(CBS) Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson put an end to the rumors about why he received a semester-long suspension from the University.

Well, sort of.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Golson explained the reason for his suspension.

“Basically, I had poor judgment on a test,” Golson told SI. “It wasn’t due to poor grades.”

SI’s Andy Staples then pressed the quarterback for specifics, asking directly if he cheated.

“That’s what it was,” Golson said. “I’m just going to leave it at poor judgment …Test situation, yeah.”

Golson also confirmed that he will rejoin the team in January.
