The idea that Everett Golson could play a season of junior college football while trying to work his way back to Notre Dame appears to have evaporated almost as soon as it appeared.
Golson was reported to be on the campus of Riverside (Calif.) City College this week in a Tweet from Brad Hoiseth, owner and publisher of JCGridiron.com on Rivals.com, started
The idea that the quarterback, who was suspended for the 2013 fall semester by Notre Dame, could be looking for a place to play and continue his academic work isn't far fetched.
But the Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., struck down the notion that Golson could play for the Tigers.
Riverside Community College coach Tom Craft told the paper: "I don't know who's putting that out there but it's not real, that's false. There's nothing to that at all. That has as much truth to it as Tom Brady's going to be our quarterback. It's just not even close."
Golson, who didn't play as a freshman, went 10-1 as starter and led Notre Dame to the No. 1 ranking and a spot in the BCS championship game. He threw for 2,405 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions and ran for 298 yards with a team-high six rushing touchdowns as a sophomore.
