The rest of the world won't know the QB answer until the Irish take its first offensive snap on Saturday in the opener against Georgia Tech at Notre Dame Stadium.
Junior Evan Sharpley, sophomore Demetrius Jones and freshman Jimmy Clausen are competing for the job.
Irish head coach Charlie Weis has known for sure for 2-3 weeks.
Now, his quarterbacks should know officially. Weis was expected to inform the QBs of who the starter is following Tuesday night's media player interviews.
Weis has said for the last week that the players would have to be "brain dead" not to know, based on what has happened at practice.
Evan Sharpley felt the same way.
"Obviously, we'd be brain dead not to know," Sharpley explained. "You could tell based on how things were going."
"We started practicing for Georgia Tech and that's when it kind of started. You could tell the pecking order."
Sharpley did admit that finding out for sure would be nice, however.
Jones also said he couldn't wait to hear the official word. But he did put the decision in perspective.
"We've been waiting for this answer to come since April," Jones said.
"After 30-40 days of competing---we are not oblivious to what's going on out on the field, knowing the competition is close. But after a certain amount of time, it really doesn't matter anymore."
Both quarterbacks said if they are not named the quarterback, they will not be bitter and will be happy for whoever won the job.
