Conference Realignment Board

I'm fine to test the waters with more games in 2020 or even 2021

if needed to help ND's schedule and the conference as well and see how that "feels". For the record I also doubt there will be any season this year.

But I'm totally against ANY chance of ND playing in the ACCCG unless already a member - that would be foolish and a mockery of the ACC. You don't get to test drive conference membership, you have to be all in - that's kinda the definition - and you surely should not get to win a title not being a member.

I've stated before on here it will be a while before ND joins, probably a long while and maybe never, but according to some of my close ND peeps it was/is closer than many think.

BTW, These peeps are much more connected than I am - this was my seat at last VT game at ND. The "new" "old" money. During most of my tailgating, walking into the stadium, touring campus, meeting fans around town in general, etc. the average ND fans were awesome - and TerryD and Goldendomer are prime examples of that kind of attitude on these boards.

However the attitudes of ND fans around these prime level seats, my peeps excepted, was jaw dropping. They made no attempt to engage in, or return offers of, conversation - try and learn something about the opposition. It seemed beneath them, essentially turned their noses up and appeared to wonder how and why I was even there, could be I was about the only one there fully decked out in VT garb. Many of these fans honestly earned their elitist ND fan reputation.

Also - I'm not a prude and don't expect a football game to be a sanctuary, but the number of F-bombs dropped was amazing - with lots of young kids around as well. I mean, I probably muttered one or two on the last drive myself - but with these fans is was loudly in almost every sentence.

At a different time, place and/or mixture of people I wouldn't have thought twice about it but the whole scene just didn't fit what I had experienced before the game and what I thought I would run into in that setting.

Stay safe.

Looking forward to leveling the score in 2021 - hopefully ;)
