Why are people downvoting the OP for reporting this?  It's legitimate news.  He isn't trolling.  Do people just take it out on the OP when they don't like something?

ND is devout cowards and are too chicken to join The Big 10 for all sports which it be all sports or nothing ND shouldn't pick and choose that's not right and unfair.

They don't pick and choose.

They're a full fledged member of the ACC in all sports except hockey and football.

Football: ND remains independent but is an associate member of the ACC (agreement to play 6 ACC games per year).

Hockey: The ACC doesn't sponsor hockey so it's impossible for ND to represent the conference

So they pick and choose. This conference for a bunch of sports, no conference for another sport, this conference for another sport. If the conference you're in doesn't match your values or needs, perhaps join another conference. Although this makes the B1G stronger in hockey,

ND isn't part of the B1G and shouldn't be allowed to play in our hockey conference. Perhaps if ND wasn't in the B1G, they wouldn't get as many top recruits. Maybe those recruits would go to Michigan, MSU, OSU or some future Iowa team, thereby making the actual B1G better.

You can't "pick and choose" when the only sport you're not a full member of doesn't even offer the sport, and the other one you're an associated member of your conference and play 6 games every single year within the conference.

You CANT pick and choose a conference if your choice is A) not to be officially in a conference at all and B) a member of another conference due to your own conference not sponsoring a sport.

I'm so sorry I upset the site. Why don't you come over and burn my house down because I posted something on this board. There are too many anal people on here for me. Kiss my ass. Down vote that.

This news is well over a year old. We aren't downvoting because you hadn't heard it yet. We're downvoting because you remained oblivious to how old the news was right up until, and presumably after posting it.

This is not your finest MGoMoment. Its ok. I made my first post here years ago without knowing the difference between the board and the diary section. I got made fun of. I deserved it.

Also, its a far cry from some "We landed on the moon" comments to burning down your house. Lighten up. We're already laughing at you. You can choose to laugh with us or be a dick about it.
