Everett Golson back in school at Notre Dame

Quarterback Everett Golson has been readmitted to Notre Dame after being suspended for the fall semester.

On Friday, December 13, 2013, Notre Dame announced that Golson has been readmitted, but will not be able to practice nor travel with the team for the Pinstripe Bowl.

In May of 2013, it was reported that Golson withdrew from Notre Dame because of an academic violation and other reasons. Assistant vice president for public information and communications said in an email: “Everett is not enrolled at Notre Dame. Federal law and our own policies preclude us from discussing specifics.”

At the time of his suspension, Golson admitted to having made “poor judgment on a test.”
In his first season as the starting quarterback, Golson accomplished much for coach Brian Kelly’s explosive  offensive unit. He was 187-of-318 passing the football for 2,405 yards with 12 touchdowns, 6 interceptions, and a pass efficiency rating 131.8. Golson also rushed for 299 yards and 6 touchdowns on 94 carries. His longest pass play of the season went for 50 yards to wideout John Goodman. Golson’s Fighting Irish finished the season ranked No. 3 by the USA Today Poll and No. 4 by the Associated Press Top 25 Poll with a record of 12-1.

Golson is from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.


6-4 ONU Football places eight on Academic All-OAC Team

By Tim Glon

ADA — Eight Ohio Northern student/athletes were named Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference in football for the 2013 season.

Seniors Josh Bryan, Nick Hovis, Mike King and Jacob Schumer, juniors Patrick Angle and Kevin Rahill and sophomores Matt Chaney and Connor Devine all received the honor.

The award winners must be a sophomore or higher in class standing, maintain varsity status and have a cumulative grade-point-average of at least 3.50.

Bryan is a two-time Academic all-OAC honoree and started all 10 games at safety this season.

He ranked second on the team with 64 tackles this fall and tied for team-high honors with four interceptions on the year.

Hovis was a role player in his four-year career on the defensive line, playing in seven games with one tackle.

King is a three-year starter at defensive tackle, starting 26 games, and played in 39 games in his career.

He is a two-time Academic All-OAc honoree and finished his career with 100 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.

Schumer was a three-year member of the Polar Bear football team as a reserve on the offensive line.

He saw action and was on the 2-deep at left tackle for the last two games of the season.

Angle started all 10 games at quarterback this season after transferring from Youngstown State.

He completed 172-of-276 passes for 16 touchdowns and 1,979 yards with just six interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 137.33.

Angle also had 158 yards rushing with two touchdowns and was named the OAC Offensive Player of the Week on Nov. 11.

Rahill is making his first appearance on the Academic All-OAC squad and is a reserve kicker for the Polar Bears.

Chaney is a two-year letterwinner as a kicker for ONU. He 21-of-23 on extra points and has a 37-yard field goal to his credit for 27 kicking points.

Devine is a two-year letterman as a long snapper and also served as the backup quarterback this fall.

He completed 25-of-35 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns and had a 158.80 quarterback rating.

Devine also ran for two touchdowns.

The Polar Bears ended their season with a 6-4 record and finished in a three-way tie with Otterbein and Baldwin Wallace in the Ohio Athletic Conference with a 5-4 league mark under 10th-year head coach Dean Paul.

Northern also won for the 17th time in the last 19 regular season finales and finished in the upper division of the OAC for the 17th time in the past 18 seasons.

University of Arkansas to continue playing football games at Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium with agreement being extended and amended

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas and the War Memorial Stadium Commission have approved an amendment to modify their agreement to extend Razorback football games at War Memorial Stadium through 2018 while helping accommodate the changing landscape of football scheduling. The previous agreement between the University of Arkansas and the War Memorial Stadium Commission was set to expire at the conclusion of the 2016 season.

As part of the amendment, the University of Arkansas will play one game at War Memorial Stadium in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons. The five games will include two Southeastern Conference games and three non-conference games. The first in the five-game series will be on Oct. 18, 2014, when the University of Arkansas hosts the University of Georgia in an SEC game at War Memorial Stadium. The Southeastern Conference has not yet determined a football scheduling formula for the 2016 season and beyond.

“I am appreciative of Chairman Kevin Crass and the members of the War Memorial Stadium Commission for working in partnership with the University of Arkansas to come to an agreement that extends our commitment for two additional years while allowing us to address future scheduling challenges,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long. “The new agreement will put the University of Arkansas in a better position to respond to scheduling challenges. Our partnership enabled us to work together to reach a mutually beneficial arrangement that provides the Commission with the financial resources it had anticipated to pay off the remaining debt for their recent renovation of the stadium. With this amendment, we have addressed those priorities and extended our agreement two years through 2018.”

As part of the amended agreement, the University of Arkansas will pay War Memorial Stadium $400,000 annually in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The amount is designed to help offset projected revenue from games previously scheduled for those seasons as well as to help satisfy debt incurred on the stadium’s recent renovation project. As part of the amended agreement, the University of Arkansas will not pay a rental fee for games in the stadium during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The agreement amends and extends the most recent contract entered into in 2008 which called for two games to be played at War Memorial Stadium annually through 2016.

“We are pleased that we have come to an agreement that will ensure that the University of Arkansas will continue to play football games at War Memorial Stadium through 2018,” War Memorial Stadium Commission Chairman Kevin Crass said. “War Memorial Stadium and the Razorback football program have a long and rich history. The football program would not have established its statewide following without War Memorial Stadium. Additionally, War Memorial Stadium would not have enjoyed its sustained success without the Razorback football program. This is the essence of a true partnership. Recently, we learned that the University had a need to solve a scheduling problem and we had a desire to extend the contract beyond 2016. As partners, we were able to come to a result that helps both the Razorbacks and War Memorial Stadium. The Commission and I want to express our appreciation to Jeff Long for his openness to this creative solution.”

Arkansas Football Razorgraph: Previews LSU game Friday, November 29; a look back at the Mississippi State game

GAME RECAP, PREVIEW WRITTEN BY Zack Higbee, COURTESY ARKANSAS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

 

Here are  the Arkansas football game notes for this week as well as a RazorGraph from Saturday’s game. The Razorbacks play at LSU on Friday at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.

· LSU is the fifth top-15 team Arkansas has played this season, which ties the regular season school record. In 2011 and 2006, UA played six top-15 teams including the bowl game.

· Underclassmen have made 88 starts this season for Arkansas, with true freshmen making 25 starts, redshirt freshmen starting nine times and sophomores making 54 starts.

· Underclassmen have accounted for 93.4 percent of Arkansas’ total rushing yards, 90.8 percent of total offense, 87.0 percent of total passing yards, 98.4 percent of kickoff return yards, 79.7 percent of all-purpose yards, 56.9 percent of receiving yards, 59.3 percent of touchdowns scored and 57.1 percent of forced fumbles.

· For the 18th straight time, Arkansas and LSU will be playing for the Golden Boot, a trophy shaped like the two states combined. The trophy was introduced prior to the 1996 game and, at approximately 175 pounds, is believed to be among the heaviest trophies awarded in a college football rivalry. Head coach Bret Bielema is 10-2 (.833) in regular season rivalry trophy games in his career. Coach Bielema was 7-0 competing against Minnesota for Paul Bunyan’s Axe and 3-2 against Iowa with the Hartland Trophy on the line.

· Arkansas leads the SEC and is tied for 15th in the country with an average of 4.27 penalties per game, with 18 pre-snap penalties so far in 2013. Through 11 games last year, the Razorbacks had been flagged 67 times with 36 penalties before the snap.

· Arkansas has allowed just 7.0 sacks through the first 11 games, which is the lowest total in the SEC and tied for the 2nd-lowest total in the country. The Razorbacks also lead the SEC and rank 7th in NCAA by allowing one sack every 38.86 pass attempts.
