Last night it was announced that Everett Golson left school over academic issues.
Notre Dame announced that the starting QB on their national runner-up team was getting kicked out of school. This big college football news was released very late on a Saturday night. On a holiday weekend. Right at the exact moment that the Chicago Blackhawks win a Stanley Cup playoff game. So this press release goes out at the absolute perfect moment for the national media being off the clock; and the local Chicago media being occupied with something else. Well played, Notre Dame SID. Well played.
So what will become of Everett Golson? Will he follow a similar path to Demetrius Jones? Remember Jones, a recruit who was blue-chip among blue-chippers. He also left Notre Dame under less than optimal circumstances.
Let’s see what he’s up to today.
