Default Notre Dame Forced To Vacate Wins

Notre Dame will be forced to vacate victories in the 2012 and 2013 football season due to NCAA violations by a student-trainer.

The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions panel ruled the trainer violated ethical conduct rules when she committed academic misconduct for two football players and provided six other players with impermissible academic extra benefits.

Notre Dame was 12-1 in 2012, including an appearance in the BCS championship game against Alabama. In 2013, the Irish finished 9-4. The school must vacate the victories in which the players appeared while ineligible. It is not clear how many of the 21 games those players participated in.

The NCAA decision is the culmination of a case that was made public when players KeiVarae Russell, DaVaris Daniels, Ishaq Williams, Kendall Moore and Eilar Hardy were suspended due for academic violations prior to the 2014 season.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said the school would appeal the penalty forcing the school to vacate wins.

"It was a discretionary action by the committee," Kelly said. "It was student-on-student cheating. Nobody was implicated. The NCAA agreed across the board with that finding. And, (the punishment) was clearly excessive. So, as you know, we're going to appeal this. And one of the options or the clear reasons for the appeal is that the penalty is excessive in its discretion and we believe we have ground there."

Kelly said the penalties won't have an impact on his status as coach. The Irish at 4-7 will have the worst record of his seven-year tenure at the school. They finish the season Saturday at Southern California. A win would give them the possibility of making a bowl game should not enough six-win schools qualify.
