Good morning! It's June 1, so we're officially in the month in which Baby Tex is supposed to grace us with his presence (and perhaps change things here at Her Loyal Sons).

Last week, as news broke of Everett Golson's departure from South Bend, we focused on the why. Today, as Monday turns to Tuesday and we wait for summer and our pastures to change, focus is turning to the where. So tell us, Dr. Kübler-Ross, where will he land? Smart money is, for now, on Florida State.

Big Man on Campus

Good morning! This tweet perfectly encapsulates what transpired in the last 18 hours of Notre Dame football: Golson's announcement was covered in almost every conceivable angle, so let's dive into that first: Her Loyal Sons: Everett Golson transferring from Notre Dame Her Loyal Sons: F***ng Roundup: Can we just have a quiet f***ing offseason for once?
