It just wasn’t a happy news kind of day for some folks in the football world yesterday.
- Rich Rodriguez may be about to learn that a jury of his peers isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You can almost sense he’s about to be on the butt end of something akin to that scene in The Verdict where the jury asks the judge if they’re limited in awarding damages to the amount that was sought in the complaint. Coach, this is truly a situation where discretion is the better part of valor. Settle, man, settle.
- Meanwhile, they’re packing heat at depositions in the Reggie Bush lawsuit. Sounds bad, but on the bright side, that could open up some endorsement opportunities for ol’ Reggie. (“Smith & Wesson? It’s as good at protection as my offensive line!”)
- And for some reason, Michael Adams has decided now is a good time to pick at a scab and reopen a wound. I have no idea why, but given the source, I’m sure whatever the motivation, it’s petty. Hey, at least no one is making fun of his playoff proposal now!
