    Jurors in the Tubby Smith negligence trial found that the Gophers basketball coach misrepresented his hiring authority. They awarded would-be assistant coach Jimmy Williams $1.25 million. The U is expected to appeal.

    I thought this was about Conrad Black, aka Lord Tubby, and I was thinking that $1.25 million was kind of chicken feed for the kind of lies and fraud he perpetrates.

    In his sidebar column, Jim Souhan sure rips everyone in a power position at UMinn a new one. Right or wrong, and I sort of casually but not too closely follow Gopher sports (with my neice a sophomore there) that's the sort of copy you hope to see from journalists who pen columns of opinion.

    Pay the man:

    A Hennepin County district judge Tuesday reduced the judgment against Gopher basketball coach Tubby Smith and the University of Minnesota from $1.25 million to $1 million it must pay coach Jimmy Williams, but the judge rejected motions by the university to vacate the verdict and order a new trial.

    Between this and the Braylon Edwards thread, it's like "Make IJAG happy" day.
