I'm a believer in ND being allowed to remain independent. If it's that important who is it for anyone else to balk at. However, the way money is completely souring the entire college sports industrial complex and how they are so public about wanting Stanford and Cal (presumably to increase their academic standing as well as increasing the inventory for their ACC games) is it too much to ask for ND to pony up money to the other members to keep this boat afloat? I feel like their relationship with the league is at a crossroads and if they want to play at the "winged foot or shinnecock" of basketball leagues, they should pay to do so. Or, just join for everything and allow them to fold the NBC deal into the league's payout.
