NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Each of the four quarterbacks up for the starting position threw reps during Saturday’s practice. Who will prevail and when will the quarterback debate end…who knows?
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.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. and it could be a long haul.
Notre Dame is refusing to look ahead. St. Bonaventure can't get caught looking back. Two teams with drastically different perspectives on the women's NCAA tournament will meet Sunday in one Raleigh Regional semifinal. The top-seeded Irish (32-3) reached the round of 16 for a school-record third straight year and for the 10th time in 16 seasons, and they're resisting the urge to peek ahead to a possible rematch with Texas A&M in the regional final. The Aggies - who play Maryland in the other semifinal - beat Notre Dame in last year's national championship game.

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.”
Saturday's practice was already a victory with the Irish getting two big recruiting commitments along the offensive line. But with the team in full pads for the first time this spring, it also gave us a chance to take a look at the physicality of the team, with the UND.
“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.
