Kelly confident QB Golson will be better vs. Miami
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Everett Golson didn't do much last time out to make anyone think he'll be the quarterback to lead Notre Dame back to glory.
His first pass against Michigan was intercepted, the Fighting Irish offense sputtered the five series he was in, and in his final play before being yanked in the second quarter, he lofted up an interception instead of throwing it out of the end zone. He was replaced by backup Tommy Rees, last year's starter, who for the second time this season led the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish (4-0) to victory.
Despite the poor play against Michigan, and the disappointing numbers, coach Brian Kelly remains firmly behind Golson heading into Notre Dame's game against Miami (4-1).
