Re: 2012/13 Observation Deck
UNC runs the ACC. They're going nowhere until the ACC is dead and buried. And unless they're stupid it's to the open arms of the Big Ten and the CIC.
The Big Ten brings dozens of millions. Being in the CIC (which IS the Big Ten) brings literal Billions. As a university there's no reason to say no to the Big Ten. Unless you're Notre Dame's arrogant ass who brings absolutely nothing to the research juggernaut that is the Big Ten. If Notre Dame gave a shit about their actual school they'd have been in the Big Ten in 93.
