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.

Grading Performances of Suspended Notre Dame Players' Backups

Aug 30 2014 8:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

SOUTH BEND, Indiana—Academic issues have surrounded Notre Dame football of late, with quarterback Everett Golson making his return and a quintet of players being held out of practice and competition. And while Golson stole the show Saturday with 336 yards of total offense and five touchdowns (two passing, three rushing), it’s worth analyzing how Notre Dame fared without cornerback KeiVarae Russell, wide r ...

Everett Golson's Return, New Weapons Give Notre Dame Pop It Needs on Offense

Aug 30 2014 7:20pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After consecutive three-and-outs, Brian Kelly's hunch that his rebooted spread offense was ready to score points by the bushel looked like wishful preseason thinking. The explosive run game? Went backwards on series one. That dynamic passing game? Golson looked slow to pull the trigger on series two.  But after trading punts early in Saturday afternoon's game, the Irish put their foot on the gas pedal and blew away Rice with 576 total yards in a 48-17 victory in rain-soake ...

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

Aug 30 2014 7:11pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Everett Golson had 600 days off between games. Instead of spending a week shaking off the rust, he stepped onto the field at Notre Dame Stadium in Week 1 and instantly looked to be in midseason form. The Fighting Irish easily dispatched the Rice Owls, 48-17, on Saturday. With a lopsided score like that, it's easy to point out all the good things the Irish did. But it wasn't all puppy dogs and rainbows. As with any Week 1 game, the Irish have some thing ...
