09:56 AM ET 02.01 | When quarterback Everett Golson returns to the practice field, coach Brian Kelly won't just hand him back the keys to the program. Kelly put Golson on notice Friday when he heaped praise on quarterback Malik Zaire and issuing a warning to the Irish. "I just want to caution everybody that we have a very good quarterback in Malik Zaire," Kelly said. "I'm not ready to hand everything over to Everett. I love Everett, he played in the national championship game, but I also want to make sure we give everybody an opportunity to compete for that position."

Well coach, ya didn't tell him to take the fall semester off and spend it at a $200 a day quarterback camp in California to put him on special teams . Of course he is the starter. Nobody, not even the players believe it when coaches talk the B.S.

Nothing wrong with some QB competition heading into Spring Practice.
Kelly wants to be sure Zaire doesn't bolt like Gunnar Kiel did, so give him some recognition.
