Roethlisberger earns college diploma … we have a feeling the graduation party will be low key

Kudos to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for moving his tassel from the right side of his mortarboard to the left (or is it it the other way around? It’s been awhile). He’s now a college graduate. Roethlisberger played for Miami University from 2001 to 2003, and now has earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education from that fine institution, which he collected on Sunday.

Most can agree that Roethlisberger’s personal life was a mess just a couple of years ago, but since then he’s been married and now he has a diploma. My only regret is that Dean Wormer did not live to see him turn his life around.

    He graduated from Miami University, not the University of Miami–not the same t hing.

    It’s what most of us in the midwest call “Miami of Ohio”.

    I think Dean Wormer still has him on double-secret probation. I can’t say I’m not glad he finished his degree and got the diploma. All guys who leave early should do the same.

    Someone should tell him he’s married
