Probably Swoffard’s biggest modern coup


was getting ND to join the ACC. Other
conferences had been begging them for decades. Imagine Gene Corrigan had a background role in those negotitions.ND brings monster
TV ratings & fans wherever they play. Swoffard’s getting out at a good time as the landscape may be changing big time due to the pandemic. Could have smaller leagues closer to home.IMO D1 college athletics had pretty much maxed out pre prepandemic. UVA apparently has approximately 400 athletes on some kind of aid & maybe 100 plus coaches. The arms race has been amazing to watch. Swafford going out on top for sure.
