clearly ACC is in a position where it has to agree to things that the SEC or BiG would not. no argument there.

Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
Except ND may not have been interested in being an associate member of the Big 10. Of course, it already got what it wanted from that league anyway (about three football games per year).
Schools that have never made the NCAA Tournament — the 2014 edition http://wp.me/plDgR-1WQ

ND's ACC foes: 2014-Home: UNC, UL, Wake; At FSU, SU; 2015-Home: BC, GT; At Clem, Pitt, UVa; 2016-Home: Duke, UM, VT; At: NCSU, SU
Cuse will be the lucky team that gets ND twice in three years.
And both at home to boot.

My guess would be both will be played in NYC.
I know it may surprise people to see that the 2014 ND home game is played in MetLife, which indicates ND will use the ACC deal to fill some of its prime time NBC slots.
LOL we're in the Big East!

Legends, Leaders gone in 2014 sources tell @espn. B1G East: IU, Md, Mich, MSU, OSU, PSU, RU; West: Ill, Iowa, Minn, Neb, NW, PU, Wis
It's brutally tough, but I can't wait to see those teams at Byrd. IU and Purdue were the last decision and IU is a weaker fball program than Purdue, so that's a small silver lining.
Go away, KA!
I know the east looks a lot scarier than the west, but over the past 5 seasons, the east teams have only averaged something like 0.2 wins more per team per season than the west teams (we've done our best to bring that stat down, of course).
Remember that PSU will have ~55 scholarshiped players next year. Numbers will continue to go down the year after that as well.
Yeah, in a particularly strong season finishing 3rd in the division ahead of MSU is plausible. It will obviously be pretty rare for us to finish ahead of OSU and/or Michigan though.
Are those divisions football-only? Because the best five basketball programs are all in the East.
Pretty sure they are football only. The Big Ten doesn't have divisions for hoops right now and I don't think they are changing that.
Divisions in basketball are dumb. I can't imagine the Big Ten wants to join such juggernauts as the Big South, MAC, Ohio Valley, Southern (no hate Spike), and Sun Belt conferences.
It's also worth noting that now that the Big Ten is moving to divisions named East and West, only two conferences in all of NCAA college football have non-geographic division names: the ACC and the New England Football Conference of Division III (divided into the Boyd and Bogan divisions -- it took me longer than I care to admit to figure out that they're named after the conference's first two commissioners).
We are going to dominate the shit out of the East in football
From a Maryland perspective can someone characterize the dysfunction of east coast and mid Atlantic schools from working together. I don't put Maryland into that category because of your long stay in the ACC. However Pitt, Cuse, WV and the rest of the East should of been a bloc. Instead they always seem to be scheming and back stabbing each other for the past 30 years. Penn State tried to organize it but gave up and ultimately got rejected.
Just how hillbillies roll, I s'pose.
I believe the SoCon will not have divisions next season. Of course, whether or not there will still be a SoCon next season is still to be determined...
Interesting read- this is the model I thought the SEC/ESPN would come up with considering their current contract. Mr. SEC wants to hype SEC as much as possible but he misses a valuable point. A partial ownership in the network by all schools should increase in value long term. They will be missing out on that. This will be a heavier lift than than ESPN/SEC will project.

I don't think that's a 2014 home game for Notre Dame, they already get UNC, Louisville, and Wake at home in 2014. I think that is considered a Syracuse "home" game, and will be broadcast on ABC/ESPN.
I thought it was at first, but I see now you are right: both are listed as ND at Syracuse on the ACC's website.
Apparently, both are part of implementing previously scheduled ND games into the ACC agreement. They also included the WF at ND game, but moved the game from 2015 to 2014.
