well, ND non-revs do nothing really to help the ACC
I read what you're getting at but if you ain't all in, I don't want you. If ND is "too good" to bring the only thing they have of value, then I don't want to deal with them. As you put it, if the ACC schools are almost already playing ND that much (I don't think that is true), then ACC schools have nothing to gain by helping out ND. Let them enjoy the BE.

We could insist on ND playing 5-6 ACC teams every year which Notre Dame almost does now.
Multiple competitors screwed, conference revenue likely enhanced, maybe a trip to South Bend every decade: it seems like a winner if you get over the pride factor, but who in the ACC has any pride left?
From this article, it looks like the Irish are setting themselves up for another decade of independence. Let's take what we can get.
