Saturday afternoon, Jimmy Clausen led Notre Dame to another close loss against another inferior opponent.
Saturday night, the Irish quarterback paid the price… with his face.
ESPN’s Joe Schad reported that Jimmy Clausen was sucker punched by an irate fan outside a South Bend restaurant after having dinner with his parents.
Okay, I get it… I know how it is to be a fan of a college program that’s perpetually underachieving (said alma mater will remain nameless to prevent any heckling). And even though Clausen is almost certainly on his way to the NFL this April, there’s no excuse for such a thing to happen.
He’s still a kid, playing a game he loves for a school and a coach (I presume) that he loves. There’s just no room for this in college football.
European football, on the other hand, with all their soccer hooligans… absolutely! But not here! And especially not in front of the kid’s parents. I mean come on! Have some class, Domers!
