    Based on Golson case you can't say that ND does not have a good track record
    in how they handle honor code violations.

    They just don't seem to have a good track record on preventing them in the first place.

    Actually having an academic honor code seems to be working against them.

    "Don't fucking cheat" doesn't seem to be a particularly unique academic honor code.

    Well at least one of these wasn't involved so they have that going for them.

    Yeah Notre Dame isn't much of an "honor code" school. It exists and you have to sign a thing before your exams stating you are abiding by it, but it doesn't really define university life. "Don't fucking cheat" is how most of us thought of it but there were all sorts of stupid shit that was banned that no one followed.

    For example, it was against the honor code for someone else to proof read your essay for you. That's a fucking stupid rule that no one followed.

    I'd argue that a really strict honor code goes against being a truly catholic school but whatever, that's beside the point here.

    Fucking idiot football players cheated. Toss 'em for a semester. Daniels is probably completely done since he already got tossed for a semester.
  10. Rinse and repeat with every college in the country.

    UVA has considered allowing students accused of a single sanction to admit guilt and leave the university for a year rather than face expulsion.

    I did a little academic song-and-dance at The Citadel (The Sentinel for you House of Cards fans) in late March. That school's noted for its honor code. While I was waiting outside the bookstore for my hosts to pick me up, I was really struck by how casually those cadets left their briefcases/satchels (with laptops, smartphones, etc., inside) lying around. You'd never see that devil-may-care pattern at any other school I've taught at or visited.
