Heisman Watch: Notre Dame’s Everett Golson Goes Head-To-Head With Reigning Heisman Winner, Jameis Winston
There is no disputing which game deserves the Heisman spotlight game this week. Notre Dame and Florida State will offer the biggest stage for a pair of Heisman Trophy candidates, Everett Golson of Notre Dame and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner from Florida State, Jameis Winston.
Big games have meant one thing in recent years for Notre Dame: losses. Big losses. Really big losses.
Until Notre Dame proves it can beat one of the elite programs in college football on a grand stage, the overall assessment of Notre Dame will be that it is good, but not good enough. But this season appears to be up for grabs with plenty of surprises still to come. Can Notre Dame offer one more surprise?
Each week of college football should be seen as a chapter, and the season the full novel. The only thing is, you cannot script drama this good.
“Our guys need to come ready to play,” Dantonio said. “If there’s a message out of this press conference, that would be the message.”
Hoke dismissed concerns about the Big House not filling up for Saturday’s game against Miami (Ohio).
The final scheduled meeting between Notre Dame and Michigan was supposed to be what many recent games in the series have been: an instant classic.
The greatest challenge for Michigan and No. 16 Notre Dame on Saturday might be finding a fitting finale to an on-again, off-again rivalry that repeatedly has produced some finishes.
I admit it… I have been very critical of Michigan football for about 4 seasons now.
Simulating the size and mobility of Golson in practice has been a team effort for the Wolverines.
