This is per a source close to this
-Notre Dame to the ACC in Olympic Sports. -Like they play 5-6 games a year vs ACC teams.
-This will occur in 2014
-Extra 1 million per school (keep in mind this is for partial membership not full)
-No football yet
-$50 million dollar exit fee will now be imposed.

Exit fee is actually 3 times the annual operating budget. The current exit fee is $50 million but obviously that number will change depending on the annual operating budget.
Can't wait to hear TuxedoYoda's and the Dude's thoughts on what this means for Clemson's and FSU's move to the Big12.
Swofford wins again.
Corey you can't honestly believe this only adds $1 million per team.
I certainly don't.

Somehow i hate the acc even more now. Can we just go indy?

Horrible idea. The ACC just got more attractive with this move - and that's not debatable.
Current exit fee is not $50 million. It will now be raised to $50 million with this addition.
Glad to see someone here can let go of the past and see the future.
I do not understand how some can say this isn't a good move for the ACC. It most assuredly is.
While i'm not serious about going indy(beacause of $ issues). We are still in a lame conference. As far as Notre Dame making us more attractive...how did that work out for the Big East?
It's not a good move - its a great move.
I would rather be in the ACC with ND than in the B12. That's a no brainer.
Really? The Big East? That's your argument/comparison?
Did the Big East have top 10 Clemson & FSU teams? How about 3 top 13 teams?
Outstanding move by the ACC.
Props to Swofford for pulling it off
the ACC is significantly better than the big east was post-miami/VT/BC. the big east was one second-tier program (WVU) and a bunch of mid-majors.
the ACC is not an elite football conference but it is well above the big east.

Notre Dame will be more inclined to join the ACC than the Big East. Much better fit on multiple fronts: academics, Clemson/FSU, connection to their northeast fanbase.
Getting Notre Dame to sign for football too will tip the scales here.
Far as 1 mil extra per year per team. ACC getting 13-20 mil in a sliding scale now. How NBC plays in this will matter too for money reasons.
We arent considered a top program nationaly. Sorry but we aren't. FSU has been down. Our conference sucks man. Thats just how it is. What were those attendance figures from the conf. championship game between BC and Va tech again? I could go on but I've been through this before because I've come to a point where I'm at peace with being in a weak conference.
What do you consider a top conference?
We are one of the 5 big boys. We are not the SEC. Big whoop. Nobody else is either. We're better right now than the Big 10. Probably better than the Pac 12. I'd argue, with ND, we are better than the Big 12, but at the very least, we are equal.
This whoa is us mentality is for pussies.
This is a great day for the ACC and puts it in prime position to become much stronger and wealthier long term.
We are one of the top 5, you are correct. But thats relative. We are nowhere near the SEC, Big ten, Pac-12. Not even close. And in a few years the Big 12 will be in the distance as well. Like i said, I'm at a point where I'm ok with that.
congratulations on thinking like a sheep, just like ESPN wants you to. "top program" on the field is different from a "top program" as far as revenue generation/value. in that realm, FSU, UNC, and Duke are tier 1 programs across all sports. miami, clemson, vt, gt, probably a few others are firmly in the second tier. on-field results don't mean jack shit in this realm--that's why boise state is worthless, and notre dame is worth more than any other program.
could ACC football be better on the field? of course (although its shittiness is severely overstated thanks to ESPN-conference-rah-rah groupthink). is it the 5th most valuable conference right now? yes (and it will stay that way unless ND joins in full). we all want to be the best, that's the goal. we want to be more competitive. however, the dropoff from 5 to 6 is a LOT more than the drop from 4th to 5th. the ACC, like clemson, is a HAVE, not a have-not. neither of those things is changing any time soon.
You can be ok with incorrect data all you want. The Big 10 is shit this year. T-total shit. Ask TimMatty. He keeps up with it as close as anyone. The Pac 12 is top heavy. The Big 12 is has not left anyone.
Again, I don't know you, but your defeatist attitude regarding our program and conference is gay.
he's just an ESPN sheep. 10 years ago, before ESPN saw the revenue potential in creating some kind of "clash of the conferences" mentality among the sheep fans, nobody gave a shit about conference affiliation. but, like most things, ESPN is making billions by contriving intraconference rivalries that appeal to the lowest common denominator among sports fans.
The B10 has tOSU & Michigan...that's it. Wiscy lost to a mediocre Oregon State, and Nebraska lost to UCLA - who the jury is still out on. Don't try and sell me Sparty either - I'm not buying. Conference is very mediocre.
Keep calling people sheep if it makes you feel better becasue when it comes to $ we(acc) are getting smoked. And to shortbus: yes the big ten is shit this year(for now, and maybe all year who knows). But overall they just are a better conference. I don't know, just look at our schedule over the past few years. Whatever, this is an old argument.
Poor wording on my part. What I meant was that the new exit fee, which is 3 times the annual operating budget, would currently be $50 million dollars but in future years, as annual operating budgets increase, the exit fee will increase as well.
Auburn is down(this year) too. would you rather have them or BC on your schedule? And no this isn't about being in the sec.
BC is garbage...so what's that supposed to prove?
