What About Notre Dame?

With the Irish playing five games a year against ACC opponents, does it have any impact on the USC-Notre Dame series?
“We’re still going to be in California every year,” Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick told the Associated Press.

    What a fuckwad question to ask. The only team trying to get out of their annual commitment to play USC is FUCLA…

    Now get back to finding out about secret surgeries!

    My “inside” sources (i.e. ESPN.com) say ND will continue to play Navy USC & SU but will probably rotate Purdue MI St & MI. What’s really interesting is that NBC pays ND $15 mil & ACC schools get $18 mil. All other schools in power conf’s get even more. Won’t be long before ND can’t afford to be independent. And I think current round of realignment is done. ACC raised its exit fee to over $50 mil! P12 said no to Oklahoma & B10 didn’t counter for MO so niether want to expand any more. B12 appears stable now. And there are a couple of likely lower tier targets for them (eg Boise, BYU, L’ville). If ND decides to make more $ by joining ACC in FB ACC would add Rut or possibly CT & stop at 16. But I don’t see any of the others expanding in near term.

    ND should have joined the Big 10 before Nebraska. However, I do think the ACC deal is good for both. Play the 5 ACC games, SC, Stanford, Navy, and one or 2 Big Ten games depending how many of the ACC teams are cupcakes.
