Not even four months after transferring to 10th-ranked Florida State, Everett Golson has been declared the starting quarterback.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher committed to Golson on Monday. Golson, a graduate transfer from Notre Dame, beat out junior Sean Maguire.

"He came in, related to our players well and showed what kind of player he was," Fisher said of Golson. "He has a good grasp of things."

Golson started 23 games for the Fighting Irish in 2012 and '14. Besides throwing for 5,850 yards and 41 touchdowns at Notre Dame, he ran for 14 touchdowns and averaged 23.2 rushing yards per game.

Iowa gender suit gains traction

Iowa athletics administrators ordered that a female be hired over male candidates for an assistant track coaching job regardless of qualifications, an internal e-mail from the head coach alleges.

Attorneys for a male coach who says he was illegally passed over portrayed the e-mail as a smoking gun that proves his gender discrimination allegations.

"It's in writing. The administration said, 'We want a female in that position,'" said Brooke Timmer, an attorney for Mike Scott, now an assistant at Missouri State.

Indiana punishes two players

Indiana coach Tom Crean announced that sophomore Emmitt Holt had been kicked off the team and prized recruit Thomas Bryant will face internal discipline after being cited for illegal possession of an alcoholic beverage.

For Holt, it was a second strike. In November, he ran into teammate Devin Davis with his car, leaving Davis with a severe brain injury. Holt was not cited by police because police said Davis jumped in front of the car and that both players had been drinking.
