Sorry. They first played in 1897. Pretty historic.

That is an excellent point. Of course Michigan is int he conference with its top 2 rivals, which makes it easier.

Why the hell didnt ND join the B1G?

I saw that. He later backed off that saying it wasnt THE rivalry for either team, but it is a rivalry.

@slmandel
Well put. RT @NDatRivals: @slmandel Notre Dame-Michigan is a rivalry, but it's not THE RIVALRY for either school. That's USC and Ohio State.

I agree that playing Purdue and State every year is pointless, but this is Michigan fergodsakes. I guess I would want to drop the toughest of those three to though.


Which is why they should have dropped Michigan State!

Notre Dame is trying to stay as relevant as possible in both the east coast and west coast population centers.

I am definitely not a fan of this Notre Dame-ACC rivalry. I'm fine if they are playing Boston College, Pitt, and Georgia Tech, but tuning in to see Notre Dame play Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina, Virginia, etc. just doesn't do it for me.

of course, which makes sense from a recruiting standpoint.

ND can not maintain a national identity if they continue to limit themselves to midwestern football games.

We all knew this was going to happen.

ND only has 3 open slots now with the ACC schedule and their real traditional rivalries.

Michigan will now go into the rotation to keep the schedule fresh.

Cmon. They play 3 midwestern games a year, sometimes. Some years they dont play Purdue.

Ahh yes, the classic rivalry of Notre Dame and Navy. Everytime I pass through Annaopolis the signs hanging in all the windows state, "Beat the Irish". Everytime I go to a Notre Dame game, no matter who they are playing, someone in the crowd yells, "Beat Navy".

I like the SC vs. ND rivalry, and look forward to it every year. Definitely the best cross-country rivalry in CF. Losing U-Mich is a bit of a shame, since they also have history, but it's not a big deal IMHO.

The people in charge of ND are brilliant. Join the ACC but not in football, water down football schedule which gives them more sure fire wins. Take ACC bowl ties and make more money all while not really helping the ACC makes its football stronger at all

a small, private school in indiana can not maintain a national identity if they were to join the B1G which is why moving games to the east coast while still playing games with USC and Stanford makes great sense.

Again, the UM-ND is not being cancelled indefinitely; the two schools will meet again but it will just be on a rotation.

UM should schedule a series with FSU or Texas or USC; it would be a nice change from the yearly ND game.

ND should have stayed truly independent in football. Five games a year in the ACC does not maintain independence completely.

ND should have worked out a deal with Catholic Schools who don't have FBS football for a conference for all other sports.

I can't beleive that the ACC whored themselves out to ND for other sports and five games a year. The ACC should have said all in or all out.
