Notre Dame Apparently Headed To The ACC (For All But Football, Hockey)

Updated with SB Nation link. I guess the idea of playing basketball against the likes of SMU and Houston didn't sit well in South Bend. The first info I saw on this subjecthttp://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8369070/notre-dame-sports-football-hockey-acc came from ESPN's Brett McMurphy, who has a good track record with this sort of thing. While I've been expecting a move like this for some time (based on message board chatter), I didn't quite expect it today. The Fighting Irish will now see a sizable chunk of its football schedule filled with ACC opposition (5 games according to McMurphy). Plus, they'll join fellow ACC rival Boston College in Hockey East. (Note the ACC will need four more teams to sponsor hockey as a conference, a big number, but not too sizable.) The big question is when this move happens, given the Big East's 27-month notice requirement. But, hey, it's not like Notre Dame would have much issue getting past that hurdle financially. Another is if football joins the conference down the road at some point, perhaps when the NBC money runs out.

Notre Dame To Join ACC

Notre Dame is moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference in every sport except football, where the Fighting Irish will maintain their status as an independent.

Boston University Off To The Patriot League For 2013-14

The Wheel O' Conference Realignment has taken yet another turn. The Terriers leave the America East, where it was a charter member.

Conference Realignment For 2013-14

I'm updating this as quickly as I can based on new information. Today, I've moved Charlotte, UTSA, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, and FIU to Conference USA, reducing their soon-to-be former conferences in kind. As for Old Dominion ... well, that's a different story entirely. The Monarchs have yet to commit. When they do, I'll move them, and wait for the next set of dominoes to fall.

The MWCUSA? Mountain West/Conference USA talk merger, The Mtn. expands coverage - Cowboy Altitude

The Road over at Cowboy Altitude (SBNation's Wyoming Cowboys site) has a nice recap of the latest developments in the MWC/CUSA Merger talks. Among the ideas being discussed: 1. Championship game between top team in MWC and CUSA. Winner goes to a BCS Bowl. 2. Moving members to balance the leagues. UTEP could join the Mountain West and be close to New Mexico. Conference USA could focus on the Eastern half of Texas and the Southeast. Not sure this has a big chance of occurring since the Miners seem pretty happy playing so many other Texas schools. 3. Media Partnerships. Both leagues play some of their games on CBS College Sports. The MWC teams also appear on Versus and it's own network The Mtn. A few CUSA games get picked up by ESPN. 4. Scheduling partnerships for out of conference games. Basketball scheduling could be easier with road trips that hit two or three schools at once.
