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.

How to watch Rice vs. Notre Dame: Preview, TV schedule, odds, more

Aug 30 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

Can the Irish overcome a tumultuous end to their offseason and start the season on the right track? It's Act II for Brian Kelly at Notre Dame, with brand new coordinators and new-again quarterback Everett Golson returned from a year-long suspension. It may not be an easy act, however: four players are reportedly under investigation for academic fraud, and the Irish have a tough, back-loaded schedule to deal with. The good news is that the begin ...

Notre Dame Football: Why Everett Golson Is Now More Important Than Ever

SOUTH BEND, Indiana — The last time he started a game, Notre Dame football quarterback Everett Golson was a redshirt freshman. Two years later, a new-look Golson is the vital, valuable engine as the Irish enter the 2014 season. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly made a simple but blunt distinction at the start of fall camp when evaluating Golson. The question posed to Kelly referred to Golson as “the quarterback that took you to a title game.” “I would argue that Everett ro ...
