Notre Dame QB derby: Andrew Hendrix, the other “favorite”

It’s a four way battle to start at quarterback in Notre Dame, perhaps the most high profile position in all of college sports. But after upon further inspection, it’s most likely a two way competition this college football season.

Last year’s starter Tommy Rees had the inside track to regain the position this year, but the charges he’s facing: underage drinking, resisting arrest and battery, means he’s likely fallen down the depth chart.

Discipline problems like these are hard to ignore, and that will open up the door for the more inexperienced signal callers.

Isn’t it time to get ‘experienced’ with Hendrix? Andrew Hendrix played some last year, throwing 18 of 37 for 247 yards, 1 TD, 2 picks. He also played in the Champs Sports Bowl loss to Florida State, going 3 of 8.  Is he the QB of the future?

Discipline problems like these are hard to ignore, and that will open up the door for the more inexperienced signal callers.

Everett Golson is perhaps the QB of the future, and the future could be this fall.

Golson was the talk of the spring game, as he turned in the best performance of the four quarterbacks, going 11-for-15 passing for 120 yards and two touchdowns.

Notre Dame QB Tommy Rees and sister both have alcohol arrest record

Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees will held to court on May 17th, in which he’ll face four misdemeanor counts, including resisting arrest, battery and underage consumption. But he’s not the only Rees sibling who’s run afoul of the law via alcohol. His sister Meghan Rees was kicked out of the Purdue game last fall and arrested for an alcohol offense as well.

Is this is a new “record” in college football. Lots of starting quarterbacks have gotten arrested for booze-related activities, but how many have had a sister do the same? And just a few months apart at that? This is breaking new ground right? Let’s hope former South Carolina signal caller Stephen Garcia doesn’t have a sister.

Let’s review the situation:
