It really is amazing how you comprehend things. This is similar to how you translate ND FOOTBALL being irrelevant on a national level over the last two decades as being that ND is irrelevant.
No one is saying they should act in our interest. They should be forced to go all in or be on there way because the current situation is not working for the BE. And no one is blaming them. Could they have helped the conference? Absolutely! Will they? Given their desire to remain independant and in control of the revenue from football, probably not. So what do we have to lose by giving them an ultimatum? Nothing. That's not a fantasy that is the reality of the situation and it's about time someone with any kind of weight in the conference has said as much. It won't come from any president or the Commissioner because they have to put on the PC BS in hopes of swaying them to commit. A coach with Geno's stature can get away with it.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!

Yes, ND football is irrelevant, that's why no BCS conference would take their sorry program, especially the Big East. You recognize they could save the big east, but call their football program irrelevant. You're killing me, that's just too funny!!!

Please don't question my comprehension, worry about your own. You actually wrote "nobody is saying ND should act in our interest" but that is exactly the point Geno is making when he said they should join for football, and then worry about their self interest.

If you want to be mad at somebody, be mad at the 8 football school for not splitting away from ND; because kicking them out of the conference was never a realistic outcome for anyone living in the real world.

ND is irrelevant as a football program. As a marketing brand and television attraction they couldn't be more relevant. Everything Geno said is true, and hard to logically dispute. Of course, had ND joined years ago, the Big East may not have pushed Uconn to upgrade. He never said they should act in our best interest. I think his point is why do we allow them to use the Beast at this point when the gain isn't very substantial.

You guys can't be serious. Jeezus....

"ND is irrelevant as a football program"- Really? Then why are they the only independent with a network contract, and a special rule including them in the BCS bowl system?

"As a marketing brand and television attraction they couldn't be more relevant". Convenient how you separate the two, as if they don't have anything to do with eachother. Dumb and intellectually dishonest. But convenient. I suppose people tune into NBC to watch the Notre Dame Marketing Brand battle it out with the USC Compliance Officers?

"Why do we allow them to use the Beast at this point when the gain isn't very substantial". So as a marketing brand and television attraction they couldn't be more relevant, but the gain for the big east isn't very substantial. Are you kidding? You're trying to act as if they aren't important and don't bring value, while arguing that they are important and bring value.

Lastly...

"He never said they should act in our best interest."

Yes. He. Did.

"But join us in football and then look out for your best interest," Auriemma said.

Join us in football, because it's in our best interest, and then look out for your best interest.

In a 16 team league, someone has to go 3-13. They are doing there part. ND isn't pulling as hard as they could for the BE and people resent it. Perhaps the relationship has just run its course.

If ND has assured the BBs it will stick with them no matter what happens to FB then you can justify them staying. If not, why keep them around. Perhaps that's what the reported anger of the BB schools.toward ND was about. They wouldn't answer?

At some point you need to know who's on board with you.

I don't care what whether we split or not. But blaming ND for our situation, and acting as if they don't bring any value, is dumb. With all due respect to the special needs kids and their families I don't know any other way to explain how "developmentally disabled" those two ideas are.

Then why are they the only independent with a network contract, and a special rule including them in the BCS bowl system?Because they happen to have a name brand that networks are willing to pay for, that may have something to due with the massive alumni and fanbase they have. The first NBC contract they signed was in the eighties when they still fielded a relevant (that's competitively relevant) team.
Has their on field performance over the last two decades warranted that contract? Maybe only in your mind and the dimwits at NBC Sports who keep paying for it. As we are all learning it's about eyeballs and market share so they can care less about the product on the field anyway.
"As a marketing brand and television attraction they couldn't be more relevant". Convenient how you separate the two, as if they don't have anything to do with eachother. Dumb and intellectually dishonest. But convenient. I suppose people tune into NBC to watch the Notre Dame Marketing Brand battle it out with the USC Compliance Officers? Funny the game is being played tomorrow and outside of their fanbases the whole football world could give a rats ass, talking heads across the country are are saying the exact same thing, this isn't news to anyone (except apparently you) that ND football has damn near fallen off the map. They continue to make money off of a reputation earned generations ago, and will more than likely continue to.

"Why do we allow them to use the Beast at this point when the gain isn't very substantial". So as a marketing brand and television attraction they couldn't be more relevant, but the gain for the big east isn't very substantial. The marketing and branding of their football is where their value is as you clearly admit, so tell me genius how much of that is substantially shared with the BE? How much of that independant contract is for BB or Baseball or any other sport? Oh right its only for football, so really the sports that do belong to the BE really aren't that much of a value now are they?Are you kidding? You're trying to act as if they aren't important and don't bring value, while arguing that they are important and bring value. No the football clearly does bring value thats why everyone is wanting them to join, get it. But if they are not willing to bring that value to the BE then we are saying they should take their other sports somewhere else because they don't bring the value the BE needs. It is that very branding that could help the conference that you claim benefits the BE but yet none of that is actually in the BE.

Lastly...

"He never said they should act in our best interest."

Yes. He. Did.

"But join us in football and then look out for your best interest," Auriemma said. No, he said join us for football, then think of your interests

Join us in football, because it's in our best interest, and then look out for your best interest.
Actually its in the interest of the entire BE conference which they happen to be a partial member of, taking full advantage of the benefits that come with it, now its time for the recipricol.

For someone who claims not to be a domer you sure have your panties in bunch from people who only want the best for our conference. It's okay to have different views no matter how naive we think of them (that's your views and mine). And I'm not worried about your comprehension skills you clearly demonstrate the need for them to be developed as do your social graces when the only analogy that comes to mind is one that mocks the mentally handicapped.

oh my god no one is blaming them, we want them to be a full member of our conference, do you get that???? People are tired of the half in model, it doesn't work for one half of the business partnership, come in fully or go somewhere else, see how it works out for them.

Yes, people are blaming them. I didn't say you, or everyone, but people are blaming them. You choose to not to see what's right in front of your eyes. Like the quote from Geno. "Join in football, THEN look out for your best interest." That is obviously an admission that joining is more about the Big East being saved rather than ND's situation being improved. Unless you think they are really better off joining the Big East than being an independent.

I never said you couldn't be tired of it, and I never said anyone should be happy about it. I said it's stupid to blame ND for taking a deal offered to them, it's stupid to act like they aren't relevant just because they lost some football games when you readily admit they can save the conference, it's stupid to try and pretend there's a difference between football relevancy and marketing relevancy, it's stupid to pretend their basketball program doesn't bring value to the contract (ever watch UConn/ND on CBS the past few years?), and it's stupid to expect them to act in our best interest, which is what you're doing when you say or agree with "Join in football, then look out for your best interest."

Those ideas are so mentally handicapped. Does that PC nonsense make you feel better?

Yes. I am blaming ND and the BE leaders for allowing this relationship to exist in its current state. It was never appropriate, an unwise strategy that failed.

The whole arguement is about saving the conference, yet you don't get that. The arrangement doesn't work for the current situation that the BE is in. Sorry but that is a weak attempt by bringing up ND playing UConn on CBS in basketball. I would watch UConn play anybody on CBS, we are the draw there not ND, that is why when they do beat us people make a big deal about it, similar to when we beat them in football. Is that too complex for you, you clearly being a Domer might believe that people are watching for ND but just another example of the rediculousness of your position. ND's other sports have benefitted tremendously from being in the BE, sadly the football portion of the BE cannot say the same for it's arrangement with ND, where ND can take Bowl games from BE teams that qualify but yet give nothing back to the conference.
You fail to see this point or address it, I've asked several times, I'll go once more. What benefit does our current association with ND bring to the BE? We do not have the luxury to wait them out anymore, if we are to survive as a conference we need them on board. If they are unwilling to do that then they need to be cut loose across the board. With them gone we will have actually a better situation only in the respect that we will not have teams passed over once every four years for bowl game for a ND team that is not giving anything back to the conference that they take the spot from.
The failure of the conference has nothing to do with ND but in the current situation the past arrangement does not help they are more than welcome to come aboard but if they're not willing then they need to go entirely.

I didn't say they they brought no value. I don't think they bring enough value for the current arrangement. We get a soild men's BB program and the Champs Sports Bowl at the cost of the stablity of the conference. If you paid $1000 for a hamburger, you would be getting value for your $$, but not $1000 in value. ND is our $1000 hamburger because, in all league matters there are not two competing factions, there are three. In their own self interest in preserving the status quo, ND has mostly sided with BB. Today, they are against the interests of both FB and BB, if they allow the BE to disband FB and will seek other BB affiliation. I'll say it again, the relationship has run it's course and in hindsight was bad for the BE FB. It is now bad for BE BB. The BB schools should realize this and ask them to join for all sports or move along in the interests of the basketbal schools. They do not share the goals of the BE conference. I don't see how they could ever be a trusted partner. Time for them to be told, "Thanks, but we need to move on."

You're right, when Marquette is playing ND on CBS this year, Marquette is the draw, not ND. ND is on tv almost as much as any other school in the conference, and more than traditional teams like Nova. Yet you believe they aren't a draw. That's fine, you're entitled to your opinion, it's wrong, but you're entitled to believe that. If ND has nothing to do with our games being on CBS, then why aren't the USF games on CBS? Or DePaul? or Rutgers? etc, etc.

The basketball schools aren't kicking them out, I don't know why that is difficult for you to understand. The options are for the football schools to split, or continue the relationship, because nobody is getting kicked out. I've already said I'm fine if we split, but don't think our bowl arrangements will improve without ND, they won't. You claim they don't give anything back, but we wouldn't have had the Gator or Champs without them, and the basketball contract wouldn't be as high without them. These are facts, not opinions. So when you claim they don't bring anything to the table, you're wrong. You want them gone, so you ignore the value they add, but they do add value. Sure, it doesn't make us stable, but if you think the conference will be more stable without ND, then you don't understand at all what is behind conference re-alignment. The conference isn't suffering because the basketball schools have different goals, the conference is suffering because some of the football teams had better options and chose to excercise them.

I've been telling you what the association brings to the conference this entire thread, but you choose not to see what's right in front of your eyes.

I get that people want rid of them, I've said that repeatedly. But just because you want them gone, doesn't mean they don't bring anything to the association. If they didn't, the relationship would have been over with years ago. It's not hard to understand that.

I don't think I said you did.

I was laughing at the people calling them parasites. As if they don't help the big east, and are responsible for killing it. That's ridiculous.

The basketball schools are not going to do that, the writing is on the wall, the conference is just about dead, and the basketball schools would be more than happy to continue the relationship with ND because of the value they bring to the conference.

We either 1) split, rebuild, and hope it works out, or 2) continue the relationship, rebuild, and hope it works. But ND isn't getting kicked out because it's not in the best interest of the basketball schools. They lost Pitt, lost Cuse, could lose WVU, Louisville and/or UConn. They need ND badly to help with the TV contract if a split occurs or the football side continues to lose members.

I'm a domer? LMAO. Why? Because I have common damn sense?

I've been a UConn fan my entire life. I've been to every bowl game we played in, including spending over 30 hours in the car to get to two of them. Spent another 48 hours in the car to get to Michigan and Notre Dame and back for those games. I'm still paying off the debt from my trip to the Fiesta Bowl. And I bought tickets through UConn when others I know bought in the secondary market, spent 1/3rd of what I did, and sat 40 rows closer in much better seats.

Just because I am able to use my head instead of my heart when it comes to a conversation on ND and their relationship with the Big East doesn't make me a domer. My heart says we should kick them out. My head says that isn't happening. You should start thinking and stop feeling, and then maybe you'll understand my point.

I took a second today after going to sit back and think about the following: What would be the make-up of the Big East if all the football schools that are left got swallowed up by another conference. It leaves a good quality basketball/olympic sports league that if schools like Butler and Xavier were added can hold their own against the Big Boys in tournament play. I can see ND being VERY happy being a member of a conference like this. I can see this happening before they join a conference for all sports.

As long as they have the opportunity to play for a national championship or in a BCS bowl as an independent that is exactly what they would do.

Right now they have a BCS tie-in that I don't see them losing due to their NBC contract.

Seriously? You're giving them credit for the CBS deal for basketball? They play one game on CBS - we happen to be on twice neither of which is against ND. The BE deal with CBS was established before ND joined up in 1995. You know that your arguement is very weak on this, if you seriously ND . BTW here's the breakdown for TV for basketball;
ND - 31 games
6 - BE Network
16 - ESPN channels (five games in an established early season tourney)
1 - CBS
1 - Mid Atlantic Network
7 - no TV coverage

UConn - 30 Games
3 - HDNet/VS (new early season tourney)
2 - CBS
12 - ESPN channels
13 - SNY
0 - no TV coverage

But this is about football. I said if they don't want to join in football then we should get rid of them entirely and I stand by that, I don't want to get rid of them for the sake of it. I said it several times I want them on board, so has everyone else, but ND doesn't want to, so they can take their "all other sports" and go play somewhere else. We can find an all sports member that can bring as much as they do in "all other sports" but actually contribute to the football side. Granted they won't have the name cache that ND has but that name is not doing anything for us on the football side. I can think of UCF as a really great candidate in that regard. They have a huge enrollment, 56,000 they are in the no. 19 tv market they bring competitive "all other sports" and loads of pontential from a football standpoint, and last I checked the Champs Bowl is located pretty close to them.

Did you happen to notice that you are the only one defending an old agreement that doesn't work for the conference anymore? This isn't about basketball or any other sport, its about football. Did I happen to mention this is about football?

BTW the Gator was a 50% deal meaning they could take the bowl 2 of every 4 years, see how that works? The current deal is 25% meaning they could take the bowl 1 of every 4 years.

Now class do you see what happened when the new deal for the Champs Bowl was put in place? That's right the amount that school ND could take away from Conference BE was reduced by half! Now if said school has only a 25% stake in the bowl game do you think its a credible statement to say that the conference in question would never have had that bowl game without said school? Just what I was thinking class!

All you do is rant and rave, and then put words in my mouth to argue with.

I'm not defending the agreement, I'm laughing at the people delusional enough to blame ND instead of looking in the mirror. None of your bitching and moaning about ND, or me, disproves the following.

1) Notre Dame adds value to the basketball contract, much more than programs like DePaul, USF, Rutgers, Providence, Seton Hall, and some others. The fact they are on TV 30 times, and more than a school like Villanova is evidence of that. That our games vs them were on CBS the past few years is more evidence, not less. If you think UConn was the only reason, and ND had nothing to do with it, explain why EACH of our games vs. USF, Depaul, Seton Hall, Rutgers, etc, etc, haven't been on CBS or espn/espn2 the past few years. Or explain why ND vs. Marquette is on CBS this year. I'm not saying UConn has nothing to do with it, I'm saying it's delusional to pretend ND has no impact either.

2) Notre Dame isn't to blame for our current situation, the lack of tradition, prestige, and large fanbases; combined with better options for some of the members are the reasons we're here now. ND said they wouldn't join, didn't join, and we brought them on anyway. Blaming them for our willingness to bend to their conditions is delusional.

3) Notre Dame isn't going to join for football because it's not in their best interest. If you want to pretend this isn't true because their president hasn't held a press conference announcing it, fine, pretend away, but know that you're wrong. If joining the Big East was in their best interest, they would have joined years ago. Asking them to join now that Pitt/Quse are leaving and they should be good christians (looking at you Geno), is akin to asking UConn to join the MAC to help legitimize UMass' upgrade because we should be good neighbors. Asking them to "join, then look out for [their] best interest" is begging and pathetic, and I expect better from Geno.

4) Notre Dame provides stability for the basketball schools and they are not kicking them out. If the football schools split, they lose the best of the rest of the basketball programs except for Georgetown, Nova, and Notre Dame. If kicking Notre Dame out helped stabilize the conference, the basketball schools would agree to it. ND is the head of the expansion committee, do you really think that is an accident and the basketball schools don't want to stay associated with ND because they don't add any value?

If you're not going to disprove those points (and you can't) then anything else you post is a waste of your time.[/quote][/quote]

I don't believe the contract has anything to do with it. The BCS is made up of a bunch of representatives from the schools, all with competing interests, but similar goals. They aren't likely to be the ones who push ND into a corner out of fear that their conference would lose out and be harmed.

Their tie-in is based on performance, just like the conferences. They have to meet certain requirements or be granted some sort of waiver, which they'll get if they need.

a) ND brings nothing to the table and should have been kicked out a long time ago.

b) They are not the reason the Big East is in the situation it is in. The 8 football schools did that to themselves.
