"Had lunch with a former Professor who is now a full professor at ND and on the Athletics council. Said that the Irish would be making a move for full conference affiliation in the next 6 to 9 months. Told me that if Swofford doesn't screw it up, ND prefers ACC for Academics, geographic fit, possible football dominance, men's and women's basketball, and baseball. Sure hope Swofford gets credible help with this, since this could move us as a conference back into a major player in all aformentioned sports."
