Apparently this meeting between Swofford and the BOT

Posted: Jul 19, 2012 10:44 PM

has been in the works for some time, but was kept under wraps. Per Twitter . . .

From Cory Fravel:

Various topics. The agenda is unknown though. I'll have more later. I've known for 2+ weeks but asked to not announce this

And then from Larry Williams:

Larry Williams ?@LarryWilliamsTI
BOT chair D. Wilkins told me: "No doubt, future expansion of the ACC will be talked about" on Swofford visit. More at

I'm thinking it is a personal visit to explain the standing offer the ACC has to Notre Dame and how further expansion with ND will resolve some of the money issues raised by Clemson from the recent contract renewal.

ND is not joining a conference. They have zero reason to.

There has been a lot of push over the past decade for ND to join a conference, but some of the older boosters keep arguing that their independent status is too important.

They have reasons to, and they all involve recruiting, SOS, and being relevant in today's college football landscape. ND is still ND, but they are still living on a well built history and it is starting to catch up with them. The BCS definitely didn't help them, and the new "playoff" system doesn't do them any favors.

1. They play at every corner of the country, their recruiting is fine.

2. they make more than they would in a conference

3. the new play off includes them

4. And extended playoff to 8 or more REALLY helps them out.

5. A conference cannot dictate their schedule if they so choose to go for higher SOS. Example: This season

6. Their fans

They're not joining a conference unless NBC tell them to shove it which I don't see happening.

1. They have averaged a Top 15 recruiting class (Scout) the past 10 years, with their worst classes being years two and three.

2. Their strength of schedule is among the strongest every year because they averaged playing 9.4 BCS Conference teams a year the past 10 years, and they have never played a FCS team. From this season through 2016 they will play an average of 9.6 teams from BCS conferences, with the non-BCS teams being primarily Navy and BYU.

3. The deal with the Orange Bowl, the fact that they don't have any problems selling out neutral site games in Jerry World, will not have problems selling out games this year in Dublin, Ireland and Chicago and their soon to be renegotiated NBC deal means they are relevant in college football.

But he's right.

You don't ask the head man to attend your BOT meeting unless there are heavy subjects being discussed or seriour questions being asked.
