There should be no more quarterback controversy at Notre Dame with the arrest of returning junior starter Tommy Rees last night. WNDU.com was the first to report the arrest.
The charges against Rees include a felony. He was arrested for resisting law enforcement, battery to law enforcement, minor consumption and public intoxication.Who was Tommy Rees fooling? There was no way he was outrunning anybody without being intercepted. Rees started 12 of 13 games last season for the Fighting Irish as they went 8-5. It's safe to assume he will no longer be in consideration for the starter's job for head coach Brian Kelly.
Police were called to the home on Notre Dame Avenue due to a noise complaint. According to a source, Rees-- who does not turn 20 until May 22nd-- freaked out when he saw police because he was underage and had been drinking. Rees tried to run off and hit an officer in the process of being caught. He was maced before being taken into custody.
In conclusion: Everett Golson just won the starting QB job. Thank you football gods.
