OT: ND QB Golson plans on returning next spring

Submitted by NFG on July 7th, 2013 at 8:24 PM

Golson was quoted stating that he is planning on returning to South Bend in the Spring, (shocking) and vows to never cheat again on any quiz or exam.

It's not the fake references that constitute cheating, but any plagiarization that might have happened beforehand. E.g., if all you used was what you remembered from lecture or other courses, then you needed to cite the lecture or the other courses, since that's where you actually got the information.

But, if I were Notre Dame, I would first tell him that is not his decision to make, and secondly I would have to question if I ever want him back.

We're talking about the football team and coach Kelly, but is he the one who decided on the punishment and second chance or is he just following what the academic side of the university has laid out?  Did Golson get kicked off the football team for cheating, lose his scholarship, so have go somewhere else, or, the more likely scenario, did the university expell him (in which case he's off the football team) and now are going to allow him to come back and once he's a student in good standing, he can play football again.

He suffered public humiliation and a year suspension. If he does it again he's truly an idiot and should be gone. The measure of a man is not his mistake but how he answers that challenge. I GUARANTEE a number of Michigan's revered football players cheated and got away with it...one in particular was in my calc class. During an exam I had a brain fart and froze on a basic formula. Heared a whisper from behind me and I finished the problem and exam. Afterwards I laughed and said thanks, he replied he knew that part but needed me to finish to keep working on his exam...he'd been copying my answers the whole test. Played several years in the NFL and was a standup guy who struggled with math...
Another showed up the first day of anatomy and was "replaced" by a cheerleader the rest of the way...i gave him crap for screwing up the curve. Glass hose fellas...let it go, let him make good on a promise or fail himself.
