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.

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???

Mostly yes, but not as much as they would like others to believe.

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.
