(Newser) – An angry fan sucker-punched Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen outside a South Bend bar after the team’s loss to UConn, reportedly giving him at least one black eye. Though police say they haven’t had any reports relating to Clausen, sources tell the Chicago Tribune that he got into an altercation at 2:30am Sunday. The fan reportedly said something untoward to Clausen and/or a female companion. Black eye or no, Clausen's expected to suit up this week.
