I am in South Bend on a conference call with Penn State describing the advantages of having those two schools join the ACC. While the current TV deal does not compare with the B10 or SEC, a re-negotiated TV deal with both of those two would be gigantic.
It would also reduce the effect of the B10's grab of MD and Rutgers and put them on an island (of futility) and really lock up the east coast. Theoretically we might be able to move to a seven game ACC season to accomodate ND (using rotating pods). I think if you have to entice Penn State with $$ until the TV deal is renegotiated...you do it.
Maybe we could then be in a position to negotiate a better ACC Network with ESPN, who knows.
