Did Rutgers just win the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl?

As a result, the school must vacate 21 victories from the 2012-13 season - when the Fighting Irish made a run to the 2013 BCS Championship Game - and the ensuing 2013-14 season.

In its decision, the appeals committee highlighted that "as a member of the NCAA, the university is subject to the Association's rules, including those related to academic misconduct and the ability to impose penalties for academic misconduct violations. Although all parties acknowledged that Notre Dame did everything right in response to the academic misconduct, the University is now told that it must live with severe sanctions for its actions".

The university also argued that the penalty is excessive since there was no university involvement or knowledge of the academic conduct.

Head coach Brian Kelly of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish calls a play as his team takes on the Temple Owls at Notre Dame Stadium on August 31, 2013 in South Bend, Indiana. The investigation stemmed from academic misconduct involving a former student athletic trainer. The appeals committee confirmed that at the time of the violations, the athletic training student was considered a university employee under NCAA rules.

The NCAA has officially dropped the hammer on Notre Dame after an initial ruling stated the school had to vacate its wins from the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

"The NCAA has not chosen to ignore academic autonomy; it has instead perverted it by divorcing it from its logical and necessary connection to the underlying educational objective", Jenkins wrote. Our concerns go beyond the particulars of our case and the record of two football seasons to the academic autonomy of our institutions, the integrity of college athletics, and the ability of the NCAA to achieve its fundamental objective.

When security staff warned that she'd have to put the bag through security, she circled back to the airport-style luggage scanner. Footage shows the woman emerging from the X-ray machine, hunched over on the conveyor belt before someone helps her off.

Cheryl Wray covers sports for the Alabama Media Group. It was ruled this trainer committed academic misconduct with two of the Irish players and provided impermissible academic extra benefits.

We also have to deal with the various inconsistencies inherent to the NCAA policing a member school - as Jenkins' letter also notes.

Jenkins said had Notre Dame merely expelled the students instead of recalculating grades, had a statute of limitations for past offenses or chose not to punish the students, an NCAA penalty would not have been imposed.

It marks the sixth week this season Notre Dame has been ranked No. 1 in at least one of the two polls and the fifth week it has been at the top of both polls.

"To impose a severe penalty for this retroactive ineligibility establishes a unsafe precedent and turns the seminal concept of academic autonomy on its head".

The committee's decision was announced in a statement issued Tuesday by the NCAA.
