The ACC tried to be able to select their champion any way they chose (eliminate divisions) but was shot down, maybe someone can get the legislation through the NCAA. If it's possible, I do believe the ACC would stop at 15 (Notre Dame all in).

The rejection the divisionless concept I think was when many felt the ACC was still ripe for the picking IMO. Giving you that benny would have provided the ACC needed stability. Because of the teams in your conference I would still recommend a divisionless set up for the ACC. That said I think expansion via the B12 for the ACC would be a disaster to the equilibrium Swofford has finally achieved.

I would agree about staying away from Big 12 teams unless of course it is at the insistence of ESPN.
Swofford has done a masterful job getting the ACC to it's current position. The Notre Dame question still looms, and although I believe the Irish will eventually join fully, the timing is unknown.

I actually think ND as a partial is the best situation for the ACC. It provide the conference with a football credible team that wants to play former BE schools like BC. Full membership in a division format will see the Irish leverage to be a whatever conference has GT, Clemson and a FL team.

There are many that would agree with your thoughts re: Notre Dame's partial membership.
