Clausen reportedly in late night scuffle

Nov 23, 2009, 11:31 PM EST

We’ll find out more tomorrow when Charlie Weis addresses the media, but multiple media sources are reporting that quarterback Jimmy Clausen was involved in a fight late Saturday/early Sunday morning outside a South Bend bar.

First reported by David Kaplan of Chicago WGN-AM radio, the Chicago Tribune’s Brian Hamilton has more of the details.

Starting quarterback and team captain Jimmy Clausen
was involved in an altercation outside a South Bend, Ind., bar in the
hours following a double-overtime loss to Connecticut on Saturday,
taking a punch to the face in the incident, sources told the Tribune.

The Irish QB suffered at least one black eye as a result of the
punch, according to a source. A spokesman for Charlie Weis said he
could not reach the Irish coach for comment Monday night.

A South Bend police spokesman said Monday no police reports were filed over the weekend that involved Clausen.

Details of the brouhaha vary greatly, from Kaplan’s original report, to Hamilton’s story, to Joe Schad reporting on Twitter at ESPN.com that Clausen was “sucker-punched in the face outside a South Bend eatery,” which would fit, because I’d hardly call C.J.’s the scene for a late-night bar fight.

I tend to believe that the truth, as it always does, lies somewhere in the middle. Either way, it’s not the situation you want the captain of your team to find himself in at two in the morning the night after a loss probably sealed the fate of your head coach.

It’ll be interesting to see how ESPN runs this this story. They could play it up like the overblown beer pong photos or talk about how sad it is that someone would be a big enough jerk to fight the starting quarterback of the football team in his own college town the night of a devastating loss.

Either way, here’s hoping Jimmy’s fine and ready to play well against Stanford. I can’t imagine, barring video evidence of Clausen taking a stool to a guy or getting into an Anchorman like brawl, that he’d be suspended for this one.

    To commercialise in conditions of high-performance rather than price, and in order to specialise accordingly, you want to observe the official format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion obviously you cognize the deep properties of the merchandise, and the price, but for place you should remember nearly the type of mass who are willing to give over 4x price of competing production whereas the second-class option may be sold where emphasis is on cost, your merchandise will be suited to places/distributors where the customers will be willing to pay for high-performance. Thank you for this article! I’ve just retrieved a surely surprising source about real marketing Seek it!

    Very interesting way to market on facebook. I also found a way to automate a couple very powerful methods of getting users. You can grab ID by groups or pages or wall posts with this software. Then once you have the IDs you can do a friend add to your user ID or sudo profile. This by passes the captcha codes too. There is also a cool chat program that you can setup scripts and keyword to work with. This program, when I use it I can see a spike in my site traffic. It is sweet…

    A lot of specialists state that loan aid people to live the way they want, just because they can feel free to buy needed goods. Furthermore, various banks offer sba loan for young and old people.
