They do travel well (know a few folks going myself), but Wisc. and Nebraska are just so mediocre that there just isn't the drive to get to Indianapolis. I think they're all holding out for the Rose Bowl.

I don't really want to second guess Jack swarbrick and im sure he probably looked into the possibility but why didn't we try to join the B1G the same way we did the ACC? I know they only want us as a full member but i can't imagine that the way delaney is expanding (purely for monetary gain) he would turn down ND in all sports but football with 5 B1G games yearly. The ratings this year on nbc and abc drive this point home. ND/USC was the most watched college football game is 6 years and it's due entirely to the unique national draw of ND.

Just don't want the ACC to implode and we get stuck joining the B1G fully or playing sun belt teams to fill out future schedules.

The BIG10 wants in 100% on all sports. They don't like our NBC contract and would stick us as a regional team like UM or MSU. The reality is I would rather join the BIG12 than stay with the BIG10. Seems like we don't have a much of a choice if all these teams to the BIG10 are true.

A lot of teams play FBS cupcakes week one, right?

Week two, they actually played a weaker foe in The Savannah State Tigers. Who ultimately would finish their season 1-10, 0-8 and dead last in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play. But give them credit for scheduling Edward Waters, beating them by a score of 42-35. By the way, if you go to Savannah State's ESPN page, Edwards Waters doesn't even have a page. I had to google it to find out that they're a historically black college in Jacksonville, Florida with a current enrollment of 839 (per their website).

Add in the 3-8 South Florida Bulls of Big Least Fame and you get three out of conference games with a combined record of 9-24 in OVC, MEAC and BE play (tell me those conference acronyms don't look odd and foreign to you).

So for the ACC stepping up it's collective game to keep Florida State in conference: That's ****ing bull****. Florida State needs to blame themselves for their ****** S.O.S. They wanted to write checks to a get them an undefeated National Championship run and got what they deserved.
Great post

Washington Nationals Washington Redskins Washington Capitals Notre Dame




To put it mildly, the ACC loses absolutely nothing in UVA. The idea that UVA and Maryland carry a "media market" is crazy... UVA has ZERO fans and is no good any sport but lacrosse (and occasionally baseball and soccer). Maryland has very few fans as well and is average at basketball/horrendous at football.

GT? I mean... is that something? I don't know but I don't think so. All of these teams are no more relevant than Illinois or Indiana and won't bring big viewership with them... is this just to justify BTN up and down the east coast? Or is it to force Notre Dame's hand?

Anyways... bottom line is as long as FSU and Virginia Tech stay in the ACC it's no biggy. Louisville and Cinci are arguably upgrades over Maryland and UVA... with GT being the only loss that might "hurt"... Tech is what carries the Virginia/DC market.

Where it is bad for ND, is if it is the first step on the path to four 16 team Superconferences. If that happens, then ND will almost certainly be forced to join one of those conferences. THAT, in my mind, is the worst case scenario for all of this expansion.
