Senior Day coming up
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish released their early season depth chart on Monday for this week’s game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Somehow we have made it to senior day — so where in the hell has the season went? It’s pretty incredible that there are only two games left, but even more incredible is the difference in the depth chart from Florida State week to now.
At least there were basically no changes this week.
One of the more remarkable things about Notre Dame’s depth chart has been the rise of Logan Diggs at running back. Injuries and the “OR” designation aside, Diggs has clearly been the second best back on the team this year — especially during the second half of the season.
The defensive depth chart is still nutty. Ever since the loss of Kyle Hamilton at safety the rotation on the back end has been steady. Xavier Watts, for example, is listed as a backup Rover and yet we all know his main duties have been as the field safety when he’s on the field. Ramon Henderson is another example of “listed elsewhere but also plays safety” on the chart. So… maybe we get a more accurate update later this week. And maybe not.
Another week of no changes as far as the specialists go… and that’s perfectly fine.
