I was poking around and came across this recent interview with JoePa. It's a pretty good read and reminded me of many of the reasons he's unique and special besides his 44-year win-loss record.
And, oh yeah, he still does not want ND in the B10:
I think Notre Dame had a shot at it. I think there are some other schools that would be better, to me, for the whole situation. That would be a place like Rutgers, which would bring the New York-New Jersey television market into the Big Ten (Network). It also would help recruiting. Notre Dame would not be one of my top picks.

The best part about the above quote is that it's from his answer to a question about Nebraska joining the B10. The reporter never even mentions ND.
EDIT: I just saw they posted the second half of the interview and I added the link above. And now that I have read it, the priceless quotes are actually in Part II.
