I can not explain to you how hard it is for the starting quarterback of a team that just went to the National Championship game to flunk out of school. You almost have to do it on purpose, but that is exactly what Everett Golson is claiming happened. “I have been informed by the University of Notre Dame that due to my poor academic judgment that I have been suspended from the University for the 2013 Fall Term,” Golson said in a statement provided to ESPN. “I take full responsibility for my poor choices and will do all that is asked of me to regain the trust of my family, friends, teammates, coaches and the entire Notre Dame community.” “My parents and the community I grew up in have instilled values in me that have and will continue to allow me to be successful in the future,” Golson said in the statement. “There have been many lessons learned as I worked to become the starting quarterback at Notre Dame and each was a result of Coach Kelly’s belief in me as an athlete and a person. “At this point, I understand how my integrity could be in question but I want to reassure my supporters that through this experience I will return a better student athlete as well as a better individual. “Lastly, I want to thank the University of Notre Dame for the opportunity already granted and also the opportunity going forth to regain my eligibility in the winter of 2014.” I still think something is missing from the story, but until we know more information, expect Tommy Rees to be your 2013 starting Quarterback for the Fighting Irish.
