So, they're (like) dating or something... It's not a full-blown relationship, but the two are taking some time together as a group to see what's what... In every sport BUT football and hockey, it looks like the Fighting Irish are going to play five games in football against Atlantic and Coastal schools. But we don't know who their opponents are going to be and if they're locked in or if they're rotating so all conference members can get their fill of an Irish home date... This makes sense... you're hanging out at the pool, but you only need to go in during the adult swim for the foreseeable future. Notre Dame is a brand and it's not damaged by all of the Global Armageddon we talk about every football off-season. And with schools going for money grabs (because we all know that's what they are), the Irish needed some kind of stability in their schedule.

Breaking Down Notre Dame Move from Big East to ACC

Breaking Down Notre Dame Move from Big East to ACCNotre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick has worked his magic again folks.  It looks like Notre Dame is bolting from the Big East…finally.  Non-Football sports at Notre Dame will move to the ACC and become its 15th member.  Irish football on the other hand will remain independent, sort of.  You see, Notre Dame has agreed to play five games...

BREAKING: Notre Dame Will Leave The Big East For The ACC

Brett McMurphy of ESPN is reporting that Notre Dame will leave the Big East and join the ACC as a full member with the exception of football; however the Irish will play five games annually against ACC football opponents.

Notre Dame to the ACC: Reaction

I wake up early this morning to find the Notre Dame bloggers chanting “ACC! ACC!”. It wasn’t until later we all find out what they are talking about. All the rumors were confirmed that the ACC was adding the staunch independent from South Bend to the fold...for the most part. Here is what we know: -Notre Dame will become a partial member of the conference no later than 2015...

Notre Dame moves to the ACC: Winners and Losers

It was announced on Wednesday that Notre Dame would be moving all of their sports to the ACC except for football, which would remain independent but establish a scheduling partnership of five games a year with the football schools in the league. Hockey won't be moving to the ACC, either. So who are the winners and losers in the latest round of realignment? Winner: Notre...

Big East, college hoops heyday over

Notre Dame's move from the Big East Conference to the Atlantic Coast Conference, announced Wednesday, comes at the height of college football season. So it's natural that the knee-jerk reaction focuses on football. Notre Dame will become an ACC school in every sport but football, allowing it to hold onto its national brand.

What Notre Dame's Move Means For Pitt

It's unclear at this time whether the addition of Notre Dame will affect its annual series with Pitt--which goes through to 2016 at this point. It is emminent that a new TV deal with the ACC, could make Pitt's payday even larger thanks to the latest addition to the conference.

Notre Dame Flies South; Still Awful

Back up on that scissor-lift, pumpkin dick. As we all learned yesterday, Notre Dame finally did it. They finally did what everyone wanted them to do and joined a conference. Those high priests finally put down Jerry Sandusky’s autobiography and stepped into the 21st century. What a relief it is to see them get with the times and hop aboard the SEC. Oh, it’s not the SEC? My...
