07:34 AM ET 11.01 | Right now, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly may not have the kind of control over Everett Golson he once had, thanks to the quarterback's absence from the school. But that may change soon. "From what I'm hearing," Kelly said Thursday after practice, "he is trying to make his way back here sometime in the next few weeks." Should Golson return to campus and be readmitted as expected after a suspension for academic reasons, he is eligible to practice with the Irish as soon as final exams are over -- and he will do so, Kelly said, even though Golson cannot participate in any athletic contests between semesters. "A lot of this is theoretical," Kelly said. "Let's say he's admitted back into school on Dec. 15. He would be eligible to practice. If that's the case, then we would practice him, but he would not, of course, be eligible to compete."

I think you are dead wrong. The complete SI article with info about Everett and his parents leads me to a quite different conclusion.

I would like to hear from some of the ND followers about how they feel about letting a cheater be re-admitted to school and the team. I have read many posts on here about the high academic and ethical standards at ND but this seems to start the contradict that. I am not passing judgment just curious about how the ND'ers feel about it.

Read the SI article this week. Golston is being treated just like any other student would be in the same circumstances.
Are you suggesting that he's being treated differently? At many schools his academic violation wouldn't have been an issue, since there wouldn't have been academics to worry about.

He has spent the last two months at a Quarterback Camp in San Diego with noted quarterback guru George Whitfield. cost? $200 per day.

Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger and Cam Newton attended his camps in the past. Just not during the school year.

Kelly knew what to do. He will get a better QB ( something he is so so on developing.). The kid will play two more years at ND and Domers will be happy about it all and just hold their nose and say " We are better, we are different."

I look at it this way ...

In college with his peers, and in a team atmospere you learn fundamentals that go beyond yourself. I think that is the best place for a young man to learn from his mistakes and work on things like responsibility, accontability, humility etc ... the things that will serve him well in life. I hope he returns to college for reasons more than just football.

Yes, his kinesiology major is nothing to scoff at.

He better, I hear arena football doesn't pay that well and this guy is a poor man's Tony Rice.

I kind of like the fact that the last good QB Notre Dame had was Joe Montana, takes the edge of the ND hubris, well that and the trainwreck of coaches since Holtz was shown the door.

Wow I feel ashamed that I have not read a sports magazine that tells me that an athlete has it just as hard as every other student. shame on me. No I was not trying to suggest anything but you sure did answer defensively. Must have hit a nerve.

I am still in disbelief regarding the NC beatdown last year. I did not see that coming. Kudos to Bama.

Of?

A marginal QB with poor decision-making skills?
