The fate of Notre Dame's offense next season is hanging in the balance.
As you read this, former starting quarterback Everett Golson's readmission application is being reviewed by the university administration officials. If you weren't already aware, Golson was expelled from Notre Dame in May for what he later revealed was cheating.
A decision regarding Golson's readmission to Notre Dame won't arrive until December, though should he be accepted, he'd be allowed to practice with the team during its bowl game preparation (he wouldn't be permitted to play in said bowl game, mind you).
For the purposes of this article, let's assume Golson is granted readmission, and the Irish offense picks up where it left off with Golson following a humbling loss in the 2013 BCS National Championship Game.
How would the offense fare with Golson back at the helm?
