Time For Pat Haden To Let His Hair Down, Man

Pat Haden is crabby about the late start time for this year’s USC-Notre Dame game, to be played in primetime in defiance of recent South Bend traditions, citing the late arrival time back on the west coast as a potential detriment to the Trojan players. NBC Sports: “Haden didn’t seem to worry about the Irish players who took a red-eye back from LAX after last year’s 8:00 EST kickoff.” Us: Pat (may we call you Pat?), we know you’ve got a lot of moral ground to make up for, following Mike Garrett, but you don’t have to go so far as to pretend your players are all getting up early for church Sunday mornings. It’s all right. We’re all friends here.
