AGREED.

Links ND/Louis to PITT/Cuse.
I like it.

Quote:but I do like the Navy football only with exit agreement if ND joins Full.
Problem with this is that only gets us to 15 football teams, which means you STILL need to add another - right back to Cincinnati, I guess? Or are you saying add BOTH?

RE: GTS' ACC Map
A strategic outpost in Philly wouldn't be a bad idea. I like Temple or UConn (although those helmets need to go).

I don't really get the Cincy fascination. Philly > Cincy

add them both but put it in writing that if ND joins full Navy is out.
2 reasons 1. Not to sure if ND would ever join. 2. ND is linked with Navy so they would probably look out for them too.
Just Guessing?

I agree w/ Temple - I like the idea of Philadelphia.

Re Cincinnati: it isn't the school we're fascinated with - it's all those high school football players in the state of Ohio.*

* that and Skyline chili.

I don't think there's an obvious solution, that's why people are sort of all over the map (literally & figuratively). I say Cincy because I think they've done more with their program, plus they connect the dots a little better than a second PA team.

I had no trouble with Temple when they came into the Big East and I think they strengthened that league. But I don't think they're as strong as Cincy (and, let's face it, neither team really strengthens the ACC - they'd only be talked about if paired with a stronger #15).

UConn's basically the same as Temple, program-wise (perhaps a bit stronger), plus, like Temple, they do nothing to connect the dots on the map.

I'd accept Navy (grudgingly) to get Notre Dame... FIRST.

I'm guessing, though, that if ND joined for football, they'd want another football power as #16 (and they'd likely get it, too!)

Perhaps, but all four together are pretty weak as a pod overall.

None of them having really accomplished much in football in the "modern" era.

Yeah, that's something we all seem to forget. ND joining for football opens up the options.

I see what you're saying from a market standpoint Philly>Cincy
I was just thinking programs and brands.
Temple vs. Cincy? A PUSH
maybe another option will emerge?
