So, which two teams do you want? If I could get any two that I want, they would be PSU and Navy.

Not happening. It will be status quo going forward for both ND and the ACC through 2036. Those deals are all done.

There is no chance ND will join the Big East. Absent a P4 champs only playoff setup, there is little chance that ND football will join the ACC.

Be careful trying to soften up your schedule you don't make it too soft and get TCU'd...lol

ND will not join a football conference unless and until the playoffs are legally mandated as P4 conference champs only.

Jack Swarbrick is on record saying this. Otherwise, it will be the status quo for ND going forward.

ND is good with where it now sits regarding the ACC, its schedules and the playoffs.

ND has known about the playoff implications as an independent for several years. Its answer is to try to make its schedule harder, not easier as Kelly suggests.

Here is what Swarbrick said just last July about ND football schedules in the playoff era:

"On scheduling at large, Swarbrick appears content with Notre Dame’s slates when married to the College Football Playoff contract that runs through 2025. The way Swarbrick sees it, Notre Dame needs a data point against at least four of the five Power 5 conferences if it’s going to make the field without a perfect regular season.


“We want markers against the major conferences,” Swarbrick said. “We’ll always have a Pac-12 marker, we’ll have two every year. More often than not we’ll have a Big Ten marker. We’ll always have an ACC marker.

"The focus was trying to build some SEC markers into the schedule with A&M, Georgia and Arkansas. We’ve been able to do that.”


https://247sports.com/college/notre-dame...s-74898435


He also said this last July:


"There will be years where not having a conference championship works against us. We understand that, we factor it into our calculus. But, given the schedules we’re building, I’ll be very comfortable arguing most years that our 12 games compare favorably with everybody else’s 13. When you say a 13-game schedule is superior to our 12-game schedule, you have to compare all the games. We’re building schedules that I think will stand up to that comparison well. They’ll be very tough to navigate. No one will ever accuse us of backing in with the schedules we’ve built for the future."


https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/co...467734001/


So, again, Brian Kelly has no say or authority over football independence or scheduling. He does not speak for the university on those issues, Jack Swarbrick does.

I would not get too worked up over anything Kelly says on this subject.

I think 2024 will be when this all plays out. Texas and ND has been the holy grail for Swofford. Not that I think it will happen but that appears to be the best hope is ND to join if Texas joins the ACC. I think OU and OSU to SEC and Texas and ND to the ACC would be great incredible. SEC gets Bedlam and TX plays OU, OK ST and Tx AM every three years as part of ACC/SEC rivalry weekend. Just have a feeling B10 will not allow this to happen.
