Golson just played his first year of college football. He completed 58.8% of his passes (better than Clausen his first year, and better than Quinn his first and second years). He threw 12 TDs to 6 intercetions, ran for 6 more TDs, and had a QB rating of 131.0. He also led ND to an undefeated regular season for the first time in 20+ years.
He's a quarterback, and his best games are ahead of him. I don't know how anyone could be down on this kid, regardless of his height or weight. He is a very good football player.
