Seems like fewer ACC Network games

Which is a huge plus. Although how that final game at Virginia isn't on national television I don't know.


I don't believe CBS has selected all of their games yet

Notre Dame usually appears on CBS at least once during the season. Looking at the schedule, it appears the only possibilities would be the Dec. 16 game vs. Indiana and the game you mentioned at Virginia on Mar. 3.

CBS is already scheduled to carry Syracuse vs. Georgetown at 12:30 PM ET on Dec. 16. The tip time for the Indiana game is TBA, though the games usually tip in the mid-afternoon/early evening. Fox is another possibility due to the Big 10 contractual ties.


In the past, ND's games on CBS were announced

with the schedule release. It would appear we have no regular season CBS games this season.


Think the ND-IU game is likely to end up on ESPN.

According to a little quick digging, the Crossroads Classic TV rights are based on the conference rights and alternate years:

In even years they are Indiana (Big Ten) and Butler (Big East)
In odd years they are ND (ACC) and Purdue (Big Ten)

So at least through the current agreement end of 2019, since ND is always playing IU or Purdue in their "off" year, the ACC affiliation always controls the broadcast rights to our game.


Game is on Fox *

Which means the Big Ten controlled the telecast
by ShermanOaksND  (2017-09-12 14:30:42)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

ND is the only one of the four teams in a conference not affiliated with Fox Sports.


As far as the Crossroads games are concerned

Usually (at least, the past couple of years) the game involving IU is on an ESPN channel and the game involving Purdue is on Big Ten Network.


CBS has the B1G Semis the day of the UVA game

Don't forget -- That idiot Delaney moved the B1G Tournament up a week just so they could play it in the hallowed Madison Square Garden.

It is possible the DePaul game ends up on FOX as a lead in to their college football that day.


I'm sure the NCAA tourney teams will enjoy the two weeks off

Three Big Monday games
by ShermanOaksND  (2017-09-07 22:35:18)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

At Duke 1/29, at UNC 2/12, home vs. Miami 2/19.

No Sunday night ESPNU games. In fact, the only Sunday game on the schedule is December 3 vs. St. Francis Brooklyn, at 2 pm (between MSU and Ball State).


2 sure losses
by tb-sb  (2017-09-07 23:26:36)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

The league made certain that we had Saturday games( one starting at 8:00 p.m.) before Big Monday
away games against its darlings, Duke and North Carolina.

Not good for the ACC old guard to see its flagship schools loose regularly to a Catholic school known for football.


We've won on both of those courts before
by ShermanOaksND  (2017-09-07 23:37:42)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

And both Duke and UNC have games the Saturday before we play them on Big Monday. We all know how protective the ACC is of those two, but this is not a particularly illustrative example of that.


If Pitino's suspension holds up, he won't coach vs ND 1/16 *

3 ACC home games before the students are back
by Keough09Roos  (2017-09-07 16:17:30)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Including the 1/13 game against UNC. The residence halls don't open back up until Sunday 1/14.


Compare with Duke and UNC...
by NDMike2001  (2017-09-08 10:36:16)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Duke...well, they don't really play anyone away. No seriously. They play at BC, Pitt, Miami, Wake, St.J, UNC, Clemson and VTech. Pitt and possibly Miami would be during winter break.

UNC away games: FSU, UVA, UND, VTech, Clem, NCS, Lou, Syr, Duke

That's a tough slate for UNC. But they also play at FSU, UVA and ND during winter break.


Maybe Coach Brey can have a word with Res Life

And see if they can't open things up a day earlier.


That will be Alumni Winter Sports Weekend *

So catch the game, make it to midnight, and check in! *

GT home, Cuse away, GT away, UNC home, Ville home


The SU game is advantageous, for me at least
by tf86  (2017-09-12 08:29:15)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

I live about a 1 1/2 hour drive away from the Carrier Dome. The game is on a Saturday, and before SU's students will be returning from break. That means that: (a) it'll be much easier for me to get to the game than if it were played on a weeknight; and (b) there will be far more tickets available (and perhaps at a cheaper price) than is usually the case. Also, I have to think that playing an away game at Syracuse before its students return from break has to be beneficial to our team.

I do agree with you and the poster below that we have a tough conference schedule coming out of the gate.


Your list omits the Jan. 3, 2018, vs. NC State game.

Still, that's a lot of firepower we'll be going up against.
