I kinda like the move but.....
How do you claim independence when you still have to play 5 games against ACC opponents? I guess its the happy medium.
Less than a half season (12), more than half of conference games (9) and increases the Strength of schedule all around.
Its a mutual beneficial. Plus ND counts as a ACC school in our Bowl tie-ins. So i guess we get to claim their wins if they do.
My question is when does it start? 2013? 2020? Also does this allow us to restructure out TV $$$ deal? That is a real question. ACC + ND has to be more money than the current one alone.
