11:40 AM ET 07.09 | Everett Golson, the quarterback for the Fighting Irish during the BCS Championship game, is planning a return to the team during Spring of 2014. He was suspended back in May from Notre Dame for for the 2013 season for "poor academic judgment." While his future with the university was in jeopardy, Golson made it very clear that he plans on returning to South Bend next season.

At your school the higher ups encourage it, hell they would have gave hiim a brand new car and his family free plane tickets to any tropical island of their choice for cheating the system.

Van, Van those comments are beneath even you. Is that what happened? Did the kid cheat on an exam?

And, apparently, yours isn't nearly as different as you would like everyone to believe if they're thinking of letting him back in. He is getting a second chance because of what he can do on the field. Sorry to burst the bubble, but your school isn't much different.

The assumption in your argument is that Golson is being treated differently than any other ND student who violated an honors code requirement. No one has shared ND's policy on this matter. Do any Domers know or can anyone find out? Then we will know if Golson returning is just because of athletics or is because that is the way ND treats all their students.

+1 This is one of the reasons the domers have so many haters.

Their academic honor code guidelines for assessing penalties is shown here:

IMO, the guidelines are well-thought-out, and appear to encourage appropriate teeth in penalties while making sure students are treated fairly. Of course, no way to know exactly what occurred in Golson's case nor what penalties were assessed, but the school's policy appears fair and balanced to me.

The hole in your argument is that Golson isn't that good on the field.

ND is a Catholic school. Golson confesses his sins. He does his penance (at another school). He is absolved by the priest and returns in good standing. That is the best illustration to provide perspective.

Cheating is not very Catholic like.....Getting a cameraman killed by your football coach is not very Catholic like .......and we won't go there about the priest.

Maybe Aaron Hernandez ought to talk to the priest then everything would be all-right.

And just yesterday the thread was saying he was at the "Crossroads" guess he figured out which way to go .

That's a little beneath even your standards, Hillbilly.

The discussion is about ND readmitting Golson in 2014 (assuming he has met the criteria). Post #11 was providing perspective on why ND would do that.

Well, he has not been accepted back yet. No one at the college insured that he could return.
