Our annual exercise is over and the result is a Top Five that was as close to consensus as possible. On a roster with unproven talent and unprecedented depth, part of what makes this list interesting and fun is that I put zero qualifications on the logic used to rank players. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

Everett Golson spent part of last week as a counselor at the Elite 11 quarterback camp, held at Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. And while he earned rave reviews for his work on the playing field as an instructor, he also earned more than his fair share of kudos for his maturity off of it.

Yes, Brian Kelly will call the plays next season. But that takes nothing away from the responsibilities Mike Denbrock now has. After Chuck Martin took the head coaching job at Miami (Ohio), Kelly turned the keys to the offensive meeting room over to his most trusted advisor, with the clear objective of making the offense…

Saturday morning, Notre Dame’s practice was open to visiting coaches and local media. That means a slew of reports coming in and one guy (me) to read everything and give you some interesting observations.

Everett Golson is finally back where he belongs. After a season away from the Irish, Golson took his first snaps with the football program Monday morning and addressed the media after the team’s first spring practice.

After a year where everything seemingly went wrong at quarterback, it appears that things are on track to get back to normal. In the span of a calendar year, Notre Dame has had immense turnover at the quarterback position. Consider this snapshot heading into spring practice last year: Everett Golson: Three years of eligibility left,…

Earlier this week, freshman basketball player Demetrius Jackson didn’t play against Clemson, causing Irish basketball fans heart palpitations. The highest profile basketball recruit in recent memory has started his Irish career slowly, and Jackson’s mysterious absence had many believing that the future star and coach Mike Brey were on the road to a messy break-up.…

While Everett Golson‘s re-enrollment at Notre Dame still needs a rubber stamp, the quarterback’s imminent return to the football program has been confirmed.

Life changed for Everett Golson in May. That’s when Notre Dame’s disciplinary branch informed Golson that an honor code violation was going to keep him out of the university for the fall semester, ending his ’13 football season before it even started. It was quite a precipitous fall for the redshirt freshman quarterback. From a…

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson, who is suspended from the university this semester for what he called using “poor academic judgment,” spoke on camera for the first time since the incident.

We tackled the important role Everett Golson plays in the offense’s evolution earlier in the week.

No question,…

Early in the Brian Kelly era at Notre Dame, we spent obsessive amounts of time discussing quarterback performance. After watching Charlie Weis spit out two elite college quarterbacks, the Irish bringing in another “offensive guru” gave Notre Dame fans hopes that their new head coach would continue to develop quarterbacks, even if it was with…

With the Irish getting some scrimmage time in earlier this week, there’s a very good chance Brian Kelly and his staff are getting to know the type of football team that they have on their hands. In the case of Everett Golson, that might be a player that’s advanced leaps and bounds. While we all…
Mar 12, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT
It’s been a long time since Notre Dame’s quarterback position has had the type of stability that it now enjoys. So while Brian Kelly likely touted the idea that every quarterback would be competing for the starting job, you can’t blame redshirt freshman Gunner Kiel for reading the writing on the wall. With Everett Golson…

The Stanford Cardinal have quite a feather in their cap. Entering the season, they’re the only team in college football history to defeat Notre Dame and USC in three consecutive seasons.

After a week off, Notre Dame remains in the national conversation, ranked No. 9 in this week’s AP poll and set to play an offensively talented, but defensively flawed team in Miami at Soldier Field.

If you expected head coach Brian Kelly to be excited about Notre Dame jumping into both the AP and Coaches Poll at No. 22, you might be disappointed.
