Sources: Notre Dame investigating potential academic fraud that could involve football players

Notre Dame administrative officials are investigating instances of potential academic fraud on campus that could include several members of the Fighting Irish football team, sources have told Yahoo Sports.

Sources said four members of the football team were interviewed by school officials Friday: receiver DaVaris Daniels, defensive back KeiVarae Russell, defensive lineman Ishaq Williams and linebacker Kendall Moore. The probe also is looking at non-athletes, sources said.

The situation was described to Yahoo Sports as a potential “honor code violation,” which could result in the ineligibility of the players. Under NCAA protocol, if any fraud that occurred impacted players’ eligibility, the school could ultimately vacate victories. Both Daniels and Russell were significant players during Notre Dame’s 2012 season, when the Irish went 12-0 before losing to Alabama in the BCS Championship Game.

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson missed last season because of an academic issue that was reportedly an honor code violation. This is believed to be a separate situation.

Sources said the NCAA is aware of the situation, but the school initiated the investigation and has handled the inquiry itself to this point. A source described the school’s knowledge of the potential fraud as “recent” and indicated that the academic questions came to light this month.

Multiple requests for comment from Notre Dame officials by Yahoo Sports were not immediately returned Friday afternoon.

In the SEC this would get those kids suspended for at least a half against Towson State.

Brian Kelly is a dirt bag, however I do feel that ND considers its academic reputation and will punish in an appropriate way.  I don't think the NCAA will do anything, how could they, any sanctions would immediately make them look like hypocrites given their response in the UNC situation.

Will they take away the 2012 BCS championship that they didn't win???

More than most others will even pretend to do

Name another big football school, not named Stanford, that would have kicked out 4 players.


FIGHT ON!!!

True but that misses the point. Irish fans would up to this point have you believe these things can't happen at ND (the QB last year not withstanding). You know the whole "we do things the right way" attitude they so love to throw in your face. Fact is they have always been much more like everyone else than the exception to the rule. 

 

I took several months off, needed to cleans the system type thing. Usually do it for a few weeks, this year I kept my promise to stay away and decompress.

Re: Breaking News: Academic cheating at Notre Dame 


How about their fans ( that never typically are allumni) always claiming the Irish are at a huge academic disadvantage since they are an elite academic institution like Stanford and Harvard and can't recruit just any five or four star players out of high school. I hope that BS stops now. Don't kid yourself the issue with Gholson and these four this year are not proof there is systemic cheating and are related?

Re: Breaking News: Academic cheating at Notre Dame 


Hopefully the NCAA will acknowledge that the Notre Dame Fighting Leprechauns should not have been in the 2012 National Championship game.  Many in college football could have told them that well before the game was scheduled.  Those very words have been spoken so many times in the past that it is getting excessively repetitive.

Many times it has been spoken, "Notre Dame does not belong in this bowl game".

Hmmm, Golson was there just 2 years ago, and they didn't do a full investigation then? Could this all be tied together? Inquiring minds want to know.
