Boston College Football Depth Chart For Notre Dame Game

The return of Deuce Finch...

It's rivalry week for the Eagles, as Boston College has the chance to knock out the #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Can the Eagles pull off another miracle this weekend against their hated Catholic brothers?


  1. Chase Rettig - JR
  2. Josh Bordner - SO

Rettig is going to need to turn it around after five turnovers last weekend against a weak Wake Forest team. Notre Dame's defense is no joke, and he will need to be on his A game if he wants to succeed.


  1. David Dudeck - FR
  2. Rolandan Finch - JR

Andre Williams is out this week, apparently because of the abdominal injury from last weekend's game. However Deuce Finch has finally emerged from whatever purgatory Frank Spaziani sentenced him to after the Northwestern game. Dudeck is slotted as one, but if Spaz wants to win he needs to get Finch into the game. Dudeck is going to get killed against a physical team like the Irish.

Wide Receivers:

  1. Alex Amidon - JR
  2. Donte Elliott - SR
  1. Johnathan Coleman - JR
  2. Dan Crimmins - FR
  1. Spiffy Evans - SO OR Bobby Swigert - JR

Again the same as last week. I don't understand how Colin Larmond Jr. hasn't emerged back on the depth chart especially after Spaz announced that his three game suspension was over. I don't care what A Jersey Guy says, Larmond is a better player than most of these guys. Spaz says he wants to put the best team out there to win, but it's hard to believe with Larmond on the bench

Tight End:

  1. Chris Pantale- SR
  2. C.J. Parsons- SO or Mike Giacone - FR
Pantale had a nice touchdown catch on the wide receiver pass from Bobby Swigert last week. Didn't really see much out of the other two.

Offensive Line

Left Tackle:

  1. Emmett Cleary - SR
  2. Dan Lembke - R-FR

Left Guard:

  1. Bobby Vardaro - SO
  2. Harris Williams - SO
  1. Andy Gallik - SO
  2. Paul Gaughan - R-FR

Right Guard:

  1. Seth Betancourt - SO
  2. Bryan Davis - JR

Right Tackle:

  1. John Wetzel - SR
  2. Aaron Kramer - SO

Horrible news last week when Ian White went down with a lower leg injury. White was easily one of the best lineman on the team, and having him gone against a dominating defense like Notre Dame is a major blow. Seth Betancourt will get his chance to start.


  1. Mike Naples - JR
  2. Jarrett Darmstatter - SO OR Brian Miller - FR

Same as last week. No changes.

Defensive Ends:

  1. Kasim Edebali - SR or
  2. Brian Mihalik - SO
  1. Kieran Borcich - FR
  2. Mehdi Abdesmad - SO

Borcich had a solid game last week, definitely better than what we have seen for the first part of the season. No Malachi Moore listed this week, which makes Spaz's move to burn his redshirt even more surprising.

Left Tackle

  1. Connor Wujciak - SO
  2. Max Ricci - JR

Right Tackle

  1. Bryan Murray - SR
  2. Dominic Appiah- SO

Bryan Murray has played very well at DT, and has made a few good plays. Like Wujciak as well.


  1. Steele Divitto - JR
  2. Tim Joy - FR


  1. Nick Clancy - SR
  2. Sean Duggan- SO


  1. Steven Daniels - FR
  2. Josh Keyes - SO

Kevin Pierre-Louis is out again, battling yet another injury. Feel bad for the kid, he's a good player when he is healthy but he gets knocked around a lot. Steven Daniels, who has played admirably as a freshman will get the start. Like the play out of Tim Joy so far, he's a very physical linebacker who never gives up on a play. Hopefully Spaz cycles him in, he deserves the playing time.

Field Corner:

  1. Manuel Asprilla - SO
  2. Bryce Jones - FR

Back Corner:

  1. Sean Sylvia - SO
  2. Ameer Richardson - FR

Same as the previous three weeks. Not overly impressed with Notre Dame's passing game so they could step up this week. Then again, I haven't been overly impressed by BC's passing defense all season.

Strong Safety:

  1. Jim Noel - SR
  2. Spenser Rositano - SO

Free Safety:

  1. Justin Simmons - FR
  2. C.J. Jones - SO

Simmons gets the nod this week over Jones, and he deserves it. Simmons has been possibly the best in the secondary the past few weeks. He's made good plays and lays a good hit, which is what you want out of your safety.

Punt Returner:

  1. Spiffy Evans - FR
  2. Bryce Jones - FR

Kick Returner:

  1. Spiffy Evans - SO
  2. Bryce Jones- FR


  1. Nate Freese - JR
  2. Alex Howell - R-FR


  1. Gerald Levano - SR
  2. Alex Howell - R-FR


  1. Sean Flaherty - SR
  2. Dave Shinskie - SR


  1. Gerald Levano - SR
  2. Josh Bordner - SO
