Cubs get an assist

You never know what the outcome of a football game can mean.

Take, LSU's 41-14 win over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. Sure, it wrapped up a top-five spot for the Tigers.

But it also did something else.

It may have helped the Chicago Cubs land pitcher Jeff Samardzija.

At least that's what new Cubs manager Lou Piniella thinks.

At the Cubs' annual fan convention, Piniella reportedly thanked LSU for helping Chicago get its new pitcher, Samardzija, who was also a top baseball prospect.

"I think LSU may have helped make that decision,'' Piniella said.
