Notre Dame QB Everett Golson Kicked Out Of School

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson is no longer at Notre Dame.

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson is no longer at Notre Dame.

Notre Dame had a pretty good 2012 football season, as far as college football seasons go.  The team went 12-0 in the regular season, lost in the national championship game, but still bested expectations for a team that has been struggling in recent years.  They were all set to improve.  They might be losing their senior linebacker leader Manti Te’o, but they still had their dynamic dual-threat quarterback Everett Golson to lean on.  Turns out, that’s not the case.  Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at Notre Dame.

Golson was thrown out of school following an academic violation.  That means, given NCAA rules, Golson will not be eligible to play football for anyone in 2013, putting a serious damper on the futures of both Notre Dame and the redshirt sophomore Golson.  Last season, Everett Golson threw for an impressive 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns; he also rushed for 298 yards and 6 touchdowns.  The only other Notre Dame quarterbacks to throw for over 2,000 yards and rushing for over 200 are Jarious Jackson and Joe Theismann.

Still, the Irish have a decent backup in Tommy Rees, the previous starter before Golson.  Rees has thrown for 4,413 yards and 34 touchdowns versus 24 interceptions in three seasons as a quarterback for Notre Dame.  Still, he’s definitely not a rushing risk and it looks like Brian Kelly’s rebuilding project is going to be pushed back another year.

It seems in the last ten years or so, peanut allergies became a thing.  When I was a kid, we got peanut butter sandwiches with lunch, and these days peanuts are banned from schools.  I’m still crazy for legumes, and I don’t know how people can raise their kids to be allergic of everything without […]
