SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Quarterback Everett Golson says Notre Dame football players are rallying around the loss of four teammates while the university investigates whether they were involved in academic dishonesty.
Golson says he found out a year ago when he was suspended for academic impropriety who is true friends were. He says adversity brings a ''true brotherhood.''
Linebacker Jaylon Smith echoed that sentiments, saying the Irish are family.
Most of the other members of the 17th-ranked Fighting Irish who spoke during Tuesday's media day wouldn't comment about how the team was reacting to the losses of starting cornerback KeiVarae Russell, leading returning receiver DaVaris Daniels, defensive end Ishaq Williams and backup linebacker Kendall Moore, saying it was a team issue.
School officials say they don't know how long the investigation will take.
