The Passive Irish

Shortly before the ACC's plans to expand membership became public, Notre Dame scheduled several home and home football games with ACC schools. These future games fueled speculation that the Fighting Irish might join the ACC, despite the fact the school would be a geographic misfit.

In the last year Notre Dame adopted what it calls "smarter" schedules. As part of that strategy, the Fighting Irish canceled its scheduled games with NC State and Virginia, then added games with Duke, the ACC's perennial weakling. That is pretty damn week for the country's most hallowed football program.

I am sure this guy would be very proud.
