Remember the guy Tubby wanted to hire but the U of Minn rejected the hiring? Jimmy Williams already has a negligent misrepresentation suit against the U but now he also has a suing Tubby, requesting damaages in excess of $50,000.
Williams is alleging fraud and negligent misrepresentation. He said he has been unable to find alternative employment as a coach because of the damage caused by Smith's "false representations of authority."
I am not in his shoes, so I don't know what he is goign through, but it would seem suing the guy who wanted to hire isn't going to help you get a job either. I'm also not a lawyer but it seems like a stretch to me that you can prove that Tubby was fraudulent in this process. And then I get back to if you can't prove it then you get nothing and your chances of landing a job are much slimmer.
- Scout has thier top 10 players from Minnesota. No surprise that Henderson is #1, then in order it is Gjere, Beau Allen, Tobi Okuyemi and Lamonte Edwards to round out the top 5.
- Gopher volleyball has a former Shakopee standout transferring back. Jess Menden (ed note: she's cute click on the link :) ) originally signed with TCU and is coming back to the U.
- I always find this topic very interesting. The interplay between bloggers and traditional media is fascinating and while I was working at Wolves games I would hear a lot of talk about the struggles of the newspaper and traditional media. Always very interesting.
- Finally, Sid tells us that Travis Busch is getting a special waiver from the NCAA and will be allowed to play immediately should he transfer to another D1 school. Busch is heading to Colorado State. I had a dream about seeing Busch and asking him about it, that's all that happened.
