Since I had a few minutes this morning, I decided to take a look at the Eligibility chart for 2009 and see if any adjustments were needed. Sure enough, there were. Here are a few notes pertaining to the eligibility chart, followed by the chart itself.
- There is no need to be hasty and move Aldridge into the fullback slot right now. He may very well play more meaningful downs as a FB, but until we get past spring practice and the spring game- he remains a running back. I will have a post that goes a little more in depth with this possible positional change soon.
- The same rules apply to Trevor Robinson as a tackle. He will have to win the left tackle spot, before I move him as well.
- Since the Irish are moving away from the 3-4 terminology and settling in on a 4-3 verbal base, I have changed the position titles a bit. There are nose guards and defensive tackles.
- There are no more hybrid slots, as you are either have your hand up or your hand down 99% of the time. Also, I have not split up the linebackers into Sam, Mike, and Will. I may do this in the future, but not yet.
