Notre Dame Fighting Irish Depth Chart VS Stanford Cardinal

New, 9 comments

There’s some OR shifting going on here as Notre Dame releases this week’s depth chart.

The depth chart changed quite a bit for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish last week — a few days after its release of course. We saw Ian Book get his first start at quarterback against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, but will that continue against the Stanford Cardinal.

The offensive depth chart looks almost the exact same as it did last week at this time — except there are a few more “OR’s” thrown in the mix. Brian Kelly is still having fun with this quarterback thing, so instead of listing Ian Book as the starter over Brandon Wimbush, there is an “OR” to separate them. Trevor Ruhland played in place of Tommy Kraemer at right guard last week, and he did so well that he is now listed as an “OR” as well. (Kraemer could still be a bit hobbled with a bad ankle).

There is no more “OR” with Micah Dew-Treadway and Kurt Hinish as the sophomore Hinish has cemented his role in the rotation. The “OR” is back on with Jonathan Jones and Bo Bauer after both played pretty well in limited action last week. Shayne Simon is no officially the backup at the ROVER since Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is out for the year with an injury. Notre Dame doesn’t list the NICKEL as a position on the depth chart, but we do. Last week it was Nick Coleman and then Houston Griffith — and then Griffith started at the NICKEL and the game. This week I flip-flopped them.

No change here (although I wouldn’t be surprised to see Dexter Williams on kick return this week — just a hunch).
