Ex-Spartan Mandarich finally admits steroid use
Eric Lacy / The Detroit News

Tony Mandarich, the former Michigan State offensive tackle who was taken No. 2 overall in the 1989 NFL draft, admits for the first time, in an interview to be shown Wednesday, that he used steroids while playing for the Spartans.

Mandarich's steroid use at MSU was first revealed by The Detroit News following an investigation in 1989 and 1990.

Results of the investigation, published in March 1990, quoted former players as saying Mandarich used steroids, supplied other players with them and even gave them injections.

Mandarich admits his steroid use in an interview with Armen Keteyian for "Inside the NFL" on Showtime. It will be shown Wednesday at 9 p.m.

Mandarich told Keteyian he had a life-threatening addiction to pain killers and alcohol prior to entering the NFL, and that his addictions continued during his three years with the Green Bay Packers, who drafted him in 1989.

Mandarich said he cheated on his drug test for the 1988 Rose Bowl, won by Michigan State over Southern California, 20-17.

George Perles was MSU's coach when Mandarich played at the school. Reached Tuesday by The Detroit News regarding Mandarich's admission of steroid use at East Lansing, Perles said, "I would never say anything negative about one of our players or ex-players, so there's nothing there."

After three years in Green Bay, Mandarich was out of the NFL until 1996, when he joined the Indianapolis Colts. His last game was in 1998. For his career he played in 86 NFL games, starting 63.

A book, "My Dirty Little Secrets -- Steroids, Alcohol & God -- The Tony Mandarich Story," will be released in March.

Keteyian said he hasn't read Mandarich's book, but told The Detroit News, "(Mandarich) makes it clear this is not a Jose Canseco naming names book. He's taking responsibility for his actions and he's not, as best as I understood it in this interview, not outing anybody else."

Anything to make money


I guess


After 20 years, he comes clean

At least; He is taking responsibility for his mistakes; Unlike Canseco

Very true, but those who are at the college level, and greatly desire to go pro, sometimes lose their sanity and do stupid things! I am glad you understand the truth about steroids, detroitwings82!
