Golson admits to cheating on test in Sports Illustrated interview

Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson opened up about what led to his suspension from the University of Notre Dame for the fall semester in a video interview with Sports Illustrated, released by the magazine on Tuesday afternoon.

"I had poor judgment on a test. It wasn't due too poor grades or anything like that," Golson told Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated.

"Did you cheat on the test?" Staples asked.

"Yeah, something like that," Golson responded.

"That's what it was."

Staples followed up and double checked it was a test and not a paper or plagiarism or anything like that.

"It was a test situation," Golson told Sports Illustrated.

WNDU first broke the news that Golson was no longer enrolled at the University on Memorial Day weekend. He was then suspended from the university for the entire fall semester.

The plan is for Everett to return to school in January. Golson says he had no intentions of going to another school.

"My heart was set to go back to Notre Dame," Golson said. "Not necessarily to prove to anybody, but just doing it for me. People are focused on me getting back on field. I'm more focused on getting back in the classroom because that's where it happened."

Golson also talks about the loss to Alabama in the national championship game and how hard its been to watch the Irish from a distance this season.
