BREAKING: Notre Dame to ACC, Will Stay Independent in Football

BREAKING: Notre Dame to ACC

Per multiple sources, including the Chicago Tribune, Notre Dame plans to stay independent in football (and HOCKEY!, you hosers), but will move its other sports to the ACC. Details have not been announced, but press conferences are expected this afternoon. Presumably, Notre Dame would have to wait the 27 month requirement, but we saw how well that worked for the Big East and teams like West Virginia.

At first blush, it would appear that the Big 12's plan to stay at 10 members and not try and poach Florida State and Clemson has backfired tremendously.

Thoughts and discussions welcome.

UPDATE: Notre Dame to play 5 football games per year against ACC teams. ACC will increase exit fees to $50MM.
