ND finished field

As rumors swirl out of control, multiple reports have Notre Dame suspending four players for the season as the result of an academic probe.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports became the first mainstream college football reporter to make the call. Yahoo Sports also reports that an academic fraud and Honor Code investigation is currently in progress on campus. ESPN’s Joe Schad confirmed Feldman’s report.

An earlier Tweet from Reddit’s College Football handle named KeiVarae Russell, Ishaq Williams, DaVaris Daniels and Kendall Moore as the four players suspended. They also tweeted that all the wins from the 2012 season would be vacated, leading many to believe that the violations happened at least two years ago. Earlier in fall camp, head coach Brian Kelly said all of his players were in good standing academically.

Neither Fox Sports’ nor Yahoo’s report named names. Numerous attempts to contact Notre Dame have gone unanswered, though multiple sources close to the situation indicate that official word will be coming sooner than later Friday.

    All 4 should think seriously about transferring to UNC-Chapel Hill! Fats will get them a car to drive and the dentist school will get them a place to live and cash. The UNC-CH administration and faculty will make sure they make A’s and even applaud them with academic honors. Think about it guys; you’re meant to be a Tar Heel! At UNC-CH, cheating is taught and expected; you’re led by example.

    Maybe we should all calm down until we hear the outcome of the current investigation.
    And, ignore the trolls who are trying to stir the pot–simply treat their comments as spam to be ignored.

    This is not real! Go back two years for some infraction. ND has to look inside and at the Leadership. OK I know the facts are not out but if it is two years old then fire Kelly and the whole staff including the General Manager and figure out how to procter the test and lead the players. There are so many Coaches they could handle 5 to 8 players each and fix the issue. I am livid if this happens. No more money from me!

    Well i am not gonna jump the gun here, it is what it is and i will wait till i hear from the University of Notre Dame from the mic before i pass judgement. Anywhere else this is no big deal and they sit out a quarter at best but this is ND and it always gets to be bigger than it really is! Relax and buckle in for this season cause from what i am hearing its not gonna start out too great…As always just my opinion and as always….Go Irish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
