05:04 AM ET 05.26 | Assuming Golson doesn't re-enroll and by some miracle returned to his role as the starter, the Irish will have to look at the four quarterbacks currently on their spring roster -- only one of whom has starting experience. Tommy Rees is likely going to be the new favorite to win the quarterback job but he's likely going to face competition. Despite being a junior last season, Rees was passed over in favor of Golson, who was a sophomore in 2012 when he led the Irish to the National Championship. Beyond Rees, there is fellow Andrew Hendrix, Charlie Fiessinger and Malik Zaire. Both Rees and Hendrix enter the spring as seniors on Brian Kelly's roster while Fiessinger is a junior and Zaire is still a raw freshman who was ranked as the sixth-best quarterback prospect in the 2013 recruiting class. What is now being magnified is the loss of Gunner Kiel, who transferred to Cincinnati to play for the Bearcats earlier this year.

True, this is a repeat thread and it should not count in the over/under but it has 2 things that the other articles on this topic do not, a mention of Charlie Fiessinger and a picture of Tommy staring down a receiver. Now when Mrs. Fiessinger tells others at the supermarket that her son is an ND qb, she has backup. And what Domer doesn't see that pic is his/her nightmares?

I can't believe more people aren't posting about this. I guess the idea that Notre Dame threads attract posters is disappearing faster than their football players.

The good news is that Tommy Rees will finally return to the pedestal that he earned, and by the end of next season, I guarantee that they erect a solid gold statue of Tommy and put it right in front of Lou Holtz's statue. We're gonna start calling him Tommy Football, and give him a heisman trophy, then you'll all see. You'll all see!!!!!
