And apparently there is some talk of them joining, but phasing in
their football program over the course of time.  Also, there is some
talk that their administration wants to go B10, but their Trustees are
split.

The B10 money must be very tempting. It's clear ND's independent deals
just can't come close to the dollars the Big 10 can generate.

That said, i really hope ND remains indy, it's a core college football
tradition and not worth tossing overboard for the money. Of course it's
easy for me to say that when i'm not in line to receive any money, nor
am i responsible for meeting ND budgets, LOL.

It's beyond that though. If the mega conferences do become the trend, there
might be no place for the independent.

The age of independents is over. It was sad 20 years ago.

It appears that he was not at the meeting:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On CFT's Twitter account earlier Sunday evening, we had someone post
the following:

    did you hear that Jack Swarbrick (ND AD) was a the Big Ten
meetings today. What is up with that!

Needless to say, that piqued our interest.  So we sent an email to
several people at Notre Dame.  Here's the response to the Twitter post
in question, courtesy of Brian Hardin, the Irish's Director of
Football Media Relations:

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the email. I think the 150 people that attended the
graduation open house of Jack Swarbrick's son today in Indianapolis
would help me deny that Jack was in attendance at the Big Ten meetings
today in Chicago. I hate to have to throw cold water on yet another
"report" regarding Notre Dame and the Big Ten, but like many "reports"
before this one, there isn't any validity to it. Feel free to quote me
on any of this.

So, there you have it. Notre Dame's athletic director was not at the
Big Ten meeting this afternoon.

What's up with Swarbrick's son having an open house in Indy? Sonny boy
doesn't live with daddy in South Bend or Mishawaka?

Q.

Personally, from what people have said, youve given up a lot family
wise to come up here. Youre commuting, what, about two and a half hours?
A.

Door to door for me its about 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Q.

Lots of cops in Kokomo (Ind.) if I recall.
A.

I have a good radar detector. (Laughs.)
Q.

Talk about the balance, as you clearly had to have a passion to come
here if you were going to juggle that type of schedule.
A.

Yeah, its more the decision to take the job than the geography.
Because one of the reasons we reached the decision we did about our
family, and the reason we did it is because we have a senior and
junior in high school and we wanted them to finish high school. It was
the belief that once I got here, once I moved here with my family they
wouldnt see me much anyway during that first year. It was considering
going through the challenges of that relocation and not have dad
around as much or leave them in a setting theyre comfortable with and
have all of us go back and forth. So we opted for that. From this
perspective, having done it for a year, were pretty comfortable that
it was the right move.

i sure hope not. Heck, it will even hurt the Big 10 games. ND has
longstanding rivalries with purdue, michigan, and michigan state, and
those are special for the B10 teams in part because they aren't just
another Big 10 game - which they will be if ND joins the Big 10.
