Draft Scout Tommy Rees News
10/22/12 - So, this is what a trap game looks like. Starting quarterback Everett Golson out from last week's concussion in an emotional win over Stanford. Tommy Rees running a much-less inspired offense for the Notre Dame football team. A showdown against Oklahoma looming. And an Irish defense that had its moments of confusion. It all added up to a 17-14 escape by the Irish from BYU (4-4) on Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium. The Irish (7-0) took a giant step toward securing a BCS bowl with the victory. Trips to Oklahoma next Saturday and USC on Nov. 24 are the primary obstacles facing Notre Dame the rest of the way. Rees passed himself out of the doldrums as the third quarter faded into the fourth with BYU leading, 14-10. After completing 6-of-7 passes in the first quarter, he went the next seven without a completion. Then Rees hit TJ Jones with a 31-yarder that put the Irish in BYU territory. Running back Theo Riddick broke free for 19 yards to the Cougar five-yard-line and George Atkinson III ran wide for a two-yard touchdown for the winning touchdown. - The Sports Xchange
10/06/12 - Tommy Rees will start at quarterback for No. 9 Notre Dame against Miami on Saturday night after Everett Golson was benched for a violation of team rules. Golson was in uniform and still eligible to play. Notre Dame is 12-4 with Rees as its starting quarterback. But the junior lost his job to Golson after being arrested in May for a skirmish with police following an off-campus party. He was suspended for the season opener. Rees has come off the bench to lead the Irish (4-0) to two victories this year. Golson has a pass efficiency rating of 121.06, placing him 98th in the nation. - AP Sports
09/22/12 - The Notre Dame defense intercepted five passes and held Michigan out of the end zone in a 13-6 slugfest Saturday. Notre Dame entered the locker room with a 10-0 lead, after a first half marred by penalties and ill-advised passes by both teams, and the teams managed three field goals in the second half. Michigan threw five interceptions in the first half, four by Robinson and one by running back Vincent Smith, on five consecutive pass attempts. The last time Notre Dame intercepted five passes in a game was in 1988 against Purdue. Notre Dame sophomore Everett Golson threw two interceptions. Both teams combined for seven penalties. Late in the second quarter, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly pulled Golson and inserted junior Tommy Rees after Golson had completed just 3 of 8 passes for 30 yards. Rees delivered immediate results, driving the team 48 yards, completing 3 of 4 passes, before scoring on a 2-yard run from the shotgun to put the Irish up 10-0. - The Sports Xchange
09/08/12 - Notre Dame's win over Purdue on Saturday left more questions than answers. Quarterback Tommy Rees relieved Everett Golson on Notre Dame's final offensive drive, and he rallied the team for the winning score. Rees led a 55-yard, 12-play march, setting up on a 27-yard Kyle Brindza field goal that allowed the Irish (2-0) to pull out a 20-17 victory over the Boilermakers (1-1). Rees completed a couple critical passes -- a 10-yarder to John Goodman on third-and-6 from midfield and a 21-yarder to Robby Toma to put the Irish in range for the winner. All from a guy who was suspended for the first game of the season and didn't take a lot of meaningful snaps in preseason camp. "That's what I knew about him and his makeup, his moxie, his mental toughness," Irish coach Brian Kelly said of Rees, last year's starter. "Does he have all of the elite skills? No. But he's a gamer. He'll do anything. Those guys in that locker room will go to the wall for him. They'll do anything because he's a great teammate. "He's working the whole game, talking to Everett about different looks, different coverages. He's the consummate teammate. That's why those guys in the locker room are pretty happy." - The Sports Xchange
09/07/12 - QB Tommy Rees, who started all but one game for the Irish last year, returns from a one-game suspension this week, but won't start against Purdue. Coach Tom Kelly gave the nod to Everett Golson, who engineered a 50-10 victory over Navy. - The Sports Xchange
