either play a full schedule or take you're other sports and get the he!! out!


Ok but do they ever actually join the ACC???


Posted: Oct 21, 2014 4:30 PM
 

I thought they were in 2016 once their NBC contract was up?


They will never join. There is no reason for them to.

Contract with NBC too good to share revenues. There is no telling how big that contract is.

They got the gold mine and we(ACC )got the shaft!

They are being treated as the king of the acc now, why join and lose that!

2020 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

I'm OK if they keep the contract but be a full member!


Posted: Oct 21, 2014 6:55 PM
 

I don't mind if Clemson is on NBC when they plat at home or at ND.


Re: Ok but do they ever actually join the ACC???

Conventional wisdom is they would only join if they were nudged out of the playoffs bc of a weak SOS and needed the full protection of a power 5 affiliation to solve that.

Who knows what the committee rankings will look like coming up, but if you go by the media and coaches, ND gets more love for their schedule than a full ACC member. It's odd though. Stanford is a fraud - again. USC is a name, but now a power. Remember they lost to BC. ASU - decent, but know more impressive that Ok state or Georgia.

ND is getting SEC type love in the rankings right now. I don't think their schedule is any tougher than FSU or Clemson's for that matter. Maybe it's just temporary love for ND bc it fit the ESPN agenda to denegrate FSU and the ACC.

Rambling post, but short answer is I don't think they become a full football member anytime soon.

It was September 1970 and I was on leave from the Army before shipping off to Vietnam. I thought it would be a great idea to catch one more Tiger football game before my year away. This was an ancient time long before the advent of either the Internet or FedEx, so to get my tickets in a timely fashion, a trip to Clemson was in order. After visiting some friends, who prudently continued their schooling and deferment, in graduate school, I zipped over to the Athletic Department which was housed in Fike Field House. Game tickets could be bought in the lobby of Fike, but when I got there, no one else was around. As I waited and looked into the ticket window, out of a side door bounded a rather large fellow full of energy and full of himself. It was the Clemson Athletic Director, former Coach, and all around Legend, Frank Howard. Since there was no one else around, just little old me, I was the only human available for him to share his excitement. He said, "Hey boy, come over here, I want to tell you what I have just done." I dutifully said, "Yes Coach Howard." He said, "I just got off the phone with Notre Dame and signed them to a 'home and away deal' for '77 and '78." For a 23 year old off to Vietnam that seemed like an eternity away, but now,in retrospect, playing them toe-to-toe in '77 and beating them in their house in '78 is one of the keys leading to the Tiger's success and national relevance of the 1980's.
