Unnamed sources confirm Notre Dame has deferred its secret pre-emptive non-invitation to the Big 10 to see what the University of Texas does. Its all about making the pie bigger. And ND is the consolation prize, they just dont know it yet.
Summation: If Texas joins the Big 10, Notre Dame may acknowledge the existence of the denied speculative non-invitation to join the Big 10 too, because the Big East comes apart. If not, who cares. It’s all about Texas.
Discussions on academics and student athlete experience and class week travel are quaint references to a bygone era. If the Big 10 lands Texas, these kids’ll be pampered and flying charter on B10 Network airlines with tutors on board to compensate for the extra 45 minute flight. They’ll get over it.
The Big 10 network is shaping up to be a very big deal. They are basically cutting out the middleman.
Texas or bust.
