Avert your eyes should Pence ever come to GT to speak. Snowflakes are all around us.
Perhaps it was the hour, but one of those is not like the others.
Also, agree with your first statement.
With the current members, that would make sense. It would be absolutely ignorant not to understand that additional members would change that thought.
I'm guessing part of the deal w/ ESPN for an ACC channel will be a 9 game conference schedule
Actually, we get to renegotiate before ESPN goes down.
ND wants to continue to play USC and Navy every season and therefore would not want to play 9 conference games. We don't know who the 16th team would be so it is impossible to speculate how they would vote. We don't even know for sure how each school voted last year. It was 8-6 to remain at 8 games. I would guess Clemson, FSU, GT, Louisville, and Pitt voted remain because they each have a non-con rival. I wouldn't be surprised if Duke and VT voted remain also just because they have an advantage in their cross over scheduling. I think that only more money will make a 9 game schedule happen and I am not sure if ESPN in a position to do that right now.
You contradict yourself. It is two votes that change the math. You also point out that Notre Dame could not play two out of conference games, also a math error. It is a 12 game season now.
You are a special kind of dumbass.
You are an even more special kind of dumbass. You can't envision the obvious.
The easy way to solve this dilemma is to only count the seven games on your side toward the ACCCG.
Then you can let ND play 8 and let everyone else play 9 (or more) for ESPN. Cross-division games wouldnt count in the ACCCG standings.
Also, Miami has to be "North" and UVA south.
Sounds good to me.
Money won't work. It is about the amount of content as well as the quality.
What if the 16th team is USC or Navy?
öööö me. I don't even know what is real anymore.
Its part of why people always include Navy. But IIRC, doesnt Navy play at ND every year? If so, I can't imagine even ND would want Navy in as that would complicate that arrangement.
USC it is, then. Welcome, Trojans, to the Atlantic coast.
The Atlantic Coast Conference can split into two divisions of 8: Atlantic and Non-Atlantic
Notre Dame hasn't won anything in almost 30 years. They are a has been. Playing them isn't a big deal anymore.
Classic ACC and New ACC
Keep telling yourself that
