Everett Golson to Georgia? No thanks. #SendEverettGolsonToSouthCarolina
Which Everett Golson do you remember? The one who started a national championship game as a freshman for a then-undefeated Notre Dame team? The one who almost dethroned Jameis Winston and Florida State last fall?
Do you remember multiple iterations of Everett Golson?
I remember the Everett Golson who lost his starting job on a five-loss Notre Dame team last year.
I remember the Everett Golson who didn’t even play because of academic suspension from the university the year before.
I remember the Everett Golson that is 2-5 as a starter against teams who finished the year ranked in the Top 25 by the coaches. I remember Notre Dame being out-scored in those seven contests by a total of 70 points.
I remember the Everett Golson who has lost five straight games as a starter when the opposition has ended the year ranked (again, by coaches). I remember Notre Dame averaging just 22.8 points in those contests.
Sure, Georgia needs some answers at quarterback. But right now Georgia has three options who didn’t lose to Louisville last season. In that regard, Everett Golson would give Georgia some variety. He and Notre Dame’s 28 points against Louisville last year weren’t enough for a victory. If Georgia wants a quarterback who knows how to lose to Todd Grantham, Golson is the guy. How’s that for a hot take?
And yes, Golson knows what it’s like to play in a national championship. His team scored 14 points against Alabama back in January of 2013. Georgia only doubled that number a few weeks earlier.
If this guy is the answer, what’s the question? I hope it’s, “Who is South Carolina’s next quarterback?”
That’s all I got/
