Last night, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish revealed that starting quarterback Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at the school.

As exposed by Deadspin.com today, Lennay Kekua was an online persona created by California church worker and Te'o's friend Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. Te'o has already made a statement to press regarding this scandal, denying his involvement and claiming to be a victim:Read more... Join the Conversation...
