I guess this means we can't schedule them for nonconference?

ACC members maybe make it easier to schedule by doing this....


I would think they’d use this as leverage to make them join permanently

No chance ND joins permanently.

If ACC gives them the milk for free... there's no leverage.

I'm tired of ND's highfalutin attitude. Stop cherry pickin', join one conference for all sports, and stick with it.

Has to be some negotiation where if the ACC backed out of the 5 games promised there is a big penalty or something. So this year giving them extra games and a shot at the championship is cheaper than backing out of the 5

They are a ACC member in every sport except football and hockey. The ACC does not have hockey.

Wonder if ACC is actually doing 11 total games, to the Big Ten's and PAC's 10 games? Or are they saying 10 total games with one of them non-conf. Wouldn't surprise me if there was some confusion on this.

The the ACC and SEC are locked into doing one non-conf game, because of the historic cross-conf rivalries.

I believe Big XII is also looking to +1, which also would make sense with 9 conf games (full round-robin, as they normally do) and another one to get to 10.

Too bad that Iowa-Iowa St can't somehow be accomodated. It could be done, if Nebraska would agree to play their 10th game against a Big XII team (Kansas? K-State? etc.)


Makes sense that if Notre Dame is playing an ACC conf schedule, that they'd be eligible. That also sets up the ACC to allow this in the future, if ND decides to join full-time in football.

FYI:

There are 4 traditional SEC-ACC rivalries:

Florida-FSU
Georgia-Georgia Tech
South Carolina-Clemson
Kentucky-Louisville

The word hubris was invented to describe the ND football program.
