I understand some people are worried about his development, or lack there of. It was said that he has a hard time understanding the hand signals and getting the offense ready to go. Is it possible that, since it was actually a walk-on QB sending in the signals, maybe the signals were "fumbled" when giving them to Golson? Maybe he was a little confused with the signals. Maybe if Rees and/or Hendrix are on the sidelines doing the signals, Golson would be getting the correct signals? Not saying the kid got them wrong during the spring game, but it's possible. Give Golson the ball. Let him learn against Navy and Purdue. We should be able to overcome the learning curve in those games. He gets confidence, experience and the bugs out of his system. He provides us the greatest upside, so get him in there. He can make up for any mistakes he makes with his feet and his arm. Teams can't just sit back and control the game. I believe Everett is our guy. Go Irish!!!

Good post, but one thing....
--- Kelly focuses on details, nuances, schemes, management, etc.
Golsen will have to show he can handle these things that are important to Kelly...
--- just the way it is IMO.
Golson should start, and the kid didn't send the signals in wrong.
Since Rees also wasn't able to get plays off on time during the spring game, and repeatedly incurred delay of game penalties or had to call timeouts last season, I doubt seriously if this is some kind of problem with Golson.
You nailed it there PatH72! Golson did just as good getting plays in as Rees, who had delays of game in the Spring Game as well as throughout all of last season!
