ND is pretty happy about this

Pete Thamel and Pete Sampson lay it out quite well (I don't know how to copy/post tweets here) below.

This is pretty simple. ND doesn't have a conference title game, so they'd have extra rest. They'd also get to host a game in South Bend in December. There's a lot to like about that. ND AD Jack Swarbrick help build the model, so ND is going to be on board with it.

Again, not everything about independence is a plus for Notre Dame. But it’s about the total sum, not winning every battle.

The fact Notre Dame can’t have a first-round bye because it’s independent is a loss. But stronger independence w/ more Playoff access is a much bigger win.
