So if this happens ND gets a free BCS bowl every year whether 6-6 or 12-0.
Lmao. Another reason we need to gtfo.
Why wouldn't we go for the Sugar Bowl? It sounded like the we actually could look to switch from the Orange if we wanted to...
I highly doubt ND will get the orange bowl no matter what their record is.
This was on ESPN.
ESPN also reported last year that we were headed to the SEC.
Who Notre Dame? This was part of the BCS show. Maybe they are wrong but as is the Orange Bowl is ACCC vs blank

ESPN said this morning that there are no bowl tie-in's. They are all wide open.

The BCS bowls were listed as: Rose Bowl Big 10-Pac12 and the yet to be determined Champions BowlBig12-SEC. So those four conferences have tie ins.
BCS Gets Boot in Favor of 4-Team Playoff
what a joke...the Big4 play each other and we play ND.....but they want you to believe the ACC is on equal footing....amazing
There will be 6 Bowls who are included in the playoff - but there are no conference tie-ins. They are wide open.
That is all according to BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock and ESPN this morning.

Swofford said this:
"There will be three contract bowls -- the Champions Bowl, which is a partnership between the Big 12 and SEC, the Rose Bowl, which has a longstanding tradition between the Big Ten and Pac 12, and a bowl to be determined for the ACC, which is likely to continue its partnership with the Orange Bowl.
"In terms of our contract bowl, and our New Year's Day tie-in, we expect to have an announcement on that jointly in the very near future," Swofford said.
The three other bowls, called "access bowls," have yet to be determined, but the decision will force the Sugar Bowl and Fiesta Bowl to become bidders."
It says in that article the Rose is Pac12-B10 and the yet to be determined Champions Bowl is SEC-B12. Maybe I am reading that wrong.
I'll trust Hancock over Swofford any and every day of the week.
This is all coming together. Things can/will change. One thing you have to remember is that the potential bowl tie-in's won't matter because of the teams in the playoffs.
I'm not worried about a CBS article. I'm going with what came out of Hancock's mouth. A little better source IYAM.
Again, these things aren't yet determined, and can/will most likely change. And any bowl tie-in's that they decide to stick with won't matter as conference champions from the Big 4 will most likely make the playoffs anyway.
"There will be three contract bowls -- the Champions Bowl, which is a partnership between the Big 12 and SEC, the Rose Bowl, which has a longstanding tradition between the Big Ten and Pac 12, and a bowl to be determined for the ACC, which is likely to continue its partnership with the Orange Bowl."
A four-team playoff for college football has been formally approved by a presidential oversight committee, a dramatic change for the sport that will begin in 2014.
The Champions Bowl doesn't even have a signed contract. Until then, it's nothing but a grand idea. So no, it's not.
And you're telling me that the Rose Bowl will have a tie-in when it is the spot for #1 vs #4? Not really sure how it will hold true to any tie-in.
The details have not been released - so all this is hearsay and conjecture until then.
The Rose and Champions will vacate their conference tie ins in the years they are the semi-final games. If the 1st or 2nd seeded teams were from the Pac 12 or Big 10, AND it was the Rose Bowls turn to be one of the 2 semi final games, that team might default to the Rose Bowl to play the 4th and 3rd seeded teams regardless of their conference. Likewise with the SEC/Big 12 in the years the Champions bowl is part of the rotation.
The Champions will likely be played at the stadiums which previously held the Sugar and Cotton, but the Big XII and SEC get the money (rather than the bowl committees) and control the overhead spending.

Either way...we are not in a good position in the ACC....we're going to be playing in a 1/2 full Orange Bowl that has less meaning than before.
This is the truth......and the ACC will be behind the curve in terms of $. It is going to be a mess for anyone who stays in the ACC.
