\ If Jordan Steffy can’t play, it will be who the heck is backing up Chris Turner.\


\ Well, the short answer to that is Jamarr Robinson, a freshman who has rocketed from No. 6 on the depth chart in the spring to potentially No. 2 thanks to a couple transfers (Jeremy Ricker and Bobby Sheahin), a university decision related to academic integrity (Josh Portis) and now possibly a concussion to Steffy.\

\ “I’m a little more concerned about who the next guy,” Friedgen said. “If Jordan can’t go, I’ve really got two quarterbacks and that’s it, so I have to be prepared for the worst.”\

\ The worst could mean Keon Lattimore or Lance Ball taking snaps out of the single wing. (And I find this mildly amusing not because it would be curious to see a major college team function out of that formation, but rather because if any team this fall that should be stirring the echoes of past greatness at Notre Dame, it’s, well, 0-5 Notre Dame).\

\ Of course, Robinson isn’t an ideal solution himself. He is technically a true freshman, but he greyshirted last year so he has an extra year of physical maturation to his credit. He is not anywhere near ready just yet, but as Ralph said, “He might have to be.”\
