Irish gettin’ real?

Buck Belue seems to think so.

Bet that game in South Bend will be a tough ticket to get a hold of.

*************************************************************************

UPDATE:  It’s on.

Over/under on number of games VanGorder coaches?

Also, maybe I’m guessing wrong, but does it look like Georgia will face Notre Dame and South Carolina on back to back weeks in 2017?

Inching closer to the Irish

I’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveitI’mnotgonnabelieveit:

Georgia and Notre Dame are moving closer to a football series “later this decade,” Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity said Tuesday. And while no deal is done, and McGarity cautioned that there could be snags, he made clear that he would be eager for it to happen.

“I think it’s an opponent we’ve played, what, one time? 1980? For our fans to be able to go up to South Bend, and for our fans to see Notre Dame play between the hedges, I think from a national perspective it’d be off the charts, as far as interest, as far as intrigue,” McGarity said. “That would be something out of the ordinary that our fans would be very, very excited about.”

The two schools haven’t nailed down which years it would be, but McGarity said it would be in the range of 2017-20. Notre Dame would visit Sanford Stadium, and Georgia would visit Notre Dame Stadium.

If they actually pull this off, what are the odds VanGorder will still be there when they play?

To reiterate, it’s not that the schools resist spending money…

Case in point:

As has been in the case in recent years, the document showed that former football head coach Charlie Weis received more money from the school in 2012 than did any current athletics employee. Weis again received nearly $2.1 million as part of an ongoing separation agreement…

Kelly was listed with nearly $1.5 million in total pay…

So, yes, Charlie Weis was paid better than a half-million dollars more than the guy who got Notre Dame into the national title game for the first time in decades.  That 2005 loss to Southern Cal will go down as the most valuable defeat in Irish history.

These guys are morons.

“I think it’d be great for the University of Georgia if we were able to make it happen.”

For once, I wholeheartedly agree with you, Greg.  Make it so!

It’s only natural.

Puzzling tweet from Friday:

What do you figure makes that so in Kelly’s mind – both teams lost to Alabama in championship games, or revenge for 1981?

Seriously, I’d love a home-and-home, but given ND’s new scheduling deal with the ACC, this doesn’t sound like anything more than cheap talk.

Jim Delany is not a happy man today.

ACC is prepared to announce a grant of media rights agreement has been reached.  That cuts off the financial incentive for another conference to chase a current ACC school.

In other words, if a school decides to leave the ACC for, oh, say, the Big Ten, then its media revenues go to the ACC – and not to the school – for the length of the Grant of Media Rights agreement. Translation: you’re not leaving the league.

Even worse for Delany?  Note the number of schools that are parties to the agreement.  Then consider that the ACC is officially a 14-team conference (for football, anyway).  You do the math on what that means.
