I know. Which sucks, because the ACC is waiting on something and nobody has a clue as to what that something is- nd, texas, big east, big 12, what kind of pizza marinate will order for lunch.

Your vague guesses are probably accurate even if not certain. The moves have been made that started the ball rolling. Now other things have to take place before further actions take place. Anything is possible, from one more team to the SEC and everything stops on the one hand to the PAC and ACC pulling a trigger on a 16 conference team. And who knows what is going on at the B1G. They may feel they are all set or they may be evaluating things and in 20 minutes it is announced UConn and Rutgers have been invited to join the B1G.

This will all end soon enough and we'll have time to catch our collective breaths.

I can't see the sec standing pat at 13 that's a logistical problem long term. You have to wonder if Missourigts invited or Egypt is revisited if mu gets a b1g invite.

The ACC is waiting on the Leprechauns. Colin Cowherd was talking throughout his ESPN Radio program today that if the superconferences go into effect, no one will want to schedule the Domers. If the Pac-16 stays with 9 conference games, USC & Stanfors will want 2 guaranteed OOC homegame patsies every year as their conference schedules will bee too tough. Ditto with Michigan, Michigan State, & Purdue. If that's the case, scheduling ND will go by the boards unless ND joins the B1G.

Written application=acceptance. This follows a verbal "application" that sounds like, "If we file a written application would we be accepted"? Response="Sure, we'll announce it on Sunday," or "Don't bother, your academics suck."

I have trouble thinking that ND will a problem scheduling. If the "pod" model becomes standard, teams will not have a greater in-conference burden then they do now. ND usually plays 10 BCS opponents and 2 service academies. Some years they play 1-2 non BCS or service academy opponents. Their BCS opponents are weighted in the Big10, Pac-12, ACC and Big East. I fail to see how this would drastically change.
