Alabama BCS foe Notre Dame loses key quarterback
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A Notre Dame spokesman says quarterback Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at the school. Spokesman Dennis Brown says Golson, who led the Fighting Irish to an undefeated regular season and the national championship game in his first season as a starter during his sophomore season, was no longer enrolled in the school as of Friday. Brown says he couldn't comment on why because of federal privacy laws. Golson was 187 of 318 passing, a 58.8 completion rate, with 12 touchdown passes and six interceptions as the Irish went 12-1, losing 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS title game. He had a pass efficiency rating of 131.01, placing him 62nd among quarterbacks nationwide. The departure of Golson leaves the Irish with senior Tommy Rees, who started 12 games in 2011, senior Andrew Hendrix and freshman Malik Zaire at quarterback.
