To add to that, Notre Dame has played Northwestern 47 times. Is anyone upset that they aren't playing every year?


Michigan State has more of a claim of having a historic rivalry with ND than Michigan. ND has played MSU 75 times. They have also played Purdue 84 and future ACC member Pitt 65 times.

Not a big deal, but I'm sad to see it. I always love watching ND vs Sparty/UM. If I were a ND fan I'd probably be upset at losing good games(to replace with more than likely shitty ones), but again

That's fine...all I said was nd is still playing big names outside of the acc opponents


USC and Stanford should cut them off....recruiting in Cali will die and ND will become even less relevant.

That's true but if I'm Notre Dame I drop all of those to keep Michigan... because the national brand name of Michigan >> those three schools.

Losing to Michigan doesn't really hurt you that much, people are preconditioned to believe Michigan is good even when they aren't. When you lost to Purdue or Michigan State people step back and question how good your team is.

Only 37 meetings and not annually since 02 =/= historic.

Sorry. They first played in 1897. Pretty historic.



Could have been more historic if it wasn't for Yost. Instead, it's expendable. Too bad.

How cute. The Iwish send a letter stating the series is suspended after the last game in South Bend in 2014. If I were the Michigan AD I'd start looking for a replacement, play the game as schedule at Ann Arbor in 2013 and then send them a letter saying stick it, we ain't coming to your house.

But that doesn't matter to ND. It's not like we're struggling name recognition wise. And we still play USC every year, plus a bunch of other big games.

That's because Michigan State is a rather newbie, like you, to the Big10.

The ND/MSU game was created out of both being independents in a close geographic region. Not sure what year MSU joined the Big 10 but it was possibly in the 1970's.

I have no idea why ND dropped it. My guess is more variety. My point was keeping Michigan doesn't matter and there's no reason we need to.

1950, they replaced Chicago when they left in 1946. Only Penn State and Nebraska are newer.

MSU/ND dates back to 1912, but it more or less annual starting after WWII.

Then again, Rivalry Trophies in the Big 10 region are a dime a dozen.

Thx. I just remember the famous tie game 10-10 in 1966 (?) for the NC and I thought MSU had just joined the Big 10 at that time.

It looks like the series with Michigan State will continue if you read the article in the four on and two off format. I think MSU was more willing to work with ND on scheduling.

ND wants to play a school from Michgian and the Midwest and they can do that with MSU and Purdue. I suspect they will play Purdue every year since it's an instate game and a game they can more readily win.

Really?

Your last two football decisions were to join the shittiest football conference in the nation and then you dropped Michigan and you aren't sure why?

So you can win games easier (don't tell anyone!).

UM hasn't been that good in a while; MSU is the better of the pair right now, and should be for a while.

And ND had a similar agreement with the Big East prior, so the ACC deal is a step up in that regard.
