This week the Rules Committee takes to Notre Dame, where quarterback play might actually be a team strength for the top-ranked Irish entering Saturday's game with USC.
Rule No. 4,638: This isn't high school anymore. Everett Golson remembers thinking that from the cold sidelines of Notre Dame Stadium -- well, it was in the high 50s that September night, but frigid for Golson -- after being pulled in favor of Tommy Rees against Purdue. The Irish drove for the game-winning field goal. Golson watched it all happen.
Less than 900 miles away, Golson used to do whatever he wanted at Myrtle Beach (S.C) High, where he accounted for nearly 130 touchdowns even before his senior season. That night against the Boilermakers left him trying to figure out what the heck just happened.
It's been two months since then, and Golson sees clearly now. He knows exactly what happened.
