    What about renaming the conference the Notre Dame 10? (Not serious)


    I think Notre will stay independent and if they ever join a conference it will be the ACC imo.

    • I think they'll try to keep indepence as long as possible but I don't buy the ACC thing. I just don't see what benefit they have joining the ACC when they already have natural rivalries and much more money built into the Big Ten.

      Unless the ACC bends over backwards for them and the Big Ten won't cut them a deal it just doesn't make much sense.

        Huh? How does the ACC make any sense? lol. Big Ten or whatever becomes of the Big East.

          It's been all over the place that they prefer the ACC to the B1G if they were to be forced into a conference.

            The only reason for ND To go to the ACC over the B1G is if they wanted to have a good chance to finish in the top half of the conference most years.

            • I know ESPN is reporting it, but everyone knows they have interests in the Big Ten having less financial success. Which is why, even in the day of irresponsible journalism, you'll never see them report any rumors of Texas or Notre Dame to the Big Ten while they're more than willing to say on air any other random rumor they hear.

                Exactly. ESPN is interfering with the conferences to the point that they are blatantly trying to steer schools in a certain direction by trying to get the masses excited about something.

                  The ACC makes a lot of sense for ND. Especially with Pitt, Cuse, Maryland, and BC now there. The ACC wouldn't screw with their TV deals, and ND would be in a conference with other private academic schools.

                  I think the ACC will be after ND and either West Virginia or Cincinnati. They're a lot closer to finishing their super conference than any of the others.

                  As for BC to the B1G... It used to make sense, but not so much with Pitt and Syracuse back in the mix. I'm surprised that I haven't heard more about UConn. That's a huge chip. They're in the heart of the Northeast media and have a much better sports program than Rutgers or Syracuse.

                        Just like every early article about Texas A&M leaving for SEC was bad for both the SEC and TAMU? Imagine that.

                          if TCU stays with the MWC then I would give them the Big East Bowl Bid.

                            Agree. It's already better than the Big East.

                            • I read a rumor that WVU, Louisville, Cincy go to Big 12. If Mizzou goes to the SEC then the Big 12 is going to take USF as the replacement. I don't know how true it is but if that's the case then Big East football is officially dead.
