Quarterback Everett Golson has announced he is transferring from Notre Dame for his final season of eligibilty.

The 22-year-old Myrtle Beach native has been rumored to be going back to his home state of South Carolina to play for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier.

Golson ends an up-and-down career under head coach Brian Kelly that included a trip to the 2013 National Championship Game vs. Alabama and a 2014 trip to the Music City Bowl against LSU.

His first season in 2011,  Golson was redshirted in favor of sophomore quarterback Tommy Rees led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to an 8-5 record.

In May 2013, it was reported that Golson was suspended from Notre Dame because of an academic violation.

The South Carolina is tough when it enters the NCAA baseball tournament.

Florida, their SEC rival and 2011 national runner-up in baseball found that out on Saturday.

Michael Roth pitch well and Erik Payne had a go-ahead bases-loaded triple in a 7-3 win for the Gamecocks.

The Gamecocks have only beaten Florida times in five tries this season, but the win ups their record to 46-17 and have won 22 games in a row, an NCAA Tournament record.

Roth, who is 8-1 on the season, made his eighth appearance in three years in Omaha and pitched 6.1 innings.

Matt Price threw the past two innings for his 12th save.

Jimmie Johnson broke loose on a restart three laps from the ending of the Southern 500 and held over the weekend to give Hendrick Motorsports its 200th Sprint Cup win.

Johnson, whom you can never count out of a race, seemed like he would come up short on low fuel and worn tires and with Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch right on his heels and he was chasing Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman spun out with six laps left to go at Darlington Raceway.

Once the green flag was dropped, Johnson took off from Stewart and cruised to his first win since Kansas last October, breaking a 16-race winless drought for the five-time NASCAR champion and the Rick Hendrick racing team.

It was Johnson’s third win at the South Carolina track, but the first since he swept the 2004 events, the last season Darlington had two cup races.

Denny Hamlin finished second, followed by Stewart, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. finished 17 and his Sprint Cup winless streak goes to 140 laps.
