Tiger trap

By MATT TAIBBI  |  August 20, 2008

The biggest name involved is that of Charlie Weis’s boy at Notre Dame, Jimmy Clausen, who is apparently under investigation for underage drinking (which has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard — investigating a college student for drinking). Clausen’s trouble began when a Web site showed a picture of him competing in a “beer Olympics,” prompting someone with a very tight ass to look into things further. Weis’s response was classic: “Give me a break. Let’s move on.”

Meanwhile, on a more serious note, Kentucky QB Curtis Pulley was bounced from the team after a pair of busts for weed and speeding. Coach Rich Brooks was going to give him a pass on those offenses, but they turned out to be more serious than he thought — although he’s not saying how they were more serious. “There was basically a little more as I delved deeper,” said Brooks. Pulley was going to be the starter, so that sucks for UK fans. Must be karma for the whole Tim Couch thing.

Let’s give Clausen a record low minus-87 points for the idiotic drinking rap. Pulley we’ll give five. Not for smoking the tree, but for doing it so much that he got himself yanked from a starting job in the SEC.
