Mike T. said ND will soon be announcing BE football games beyond the Pitt series.ND has it in for BC so their games will likely come to BE.ND supports BE in the BCS.This support is critical.ND support is also critical to other BE bowls.TV games with ND once year will help bE tv.No ND has great tv power.While,some fans would leave ND,the AD's of the BE will NOT.
While it's true that Tranghese siad this, Tigershark, I have a hard time figuting out who it is that ND would schedule beyond Pitt & Syracuse, with whom they have long histories. They actively opposed Cincinnati joining BE & weren't much more enthusiastic about Louisville. South Florida? UConn? They wouldn't seem to have much in common with either of these. They have some history with West Virginia & Rutgers is a game that offers something for their alum in NYC.
So, Pitt, Syracuse, & maybe Rutgers. Throw in an occasional West Virginia game. Beyond that, I don't see it. Overall, the new Big East Football is not a group of schools that ND has a lot in common with. Now when BC & Miami were there with Pitt, Syracuse, . . . That was another story
