There is some horrible and shocking news for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team that surfaced on Saturday night. Starting quarterback Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at the university, which leaves the national title runners-up without a starting signal-caller for the 2013 season. The reasons for Golson leaving the school have yet to be announced, though there is some belief that it could be because of a “res life violation.”
“Federal and school privacy laws preclude us from issuing any further comment at this time,” a statement from Notre Dame read.
The news has been confirmed by multiple media outlets:
Everett Golson no longer enrolled at Notre Dame.Tommy Rees is only QB on Notre Dame roster with college starting experience (18 starts)

That is not the way you want to start off a season where you are hoping to get back to the National Championship game. By the sound of things, Golson will not be available for re-enrollment, which spells the end of his career as a Golden Domer.
To make things even worse for Notre Dame, five-star quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel recently transferred to Cincinnati. That means Tommy Rees has the inside track to earn the starting job.
This is certainly a stunning development and we will keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
