In an interview with Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated, former Notre Dame Quarterback Everett Golson admitted to cheating while attending Notre Dame. Golson helped lead the Fighting Irish to an undefeated season and a National Championship appearance in 2012.
In May, it was revealed that Everett had been suspended for his fall semester. The suspension made him ineligible for football this season. After being suspended, Golson released the following statement via ESPN.com:
I have been informed by the University of Notre Dame that due to my poor academic judgment that I have been suspended from the University for the 2013 Fall Term. I take full responsibility for my poor choices and will do all that is asked of me to regain the trust of my family, friends, teammates, coaches and the entire Notre Dame community.
In the interview, Golson never gets specific about exactly what happened but he did say it had something to do with an exam. Staples asked him about why he never pursued a JUCO transfer Golson had this to say:
My heart was set on going back to Notre Dame. Not necessarily to prove [anything] to anybody—just doing it for me. I felt like that’s something that I started, and I didn’t want to run away from…I was gonna face it.
Everett also talked about how hard it is for him to watch the Irish play without him. He said he has been working with George Whitfield, a well-known and respected quarterback guru. Whitfield has helped Golson alter some of his throwing mechanics.
Golson claims he will return to school a “More Polished Individual,” and his focus is on improvement in both the classroom and football.
Without Golson, Notre Dame is 6-2 with Tommy Rees at the helm. They’re No.25 in the BCS rankings, but it’s obvious this team misses Golson. Personally, I hope he gets it right. He is a fun player to watch and I never want to see anyone throw his or her career away over a dumb mistake.

Earlier this year in late May, Notre Dame Quarterback Everett Golson learned that he would be removed from the football team and expelled from The University for a semester due to cheating on a test in some fashion. Coming fresh off of a BCS Championship Game birth (and eventual 42-14 loss to Alabama) the news was quite devastating for the Irish faithful, as there were high hopes...

Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson revealed why he was suspended from the school this semester in a video interview with Sports Illustrated on Tuesday.

Months ago Notre Dame football fans were rocked with the news that their starting quarterback was being dismissed from the university for an honor code violation. At the time all that fans and media were told was that it was for exercising poor academic judgement.
While we can all pretty much guess what that means it has never been confirmed publicly till now.
Notre Dame forward Natalie Achonwa is expected to miss more than a month with a knee injury.
Coach Muffet McGraw told the South Bend Tribune (http://bit.ly/17WJCSs ) that Achonwa suffered a small tear and she is hopeful Achonwa will be back in four to six weeks. The 6-foot-3 senior who averaged 13.8 points and 9.5 rebounds last season missed nearly three weeks at the beginning of...
This past summer, Notre Dame’s top receiver made headlines by swimming with sharks. But TJ Jones, now a captain for the Fighting Irish, wasn’t just going for a a wild dip on vacation; he’s very much interested in a professional career as a marine diver. He spent part of the summer down in Florida seeing what it’s like working at an aquarium, and was able to take a number...
Last week, Fighting Irish running back Cam McDaniel cemented himself into Internet lore when the below photo, taken during Notre Dame’s game against USC, went viral. As you can see, McDaniel lost his helmet mid-play, yet still somehow looked like he was posing for GQ.

Air Force won’t be going to the postseason, but the Falcons put up a valiant effort for a half against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. In a game that was a massive challenge coming in, let’s look back at how the Falcons fared with respect to the three keys laid out for them.
After an off-season and August camp wrought with attrition to its roster, Notre Dame embarks on the season's final month relatively intact.
As November approaches, the top prospects on Notre Dame's defensive board are broken down. Plus, what positions the Irish are likely to fill and how many prospects they're still likely to add.
Notre Dame's defense yielded 101 rushing yards in the first quarter vs. Air Force's option attack last Saturday. Then the party stopped, and that's par for the course for Bob Diaco's unit since a finely tuned machine from the Naval Academy dominated the Irish in October 2010.
