Evidently Lennay Kekua wasn’t the only phony thing about Notre Dame’s 2012 season.
Bruce Feldman confirms that the four have been dismissed from school.

This is very exciting news for Auburn
Great minds must think alike. Just Tweeted a similar sentiment.
Why not for us? We need DBs, and we most definitely believe in second chances …
Because it’s not the Georgia Way?
Yeah but we only do second chances for our own players, to the best of my knowledge we don’t take others rejects.
So if you’re a person who is full bore non-amateurism, pay for play, etc., are you still upset that they cheated and glad they got what they deserved, or do you think its a shame because they shouldn’t have be required to study in the first place?
Why are those the only two choices?
It’s still college. You still have to go to class and make grades. That has nothing to do with amateurism or the lack thereof. I’ve not seen one single person argue that the players shouldn’t have to go to school.
If they have to go to school, their commitment to football should count for a lot more than a pe credit. Why can’t schools give degrees in football?
Devarris is phillip daniels’ son. The Elder was very disappointed that the dawgs did not offer his son. Hope he can bounce back.
We’ve come a long way from the days of honest to goodness student-athletes..now at a some schools it’s athlete-pseudostudent…and at the ugliest village on the plains, it’s thugalete-pseudostudent.
I wonder if the NCAA will strip them of their title of “Most undeserving team ever to appear in a MNC game”, or if this will actually enhance it.
Alternate meaning: t-p, like the stuff on their tree..Oh…wait…
Thugalete-pseudostudent: that’s deserving of our Lexicon, Ug. Now if there was just a definition contest on here at the expense of the Weasle-eagles……
Hmm. First offering: W-e be the t-p?
Clearly Brian Kelly has a discipline problem at Notre Dame.
Yes but when discipline problems cause Brian to blow a gasket, trainers know to immediately repair it by applying a smooth coat of Permatex® High Tack™ Spray-A-Gasket™ Sealant evenly around his head
LOL. You ain’t right, but you are funny.
Mark Richt has lost control of ND… sorry, couldn’t resist :)
I’ll give the school credit for quietly investigating and handling the issue themselves.
Too many other schools would launch an all-out attack on the accuser and stonewall the NCAA with their legal staff.
Notre Dame may let some things slide but academic dishonesty is not one of them
How about the St Mary student rape by ND player(s?)? Her suicide didn’t even prick the player’s protective bubble, with ND serving as the condom. Insult upon insult, he(they) played in the NC. The moral corruption is in the same class as Penn St’s. It was even broadcast on ESPN last year after a student put up her name in Gameday background.
Nothing from the NCAA.
I thought the NCAA sexual assault rules and regs only cover man-on-boy action
Sorry DIF. Read your prompt after blogging. I’ve…uh..not been myself lately what with the Amnesian visiting Sacramento and San Diego. Her Facebook lit up like a Christmas Tree when she landed in Sac prior to SD this weekend. She was a very important woman in her community and at her microchip place of work in SD and I am aware of my relative unimportance in her world.
Maybe the smoke break at lunch could account for it, I just don’t know.
It’s enough to drive a man to drink. Holy smokes! Happy Hour already started. I’m free! The dogs can ride in the car with me now. Uh.. sorry-gotta go. I’ll finish apologizing later.
I will give the Domers this: The investigation originated with the school, which investigated it fully and booted the four players before the NCAA, Yahoo! or the NY Times ever got wind. Contrast that with how a similar situation would transpire at Auburn.
Wouldn’t you need academics for academic fraud to occur? This would never be an issue at auburn.
Nick Fairley would resent this if he could read.
I wish I had said this.
It wouldn’t transpire at Auburn, they would give the kids A’s for taking the initiative. At the ugliest village on the plain its all about beating Bama – at any cost.
At Auburn this would be called “academic support” for the student- athlete. Move along, nothing to see here.
The Domers and us Leg Humpers ought to get together and come up with a uniform standard for a wide variety of violations and punishment parameters. Invite other schools with a heart and honor (might only be Stanford) and get a uniform policy passed.
Clearly, Mark Richt has lost control of academic integrity at Notre Dame.
Is anybody aware of an auburn football player ever missing game time because of academics? I can’t think of a single academic suspension at auburn ever happening.
Looks like you are correct Derek.
As an Irish Catholic, I have rooted for the Irish except as an eight yr old on January 1, 1981. I am a Dawg first always and a distant second – a fighting Irishman.
It is sickening that they kick out four players, but like Vandy, covered up an “alleged” rape that happened a few yrs ago by ND players.
We take a lot of shit for our “soft-disciplined” coach but, thankfully, by god we kick douchebags off if they are mentioned for touching a woman/girl. As the parent of 4 daughters, I appreciate that standard.
The barn on the other hand is licking their chops and reviewing tape…
Good comment. I will give credit to them for taking the initiative and acting on their findings, But academic integrity has been sacrificed to some degree at all schools who enjoy success at football and basketball….no exceptions.
It is somewhat enjoyable though to see the cheating at ND and GT get exposed because of their self-righteous alums who have used their adherence to high academic standards as an excuse for failure to achieve on the field of play. Similar to the integrity exposure of Ohio and Penn State recently, they both held themselves up as better than others. You always knew Ohio wasn’t clean but who would have thought Joe Pa had sold his soul?
Ohio St is the auburn of the north – infatuated with beating Michigan at any cost.
Agree, their fanbases are comparably lousy as well.
