Well, this doesn't help, but it is not a huge impact. Sounds like a nice compromise for the ACC and ND. Play 5 conf games. BC was on the schedule anyway. Keep independent FB deal. With Cuse to the ACC, LAX is a better fit. And hoops is a mid program in either conference.
Without FB, it's kind of like losing Marquette. Not as bad as losing Cuse was, or not as bad as losing UConn or Louisville would be. But we need some more stability, obviously.
Good luck to ND. Let's hope for an amicable split without lawsuits. I expect that - much more class from ND.
