Why I Won't Be Cheering For Old Notre Dame

Well, since you asked — and many of my friends have, some more than once — no, I will not be cheering for my alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, to win big-time college football's championship on Jan. 7. What's really surprising me are those who believe as I do — that two players on the team have committed serious criminal acts, sexual assault in one case, and rape in another — but assumed that I'd support the team anyway, just as it is.
