Everett Golson readmitted by Notre Dame, 2014 return on schedule

Everett Golson was readmitted by Notre Dame Friday, which means he will be available to practice with the football team and begin his path to returning to the Fighting Irish as soon a possible. Golson reapplied for admission to Notre Dame in mid-November after being academically suspended last spring.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said last week Golson would not be practicing¬†with the football team just yet and that he would not be returning to a normal practice schedule until after Notre Dame’s bowl game. Notre Dame faces Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl later this month. Once the bowl game is in the books, Golson will begin to work to regain the starting quarterback¬†job as the Irish begin to transition in to the spring.

Golson was Notre Dame’s starting quarterback for the 2012 season that led the Irish to an undefeated regular season and spot in the BCS Championship Game. Golson passed for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns and he rushed for six more.

With Golson likely to be under center for the Irish next season, the offense could get a bit of a boost. Although Tommy Rees was not terrible as the team’s starting quarterback this season, he lacked the ability to keep some plays alive the way Golson may be able to. Golson will also have plenty of time to get back in to game shape after missing a year on the field.

    I had no doubt. He had about as much chance at not being admitted as Winston had of going to trial.

    How awesome is his life? He gets booted from his school & team, gets to train, doesn’t have to go to classes & gets hack into school & on the football team – all after cheating. It’s good to see such academic integrity!

    How is he supposed to go to class if he was booted from the school.

    If you want to wonder how he paid for living in San Diego and paying for private coaching, then I am all ears

    I believe he plagiarized a take home paper or test. He got caught & then kicked out of school. What more do anti-ND folks want? He didn’t take cash from a booster, he didn’t have an agent pimp his wares to the highest bidder, he didn’t commit nor was he charged for any felonies, he wasn’t alleged to have raped a student, he’s not illiterate & I predict he’ll have a helluva more successful career off the field than most of the other “student-athletes” that compete in division one football. Now…if you want to question why Tommy Rees (ND’s 3rd string QB in 2013) didn’t miss any games after being arrested at a party for resisting arrest & kicking an officer before the 2012 season….that’s fair. Golson let himself, his family, ND fans & his teammates down this season. His absence likely cost ND three wins…and easily two wins. But hey, if you hate ND; you’re going to criticize them regardless of what they do…so knock yourselves out.

    Rees was not allowed to practice with the team in fall practice and therefore could not compete to be starting QB at the onset of the 2012 season. In addition, he was not allowed to accompany the team or participate in the Navy game in Dublin. Kelly did not let him (or Carlo) off scot-free.
