There's gold in them that Notre Dame helmets, and one waitress' pocket

Notre Dame want to keep the gold in its helmets and and out of the pocket of at least one waitress, it seems. The University is going after a waitress who reeled in a massive $29,000 tip, saying it's a clerical mistake and she needs to pay the money back.

In the land of Touchdown Jesus, scooping up plates and taking orders at banquets only gets you $29 in gratuities, apparently:

The school says in a lawsuit that it paid Sara Gaspar the huge gratuity instead of about $29 because of a clerical error. The suit, filed in St. Joseph Circuit Court in South Bend, says Gaspar kept the money without telling the school.

Gaspar says she called the school three times about the unusual payment but spent the money on a car and to pay bills after the school didn't get back to her.

Gratuities are paid to workers by the school as part of the workers' checks.

No word on whether this will affect their BCS rankings.
