ND would not have just submitted to an ultimatum by the ACC


As an ND fan, I appreciate what the ACC did (for its own self interest reasons) for ND last season.

I think that it was the best move for both ND and the ACC. A win/win.

But, I find the idea that the ACC could have "forced" ND to make a course altering decision of that magnitude over a one season scheduling problem an unsupportable one.

I think that the coaches overstate the leverage the ACC had over ND. I think that John Swofford knew this.

ND was in a tight spot, but would not have abandoned 100 plus years of football independence for a one year fix.

If pressed, it would have taken the hit and cobbled together whatever schedule it could instead.
