Recap: Notre Dame Press Conference On Academic Fraud Investigation

This morning, we reported that four starters on the Notre Dame football team are facing expulsion pending an investigation into academic fraud. We were told by sources close to the football program that a press conference was scheduled for 3:00 PM ET - however, that time changed when the story blew up and university officials were forced to do some emergency damage control.

The press conference is now live, as of 6:01 PM ET - for those of you unable to watch, we'll bring you updates live throughout the conference.

"Earlier today, we notified the NCAA that we were undertaking an internal investigation into suspected academic dishonesty on the part of several students, including four members of the football team."

Rev. John I. Jenkins, CSC

"We have great confidence in Brian and his staff"
