UND moving sports to ACC
[Image: 16x9]


Athletic director Jack Swarbrick huddled over and over with his staff and tried to play out how the Irish would fill out their 12-game schedule in the years and decades to come, a Notre Dame source said.

Football scheduling issues were Jack Swarbrick's push for the Irish to join the ACC . (AP) That, more than any other factor, led to Wednesday's announcement that Notre Dame would join the ACC in all sports except football, according to the source. The agreement stipulates Notre Dame plays five football games per year against ACC opponents, but not compete for the league title and play eight games, as a full member would. That provides the Irish with the firm scheduling base it coveted while maintaining the freedom to maintain a national schedule.

As for the ACC, the compromise allows its football programs access to a major brand that sells tickets and delivers TV ratings. It will also allow ACC commissioner John Swofford to seek additional compensation from the league's current long-term deal with ESPN, according to an ACC source. That deal has been criticized in league circles for not delivering enough revenue.

The football impact on Notre Dame to the ACC

AD Jack Swarbrick said yesterday that they still intend to play USC and Stanford every year, so that they have at least one game in California. They also will continue to play Navy every year.

Rivalries like the ones with Big Ten schools Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue will likely get squeezed. Swarbrick said that those three may have to go into some kind of rotation.

Even the rivalry with ACC member Boston College will suffer. The ACC portion of the Irish schedule, which will likely begin in 2014, will rotate all 14 ACC teams in a three-year cycle. One ACC opponent will be played twice in that time, but the annual contest with Boston College will no longer be annual.

Purdue expects Notre Dame's ACC move
to have little effect on football series

[Image: Purdue+tackling+vs+ND.bmp]

I wouldn’t expect (Wednesday’s) announcement to affect us,” athletic director Morgan Burke said in a statement released by the university. “We have a longtime relationship with Notre Dame involving many of our programs, and we expect it to continue.”

The schools have an agreement to play annually through 2021, but only the 2013 and 2014 games have signed contracts.

Purdue and Notre Dame have played every season since 1946.

ND moves to ACC and beats a top 10 team the first game, coincidence?

History Lesson:
UND Football vs. ACC Football

[Image: 295157_425140954199308_1189853074_n.jpg]

Let’s look back at Notre Dame’s football history against current and future ACC teams.
•Boston College: 12-9
•Clemson: 1-1
•Duke: 3-1
•Florida State: 2-5
•Georgia Tech: 27-6-1
•Maryland: 2-0
•Miami: 16-7-1
•North Carolina: 16-2
•North Carolina State: 0-1
•Pittsburgh: 46-20-1
•Syracuse: 3-3
•Virginia: 1-0
•Wake Forest: 1-0

In total, the Irish have compiled a 130-55-3 record (.699 winning percentage) in 188 games against this group of teams.

Virginia Tech, one of the conference’s perennial football powerhouses, is the only ACC squad that Notre Dame has never met on the football field. It will be an exciting day, when the Fighting Irish and Hokies finally play – whether in Blacksburg, Va. or right here at Notre Dame.

Problem Solved:
Recommending Notre Dame Football's ACC Schedule Rotation

[Image: 314248_425777944126582_704994272_n.jpg]

Notre Dame's going to start playing five ACC football games a year. Great! But how do you divide 14 opponents by five games? Here's a theoretical look at the future of Irish scheduling.

For the ACC as a whole, I can't imagine teams being asked to play nine conference games plus Notre Dame (especially with several of them maintaining tough out-of-conference rivalries) once the Irish come aboard as a ... whatever they are now. More likely: regular games against the Irish count as out-of-division conference games, both for scheduling and for the standings. There, that was easy.

Notre Dame To ACC:
Changes To The ACC Men's Basketball Tournament Format


With Pittsburgh and Syracuse set to join the conference next season, the ACC was already anticipating a move to a five-day format for the ACC men's basketball tournament. Though Notre Dame makes it 15 programs, an odd number, don't expect the new format of the conference tournament to change much.

Commissioner John Swofford thinks that this new format will remain largely the same after Notre Dame joins, with three games being played on Wednesday and the top-four seeds continuing to receive early-round byes. The dreaded double-bye? Oh yes, the double-bye.

RE: ND moving sports to ACC
Notre Dame wants to maintain Big East Conference rivalries
[Image: 600]
[Image: 474961.jpg]

Notre Dame is expecting to play in the Big East the next two seasons, but whenever the Fighting Irish do join the ACC, coach Mike Brey is ready to completely change his nonconference schedule.

Brey wants to play the Big East's Catholic-based institutions, especially long-standing rivals Marquette and DePaul, in nonconference home-and-home series. Brey said he would like to add Villanova, St. John's and possibly Georgetown into the rotation of schools the Irish want to play. Brey said he wants to play at least two to three of those five schools every season.

"We're not in Philadelphia anymore so we definitely want Villanova, we want to go to New York with St. John's and keep DePaul and Marquette," Brey said. "We will be in the D.C. area with Maryland, but we'd still like to play Georgetown. Villanova, DePaul, Marquette, St. John's and possibly Georgetown are definitely the five I'd like to do."

RE: ND moving sports to ACC
The Irish also will keep playing Southern California and Stanford,
to keep a presence on the West Coast.

We're going to keep some traditional rivals and we're going to get around the country. We're still going to be in California every year

USC/Stanford: Swarbrick said it is important for Notre Dame to play annually on the West Coast. Translated: These series probably aren't going anywhere. Last year the two announced an extension of their home-and-home series through the 2019 season.

http://espn.go.com/blog/notre-dame-footb...-rivalries



Irish athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Notre Dame will continue to play Navy, which bailed out the school in the 1940s when it was struggling financially by putting programs on the South Bend campus. The Irish also will keep playing Southern California and Stanford, to keep a presence on the West Coast.

Notre Dame's McGraw expects UConn rivalry to continue
[Image: connecticut_at_notre_dame_womens_basketball.jpg]

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Though the Big East has been good to her program, Muffet McGraw is fine with leaving it behind.

But powerhouse Connecticut? The Notre Dame women's basketball coach has no intention of letting that rivalry die.

Even as her program begins a new life in the ACC at some point, McGraw confirmed Wednesday that she will approach Huskies coach Geno Auriemma about continuing that series in non-conference play.
