first no new news yet on UNA and OVC but from a source they loved the area and stadium which can be expanded if the money is there.
second why would the ACC want Norte Damage unless we are talking about all sports including football.
Same reason the Big East wanted Notre Dame. They bring lots of eyeballs for hoops, quality athletics across the board, solid academic rep. But for the ACC, yes, the plan is to get Notre Dame for all sports. The initial talks were along the lines of:
"NS, look, if the Big East folds due to members leaving and you feel the need to join an all-sports conference if you're only option is the A10 2.0 without any BCS schools (or a waterdown Big East that is more like CUSA) then consider us. You're other options are Big 12 (unstable), Big Ten (have to lose NBC contract, likely lose every year with so many better football programs) or us, the ACC. With us, you'll get even more northeast market exposure due to BC, Pitt, Syracuse and likely Uconn or Rutgers to join with you...you'll get to keep your NBC contract for the time being and then roll it into a new mega contract that would be superior to that one...you'd have a foothold in the recruit-rich south...and we'd be able to create a schedule so that every year you get to play the northern schools you prefer such as BC, Pitt, syracuse and the 4th we add...Miami too...and then 2 games against the other division member like Maryland or UVA and then another against an ACC school. Still have your 3 spots for OOC games like USC, Navy, etc."
