If the SEC doesnt bite on the proposal Stech is suggesting, I would think many would argue (or threaten legal action) for the 8 team playoff (SEC & Big Ten likely get 2 teams in every year). I agree that the ACC doesnt have the leverage to push for the 8 team playoff now, but it may be a viable second option if they are afraid (or cant push through) the dreaded "top RPI conference" selection process.
Hopefully we will see an 8 team playoff & ND in the ACC in the future.
Yeah, but any path that allows more than one team per conference is likely to have a loophole that ND can exploit. ND isn't joining anyone until they have to. Without ND, we have to have ACC teams break trends and show up if we have any chance of staying within spitting range of the big boys in media rights dollars.
