Doug Gottlieb Was Apparently Once Charged With Stealing Credit Cards


by Tommy Gimler

If you’ve been taking in a steady dose of this week’s madness, you’ve probably been listening to Doug Gottlieb’s commentary and rightfully-deserved criticism of the tournament’s officials. But what you might not be aware of is the fact that the former Oklahoma State guard was once charged with stealing credit cards and using them to buy almost $1,000 worth of shit.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Gottlieb was the starting point guard for Notre Dame as a freshman in the 1995-96 season, where he averaged 4.6 points per game, dished out 154 assists, and stole credit cards from three students who lived on the same floor at his dorm. He then sat out his transfer year while attending Golden West College before finishing the rest of his career at Oklahoma State.

But yeah, let’s get back to that whole “using other students’ credit cards to buy sporting goods, jewelry, dinner, and gas” thing. According to his Wikipedia page, which since it’s Wikipedia, it might be about as accurate as an ESPN story, Gottlieb said that he paid back the students, and as a result, he was able to say he left Notre Dame, “when in fact he was expelled.”

At the time, Gottlieb faced up to three years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000 if he would have been convicted, but there is nothing that says he ever was.

From time to time, the incident is brought to light in the comments section of a random online article after Gottlieb harshly critiques a player, coach, or official. But perhaps the best burn of Gottlieb came after he took to social media in December 2013 and asked the Twitter world if there was anything worse than former Notre Dame big man Garrick Sherman’s beard.

You know who came up with something? You guessed it: Garrick Sherman.


Oh snap, girlfriend. Oh snap…
