millerx Posted November 24, 2009 Share Posted November 24, 2009 Okay, so maybe there were some reasons from both sides in the past as to why ND didn't join the Big 10 (11)... but if ever there was time to make it happen, now is it. Let's face it, they both need each other right now. Both are tremulously suffering. The Big 10 conference has lost it's legitimacy as a top conference and Notre Dame has now gone almost an entire generation without kids knowing what it was like to have this storied program continually be among the ranks of the USC's, Alabama's, Michigan's/OSU's of the nation. With this one simple move, the Big 10 would be able to join the ranks of the conferences that have passed them by, and add a Championship Game. It would add to the SOS for all the teams, and it would draw better TV coverage. ND would finally get respectability for playing top tier teams (vs. what they have now), ties to bowl bids, and a share in the overall bowl money. IMHO, this would be a huge face lift for both... What say you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
