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 Football: Potential Cures for Everett Golson's Inconsistencies

Sep 28 2014 11:11am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Only one quarterback took snaps for Notre Dame football in its 31-15 win over Syracuse on Saturday night, but it sure felt like two different players under center throughout the night. Everett Golson was equal parts head-turning and head-scratching, sometimes looking like the rising Heisman candidate and other times appearing to be a slightly off turnover magnet. Golson’s night was Exhibit A in “How to Frame Statisti ...

Scary, sad weeks for Florida State, Texas A&M, Michigan and Penn State set stage for a scintillating Saturday to come

If we could continue to find our inner pessimism, things might turn out okay. As one of the secrets to happiness, pessimism certainly worked on Saturday when a blase college football schedule wound up hatching some pretty vivid sights. Now comes a thick first Saturday in October with a whopping six games of ranked-versus-ranked, with four unbeaten teams from the top 13 all playing within 75.6 Mississippi miles of each other, with Stanford taking a curmudgeonly defen ...

Notre Dame Still Has a Long Way to Go Before It Can Beat Florida State

Sep 27 2014 11:55pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's not fair to say that Notre Dame went on prime-time television and laid an egg. But the Irish's 31-15 victory over Syracuse produced more questions than it answered.  The Irish survived the type of turnover-plagued performance that we haven't seen since 2011, the year of the Brian Kelly purple face. Three lost fumbles, two Everett Golson interceptions—including a late pick-six that could've gotten the Orange back in the game—put Kelly on the brink onc ...

Notre Dame vs. Syracuse: Game Grades, Analysis for the Fighting Irish

Sep 27 2014 11:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In what was a weird game to say the least, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish improved to 4-0 on the season after defeating the Syracuse Orange, 31-15, at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.  The Irish were able to rack up 500 yards of total offense, but they turned the ball over five times, including four by quarterback Everett Golson. And the defense allowed only one touchdown, but surrendered over 400 yards of offense. So there will be a lot of thin ...

Stanford Football: Are Cardinal Really Ready to Face Notre Dame?

Instead of heading into next week's massive showdown against Notre Dame with an easy fourth win in their pockets, the Stanford Cardinal will hit the road to face the Irish battered and bruised after being pushed to the limit against a Washington Huskies squad.  Even in Washington, the Huskies were supposed to be an easy win for the Cardinal.
