Who gets the 5 games? They can't get Duke over and over.

Oh look it's WVU acting butt hurt because the ACC denied them based on the fact they couldn't spell ACC. Go burn a couch.

Am I butthurt just a little but mainly because the ACC started all of the conference expansion and took away WVU rival games. Do I think ND is a good move for the ACC not one bit. ND uses conferences for their benefit only. When they do play well in football they get to jump other conference teams and play in conference bowl games without having to face conference teams.

Irish will never join the ACC as a full football member. They have the NBC deal and it will be renewed in 2015. They keep all that money thereselves.

Far as the ACC goes I still see FSU and Clemson leaving. 50 million exit fee isnt that much. Missouri and Texas A&M total exit fee was 100 million. But the buyout fee was only 37 million.

This moved didnt help the ACC one bit as far as football goes. ND was already playing 4 ACC teams this year (including Pitt and Syracuse) So they only need to add one more. ACC is still the 5th best conference in football.

WVU actually will come out better in the Big12. More recruiting grounds and a more national exposure.

SEC

Big 12

Big 10

PAC12

Yep sounds right.

Agree on 4 with SEC,PAC and B1G being set.

The last conference whether it be the Big12-2-1+1-1+1 or the ACC will depend solely on where UTx decides it wants to be. If the go Pac or ACC, Big12-2-1+1-1+1 is gone, if they stay in the Big12-2-1+1-1+1 ACC is out imo, even with a Notre Dame in conference.

If UTx comes to the ACC it will be because them and ND will have the lions share of football tv money, Clemson, FSU, VaTech and UNC in tier 2 and everyone else in the lower tier. UTx and ND will NOT be equals in any conference.

The biggest part of this is the 5 football games. The rest is irrelevant. That will allow the ACC to get more football money eventually.

If ND and some other team do come to the ACC, there will be 5 power conferences. And the big 12 will be last on the money list, except for Texas. Clemson and FSU aint going anywhere for the foreseeable future.

Congrats ACC on becoming the Big East II. Thank God ND didnt move to the Big 12. They will demand and demand and not give back to any conference they belong too. Dont count on them becoming full football members they love controlling their football schedule and dont want to give up traditional opponents.

ACC better get a football powerhouse for the final spot or they will start losing members.

Nobody is going to leave the ACC with the $50 million exit fee they just voted on. There is a lot of money in top tier college athletics, but $50 is unaffordable for almost any school.

Yeah Squirrel - I thought "karma was fixing to bite the ACC in the ass"

Instead they just bagged the FB program every conference in the country has wanted forever.

This is a big day for the ACC.

Tired of the ACC becoming a northern conference. It used to go just from College Park to Atlanta, with 4 of 8 teams in NC. Now it stretches from Boston to Indiana to Miami. I know these conferences have to chase the money, but it seems like every game used to mean something because it was against a school fairly close by. I could care less about playing BC, Syracuse, Pitt, and Miami, or ND in anything other than football. College football is settling into a bad equilibrium here, with everybody expanding as fast as they can. They need to have a 16 team playoff with 8 guaranteed spots for conference winners, allowing these mega-conferences to break up in to more sensible sizes. Plus, football may be generating revenue, but now we have to pay to send all our non-revenue teams halfway across the country to play conference games? It's ridiculous, and it's bad for college athletics.

this move probably pushes the 14 full members of the acc tv cut closer to the 20 million range. they become the number 1 basketball conference(the only thing most of them they really care about) & also still will get a cut of the football playoff pie. whether you like them or not, the Irish bring a huge national following & still produce stellar ratings for nbc. FSU & Clemson or V.tech will have clearer path to the playoffs as members of the ACC(which is all they care about)
