If we drop Duke then just add ND. Wouldn't they rather join a 14 team conference than be the 15th and must be paired with UConn or someone to make it an even 16? I would think that if ND were interested they would be more interested in being 14th.

Filth runs that program and I am not sure BC would be happy. Then again what has BC done? I would prefer Cincy or Rutgers over UCONN. Cincy because ACC would get into OHIO. Rutgers because for some reason I see them as sleeping GIANT. Especially if PSU takes a hit. If Duke would do this then could a Villanova/G'town join also. I guess if this would bring more to the TV money. I mean both as all sports besides football. Sorta a hyrbrid sitaution that possibly works for ALL. One other thing is couldn't DUKE do this? Drop from ACC competition in football. IF Navy is not part of acc deal the DUKE Villanova ARMY NAVY AND BYU form an alliance for football. Plus each would schedule some of the ACC teams to. ESPN/NBC Network will need programming and while those are not marquee matchups it would be as good as COMCAST game at noon between JMU and UMASS. Just throwing things out. IMHO DUKE for football needs to just remove itself from more bodily harm. My goodness UVA loss to them 3 yrs in a row.
