Marchi could start at QB for Temple against Notre Dame

Marchi (Temple athletics)
There's no depth chart for Temple football.
First-year head coach Geoff Collins doesn't believe in them, and instead uses "above the line" and "below the line." The former means that players are ready and could see game action, according to a story from Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Four quarterbacks are listed as "above the line," and one is former St. Paul star Logan Marchi, a redshirt sophomore. Marchi is a frontrunner for the starting nod on Saturday in the season opener at Notre Dame. Junior Frank Nutile is also a frontrunner, and Collins hasn't named a starter.
Wright (Temple athletics)
Marchi threw just six passes last season -- standout senior Philip Walker was the man -- but has been in competition for the main job this year. Marchi is also listed as "above the line" for the holder position on special teams, along with redshirt freshman Anthony Russo.
Also making an appearance "above the line" is sophomore Isaiah Wright, who was born in Waterbury and played at Holy Cross High School before moving on to Kingswood-Oxford in West Hartford. Wright is listed at both wide receiver and kick returner.
Wright played in all 12 games and rushed 42 times for 250 yards and a touchdown. He caught eight passes for 74 yards, and he returned two kicks for 17 yards.
