FOOTNOTE ON WEIS

C&F hates to leave any thread untied, so he will return to the story of Charlie Weis and his now-rejected claim of malpractice against Massachusetts docs.

The doctors were cleared Tuesday by a jury.

The jury deliberated almost three hours before finding Massachusetts General Hospital surgeons Charles Ferguson and Richard Hodin were not negligent.
Weis, 51, who won three Super Bowls as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, accused the surgeons of negligence for allowing him to bleed internally for 30 hours before performing a second surgery to correct the complication. ...
Mone told The Boston Globe he doubted Weis, who he said was flying back to Indiana and could not be reached for comment, would appeal.
"Obviously, Mr. Weis and I are disappointed. We recognize these cases are very difficult. They involve very complicated medical facts, and the jury listens to very different views on complicated medical facts. Medical malpractice cases are very difficult," Mone told the newspaper.

The decision not to appeal is probably the best for the Notre Dame program, which doesn't need a distraction, and the stomaches of college football fans.

College Football Live is bad enough without Corso talking about internal bleeding.

Meanwhile, Danny Nutt got good news from his doctor.
