"When I was young, I was sure of many things; now there are only two things of which I am sure: one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Saviour. He is well-taught who learns these two lessons." -John Newton
i guess a lot of you just can not read. notre dame has a contract with the acc that they must join if they decide to take the plunge. and the acc is not going to fall apart so you tin hatters can believe whatever you wish.
Two major things the ACC can do in response to the SEC expansion.
1. Strongly resist any expansion of the CFP. Convince other conferences to vote with us in opposing any expansion. That would put the SEC in a box by making it MUCH HARDER for any school to make the playoffs not named Alabama. Do not expand to 12 as that will only further enrich the SEC since they would place 5-6 teams in the playoffs.
2. Form an alliance with another conference. The ACC should join forces with the BIG or PAC 12 and agree to a 5 year deal, where member schools would agree to play each other in two games each season. This would present the networks/cable providers/conference networks with great cross regional games, creating product for the platforms for both conferences. Fans would enjoy great away games as well.
What the ACC does not need to do is panic and add two additional bodies (WVA, Cinn, etc.) just to get to 16 teams. Any team the ACC would bring in would have to bring in $50M in additional revenue just to increase each school's take by 1M. I don't see any team, outside ND, having that type of value.
