Anyone else hearing...

Anyone else hearing... 


That some of the players have already been cleared and will be back at practice on Monday?

Obviously this is just a rumor, and I would find it hard to believe that their 'thorough' investigation would take 24-48 hours to completely clear some of the players. I'm guessing its most likely untrue, just wanted to see if anyone had heard the same.

Yeah. Posted this in the DAMN thread. But a poster from another site who was out front on the cheating issue. Is now saying that the same source is saying that KR and DD are cleared and will be at practice on Monday. Kinda makes sense if you read some of the things that DD and his dad was saying. At any point. If this is true. It's very good news.

I don't do twitter. But seems as another guy with some connection to ND is also saying the same thing.

Even if they get reinstated to the team this will really hurt us in recruiting. Maybe even more so then all four getting tossed.

I'm not 9f the mindset that this will hurt ND in recruiting. I actually 5hink it may help. It shows that ND is serious when it comes to things like this. You're a student first. Athlete second. And if you decide to cut corners. Athlete or not. You WILL be held responsible. Thats great to me.

P.S. Can you tell me why you think this will hurt recruiting?

I keep hearing this and I don't agree with it. Supposedly the Manti thing was really going to hurt ND in recruiting, then Everett getting bounced out of school was really going to hurt, now this.

Obviously, recruits talk amongst themselves and to players on the current team, but it's rare for a recruit to think about anything other than themselves. Seventeen and 18 year-old kids are likely looking at this like, "wow, sucks for those guys but it'll never happen to me."

They're generally unlikely to make the connection that the university is somehow screwing these guys (if they are, in fact, innocent).

And here's the other thing, the university is handling this in the best possible manner so far. That's the one thing to take away from this at this point. Does it suck that their names are out there? Sure, but if they weren't practicing today don't you think there'd have been questions? Wouldn't it have looked like ND was covering something up?

Part of learning to be an adult is figuring out that sometimes things aren't fair, but you have to push through those times and be the bigger person. If it turns out that there are some innocent players in this situation, then it behooves them to act like men and that includes not talking a bunch of **** about the university to potential recruits.

Not really If you think about It.  If they get cleared by Monday then this thing Is obviously not anywhere as bad as we all thought or feared that It would be.  It would kinda say that we are such a big deal, that an academic investigation (by the way parents, we really do take It seriously) Is a major story In the news.

I'll be pleasantly surprised. Everything I've read from people who are actually in touch with the program say that nothing is clear at this point and that the football program essentially has zero idea what's going on.

Perhaps that's changed in the last several hours, but this would be a very, very quick resolution to this issue.

The reason I'm hopeful is that I'm still flummoxed as to how Russell, and frankly Williams and Moore, ended up in this position.

Russell seems like a super smart dude, I was pretty taken back by his name being thrown around. Christmas has come early if he gets cleared!

Yeah, I probably shouldn't say "I'm flummoxed", even the best and brightest get down to nut-cutting time at some point during every college semester in which they have a couple of papers due and tests in like three different classes all at the same time and decide to cut a corner here or there.

It happens, but you have to know better if you're a football player. I always figured Russell for being a guy who knew better. I hope I was right.

Re: Anyone else hearing... 


Its great news if they do in fact get cleared. However, I would love to see what proof was actually initially brought against these players as well as what was able to clear DD and Russell. I don't think we will ever get specifics as to the hows or whys on this but it would help ease my heart a bit!
