Swinney thinks Notre Dame could have an unfair advantage by playing less total games than most conference champions

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was in Bristol, Connecticut on Monday to take part in the annual ACC Coaches "Car Wash" at the ESPN headquarters.

Swinney was asked about the College Playoffs and if Notre Dame should be invited to play in the College Football Playoffs without being a full member of a football conference.



Last week, Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel initiated the Notre Dame discussion about whether they had an unfair advantage regards to entry into the college football playoffs.

"I think all independents should join a conference, as a general rule," Pinkel told ESPN.com. "I didn't say Notre Dame in particular – everybody. You don't have independents in the NFL. Leagues are leagues. I just think it's difficult to assess a team that's not in a league. It's nothing against Notre Dame, it's just my opinion."

Notre Dame has an agreement with their current ACC schedule through 2025.
