    Discover BCS National Championship - Notre Dame v Alabama

    The dust has settled. Everett Golson is leaving Notre Dame. So while the rest of the story will take chase—the wheres and the whys eventually coming out—the only thing that’s important for the Irish is looking at what remains, and how the program moves on from here.

  2. Post-spring stock report: Quarterbacks

    No position had a microscope on it like quarterback did this spring. In one of the country’s most-watched position battles, Everett Golson and Malik Zaire began their work with new offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Mike Sanford… and—well, that was about it.

  3. After chaotic spring, offensive roles can come into focus

    Spring practice is in the books. The Blue-Gold game is history. (Not here, we’ll talk about that thing all week…) So after a frantic few months in the Gug, the focus of Notre Dame’s rebuilt offensive staff can change from planning practices to… planning—well, just about everything.

  4. Five things we learned: Gold 36, Blue 34

    On a perfect day in South Bend, Notre Dame capped off spring practice with a perfect Blue-Gold game. Let’s go over the five things we learned in the defense’s 36-34 victory.

  5. Quarterbacks will be live during Blue-Gold game

    Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl

    With Notre Dame Stadium under construction, this was already going to be a different kind of Blue-Gold game. But when Brian Kelly announced that quarterbacks Everett Golson and Malik Zaire were going to be live for the first half, he confirmed it.

  6. Even without guarantee, Kelly expects Golson to return next season

    Apr 13, 2015, 11:49 AM EDT

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    Brian Kelly can’t be sure that Everett Golson will be here in 2015. But after 25 years of coaching college football, Notre Dame’s head coach feels like Golson’s actions are speaking for themselves.

  7. Irish QB battle will (understandably) head into fall camp

    Apr 9, 2015, 11:19 AM EDT

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    Wednesday, Brian Kelly confirmed what just about every Notre Dame football fan already knew: The quarterback battle between Everett Golson and Malik Zaire will head into fall camp.

  8. Sanford trying to quantify quarterback competition

    With all eyes on the quarterback battle between Everett Golson and Malik Zaire, new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Sanford has a lot on his plate this spring. Still a newcomer to South Bend, Sanford’s not only got to get to know the quarterbacks in his meeting room, but also help decide who will be in charge of piloting the Irish offense.

  9. Irish open spring: Five quick updates from BK

    Mar 17, 2015, 2:00 PM EDT

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    With Irish eyes already smiling thanks to St. Patrick’s Day, Notre Dame fans got a free double-down with Brian Kelly’s opening press conference before spring practice starts tomorrow.

  10. Notre Dame Mailbag: It’s all about the Quarterbacks

    Mar 13, 2015, 5:25 PM EDT

    Everett Golson

    One question, asked a half-dozen different ways. And it’s all about the quarterbacks.

  11. Tracking fifth-year spots and the bumpy road to 85 scholarships

    With Notre Dame on break, the campus is quiet one week before spring practice gets started. But the work inside the Gug is still likely underway, with recruiting efforts for the 2016 cycle pushing forward and discussions about the 2015 roster taking center stage.

  12. Spring solutions: Quarterbacks

    Feb 16, 2015, 2:20 PM EDT

    Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl

    One of the most impressive statistical seasons in school history was flushed down the toilet when Everett Golson could not stop turning the football over. With fumbles, poor decision-making and some plain bad luck plaguing Golson’s otherwise exceptional season, Brian Kelly chose Malik Zaire to be his starter for the Music City Bowl.

  13. Even with competition, Kelly expects Golson to return in 2015

    Jan 8, 2015, 2:33 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Notre Dame

    As Malik Zaire helped the Irish pull off a critical win in the Music City Bowl, all eyes turned to the quarterback who wasn’t playing. After starting the season’s first 12 games, Everett Golson played a complementary role in the Irish victory, completed some clutch passes down the stretch during Notre Dame’s 31-28 victory.

  14. The Golson transfer rumor mill gets started

    Jan 5, 2015, 6:15 PM EDT

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    It took less than a week for the Everett Golson rumor mill to get going. After the ESPN broadcast during the Music City Bowl widely speculated about Golson’s role in the program, a Times-Picayune report claims Golson reached out to LSU about potentially playing out his eligibility for Les Miles and the Tigers.

  15. Five things we learned: Notre Dame 31, LSU 28

    The snickering started early. After choosing to receive, Notre Dame fumbled the opening kickoff. They burned their first timeout before running a play. And when Malik Zaire got tracked down in the backfield on his first attempted run, a tidal wave of social media chatter left the Irish for dead.

  16. Counting down the Irish: Final grades, 10-6

    Dec 28, 2014, 12:10 PM EDT

    Michigan v Notre Dame

    As we get into our Top 10, we begin to understand why the future is still rather bullish for Notre Dame. The five players listed below all have at least one season of eligibility remaining. That means that a group that performed more than admirably this season will be expected to do even more for the team in 2015. (The entire Top 10 has at least a year of eligibility remaining.)

  17. Irish arrive in Nashville, no decision on starting QB yet

    Dec 27, 2014, 10:28 AM EDT

    Notre Dame’s football team arrived for the Music City Bowl on Friday, jetting in from around the country on 19 different flights after spending Christmas with their families. From there, the Irish had their first practice in Nashville, beginning game week preparations with LSU ahead.

  18. Golson and Zaire will share time against LSU

    Dec 16, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT

    Rice v Notre Dame

    Brian Kelly will play two quarterbacks against LSU, with both senior Everett Golson and sophomore Malik Zaire getting an opportunity to take on the LSU in the Music City Bowl. After a regular season where Golson served as the starter all 12 games with Zaire only seeing significant action against USC in the finale, both will be utilized in the Irish’s offensive game plan.

  19. Quarterback battle will take center stage

    Dec 8, 2014, 3:51 PM EDT

    Rice v Notre Dame

    Throughout spring practice, summer workouts and fall camp, Brian Kelly did everything he could to make us believe a quarterback battle was taking place between Everett Golson and Malik Zaire.

    Twelve games and 22 turnovers later, the Irish finally have one.

  20. Five things we learned: Louisville 31, Notre Dame 28

    Kyle Brindza stared down his spot. Envisioned making the kick. Took a final deep breath before waiting for the snap.

    And then he missed it.

  21. The good, the bad, the ugly: Notre Dame vs. Northwestern

    Nov 17, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    Will Fuller, Nick VanHoose

    A little less than 48 hours after Notre Dame’s loss to Northwestern, it doesn’t seem like too many people are over it. So let’s dispense with the introductions and pull the band-aid.

    Here’s the good, bad and ugly from Saturday’s disastrous 43-40 loss to the Wildcats.

  22. The good, the bad and the ugly: Notre Dame vs. Arizona State

    Nov 10, 2014, 10:54 AM EDT

    Lloyd Carrington, Everett Golson

    Give Brian Kelly credit. He found an appropriate nickname for the egg the Irish laid Saturday afternoon, dubbing it, “The Debacle in the Desert” during his Sunday post mortem teleconference. That game shook the core of the Irish, with Everett Golson’s five-turnover afternoon ending Notre Dame’s playoff chances in a first half from hell.

  23. Five things we learned: Notre Dame 49, Navy 39

    Nov 2, 2014, 1:59 AM EDT

    Tarean Folston, Parrish Gaines, Daniel Gonzales, George Jamison

    It seemed too easy, didn’t it?

    Notre Dame’s offense was rolling. The Irish were on pace for 860 yards after the first quarter. Looking unbeatable, Everett Golson was throwing strikes, Tarean Folston was cutting through Navy’s defense and Brian VanGorder’s first attempt at slowing down the Midshipmen’s triple-option attack found enough stops to build a 28-7 lead.

  24. Pregame Six Pack: Showdown with the Seminoles

    Oct 17, 2014, 12:41 PM EDT

    Rice v Notre Dame

    It wasn’t too long ago that an undefeated Notre Dame team was about to head into some of the most hostile territory in all of college football. A double-digit underdog for a primetime, ESPN game, many expected Brian Kelly’s flawed, but surprisingly undefeated squad to be no match for their opponent. Then the Irish pulled away in a tight game and beat Oklahoma 30-13.

  25. Golson set to challenge Seminole defense

    Oct 16, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

    Stanford v Notre Dame

    It’s clear that Florida State’s defense is showing the appropriate respect for Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson. Just look at who they’re comparing him to.
