If Notre Dame joins a conference, they should be a full time member and play 8 conference games just like everyone else. They aren't as special as they think they are.
Notre Dame has not done anything in sports since before I was born almost. I was in pampers when they won with Coach Holtz. What is it about that school that makes them so special to everyone else? I dont hold them in high regard at all except for the fact they are a Christian university.
It makes sense to go from 10 to 12 teams, but not 13. So if ND is the key, and FSU is the 2nd most desirable, where does that leave Clemson? Clemson only gets a Big 12 invite if the conference wants to go to 14 (or come up with 3 more to get to 16). But given the turmoil they have already had, I would think it unwise to add 8 new teams (the 2 new ones on board for next year and then the 6 it would take to get to 16) in such a short time frame. I bet Texas would not support that, since it might weaken its control on the conference.

Why do the conferences allow teams to play some sports in their conference and not all sports? For example, Notre Dame plays Big East basketball but not Football. The Big East has football and I think Notre Dame should be required to play Big East football because they benefit from conference play in getting a seed into March Madness. Why are teams allowed to to do this? Is it a conference thing? I know some conferences don't offer all sports but to participate in a conference a school should at least play all possible sports in that conference. The schools can choose a secondary conference to cover sports not offered in the primary conference but if only in one conference then they should play all sports offered by that conference.
Side note, the only other school I know that thinks as highly of their football program as Notre Dame is Tater U.
