Sandri and Allen also started sev- eral times between them as sopho- mores for the 1988 national champs, and provided quality depth in future years. 5. 1974: Ernie Hughes, Steve McDaniels, Dave Vinson, Harry Woebkenberg and Mike Carney A three-year starter at right guard, Hughes was a second-team Associ- ated Press and United Press Inter- national All-American for the 1977 national champs, while the 6-7, 276-pound McDaniels — a Goliath in his time — joined him on the right side. Vinson earned Academic All-Amer- ica notice as a part-time starter at left guard. Woebkenberg, a tackle, and Carney, a guard, started on the left side as juniors in 1976 before leav- ing Notre Dame for different reasons prior to their senior years. 4. 2014: Quenton Nelson, Sam Mustipher, Alex Bars and Jimmy Byrne In prior years, Byrne might have had a chance to start, but with the nine players Notre Dame signed in the 2013 and 2014 classes, it was a challenge to break into the two deep. Nelson, a unanimous All-American guard, joined Barry Sanders this year as the lone first-team All-Pro picks the past 30 years in each of their first three NFL seasons. Like Nelson, Mustipher and Bars were named captains, and were three- year starters and vital figure during Notre Dame's 22-4 run in 2017-18, highlighted by a College Football Playoff bid in 2018. 3. 1988: Mirko Jurkovic, Justin Hall, Gene McGuire and Lindsay Knapp Four offensive linemen were re- cruited in 1988 — and each became two-year starters on a top-10 pro- gram. That is an outstanding hit rate! Jurkovic, who played on defense for the 1988 national champs, was an All-American right guard as a senior, and Hall was on the verge of starting as a freshman right tackle before get- ting injured. Sadly, both died far too young in recent years. McGuire played guard, center and tackle during his career, and Knapp was a two-year starter at left tackle. 2. 1971: Gerry DiNardo, Steve Sylvester, Steve Neece, Steve Quehl and Ed Bauer DiNardo was a three-year starter and consensus All-American right guard, while right tackle Sylves- ter won three Super Bowls with the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, plus a 1973 national title ring. Left tackle Neece also started every game in 1973-74 when Notre Dame was 21-2. Quehl began his career at tight end, played tackle and started at center in 1975 — a unit that left tackle Bauer, who also enrolled as a tight end, co- captained. 1. 1963: Tom Regner, Paul Seiler, George Goeddeke and Dick Swatland Interim coach Hugh Devore re- cruited them and Ara Parseghian and Co., developed them into national champs as 1966 seniors. Seiler was the 12th pick of the 1967 NFL Draft and Regner — who started on defense as a sophomore in 1964-65 and played both ways in 1965 — was selected 23rd. Goeddeke, a center, was a second- team UPI and third-team AP All- American who played six years in the NFL. Swatland was a two-year starting guard who made the Time All-America team and also played in the NFL. This group checked every box: mul- tiple first-round picks, won a national title and provided quality depth. ✦ M A R K E T P L A C E MEMORABILIA Vintage Notre Dame Memorabilia Augie's Locker Room ND Stadium Items, Jerseys, Helmets, Autographs and One-of-a-Kind Rockne Items.
