit story. I am shocked. Although I am not shocked deadspin picked up this trash like it fucking matters.

Sean

"Keep up the excellent reporting Wiz, even when you know the infomation won't win you any popularity contests. You have the guts to show it like it is."

It takes absolutely ZERO guts to post pictures of a man drinking that were first posted on an Iowa State message board. And he didn't do it to win a popularity contest, but he did it specifically to start controversary and get hits.

There's a reason good media and good blogs don't make themselves the news or part of the story. It's a complete and total embarassment that he posted these pictures in a clear effort to garner attention. And he used to be a journalist. Now we know why he was expendable at the paper. A travesty.

Andy

I dont see anything wrong with the pics as long as it doesnt become a regular thing

ex wiz fan........

Damn hate the fact that this guy is human. Suppose it would have been better for the Iowa State Fans if he was peeking down a guys shirt instead.... GO HAWKS!!!! Too bad Iowa State isn't in anything but the Toilet Bowl..........

Mike

As an unbiased WVU fan, this is incredibly lame. Who gives a damn what the dude does in his off-time? What kind of lame-ass fanbase focuses their energy towards trying to get their rival's announcer fired?

My panties aren't in a bunch, yours shouldn't be either

Its okay Corn-eyes, you travel well so ol' Eddy Po-drunk-ass shouldn't be outta work for long!!!!!

The man is a public figure you FOOL! You know nothing about jounalism.

Matt in Cincy

This has nothing to do with journalism. This is strictly sensationalism. Let's pretend he's just a welder blowing off some steam at the end of the day. Anybody care? No. Sure he's a quasi-public figure, but does that mean he has to quit living? It doesn't look like the girl was complaining.

HFMR

I hate even being on this crapass blog to post this utterly meaningless comment, but nothing about posting those pictures was "reporting" and nothing about it was "news."

This site is a f'ing tabloid. Wiz can eat a big bowl of diks.

Kurt

You're right about one thing: Your comment is utterly meaningless. But you forgot infantile.

A Drunk is a Drunk

That's too bad for Eddie. He was one hell of a tough "old-school" athelete. But, everyone knows that in today's society when you are in the public spotlight, you can't fart without people on the other side of the world smelling it. After his '97 incident, another incident losing his wallet in a bar (because he was smashed) and his latest escapade, it's a wonder he hasn't been forced to seek treatment before now. His job is to represent the Hawkeyes in a respectable manner. Nothing wrong with tipping a few back, but go to your room (and take the nice lady with you) and finish your drinking escapade. Personally, I never cared for his scratchy voice that was horse most Saturdays because he was out getting crocked at the Hawkeye Huddle on Fridays. Too Bad, Oh Well! Excuse me, I've got to go take an Ed and wipe my Podolak!

Skip Bell

I've known Ed for over 25 years. He spends time in my restaurant-bar and I have never seen him act inappropriately; drunk occasionally, but never inappropriate. Give a guy a break. I'm sure that whoever took the pictures has never acted like a jerk. RIGHT!
