A good statement to make with this coming out not long after (although it belongs more in the Big Ten discussion than here), covering the "peril" the last remaining regular rivalry Notre Dame has with a Big Ten school.

This is the new reality of working with Notre Dame. If *you* want to work with the Irish regularly, you're doing so on their time. Granted, it's not like the B1G is all that lenient on scheduling, either (you're theirs from October through November), but the reality of B1G-PAC's demise is that these two PAC schools would rather work with the Irish and their "quirky calendar" than work with their ten other conference-mates and midwestern equivalents.

The PAC's need for nine ended when they took Colorado and Utah, ending round-robin. Further expansion for the PAC, which is apparently a no-go without Texas, might necessitate that number, but at 12? They're the pioneers...they're the only ones doing it, and they're the ones stumped by it.

Is anything stopping the PAC, outside of the two California private schools, from designating BYU as their "independent major" of choice? Apparently, BYU isn't in the majors crowd to SEC and ACC schools...seems like both sides of the PAC-BYU relationship could stand to gain from such a rub. BYU's only getting five FBS home games it looks like so far...maybe someone elevating the Cougars' value could help BYU out a bit, as well as bolster PAC scheduling?

The way that articles is written, Hollis is all in for scheduling Notre Dame when he can. If Delany still has hopes of luring Notre Dame, Michigan State isn't helping.
Forking out $250,000 to cancel a return game to South Florida in order to schedule Arizona State sounds like waste, but maybe they see it as a profitable opportunity. What happened with all those desires to find Florida recruits?

Do you think MSU's being flexible? Seven home games and the nine-game conference schedule is one thing, Hollis is not a fan of the 1-1-1 model ND would prefer:

Quote:
For MSU, the desire to keep the Notre Dame series alive will mean at least one neutral-site event and likely a big payday, but Hollis doesn't want it to become a habit.

"A game in East Lansing means a lot to a lot of people," he said. "There's employees, there's suite holders, there's ticket holders, there's the town, the hotels. It's a bigger thing to think about than just financial return to the athletic department."


Let Hollis champion the local economy of East Lansing with that view. I'm sure replacing the Irish with Sun Belt, MAC, and FCS fare will be totally epic and bring life and prosperity back to the Rust Belt. Totally awesome to see where the students are in that, too.

I saw this floating around various ND boards that cover ND's model. The three schools that stay on the schedule are ones who are flexible with ND's "constraints." From the above, I think that's why MSU (as well as Michigan and Purdue) fell off. The Big Ten schools are flexible...for the months of August and September. ND "needs" a little more than that (I thought ND gave the ACC the dates they were available, as it appears ND is giving the ACC some of that Aug/Sept time, too). I'm not certain those three are willing to be part of the Shamrock Series gimmick, but that's just another imposition Notre Dame expects others to yield to. Notre Dame gets to play the victim again, saying "nuh uh, we don't get seven home games" when they control the ticket flow and get the home designation for that game.

B1G-PAC mattered more to the Big Ten than being in Florida does, apparently. On one hand, it's a better money game...ASU will travel, and MSU will come out to see this game. But, Florida is where you want to be seen, and you can do worse than USF.

As a Pac-10 Alum, I would suggest that there are options to splitting the old "Pac 8" or "Pac 10" schools equitably and with maximum appeal.

18 teams (the 12 they have plus whoever)

Arizona
UCLA
California
Oregon
Washington

in one half and

Arizona State
USC
Stanford
Oregon State
Washington State

in the other half, with the additional 6 teams split equitably. (Utah, Colorado, etc)

That is 7 games. Add their natural rivals, who are all in the opposite conferences puts you at 8 conference games. You could add one at random if you prefer a 9 game conference schedule.

It seems so strange to me that the PAC 12 wants to have games starting at 11 am PAC time instead of primetime games. That is the opposite of what every east coast conference is trying to do. They all want primetime games, not noon games. You can see this by how many conferences are willing to play games through the week on Tuesday and Thursday nights just to get games on TV in primetime.
