that Clausen wuld leave after his junior year...giving Crist 2 to 3 years of starting for ND when Crist redshirted his Freshman year.
Golsen redhirted his freshman year and I would suspect he would stay for all 5 years. This leaves Kiel with 1 year of starting (unless an underclassman overtakes him...or Golsen gets hurt).
The math does not work for Keil. He will now get a decent "chance" to start for 3 years somewhere else...nobody is assured of starting. It is important that Gunner picks the right school to transfer to.
I wish him luck and hope that we land a good QB recruit for the 2014 class, so we do not have a similar problem as we did in the 2009 class, where we did not have a QB.
