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.

College Football Rankings 2014: Twitter Reacts to AP and Amway Week 4 Polls

What a difference a week can make in college football. Last weekend, USC was riding high after a 13-10 win over Stanford and entered the Top 10 in both the Associated Press and Amway polls.

Everett Golson's Ability to Carry Notre Dame Is Key Difference in 2014

Sep 14 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

INDIANAPOLIS — On a night when Notre Dame football quarterback Everett Golson wasn’t at his best, he showed how far he has come. A quick glance at Golson’s stat line tells one story. He completed a career-high 25 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns. He rushed for a team-best 56 yards and a score. He didn’t turn the ball over. A conversation with Golson and Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly tells another. “Offensively, missed opportunities for the most part,” Kelly ...

3 Reasons Notre Dame Fans Should Be Worried After Purdue Game

When Notre Dame wakes up on Sunday morning, Brian Kelly's team will likely be ranked in the Top 10.
