It absolutely makes sense if it ensures that Notre Dame will be on board...which would lead to a better TV deal that ultimately leads to more money for the ACC.
I don't know if it plays out like that, but you can't say there is no way the ACC should give Notre Dame an equal cut. Especially if conceding money to Notre Dame results in an overall higher financial benefit to the ACC relative to its earning potential with partners other than Notre Dame.
Also, contracting with someone other than Notre Dame would give another conference an extra tie-in to the major 6 bowls, which means more money for that conference. Why enrich a competitor conference?

It's Notre Dame ppl you put their name on anything the value goes up. If the game was linked to them NBC would join in on the fight for the tv rights which would increase the value of those rights. It's obvious there is a lack of respect for Notre Dame on this board and they probably deserve it but don't ignore there value as a bowl partner. And being affiliated with them in a bowl game is a link that may help if they ever decided to join a conference. But what solves everything is winning hard to sell a losing product
Lol. When was the last time the OB was packed?
This effort is still far behind the big 4
ACC champion vs 8-4 or 7-5 Notre Dame, what does that say?
It says millions of viewers - which means big ratings. You guys also realize that 1pm on NY's Day is a prime slot, right?

You guys realize that the goal is not to play in the Orange Bowl - or for any other conference champion to play in their respective bowl tie-in. The goal is to make the playoffs. The tie-ins are essentially for the runner-up; or a safety net for the 1 of the 5 conference champs that get left out of the playoffs.
Exactly. Non-playoff postseason barely matters. It's all about the money at that point. Nore Dame will bring the most money.
Did we even investigate trying to pick up the sugar bowl instead?
Stuck at 1:00 on new years day... I bet the rose bowl and champions bowl are at 4:00 and 8:00...
Granted, it is better than being left out, but still shows us as second tier. I wonder how th money will compare to the champions bowl?
1 pm on NYD is not a prime time slot, half the country will still be recovering from the night before while that games being played.
Sorry, but just because you say it's not doesn't make it so. 1pm on NYD was always a prime time game when the big bowls were played on NYD prior to TV spreading them out. Seeing how all the games will be back on NYE & NYD, it most certainly is.
Lol at people who think moving the date to Jan 1st isn't a great thing. If yall remember, the OB raping this year took place on a Wednesday, January 4th. Some people I know couldn't get that many days off from work so they couldn't travel down to Miami for the game. But they all said if the game was on new years day or new years eve, they could have made the trip.
I know this does not represent everyone, but I know about 10 people that would have gone if the date would have been better.
Totally disagree... 1:00 was never the big NY bowl time. Orange was always at night. Sugar was late afternoon. Fiesta was at night. Rose was not early. Early bowl games were Citrus, Hall of Fame, etc...
It won't draw the numbers it would later in the day because people will be recovering, Viewing parties will be afternoon and late day.
I am not saying we shouldn't be happy to have the tie-in, but we should not claim it is 'prime time' or equal to the late games.
A bigger question to me is why did we rush to the OB? Did we even ask the Sugar Bowl if they would be interested?
Exactly, you can spin it all you like, but its going to be on at 10 am on the west coast. The ratings will continue to slip and in years when it'd not involved with the playoffs it'll be the new Gator Bowl.
Lots of undeducated butt hurt people ITT.
I am not uneducated or butt hurt, but I am smart enough to know that 1:00 on NYD is not equivalent to 4:00 or 8:00. I was worried we were going to get left out all together, so I am happy we got some piece of the pie, but there is no logical way you can equate this with the Big12/SEC game or the Rose Bowl. If the ACC champ is any good, they won't be in the orange bowl unless it is a semifinal that year. Does the OB have to take an ACC team if the champ is in a semifinal?
Let's see what the revenue looks like before passing final judgement. I see no way it is equal since the Big12/SEC control their game.
The media rights are going to be taken to the market so it's not like espn or whoever dictated this. Do you honestly think the Orange Bowl committee or president or whoever said hey let's pick a time slot that will put us 3rd rate? They could have picked whatever time they wanted and picked 1pm.
Any thoughts from y'all on which BCS bowl gets the most to least not including the playoff games.

Partnering with Notre Dame will do just that with regards to money.
Have to see more on details on the revenue split. On its face this doesn't strike me as anything that huge.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

The ACC controls the marketing of the game meaning that the ACC rep probably gets more than the ND/At Large.
It's a huge win for the ACC
Its better than nothing I guess but I don't see it as some big win.
The semifinals are the top 4. How do you guarantee the ACC a spot? You have to qualify?
If the Orange Bowl isn't one of the playoff games in a given year, and the ACC doesn't have a team qualify for the playoffs, then they got to the Orange Bowl.
If the Orange Bowl is a playoff game, yet the ACC doesn't have a playoff team, the ACC champ will go to the Rose or Sugar or whatever isn't in the playoff rotation that year.
How can people not see this as a great thing for the ACC?
To take it a step further, should the Orange Bowl not be in the playoff rotation and an ACC team makes the playoffs, then the Orange Bowl still has to take the next best ACC team.
