Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Everett Golson admitted to using "poor judgement" on a test which resulted in him getting suspended for a semester.

Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Everett Golson has admitted to using "poor judgment" on a test which resulted in his semester-long suspension from the university.

Golson spoke with Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples last week to clear the air on the issue. The Chicago Tribune's Brian Hamilton cited Golson's interview with SI and wrote on Oct. 29 that Golson "effectively admitted cheating on a test which earned him a semester-long suspension from Notre Dame -- but also reconfirmed his intent to rejoin the program in January."  

The ex-Irish quarterback poured his heart out during the interview.

"Basically, I had poor judgment on a test. It wasn't due to poor grades.

"That's what it was. I'm just going to leave it at poor judgment...Test situation, yeah.

"My heart was set on going back to Notre Dame. Not necessarily to prove (anything) to anybody. Just doing it for me. I felt like that's something that I started and I didn't want to run away from it...I was going to face it.

 A snippet of the interview was featured in an Oct. 29 Associated Press report with Staples asking Golson if he indeed cheated. The latter said,"Yeeeaaaah, something like that."  

The same report also reveals Irish head coach Brian Kelly and offensive coordinator Chuck Martin have been keeping in touch with the embattled Golson, who is currently in San Diego training under the watchful eye of quarterback coach George Whitfield. 

In closing, Golson said he will be a better person on and off the field once he returns to Notre Dame.

"Just a more polished individual, really. That goes for on and off the field. A lot of people are moreso focused on me getting on the field. I'm moreso focused on me getting back in the classroom, since that's where it happened." 

With him out, Kelly named senior Tommy Rees as the starting quarterback in June, weeks after Golson's suspension was announced. 

Rees, who has led the Irish to a 6-2 record through Oct. 29, has amassed 1,944 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and six interceptions, per ESPN stats.

After taking to Instagram to announce he would be returning to Notre Dame in 2015 after a two-semester suspension, cornerback KeiVarae Russell continued his news-breaking ways on the photo-sharing platform. And if Russell is to believed, Irish fans could get some more good news out of an ugly academic situation. According to Russell, senior wide receiver DaVaris Daniels is prepping for a comeback to Notre Dame in 2015. That flies in the face of initial reports—and a statement from Daniel ...

Why Auburn and Alabama Should Fear Playoff Wild Card Notre Dame

Oct 21 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

As dominoes around the country continue to fall, the idea of having two teams from the same conference in the inaugural College Football Playoff is becoming more likely. It's a long shot, sure. If Auburn or Alabama runs the table—and only one can since the two play each other—there's a really good chance that the winner of the Iron Bowl could have a very strong case to be that second team from the SEC in the playoff. Watch out for Notre Dame, though. Th ...

The futures of the Notre Dame players dismissed for academic fraud are becoming more clear. Two months after four key Notre Dame players were dismissed amid an academic fraud investigation, we're starting to get some clarity on those players' futures. On Tuesday, perhaps the best player of the bunch, DaVaris Daniels, announced on Twitter that he was "done" at Notre Dame. He does not have a degree. Not looking to transfer. ND was my tea ...

This Is the One Weekend We Should All Be Notre Dame Fans

Oct 14 2014 11:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

So wrap your arms around this for the next few days:      Notre Dame as the vanquisher. Notre Dame as the redeemer. Notre Dame as the deliverer over Florida State. I know, you would rather kiss a hot iron than root for the Irish. It's like rooting for the Yankees or Wal-Mart. I am old enough to recall the Cold War bromide. "If the Russians were playing Notre Dame, I'd root for the Russians." Notre Dame became too mighty back in the day and the scorn was born. They played ...
