Brian Kelly says the plan is to ‘go forward’ with Golson as QB

Everett Golson AP

A solid debut in a 50-10 win over Navy in Ireland has, as expected, earned quarterback Everett Golson the starting job for the Irish for at least another week.

Appearing on CBSSports’ “Rome”, Brian Kelly said his “intention obviously is to go forward with Everett” as the team’s quarterback. Golson went 12-of-18 for 144 yards, a touchdown and interception against the Midshipmen. He looked confident and in control for his first start ever (then again, Navy looked awful and outmatched on defense).

Last year’s starter Tommy Rees was reinstated to the team this week and began taking backup reps in practice. Rees was suspended for the season opener as a result of his arrest stemming from attempting to evade police crashing an off-campus party.

Notre Dame hosts Purdue this Saturday.

    One in the same. Are we still talking about the same college aged student who, when asked by a head coach who was thinking about practice and coaching responsibilites–as most would be–mindlessly told his camera guy that they were ready to getting rolling and said camera guy who, despite being smart enough to be admitted to Notre Dame and being an adult, didn’t say “sorry, I don’t feel safe. I’d quit before I went up there”. Yes, that same guy.
