As much as it pains me to write this, Golson did not perform his best.
It was not that he played horribly—he just didn't live up to the hype that had surrounded him leading up to the spring game.
Early in the first quarter, he threw a pair of bad passes to George Atkinson III (yes, the running back) that set the tone for the rest of the game.
He also threw an interception just before halftime to safety Matthias Farley inside the red zone, which is disturbing considering his struggles inside the red zone last season.
As I mentioned earlier this week, Golson's pass-completion percentage was under 60 percent last season, a stat he needs to improve this season if he want's to elevate the Irish offense to championship calibre.
Golson himself was displeased with his performance, telling Alex Flanagan in his postgame interview on NBCSN: “I wasn't playing my best today. The details weren't there.”
All in all, Golson has not regressed, and there has been some progress in his confidence and leadership skills, but he is not where he needs to be yet.
