FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Everett Golson lacks the catchy nickname and Heisman Trophy of fellow redshirt freshman Johnny Manziel.
But in terms of style, Golson resembles the only quarterback to defeat Alabama this season athletic, quick, a strong arm, ability to scramble.
There are a lot of similarities, said Crimson Tide coordinator Kirby Smart, whose defense was frustrated by Johnny Football during Texas A&Ms victory at Tuscaloosa on Nov. 10.
Both of them are youthful and sometimes youth is a good thing. He doesn't have a very long memory. He forgets it and he's right back to the next play and will make another big play.
People with long memories might recall Oklahomas Jamelle Holieway, the only true freshman quarterback to lead a team to a national title (85), and Bernie Kosar, who did the trick as a redshirt freshman at Miami (83).
Golson will be trying to join them on Monday night, when unbeaten Notre Dame (12-0) plays Alabama (12-1) in the BCS Championship game at Su...

Can Manti Te’o lead the Irish to their first National Championship since 1988?
This is the moment Notre Dame football fans, alumni, players, and students have been waiting for. 24 years since Lou Holtz won the Irish’s last National Championship, and here they stand once again, on the verge of their official Return to Glory in the BCS National Championship Game against Nick Saban...

Music is a huge part of his life, perhaps only topped by basketball.
And in Golson's spare time, he plays quarterback for Notre Dame.
''He's pretty good at his hobby,'' Notre Dame offensive coordinator...
I am already dreading the movie that will surely be made about Notre Dame if it beats Alabama on Monday night in the BCS title game. In these Notre Dame movies, literary license means pouring on the sweetener until it's pure sap.
There will be the touching moment in the Pittsburgh game when coach Brian Kelly (played by Jack Black or the pudgy guy on Modern Family) sagely takes...
NOTEBOOK: After Texas A&M's scrambler Johnny Manziel got the best of Alabama, the Crimson Tide has vowed to make sure that they don't make the same mistakes against Notre Dame's mobile quarterback Everett Golson.

For starters, it's a misleading phrase, in that most historians would tell you Irish luck is not necessarily a good thing. No matter - No. 1 Notre Dame enjoyed its share of fortunate breaks on its way to the BCS title game, with perhaps the bulk of those coming during a wild, wacky, marathon...
