Notre Dame investigating academic fraud, Twitter bashed the SEC
Notre Dame dismissed four key players due to an academic fraud investigation that took place this summer.
Some Notre Dame fans, however, tried casting off their frustration with their own team towards the SEC.
Notre Dame reporting academic fraud. Figures. SEC does it right. Books first. Football second.

There’s no way this is happening to my team… This is Notre Dame, not some SEC school with zero integrity

At least Notre Dame takes care of kids who cheat how many SEC athletes can’t even read or speak proper English. — Adam Fisher (@afish32) August 15, 2014
Is Notre Dame auditioning for SEC West? That’s #Heisman candidate material in the ACC. Just need a couple covered up felonies for cake icing

Who says Notre Dame isn’t SEC material?

At Notre Dame they don’t allow cheating…unlike every SEC school… At least we play by the rules

Notre Dame and Brian Kelly should ask the SEC how this academic fraud thing is done #GOIRISH

Notre dame footballs gotta stop pulling this SEC bullshit

Say what you will about the Notre Dame news, but they’ve probably graduated more players than all the SEC schools combined.

Hold on. Notre Dame is getting bashed for doing things the right way? In the #SEC, academic fraud is a grad course.

One thing I will never knock Notre Dame for is their academic integrity. (Looking at you, UNC and every damn school in the SEC.)

This is the price of being a Notre Dame fan where they value academics. If this happened in the SEC it would be swept under the rug

Looks like Notre Dame is out of luck. If only they had standards like SEC schools…..

Notre Dame needs to take lessons from the sec schools on how to cheat without getting caught
— John Francis (@J_Massie) August 15, 2014
In the SEC, they call what Notre Dame did "tutoring."

Why is notre dame the only school to suspend athletes for academics? I'm sure those sec players don't go to class…

I wish Notre Dame would be lenient on their players like most schools. At least the kids ND kicked off know they can go play in the SEC.
