I still think Andy, physics expert that he is and doubting Golson's arm manliness, will be his biggest fan and I expect various justifications from Andy as to why he was right all along on Golson and for him to be wearing a Golson hat, tilted sideways or backward, with an Ed Harvey 'Golson is Golden' commemorative T-shirt in two year's time. Why White People Hate Ed Harvey okay, maybe not on the lid and shirt, but he'll love Golson by the time he's gone. Don't get me wrong, I like the potential of Hendrix, he's just unproven. Kiel, most people forget, is a running quarterback as much as a throwing quarterback. Kelly has set himself up well.
On arm strength, look to 1:36 first, but that is something that is clear throughout. The throw at 1:20 might be more impressive.

Kelly more comfortable as Irish leader
Coach Brian Kelly, whose team is 16-10 during his two years, said he has a different feeling heading into his third season. “It's a comfortable feeling that I know my football team,” he said. “It will be an exciting time for our coaches, our staff, and our players as well.”
“It’s interesting that we saw mostly deep throws from Tommy Rees. While most people are down on the rising junior, if he can throw a more accurate deep ball, this offense would be just fine.”
Please … no.
Thumbs down button just below. Go ahead.
And one other thing:
” … if he can throw a more accurate deep ball, this offense would be just fine”
Keith, please stop this. He is NOT “rising” and the offense would NOT be just fine if he can throw a little deeper. How in the world can you say those things?
Inability to throw a deep ball was hardly his only limitation. He made terrible decisions, fumbled the ball, throws regularly into triple coverage (favoring the red zone for this) and has zero mobility.
Look, I’m not going out of my way to take pot shots at the young man, who I admire in many ways. But when you write stuff like that, it has to be responded to with facts. They were terrible last year offensively, particularly against good teams; near the bottom of the NCAA in turnover margin, and now if the same QB can throw a little deeper the “offense would be just fine”??? That is just patently false.
