Everett Golson at Notre Dame

News broke this weekend that Notre Dame starting quarterback will miss the 2013 season because of what coach Brian Kelly called “poor academic judgment” in remarks to the media today. Golson won the starting job last August just before the start of the 2012 season. He went 10-1 as a starter with his only loss being the 42-14 thumping by Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. Golson, a mobile quarterback, rushed for 298 yards and six touchdowns last season. This made for some photogenic moments on the field last season:
