Commissioner works for the Presidents. Think about those five schools. Do you think any of them consider us equal to them, or want to help us be?
Same as BYU and PAC 12 - taking their money and filling a need is quite different from letting them in the club. As for “casual alliance”vs ND formal alliance - it doesn’t require any of them to play us, just gives them a P5 game close by if they want to schedule it. I think we already have seen the ACC teams readily embrace playing us as a G5 with little upside for them - they have plenty of FCS and G5 games in the region they can schedule home games and 2-for 1. What tHey don’t have is a nearby P5 out of conference opponent that isn’t in the SEC. NC State, Duke, Wake,UVA, VT. BC is a natural fit/rivalry to play yearly the further schools also would do an occasional home and home if they wanted 2 P5 non con games on their schedule.
