Notre Dame: They "Cherry-Picked" the Weak ACC

Let me see if I have this correct: Notre Dame is officially joining the ACC as a participant in all sports except for football and hockey. However, the conference has said the Irish must play five ACC teams in football each year. Five? Why not require them to be a full-fledged member and play a full football schedule, or require them to play no games at all? What's with this arrangement? I think the reason is what I have maintained all along about the ACC, and that is the fact that they are NOT a football conference. They want to be, and perhaps claim to be, but in reality they are not. I just cannot imagine the SEC ever adding a member who was not going to participate in football. Heck, we could have had that with Vanderbilt years ago if we had dangled it in front of them. They were barely playing football, as we know it,  most of the time anyway. But I digress...I don't know who has come out on top in this arrangement, which by the way probably won't even happen until 2015. I suppose Notre Dame did, since it seems they got what they wanted  for the most part. Go figure...
