Steele, the 26-year-old sideline reporter who replaced Erin Andrews on College GameDay, joined ESPN this year.

In one tweet, he took a picture of a child's Cinderella costume at Target and wrote he was "surprised to see Samantha Steele." (Smooth.) Ponder also sent Steele a tweet that read "hello," but quickly deleted it. (Not as smooth.)
