On November 2, 2005, Notre Dame announced that because it had agreed to a request from the Big East to play teams from that conference each season, it would suspend the Boston College series following the 2010 season. Big East Commissioner Mike Tranghese said the conference made the request after Boston College, Miami, and Virginia Tech withdrew from the Big East to join the Atlantic Coast Conference.


Dude - you can go look it up. I'm not your researcher. There are so many links about the current news that it'll be fun for you to sift through them to find news from 2005. If you're so skeptical, c'est la vie.


You haven't been able to substantiate anything you've said. Well, it didn't take long to show your claim that ND agreed to suspend games vs BC following the 2010 season wasn't accurate. Wait, let me guess, that was a back room hand shake. Right bud?

Oh, and here's a link to support that:

Sure I'm skeptical at your claims, because they can't be backed up. If it doesn't take long, then won't be much trouble for you to provide.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! Funniest thing I've read all day. There are countless scenarios out there and every single one of them seems to point to Wyoming being left behind. Thats what happens when your state has more sheep than people.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH you are an idiot. AFA already told them no because of a loss of rivalries, so obviously rivalries are important to the range schools.

Link? Why do people keep making claims that can't be substantiated. If there's a "word out" and "it's been reported on numerous sources", then it shouldn't take long for you to provide a link to at least one of those. I'm sincerely interested to read about that.

Connor Lyons@ConnorHLyons
@murphsturph if Notre Dame is worried about scheduling think how hard it will be for Idaho


Dan Wetzel@DanWetzel
Source: concern over future football scheduling drove Notre Dame to make ACC move. Bigger than weakening of Big East


Maybe you should try checking out some news sources yourself then you wouldn't be so uninformed and expect others to spoon feed you.

Scheduling.
Athletic director Jack Swarbrick huddled over and over with his staff and tried to play out how the Irish would fill out their 12-game schedule in the years and decades to come, a Notre Dame source said.
Football scheduling issues were Jack Swarbrick's push for the Irish to join the ACC . (AP) That, more than any other factor, led to Wednesday's announcement that Notre Dame would join the ACC in all sports except football, according to the source. The agreement stipulates Notre Dame plays five football games per year against ACC opponents, but not compete for the league title and play eight games, as a full member would. That provides the Irish with the firm scheduling base it coveted while maintaining the freedom to maintain a national schedule.

This move is soley about football scheduling for ND, they have already said it is a financially nuetral move.


At this point, we don't the the financial benefit. If the nBE tv deal doesn't match or exceed that of the ACC, then it will be a financial boost. But, may not be part of their decision. Hard to believe though, seems all these realignment decisions have been financially driven.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is a multi-phase move. All sports except football until their TV contract runs out, then FB moves to the ACC as well.

Either way, I think ND is more stable affiliated with the ACC than the BE (and no, thats not a dig on anyone).

Could they not have made the same agreement with the Big East if scheduling was the only reason? They obviously wanted no part of Big East football and chose to schedule with another conference and move their olympic sports out.

CSU AD Jack Graham - “If you get outside our borders, no one knows who we are. I was in Phoenix (last week) for the Mountain West meetings and there was a reception with all of the athletic directors. The bartender said to me, ‘Colorado State, where are you guys, Boulder?’ I’ve gotten that all my career. No one knows us outside our own boundaries."

Have to agree

Now seeing info that the move by ND was not done for financial reasons

aka...stability

Serious question, if you have everyone on ignore, what's the point in visiting the board? You can't read anything because you have "ignored" every poster here, except Hal.

Obviously they see what everyone else does that the BE is not stable.

No one outside of the Big4 is stable though. All the ACC is the best of the rest.

That is why the Big East just got closer to adding BYU as the 14th member.

Hardly. The BE has been after BYU forever and the Borg hasn't joined. If anything, this makes BYU even less likely to be interested.

The quote was from 2005, you phucking tool. The relevant part was that Notre Dame had announced a scheduling arrangement with the Big East. And if you recall, I had stated that ND hadn't really held up their end of the scheduling arrangement.

Not everyone is on ignore.

Just the ones I find tiresome and not worth reading, including Hal. most of the BSU contingent went on the ignore the past few days.

And I have to say it has been much, much nicer. There have been numerous threads discussing sports without any flames or BS. Just needed to prune out those who offer nothing but fighting.

Totally agree. The borg are hoping for a big 12 invite.
