Notre Dame will be in the Big East if anything.

That won't happen. If ND is going to join a conference, it'd be a presitigious one, not a junior varsity one.

Big East has been dreamin of ND joinin for a while. Won't happen.


Notre Dame is in the Big East already for basketball so joining for football makes sense. Unless there is another major conference overhaul that would be the conference they join for football. My bet is they don't join any conference until the TV contract well dries up.

Big East wouldn't be a big enough help to their football team.

And your'e right about the TV contract.

being in a BCS conference is help to any football team and like I said they're already in the Big East for every sport except football.

Notre Dame should not be allowed the TV contract.  This to me is no different than paying players and providing for recruits.  But again, this is why college football cannot compare to the NFL.  By tradition, schools are treated differently and allowed to get away with more, compared to other programs.  It isn't how good you are on the field, it's where you went to school?  The biggest joke is NBC continuing to pay that joke of a program money for airing such an ugly product.
At least they lowered their standards and accepted a bid to a non-major bowl.......oh that's right, they haven't been eligible for a bowl in quite some time.
Krazy is right though, they belong in the Big 10; it's their only chance at regaining credibility.  I still don't get the love for Weis?

Notre Dame has a TV contract because it could make NBC money.  How is that the same as paying players/recruits?  Not sure what your vendetta against that school is all about.  Did they not accept your application or something?

I'm confused. What are these "higher standards" that Notre Dame has?

According to THIS article at the Universities own web site, Notre Dame ranked 14th nationwide for Academic & Athletic excellence, behind Stanford, Texas, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, UCLA, USC, Duke, Georgia, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Arizona State, and Ohio State.

I also noticed that Notre Dame's average incoming freshman has an SAT score several hundred points lower than the average incoming freshman at USC. Is USC not considered as having a decent football program?

Are Notre Dame's standard's that much higher than Boston College's or Michigan's? What about Virginia Tech?

And since ND lost to Navy, does that mean Annapolis has low standards? Or maybe ND just has a really crappy coach, which is it?

It is the entire "tradition" thing that has ruined college football.  Football is a game, not a popularity contest of the who's who and the rich and elite.

wow. drama queen.

notre dames tradition ruined college football. hahahaha. now i really do think they rejected your application.

anyone that knows anything about college football knows that it's good for college football when notre dame is a good team. they have a huge fan base and they travel well.

to say their tradition ruined college football is just about the most far fetched clueless thing i've ever read.

WTF?? Tradition is what makes college football great. However, as was pointed out, NBC televises those games STRICTLY based on the $ factor, not tradition.

Wow, great tradition when for years they annointed a champion, even if they lost their bowl game.  Championships was based upon regular season, and VOTES!!  Now they annoint a champion even when there are probably other teams that could beat them.  College Football is definitely a sport where it's not how you finish a season, it's how you start it...in the polls. PAthetic.

We vote for political office, we play the game to decide champions.

First off... how about a coherent sentence. Just one. Please

Secondly, what the hell are you babbling about?

ND is a champion of what? What are these imaginary polls that have annointed ND an imaginary champion?

You're a drunken mess.
