    Everett Golson, whose heroics under center last season led the Fighting Irish to the BCS Championship game, is no longer enrolled at Notre Dame due to academic violations, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The news broke late Saturday night, with sources telling the Tribune Golson had committed a Residence Life violation before clarifying to reporter Brian Hamilton that an academic violation was the reason for Golson's departure from Notre Dame.

    That's an important distinction, because as NCAA bylaws expert John Infante points out, an academic violation would render Golson ineligible to receive scholarship funding from any college in the upcoming year.

    This is just crazy to me. With the ridiculous (and mildly sickening) amount of academic/personal assistance D1 athletes have available, you must really not give a damn if you aren't passing your classes. Its not like he was an aerospace engineering major.

    Personally, I don't feel bad for the guy at all. He had every opportunity in the world and apparently didn't care enough to do the small amount he had to do to continue his education.

    Good luck in D2 football Everett.

    I'm not a Notre Dame fan, but I will say this.....this academic issue by a starting QB that they speak of would never happen at Alabama or LSU :lmao2:
