    Can anyone confirm - ND Cancels Army game?

    A friend of mine - big Notre Dame fan - says they are cancelling 2013 Army game - odd coincidence with a possible new conference alignment?

    I think maybe not with everything else going on...

    Just found confirmation - I agree - a big deal cancelling a Yankess Stadium game:

    Can't confirm the Army game, but Sweet Lou did say ND should join the Big 10 or whatever they will now call themselves.

    Football: Army-Irish tilt in 2013 off the books

    Get your tickets for the Army-Notre Dame football game on Nov. 20 at Yankee Stadium.
    It could be the last time the two teams play in New York for a while.
    A proposed 2013 game is off, athletic director Kevin Anderson said on Thursday.
    "Unfortunately, we would have liked to play Notre Dame in 2013," Anderson said. "But Notre Dame has found that it's not going to work for them."
    Anderson said Army is looking at Stanford as a possible replacement for the game. Stanford is scheduled to play in 2013 at West Point.
    "I would love to see if they would be interested in playing us at Yankee Stadium," Anderson said. "I think that would be a tremendous game for New York, Yankee Stadium and the Pac-10."
    However, there's a sleeper in the mix — Syracuse.
    "I think they had some scheduling issues where that might not work," Anderson said. "They would be another great opponent to bring to Yankee Stadium in 2013. I've talked to Daryl Gross and we would like to schedule some games." Gross is Syracuse's athletic director.
    Anderson has also talked with Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez about playing a game at Yankee Stadium.
    Anderson confirmed a Denver Post report that Colorado is interested in playing in the Bronx.

    Hmm - I still want to know more about this and there is just a couple of quiet entries in stories here and there.

    I believe if Notre Dame left the Big East - and little signs like this scheduling stuff could start to hint at that - then the Big East will start to feel some early pressure, putting us in a decent spot to come in and help them get to more football schools.

    Villanova and the rest wouldn't stop WVU, Pitt and USF from potentially leaving just because of basketball - something Tagliabue is probably telling the Big East commissioner and presidents.
