Jack Swarbrick has consistently put Notre Dame's football independence above all else. Even when faced with a daunting prospect of playoff expansion, a move that could have forced Notre Dame, yet again, into conference membership, he found an out.

Sacrifices have to be made to protect the ND family. A playoff by may have been left at the scene of the crime, but Jack executed any thought that the Irish would need to flock to a conference to preserve title hopes.

In doing so, Shane and I see all kinds of potential for opportunity, incredible matchups, and even potentially chaos not just on the field, but off as well once conference TV contracts come to an end.
