I'd be fine with Texas getting the ND deal

Provided some other major changes also happen. Something like this:

The ACC goes single division like 2020, ND and Texas are considered members in all sports.
ND and Texas play each other every year in conference, and that game is on the ACC TV contract.
ND plays at least 6 yearly ACC games (same as now, but including the Texas game).
Texas is required to play eight ACC games (including the ND game).
ND and Texas can earn their way into the ACC championship game.
ACC championship is earned by the two teams with the highest winning percentage, just like 2020.
For Texas and ND non-conference games, plus home games, minus the ND/Texas game, they can keep their independent TV contracts.

This would give ND access to the ACC championship, and they don't have to give up very much. I could also see the ACC not adopt the percentage system, but instead designate two non-ACC-footprint (non-G5) games as "ACC" games for ND (Navy should not be allowed for this purpose) to get them to eight games.

This would give Texas a ND-lite situation, with the Longhorn network remaining viable.

The ACC would instantly get a much better TV contact, since this would overhaul the conference membership. The above changes would give us a bunch of Texas home games, and the ND/Texas game. Also, the ACC would be on par with the Big Ten and SEC in the public perception.

I think with something like that, each party gets more than they give up.
