One SEC team contacted Notre Dame about suspended QB Everett Golson


Notre Dame starting QB Everett Golson won’t be suiting up for the Irish this fall, but he plans on returning to UND in 2014.

But according to the Chicago Tribune, one SEC team inquired about Golson and tested the waters to see if he wanted a change of scenery.

On Sunday, a coach from an SEC school contacted a person close to the Notre Dame program to inquire about Golson. He did enough in completing 58.8 percent of his passes for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns with six interceptions in his first year to pique the hopes of Irish fans and the interest of those wondering if he wants a change of scenery.

It’s anyone’s best guess as to which SEC team contacted the Irish, but the Tribune’s Brian Hamilton tweeted later that it wasn’t Ole Miss. So, we’re down to 13 teams.

Golson is from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but I don’t think it was South Carolina and Steve Spurrier. I would go with Arkansas or Tennessee. Both have quarterback questions, and both have new head coaches. Bret Bielema had success with dual-threat transfer Russell Wilson at Wisconsin, and Butch Jones has only two quarterbacks on campus (with two incoming freshmen) and runs a spread system, depending on the quarterback.

Aside from speculating who actually contacted Notre Dame, wouldn’t Golson be much nastier in Gus Malzahn’s offense at Auburn?

  • I don’t believe for a second it was Arky or Bielema. AD Long is trying to make sure we keep things clean after the Petrino fiasco. Besides, Bielema had a chance to go dual threat with Branden Mitchel. How about Auburn looking for a repeat like the Scam Newton affair? That’s more likely.
