Hendrix, Golson haven't disappointed
The four-way quarterback controversy has become a two-man race, and a dead-heat at that, but that doesn't mean Notre Dame offensive coordinator/quarterbacks' coach Charley Molnar is disappointed in what he has seen from sophomore Andrew Hendrix or freshman Everett Golson.
"We have two young guys that will be battling over the next several years to be the quarterback of the future," Molnar said. "Both of those guys are so promising that we really felt it was important give them work early during camp, but also we had to be smart and not do anything to hurt our development for 2011. We gave them the right amount of work, I think it was the right measure, and we're backing off a little bit on them right now. The battle between who is Nos. 3 and 4 right now is ongoing, and that will go on every single day from now until the bowl game."
Molnar said he envisions both players getting game experience this season.
"I see both of those guys getting on the field for Notre Dame," Molnar said. "They are both talented young men. Will they have to go in to the football game to help us win the game at that point? Hopefully, that won't be the case. Hopefully we can get them in the game and get them some experience. Both of them have distinct skill sets that really set them apart from a lot of other quarterbacks, not only in our program, but anywhere. They both have tremendously strong arms, they're both fast decision makers, and can really make plays with their feet. They're both really talented football players and they're a lot better now than they were during spring football, and I anticipate them being a lot better at the end of the year than they are today."
