So its been said online that any expansion allows the ACC to renegotiate their contract with ESPN. Is it possible that Swofford is a genius and has been in talks with ESPN for figures on a new deal to add Notre Dame and PSU. He then floats those figures to both PSU and Notre Dame to think about.
While waiting on PSU and Notre Dame, Swofford goes out and gets SU and Pitt, to go along with BC. Now he can go back to Notre Dame and PSU and be like "whats up now bitches?"
Does ESPN back up the truck to get a true East Coast Conference together? Wikipedia says the NBC Notre Dame deal is through 2015. Thoughts? Could this be in the works?
