Where Will Everett Golson Transfer? Here Are 8 Possible Landing Spots For The Former Notre Dame QB

first_imggolsonkelly1Twitter/@NDonNBCWhile Ohio State has received a ton of attention about how it will handle its quarterback situation, there had been rumors all off-season that Notre Dame’s Everett Golson would consider transferring, with Malik Zaire threatening to win the starting job for 2015. Back in January, reports came out that 24 schools were interested in Golson, and today, the move became official. Golson is now the biggest-named free agent on the transfer market. We’re aware that there may be some issues with Golson going to the SEC due to a conference rule that graduate transfers must have stayed academically eligible while undergraduate players. We’ll work under the assumption that any school that is interested would be able to find a way to get him on campus, considering that he was connected to multiple SEC schools when the transfer rumors first emerged.Where will the former Fighting Irish star, who led the team to a national championship berth in 2012-13, wind up? Here are eight big-time programs that could definitely use a player like Golson this season.Get Started: Florida >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9last_img read more

Photo: Oklahoma State Coach Mike Gundy Plays Pokemon GO At Team’s Stadium

first_imgPokemon Go at Oklahoma State's stadium.Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy likes to try and keep up with the latest trends. Last time it was hoverboarding; today, it was Pokemon GO.The craze, which is based on the old card game Pokemon, has taken the country by storm. Pokemon GO is played on a downloadable cellphone app, and CNN has a breakdown of what it is all about. Anyway, the app, which is free to download and play, uses GPS to make a cartoony map of your neighborhood and basically anywhere you go. In this colorful, slightly Big-Brother-y version of reality, Pokémon are interspersed throughout, and when you come within range of a Pokémon you can “approach” them and they will show up on your phone.Today, Gundy posted a picture of him catching a Pokemon named Pidgey inside T. Boone Pickens Stadium.Gotta catch ’em all! #POKEmon— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) July 11, 2016Ok, who had Mike Gundy as the first coach to publicly acknowledge that he plays Pokemon Go? Our bet would have been Jim Harbaugh, because, well why not? [ Pistols Firing ]last_img read more
