This is Notre Dame. We set the bar. We excel morally and socially where other schools fail.
Now, a large majority of the members of this site have decided that "kids will be kids" and that we should forgive Yeatman yet again. But that's the problem. This is the second time in a year. That's a pattern of breaking both team rules, university policy and the law.
If this was a kid from Penn State we'd be talking about how Joe Paterno doesn't discipline his players. If it was a player for an SEC team, we'd be talking about how they're just a bunch of irresponsible thugs.
Notre Dame takes pride in well-behaved scholarship citizens. We emphasize the "student" in student-athlete. We have higher standards.
