The Depth Chart For Syracuse. Is Brian Kelly Trolling Notre Dame Fans?

Changes WILL be made. Well... somewhere.

I could have swore that Brian Kelly said that changes would be made in regards to the depth chart moving forward. Hell, he even mouthed off that Brandon Wimbush might even get a chance to play quarterback over one of the nation’s best quarterbacks in DeShone Kizer.

We were told there would be punch and pie. I see no pie, and that is a glass of tap water sir.

At first glance, the depth chart is somewhat infuriating. I ABSOLUTELY believe that changes need to be made in regards to Notre Dame’s personnel choices. However... I guess it is only Tuesday afternoon, and can those major changes even be made by now?

Maybe and maybe not. I, for example, think that Andrew Trumbetti could and should be replaced right now. Notre Dame is much better off with either Jay or Daelin Hayes.

Perhaps Tristan Hoge should start over McGovern? Maybe Dexter Williams should be the starting running back? I know... maybe the entire secondary should be replaced by their backup’s backup?

Of course, what the real probability is, Brian Kelly is trying to motivate his starters. Right or wrong, he's trying. Still though, maybe the released depth chart should have been berserker, instead of business as usual if he wanted to achieve that goal�.
