Feel free to bring a clue next time.------------------------------------------------ Rocky17 wrote:academically marginal student athletes. ND has been a school greatly respected for placing academics and athletics on the same plane and been much admired for generations. This problem goes away if the student athlete`s academic bona fides are above reproach. Desperation can sometimes cloud the judgement of any person but especially younger folks who do not realize the ramifications of their decision. Joe Schad has alluded to an academic advisor being involved. Hope that is not true.---------------------------------------------

Did you see where your business program measured compared to the country. Michigan's was much higher since someone mentioned their standards earlier. They recruit many of the same players as Michigan, Alabama, Florida, etc... You have a high graduation rate and you have five or more football players known to be cheating(wonder why it is high). Your academic standards may have been difficult 20 years ago but college football has become a money making machine. Every school is trying to get as much as they can and going after the same recruits, even if their past is questionable. ND is doing the same thing as other schools and ND fans should just admit that. Get off your high horse and admit the facts. If you look at the past five years or so your recruits aren't all squeaky clean, nor are the rest of the country. Just admit that your so called HIGH STANDARDS are just BS and an excuse. Don't worry the players will be back, your past history of disciplining players has been questionable also. Michael Floyd???????????

I just think for ND and a few other schools who rate highly academically, they should recruit character as well as GPA and SAT`s to minimize the possibility this could happen and take away from athletic success and tradition.
