The Brian Kelly era at Notre Dame is about to have another black mark added. Normally we don’t care about NCAA violations, and find this whole thing stupid. That being said, academic fraud does have a different ring to it, and is the kind of thing that will play out differently in public. Here’s Fox Sports with the details:
One year after Notre Dame football lost its starting QB, Everett Golson, for the 2013 season after he was caught cheating on an exam, theFighting Irish team is dealing with the repercussions from more academic fraud. This time, four starters have been dismissed from ND after the school conducted an internal investigation this summer, sources close to the program told FOX Sports. The players being investigated are receiver DaVaris Daniels, defensive back KeiVarae Russell, defensive lineman Ishaq Williams and linebackerKendall Moore. It is unclear at this time if the four players will be allowed to return to the school in the future as Golson has after he sat out the entire fall semester. He returned to South Bend last winter and has won his old starting QB job.
