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 Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
