Pretty slow day, but weekends usually are. Hopefully we can have a post with this many links on most Saturdays though. Thanks to UND Irish for today’s pic.
- Apparently USC is investigating the possible recruiting violations involving the recruitment of Joe McKnight. The investigation should be short, they should simply watch this clip from McKnight’s press conference. Bill Cosby is right, kids say the darnedest things don’t they? Most likely this bounces off Teflon Pete.
- Another mock draft has Quinn slipping to the Dolphins with the 9th overall pick. Landing in Miami would not be bad thing for Quinn but I still can’t see the Lions, Bucs, Vikings, and Browns all passing on Quinn.
- NBC has a really nice feature comparing Brady Quinn and Tom Brady. It’s a pretty nice look at the two quarterback that Charlie Weis is credited with mentoring. I don’t know why NBC took the time to make this comparison… haven’t they heard Quinn is a fraud?
- Notre Dame’s hockey team beat Alaska this afternoon to capture the regular season championship. The Irish have another game with Alaska tonight, but the win this afternoon clinched the regular season title.
- Tight end Will Yeatman had a goal and two assists in the 11th ranked Notre Dame lacrosse team’s 9-7 win over #12 Loyola. Yeatman was considered one of the best high school lacrosse players last year and was originally on a lacrosse scholarship before Joey Hiben departure opened a slot for him.
- Jeff Samardzija got a haircut after reporting to Cubs training camp.
