Lots of conferences have failed over the years, and not all of them included partial members. If a league with only full membership has failed in the past, does that mean that the full membership template does not work?
My problem with people opposed to partial membership is that their positions are based on conclusory statements and few facts. I'd love to have the Irish as full members, but I'd also love to have them as partial member with 6-7 guaranteed ACC OOC games every year.
