For the first time, Golson used his legs to complement an arm that didn't betray him in a big moment. "I thought Everett grew up today,'' coach Brian Kelly said. He was due for a growth spurt. Before Notre Dame's 41-3 mauling of Miami, Golson had inspired such little confidence in everybody but Kelly that many considered it encouraging to learn that he wouldn't start after violating a team rule — he was late for a meeting. When Golson replaced Tommy Rees on the fourth offensive snap, it quickly became clear that this was the night he had arrived.
