If superconferences create a new semi-pro football league

then I hope Clemson doesn't join it. I would be happier if Clemson played college football against whatever remaining institutions preferred it.

I have never been upset that Clemson can't compete for a Super Bowl. I am also an alum of Georgia Southern. I can tell you I had no feelings of inferiority when we won national championships in Div 1-AA. It was awesome. I cared just as much. It was the league we were in. We won it. No shame in that. Same with high school. I wasn't upset that my AA school (GA) never won the AAAAA title.

If Clemson is in a college football league which exists parallel to a semi-pro league then I will be fine. Just as I am fine that Clemson can't win a Super Bowl.

Clemson must and needs to remain in the fore front of whatever is happening in College Football!

What may be transpiring may not end up as college football.

It looks like colleges are now investing in semi-pro football teams. It's losing the actual college football element. It may end up just like a college themed USFL. The arms race may actually be killing the thing that started the race.

But it's more pro football than college. Let's at least

appreciate this fact.

Everyone else is trapped in the mindset of "do anything necessary to have a relevant conference." Notre Dame knows better. So maybe they have a unique perspective on this, decide they don't want semi-pro, realize that they will survive as they are, and other schools rally around them to save actual college football.

Just a wild, unrealistic thought.

The commercial value of Notre Dame is clearly #1 among all football programs.
Look at their huge nationwide exclusive NBC television contract plus the fact that everyone is attempting to have them in their conference.

Yes, so I wonder if they have the inclination to hold fast.***

Only people who do not understand NIL think colleges are semi pro. I wonder if we have more a dozen football players who have income from NIL?
