Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said that suspended quarterback Everett Golson has reapplied to the university after being booted from the school because of academic issues.

Golson admitted to Sports Illustrated that he was caught cheating on an exam last spring, which led to his dismissal. Golson led the Irish to the BCS National Championship Game last season after starting 11 games.

“That application process has been submitted from what I know of,” Kelly said during his weekly news conference, via Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune. “And decisions relative to admissions happen in middle of December.”

I hope he didn't get any help filling out the application, that could prove embarrassing.

I wonder if Golson would have been allowed to "re-apply" after he cheated on coursework if he were just a regular ND student.  Doubtful.  Very doubtful.  Typical hypocrisy at its worst.

@jacksonatl Yes, he would have been allowed to re-apply.  And after the interview process, if he showed progress and growth from the incident, and remorse, he would have been allowed back in.  That's the way colleges work.  It's not about banning someone from life.  College is about growth.  Don't forget these are really kids.  They screw up, and just like "regular" college students, they can get a second chance.  At a lot of schools, the athletic department would have covered the whole issue up.  Not at Notre Dame.

@jacksonatl Anybody is allowed to reapply. You just probably need that expensive application fee which the domers will be happy to take off of you. The question is will they admit someone who has been dismissed for cheating.
