  1. Seems to me he was going to get away with illegal consumption of alcohol until he got violent. Seems to be a pattern with Note Dame athletes. These are grown men and need to be taught they need to act like men, especially when some athletes would love to play at Notre Dame and follow the rules but were not quite as good. Guess when you are a better athlete you can break the rules as long as you play good.
