The piece of paper they sent us pretends that Kyle isn’t hurt

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 6-1, ranked #11 in the polls, and just beat down the USC Trojans by their second biggest point differential in the series for the past 20 years. It all happened under the pulsating lights of Notre Dame Stadium — and the Irish are getting ready to do it again against the North Carolina Tar Heels in another prime time matchup.

On Monday, Notre Dame released their depth chart for the week. As always... this is not accurate, but it IS what they give us. We’ll talk about it...

Notre Dame was very happy with the way their starting offensive line played against USC, and they’re lined up to do it again. Zeke Correll is coming off of concussion protocol, and likely won’t be used unless there is an injury to Andrew Kristofic. Pat Coogan makes his first appearance on the depth chart this year behind Jarrett Patterson at center. ARinning back Chris Tyree was a game time decision against USC and sat the entire game because of his turf toe. Tyree should be back on the field this week. The quarterbacks — the quarterbacks are the quarterbacks.

So... yeah. You can scratch Kyle Hamilton from the depth chart this week. The fat pad knee thing will sideline the star safety against North Carolina, and D.J. Brown will move up to be the starter. Isaiah Pryor will likely play some snaps at safety this week as well. Other than Hamilton (and the past injuries of others) the Notre Dame defense will trot out the usual suspects against the Heels. Due to the nature of North Carolina’s offense, we should expect a lot of nickel packages with some dime as well.

Lorenzo Styles returned kicks against USC with the absence of Chris Tyree. Regardless of what the depth chart shows, I expect Styles to be the return man again this week — even if Tyree is cleared to play.
