In fairness, Notre Dame only allows a couple of admissions exceptions a year to their athletes. They probably walk the walk better than any program in America as far as holding their athletes to mostly the same academic standards as the general body. It was their refusal to cave to a few more exceptions that caused Urban Meyer to not accept the job several years ago, and it's probably why they continue to suck as a program.
