    Conference Realignment: Addressing the Issue of Notre Dame | Atlantic Coast Convos

    Just an opinion piece but I hadn't heard this before:
    "Now before folks get all up in arms, let’s remember this is all a hypothetical, for the time being. There are some murmurs, however, that discussions are happening. There’s just no consensus on what, exactly, is being talked about and who these talks might be with. Last week, Orangebloods’ Chip Brown claimed the Irish were headed there for Olympic sports, with a scheduling deal for football. Unsurprisingly, that ended up being unsubstantiated rumor-mongering. This week, there’s been chatter on some boards about a secret meeting between ND and the ACC, also concerning Louisville. I was dismissive at first, but then it started heading over to Twitter, with additional details attached. If it’s true, the ACC’s TV deal would multiply by 1.5 times its current value should they add ND and the ‘Ville. That means $24 million per school in a 16-team league — BUT there’s a catch. Notre Dame would make $36 million in this arrangement (by far the most it could garner anywhere), and in return, each school would get knocked down to around $23.2 million each. Of course, I’m alright with concessions, but is that too much? Wake Forest fans probably say no, but Florida State fans likely feel differently given their own status as a supposedly “elite” viewing property."

    Ah, it feels good to be back. In unrelated news, my psych has just diagnosed me with Stockholm Syndrome, whatever the crap that means.

    I can't see how the addition of FSU and Clemson plus a conference title game wouldn't be at least revenue neutral for the conference.

    Some of these articles are just completely ********. They argue that FSU and CU to the Big 12 would be a conflict of interests to ESPN? Well, apparently, they forgot that when Nebraska went to the Big 10, that the Big 12 had a contract with ESPN as well. same with Colorado, Mizzou, and TAMU.

    Except for the people throwing the money at them.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
