Notre Dame Could Move Non-Revenue Sports To Big 12

According to a report from Orangebloods.com, the house organ of the Texas athletic department, Notre Dame may be leaning closer towards moving their Olympic sports out of the Big East and into the Big 12.

The school would maintain its independence in football as well as its TV contract with NBC, but it would agree to play anywhere from 3-6 football games against Big 12 competition on an annual basis.

Nevertheless, the move could have a drastic effect on the college re-alignment picture, as it would be yet another nail in the coffin that is the Big East conference and a huge upgrade to the national profile of the Big 12, particularly if college football continues moving towards a super-conference model.

At the same time, it would also open up a few interesting possibilities for Texas, as many have speculated that the Longhorn Network is an attempt at a back-run around the rest of the Big 12 for a situation like the Golden Domers would be getting from the conference.
