They don’t have to worry about money either as their TV contract pays 25 millio a year and is set to increase soon. FSU will make 13 million next year. Notre Dame is also situated near these “ideal locations” and won’t have to fly cross country like FSU.
Maybe not, until they no longer have access and then they most certainly will be in the ACC.
If they win the championship it might actually make the others take their seat from the table.
You also said their current membership deal would not happen and it did.
Aren’t you a Pac 12 dude? What is your deal with the ACC? Why do you care?
What did I say about their current membership deal? Notre Dame basically raped the acc, all they gave in exchange was to schedule some acc teams. As for what I care, I am a CFB fan, with national interests. What do you mean about others taking their seat from the table?
The conferences allow Swarbrick to sit there as a single AD while everyone else is represented by their conferences. If the conferences cut them out they would have to join.
The reason they havent is because Notre Dame would immediately join the ACC. Them winning though might change Delaney’s mind and he seems to somehow run everything.
The Notre Dame ACC agreement is hardly a raping. ACC gets to play them without paying them anything. Every ACC school will get a million dollar raise and Notre Dame gets nothing but a schedule. They said it themselves that this deal is financially neutral for them.
How is it not a win?
Notre Dame’s football team will remain independent until it is more than obvious that they must be in a conference to survive. I personally do not see that time ever happening. They will play 5 ACC games, and can still play USC, OU, Navy, Mich. St., etc… They can maintain a SOS near the top while maintaining independence. If they are successful like this year… there is no way they will be excluded from any type of championship process. ND is ND, and that’s how that works.
