    I know this has been said several times, BUT...

    to all those hand wringing over this (IMO a bit short sighted)....it certainly appears to be a prelude to football membership in near future when TV contracts make sense to do so. little difft than ND in BE. I don't recall ND contractually agreeing to play 5 BE teams every year.

    ...not to mention all Presidents agreeing to 50M buyout w/out knowing future plans.

    So how do you make that logical leap, as if it's a fait accompli that ND will join in football eventually? $50M means a lot to the rest of the ACC, so they'll stay until they don't want to anymore.

    We never had to play a set number. It was expected we would schedule some and we did(Cuse and Pitt, USF). We just were never forced to do it.

    ball
    same way i concluded couple months ago that they were likely to join. based on direction of cf, changing landscape, etc, etc...it just seems to make sense. i say they are in for football w/in 5 years. of course, playing 5 games, is it much different now?
