The question then becomes do we really go to the 4 conference 16-team model?
Texahoma four to Pac-12?
Mizzouri and Kansas to B1G?
WVU, TCU, and Tech to SEC?

I'm cool with that alignment but I think you mean Baylor and not Tech to the SEC. Iowa St and Kansas St to the AAC.

Baylor isn't going anywhere Muskie. And the thread is about N.D. likely going all in with the ACC, not about realignment options.

And Notre Dame isn't joining the ACC in 2019. I've looked at their future schedules going out 12 years. Notre Dame has so many non-ACC games that 3 different years they'll play only 4 ACC games. They aren't going to play 8.

Future scheduling has never stopped a realignment move, ever.

Interesting. I don't recall you saying this previously -- sorry if I missed it in an earlier post -- and I'd like to understand the rationale for it. Could you explain a bit further?

When does ND's contract with NBC run out?

My guess is ND would propose:

1) Navy for football only, and
2) Georgetown for all other sports.


That would allow ND to keep playing Navy every year without using up a valuable OOC slot and fill in the gap, geographically, that the ACC has with Maryland's departure.

It would also satisfy ND's desire to have a better "fit", i.e., to have more schools like itself in the ACC, with Georgetown being Catholic (sort of, lol) and private.

But, all of this is Brando fantasy, anyway.
I think Navy and Nova would make a better fit for the ACC. In addition to Maryland, the ACC would have Philadelphia/South Jersey. And I believe Nova's Olympic sports are perhaps more competitive than Georgetown's.

I tend to agree with the bolded statement. But to your other point, if the ACC were to then add Navy for football only, why would they need to add anybody else? Why does basketball need more teams?

I'm sure this will be scoffed at, but I'm not sure everybody in the ACC would be happy with all the ramifications of Notre Dame joining for football.

Going to 16 teams almost surely means going to a 9 game league schedule. Since this was recently voted down by the narrowest of margins, some members might ask for tough concessions for their support on this. ND might be one of them.

And divisional alignment won't be any easier either.

That's not to say the ACC is unique in this regard. Any conference that goes to 16 teams would face the same issues. Unless, of course, a 13th regular season game is added to the schedule. 07-coffee3

RE: ND joining the ACC for football not so far fetched....
I don't know why you guys keep persisting with the "Navy" stuff? Don't you know that all three service academies have essentially agreed to stay out of the P5. Height and weight restrictions mean P5 schedules injure too many cadet and middies who are giving up an average of 80lbs a man on the line. And three weeks ago they did away with waivers for athletes getting a professional draft. All personnel will now serve their commitment before being eligible to leave for professional sports. The question is not will they enter the P conferences, but rather will they stay in the G ones.

ND opens their 2019 season Labor Day night at Louisville.

He also explained why he thinks Notre Dame will join the ACC in football. We reminisced about the Metro conference and the always entertaining Louisville-Memphis State games.

Listen HERE

It merely verified what I was told by a guy who has extremely well placed connections at N.D. He said that N.D. would join in concert with the ACCN's debut in 2019 and that they wanted Cincinnati as a travel partner.

So when I listened to the pod cast last night I could hear Brando resonating what I had been told.

It bodes very well for the ACCN's debut if it proves to be reliable.

IF ND where to ever join.

Sorry, it will not be UCONN. It will more than likely be Houston, Cincy or Navy (FB Only) ACC wants into Texas market and Houston TV market is perfect for the ACC network. Basketball would be second for any consideration of a team when ND.

ND may want Navy and the ACC has already shown it will do about anything to get ND to join.
