Will this ever happen?
No, not in my lifetime at least.
My luck w/the Irish 18-6...GO IRISH!!!
Not sure but I would love to see them in the ACC. Only because I am selfish and live in NC so would be able to see them more than the 3 games I travel for each year.
The way the landscape of college football is heading, I don't think they will have much of choice. You can already see certain rivalries are already fading with the conference schedules and all the switching going on. Won't be long before our biggest rivalries drop us because of scheduling conflicts. It will probably be the Big 10 or the ACC for the Irish if push comes to shove. My
This is the paradigm I was leaning toward!
I think the only way they join a conference is if their in routes to the
BCS games are closed. As long as they still have a seat at the
table, don't expect any conference affiliation from the Irish.
I think if they decide to join a conference, rather than jump into one, they should gather a bunch of top schools and start a new conference with more revenue indepndence than equal sharing of Bowl revenue. They could have strict academic standards and if they hold the league to 10 teams or fewer, they can still maintain some rivalries and intersectional trips.
Will ND join a conference?
