I had a chance to have an informal chat with Eric, and he was definitely more upbeat about the whole commencement speech issue. He did mention that the entire ordeal was upsetting at first, but both the school administration and the athletic department bent over backwards for him to make things right. Let's hope that graduation day is a happy day for all, especially Big E.
