Now that the 2012 season is over, Notre Dame will experience a roster change on both sides of the ball. Some have used up all of their eligibility, while others have decided that they have done enough to be able to take their talents to the NFL.
However players decide to leave South Bend, there are guys who are going to be missed once the 2013 season begins to kick off.
These players could have been leaders and helped keep the team in check when times got tough. Or they just could have been a wonderful talent on the field that is going to be difficult to replace. Regardless of how guys made their impact felt on the team, the Irish are losing a handful of guys from last year’s squad, and everybody will be missed at one point or another.
Here are some of the guys who will be missed the most next season by Notre Dame.
