FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Everett Golson's first love is basketball. Music would seem to be second on the Notre Dame quarterback's list.
He's not too bad at football, either.
A season that started in Ireland and had plenty of tests along the way ends in Miami on Monday night, when Golson and the top-ranked Fighting Irish take on No. 2 Alabama in the BCS title game.
He's made 10 starts this season and won them all, one away from matching the Notre Dame record for consecutive victories to open a career. Of course, tying that mark isn't exactly the biggest prize that Golson will be chasing when the Irish face the Crimson Tide.
Says Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chuck Martin: "He's pretty good at his hobby — this being his hobby."
