Bushido..... Get a life you tard. Stay off of this site with your 8 page posts. You make a few salient points here but you have no cred dude. You are one of the worst homers in history. Blind Nole, Championships are for Canes.
Enjoy another 3-4 loss season....
Your brief is very well written and presented. Your volumious brief was a lot of work on your part. You appear to be extremely well versed in the details of BCS and conference contracts/deals. Can you share your sources? If not, then why should you care about whether the "U" follows FSU?
Let me present an alternate scenario, hopefully shorter. With Pitt and Cuse, both with a rich football history, joining the ACC, the conference is positioned to expand to 16 schools. One of those schools will be Notre Dame. At that point, the ACC is positioned to be a major player in collegiate athletics for decades to come. The ACC will have every major TV market on the east coast locked down.
When, Notre Dame joins the ACC, the conference will have schools in the following major TV markets: Miami. Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, Baltimore, Pittsburg, New York Boston, indianoplis and Chicago. That's not bad financial positioning.
One year ago, there was much talk about the end of the Big 12. What has changed since then? TCU (Ft. Worth) and WVU (Morgantown) have joined their conference, replacing Texas A&M (Houston TV market) and Missouri (St. Louis market). They are not out of the woods yet. As a Texan, I hope the Big12 survives. However, they are a shell of their former self and in a much weaker position than the ACC.
As a loyal Miami alum and fan, I highly respect FSU and cherish our rivalry with the Noles. I hope our rich traditions continue for another hundred years. Thank you for presenting your opinion.

BushidoNole- I totally agree on your point about money. Always follow the money trail.
However, I'm finding it hard to follow the Big12's money trail. What major TV markets does the Big12 have a presence? Dallas. Ok. Houston. Maybe. No other Top 40 TV market, the real money trail. The ACC counters with new York, Atlanta, Washington, Boston, Baltimore, Pittsburg, and Charlotte, And that doesn't include Chicago and Indy. Why would ND want to join that lineup of markets? Your theory just doesn't add up.
