With Alabama making the playoff ND looks to shift priorities
Looks like ND is farther away from joining the ACC because of the 13th data point reduced status:

From the link:

We thought the 13th [data] point was really important, right? But that doesn't seem to be that important anymore.

"It seems like the goal posts shift and move a little bit as it comes to how you get in, and this schedule is really, really difficult."

RE: With Alabama making the playoff ND looks to shift priorities
13th data point only becomes important when comparing similar teams. The committee didn't think a 2-loss Ohio State team that lost by 31 to Iowa was similar enough to a 1-loss Alabama team that lost its last game of the regular season.

ND has already jimmy rigged it's ACC schedule. However, Notre didn't account for the ACC getting better at football this quickly when they signed the agreement. Richt wasn't at Miami. Fuente wasn't at VT. Dabo was just getting started at Clemson. The ACC is light years better now than it was 5 years ago.

It's hard to imagine how ND could be any further away from joining the ACC in football than they already are.

So ND is going to weaken its schedule. Most likely adding another NBC game? I guess it’s good they care about Bowls and Playoffs.

It sounded more like they want to shift the games around to space out their harder games.

It might not be just a rearrangement. With this comment by Kelly from the link:

” So if you win 'em all, they can't be mad at you. We've got to play our five ACC schools, so you can't have everything."

ACC games are the only ones he committed to playing. I think there might be more on the table than just arranging.

Maybe they should drop Stanford?

I doubt they'd give up Stanford, USC, and Navy. Add in the 5 ACC games that gives them 4 to play with. ND's schedule is already set through 2020. I don't know how much they can do other than........join the ACC.

UCF went undefeated. I wonder if they had played 4 P5 teams and still went undefeated and won their CCG if they would have made the playoffs? If ND went undefeated and played only 7P5 teams would they have made the playoffs?
I think so.
