South Bend, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett
Golson has applied to be readmitted to the school, Fighting Irish coach Brian
Kelly said Tuesday.
Kelly said a decision on Golson's application could come "sometime in the
middle of December" and that the quarterback would be eligible to practice
with the team for a bowl game.
Golson helped lead the Irish to an undefeated regular season last year and a
berth in the BCS National Championship game against Alabama before leaving
school in May.
While the university was mum on the reason Golson left, citing privacy laws,
the quarterback implied in an interview with Sports Illustrated that it was
because he "had poor judgement on a test" and not because of his grades.
Asked if he cheated on a test, Golson replied: "Something like that."
He passed for 2,405 yards and 12 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman last season
and rushed for 298 yards and another six scores.
Notre Dame (7-3) has two games remaining, against BYU and Stanford. Senior
Tommy Rees has started all 10 games at quarterback.
