ND joining the ACC for football not so far fetched....
On this shortened edition of LSL, Fox Sports’ Tim Brando (7:05) joined the program to discuss UofL hoops and football and the ACC. 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.

So if ND comes into the fold, the ACC would need #16, which would likely be UConn.
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?

Scenario:

ACC (UConn)
AAC (ODU)
CUSA (NMSU)

That would make some people happy.

ACC at 16 would add pressure on the B12 to also push to 16.

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.

Missouri is not heading to the Big 10 to give up a 40.1 million payout for 1/2 a share for 5 years while they buy into an equal share of the BTN. The BTN last year lost 448 million dollars off of its valuation. It represents a dying cable model so it's present value of 1.142 billion was down 39.2% from 2015-2016. The SECN on the other hand is currently valued at 4.692 billion. But there are no shares in it, and the overhead fronted by the schools was for upgrades in on site production facilities which are streaming ready. So the change in the delivery model doesn't affect us or our worth should the industry shift models.

Add to that the fact that ESPN is investing even more in trying to clean up the picture during streaming and I like our position, and so does Missouri.

BTW the ACC has made the same enhancements at their schools now in preparation for the ACCN.

If Connecticut heads to the ACC it will likely be as #18 and if so with West Virginia, but that's just my opinion. There are many more upsides financially to what a model of 3 divisions of 6 can do for a conference than you can get with 16 or 16 with pods.

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.

I don't see the need for anyone else in the P5 to expand. Adding Cincinnati pushes the P5 caucus to 66, which maintains the P5 majority.

Try to keep this discussion limited to the OP.
