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.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Arizona State Sun Devils: Odds, Analysis and Pick

Nov 4 2014 9:23am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish must enjoy their trips out west, considering they're 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games visiting Pac-12 teams. The Arizona State Sun Devils, meanwhile, may be on their way to another Pac-12 Championship Game, but they've also been a bit overrated at home recently, going just 1-4 ATS over their last five games in Tempe. So the Golden Domers might have the betting trends on their side when they hit the field at Sun Devil Stadium Saturday ...

Oct 31 2014 1:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Navy’s triple-option offense has been well-documented heading into Saturday’s game, but it will be Everett Golson and Notre Dame football’s offense that must sharpen to go head-to-head with the Midshipmen. With Navy running the option and continually gnawing off large chunks of time from the clock, Golson and the Irish must be crisp and efficient with potentially fewer possessions and l ...

Remember when the 2014 college football season's preseason polls didn't include Mississippi State? Well, through nine weeks of regular-season action, the Bulldogs remain the No. 1 seed. Will they retain that position through the remaining schedule? At this point in the season, each team in the nation is beginning to show its true colors. We have a very good idea of which contenders are for real and which simply put on a good facade for a while. As the upsets continue to pile up each w ...
