Syracuse Football Will Probably See Everett Golson Again This Season

New, 9 comments

The guy who torched Syracuse for 362 yards and four touchdowns last season might get another chance in 2015.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Everett Golson is transferring for his fifth year of eligibility and it's looking more and more like the Syracuse Orange will see him again in 2015.

Notre Dame blocked Golson from transferring to any team on their 2015 schedule. That includes four teams Syracuse will play in 2015 as well (Virginia Cavaliers, Clemson Tigers, Pittsburgh Panthers and Wake Forest Demon Deacons). An initial report said that the Irish blocked ten other P5 schools that Golson was considering but that's been denied by ND.

Since then, the reports have been saying that Golson is hot and heavy with the Florida State Seminoles and could end up being the one-year replacement following Jameis Winston's departure. The Orange and Seminoles play October 31.

Before that, there was a lot of talk of Golson going to the LSU Tigers, whom the Orange play on September 26. However, the school would have to get a waiver from the SEC, which doesn't allow graduate transfers that have been disciplined by their former school, which Golson was for academic issues.

There are a few other schools popping up on Golson's radar and the rumor mill and he's not expected to make a decision until after he graduates from Notre Dame this weekend. But if things hold as they are, there's a decent chance Syracuse will see the guy who torched them for 362 yards and four touchdowns last season.
