Notre Dame Fighting Irish VS Georgia Bulldogs: Depth Chart

Keeping you in tune with any movements on the depth chart leading up to Georgia.

NCAA Football: Temple at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The depth chart for this Saturday’s showdown with the Georgia Bulldogs has been released by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and it is virtually unchanged from a week ago. What a stable program, am I right?

Nic Weishar OR CJ Sanders OR Tony Jones Jr. Montgomery VanGorder
OR Brock Wright
OR Cole Kmet

It seems that the surprise of starting two transfers at Wide Receiver alongside Equanimeous St. Brown is an experiment that seemed to have worked last Saturday. Though the focus of the game was on the the offensive line and ground game, Brandon Wimbush still managed to find eight different targets through the air.

Irish linebackers will have their hands full with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel in town. The Bulldogs will be starting true freshman Jake Fromm, which means they may look to rely heavily on the ground game.

The lack of change from game one to game two for the defense is a good thing. Nothing went catastrophically wrong, as the Notre Dame defense held Temple in check and Mike Elko and company showed an ability to adjust at half time (I didn’t know you were allowed to do that). They’ll have a new challenge ahead of them this week.

Despite having been listed as the number one for kick offs for the Temple game, freshman Jonathan Doerer did not see any action. Justin Yoon handled all kick off and placekicking duties, and was shaky in the latter. For now, the faith remains in Justin Yoon that he’ll shake whatever is causing his inconsistency and deliver when called upon.

No movement in the depth chart is a good thing. Stability is good. The Irish handled their business in the opener against Temple without much drama, and the lack of any change illustrates that. It also means that everyone is healthy, and that’s something Notre Dame fans aren’t used to. I will now go promptly knock on wood.
