NOTRE DAME: Suspended quarterback Everett Golson said he was disciplined by the school for the fall semester for using “poor judgment on a test.”

Golson had previously said he was suspended for using poor academic judgment, but in an interview with Sports Illustrated he specified that the issue occurred during a test.

Asked if he cheated on a test, Golson said: “Yeeeaaaah, something like that.” He finished by saying he was going to leave it at “poor judgment.”
