Nôtre Dame Football Being Investigated for Academic Fraud
Share this article
Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports is reporting via Twitter that Touchdown Jesus might need to have a word with a few in his flock.
It seems there could be a bit of drifting from the Eighth Commandment.
Early days yet, but Forde is a respected journalist of long standing and this sounds daunting.
If the allegations are verified -- and immediate dismissal is an ominous sign -- games in which this foursome played that the Irish won will be forfeited.
It was the university itself that initiated the investigation.
I guess Kelly and the Nôtre Dame administrators didn't probe into this issue enough if it's coming back to haunt them a year later.
Apparently, not even the Jesuit Fathers thought four explanations were sufficient.
Today's news may be a setback for the immediate future, but if any program can find it within itself to recover and move on just when things look the bleakest, no doubt it's Nôtre Dame.
