    What an incredibly irresponsible and absurd writer. Rumor and general opinion mix into this man's head and he spills it (with little skill) onto the page as if fact.

    Let's find something in your life that you know, we don't, and tell you you are lying about it. Calling a man a liar is a big thing for most -- for this writer it seems to Saturday morning thing.

    Outrage Over a Columnist's Comments

    CBS Sports National Columnist Mike Freeman doesn't waste any time getting to his point while registering his disgust with a possible West Virginia - Missouri BCS title game. Freeman labels the game Hicks vs. Hee-Haws and says, "It would be the least anticipated and most undesirable title game in modern college football history."

    Freeman also says, "The West Virginia mascot is the Mountaineer. He carries a rifle and wears a coonskin hat. Why not go for the stereotype trifecta... Mountaineer dude, and date your sister."

    Freeman's comments are stirring up the ire of internet message board posters, many of whom are calling for his firing. CBS' official response to questions about Freeman's column is, "The opinions of Mike Freeman, a columnist, are not those of CBS Sports.com." However, spokesman Alex Riethmiller says there is an editorial process each column must go through and that Freeman's work was approved for posting to the website.

    Freeman is no stranger to controversy. He resigned from his job as columnist for the Indianapolis Star in 2004 after admitting he lied on his application and on his resume about having graduated from college. Governor Manchin says he's taking the offensive on this issue, contacting not only CBS, but the other national sports media outlets to let them know his feelings about stereotypes directed toward West Virginia.

    Wiki this clown (author)........A longtime New York Times sportswriter who left to join the Indianapolis Star has resigned from his new job after admitting that he falsified his résumé.

    Mike Freeman, who covered professional football and basketball and did investigative reporting at the Times, apologized for telling the Star that he was a graduate of the University of Delaware. He said he attended the school for four years but did not graduate.

    "These were lies," Freeman, 37, said in a statement posted on the Web site SportsPages.com. He added: "This was a terrible and unforgivable manipulation of the facts. . . . It was the only time I have told such falsehoods and no other deceptions have ever appeared in any of my newspaper stories or two books at any time in my 16 years of practicing journalism. Nevertheless, the information I gave the Star was wrong and I will be punished with the loss of my newspaper career."
