I love it
i try to put the really clueless people on ignore and alas occasionally click show post.... probably should have skipped that step here but alas.... i'll waste a little time....
i never said ND was irrelevant. apparently you have reading comprehension issues.
i wanted the big 12 to get notre dame and linked it as plausible a year ago or more.
ND was clearly the biggest re-alignment get out there. As BP noted however there was likely a caveat and that caveat was nasty indeed.
I am a Texas Tech fan and I'd have been supremely pissed if the Big 12 had given ND a free bowl tie-in for 5 games a season.
If the ACC can take this new ND get and turn it into tv money they win... if not they lose. It really is that simple. We saw with the Big East just having ND loosely attached isn't going to bring revenue.
As to the separate issue of ND football they just arent very good right now. In a real football conference they'd be a 2nd or 3rd tier team.
ND and UT are VERY similar. Both arrogant well beyond results on the field indicate they should be.
