DeLoss Dodds was on a personal mission to get Notre Dame into the Big XII with the same type of deal that Notre Dame has with the ACC. He is friends with Jack Swarbrick, and he's been public about his interest in association with Notre Dame. He looked at the ACC as a possible Texas home before the ACC had affiliation with Notre Dame. Now that the ACC has that affiliation, my speculation is that it will increase his view of the ACC. Nothing I've heard him say publicly says that he wants to leave the Big XII though.
