thesundevils.com Notre Dame’s move to the ACC hasn’t just made football scheduling difficult for the Irish, it’s now affecting other schools as well. Arizona State was slotted to play Notre Dame in the 2014 season, but the Irish are now attempting to back out. Notre Dame’s agreement to play five ACC teams per season has forced the school to drop a few of its opponents for 2014, and the school has (it looks like) decided upon swapping in the Florida State Seminoles for the Sun Devils. But it’s apparently the way the Irish went about notifying ASU that’s gotten AD Steve Patterson all riled up. Fox Sports Arizona reports that Patterson went on Phoenix radio station XTRA Sports 910 AM and had some choice words for Notre Dame and AD Jack Swarbrick. “The school didn’t have the courtesy to have the athletic director (Jack Swarbrick) call the athletic director at ASU to discuss it,” Patterson said. “They had their PR guy call (ASU’s media relations office) to give us a message Friday afternoon while everybody was out of town at the Final Four. “At least in the little Catholic town I grew up in — Beaver Dam, Wis. — the good nuns wouldn’t have thought that was a very appropriate way to honor your word.” He also added that he expects Notre Dame to live up to its contract. “Look, our position is we’re playing the game,” Patterson said. “On Oct. 25, Notre Dame is going to be here and we’re going to play football.” How they’ll settle this is anyone’s guess, but it should be interesting to keep an eye on.
