Or would they take a similar strategy that led them to the ACC? A more expansive base along the East Coast and reaching deep into the South?

Who would we be willing to take if Notre Dame made a few demands? That's my question.

No one. We have Florida, Georgia, L.S.U., Texas and Texas A&M. All of those are solid recruiting areas and 3 of 4 states have large growing Catholic populations. We aren't taking Navy and ND only needs 1 free game to keep USC. Indiana is contiguous to Kentucky.

FSU would be a possible pairing. Kansas is available and helps balance football density, and Ohio State would be the grand slam.

I wasn't thinking in terms of a school like Navy. More so, the schools on the East Coast that tap populations favorable to Notre Dame's base.

The Midwest and the East Coast are fertile grounds for Notre Dame viewers. If we got the Irish then there's a few heads in the Big Ten that have to turn because they know the jig is up.

ATU, ND want's access to solid recruiting in the states I listed. They own NE viewing so they don't need tagalongs. They want USC. It's not complicated. But yeah, ND & Kansas joining the SEC would be the equivalent of Dandy Don Meredith singing "Turn Out The Lights The Partys Over" to the B1G.

Why not ND and USC to the SEC?

They could eventually, but I think this unfolds predictably in 1 of 2 paths. The B1G adds the PAC 12 AAU's and one other (ASU, Kansas, or ND) and the SEC moves to 24 out of the ACC. Or, the Big Ten divides over mission and the best way forward and Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Iowa, and possibly Nebraska and Wisconsin or Michigan State along with only the high value PAC 12 schools (think Washington, USC, Oregon, UCLA, & Stanford) join with the SEC coalition to form 1 large league.

We could reach #1 and then #2 should the lesser B10 and PAC schools try to transition, or simply jump to #2 if they split first.
