So will the ACC be forever the bridesmaid when it comes to conference football for ND? The old Big East was and that conference might have survived had ND not had the NBC-TV deal that enabled them to operate autonomously.

My guess is ND stays independent unless either the playoff system or their sweetheart deal with NBC dictates otherwise.

Notre Dame never had a guaranteed games arrangement with the Big East. The Irish play 5 a year against the ACC, with all conferences members rotating home and away games. The two situations are not close to comparable.
