Boilers Lose Script, Aren’t Crushed By Irish

After the first two weeks, it’d be understandable if Purdue lifted its collective head from the wreck that is the Big Tenteen West only long enough to have it stepped on by Everett Golson and the rest of the Irish steamroller, fresh off its new “relationship” with the ACC and a great start to the season. Fortunately, that didn’t happen. While the Boilers didn’t stay within...

CFB Week 2 TV Ratings: Michigan/Notre Dame Rivalry Ends on Low Note

Considering the lopsided nature of the game, it should be no surprise that Michigan/Notre Dame hit a multi-year low last weekend. Last Saturday’s Michigan/Notre Dame college football game drew a 2.7 final rating and 4.6 million viewers on NBC, down 16% in ratings and 3% in viewership from Michigan State/Notre Dame in week four of [...]

Could this be the ugliest game ever?

  Last season, Purdue went 1-11 but played hard against Notre Dame, their biggest non-conference rival. Notre Dame, despite a rough appearance against a bad opponent, went 9-4 on the season. Notre Dame has a good QB in Everett Golson back under center, they have already manhandled a rival (Michigan) in a high profile game, and they won’t take Purdue lightly this season. For Purdue...

2015 NFL Draft: Everett Golson is Well On His Way to Heisman Discussion and NFL Interest

Back in 2012, his redshirt freshman season and first year as a college starter, Everett Golson was mostly a game manager and occasional running threat in the Brian Kelly offense. He had just three multi-touchdown games through the air (all coming in the last month of his season), and finished the regular season with 11 passing touchdowns, a marginally productive season on a team...

Making the Case for Everett Golson Heisman Watch

Notre Dame is either highly overrated or vastly underrated year after year. This year, I was kind of shocked to see them ranked, despite Coach Kelly’s reputation for recruiting and building programs. In 2014, he got back Everett Golson, who was his starter for much of the 2012 season. That year, Manti Te’o and his girlfriend represented the National Championship runners-up in...
