College football is trending toward the formation of super-conferences, should Notre Dame join up?

Absolutely not.

There’s no question that Notre Dame remains a member of college football royalty but unfortunately, Queen Elizabeth is probably a more appropriate comparison than Kate Middleton.

Could joining a conference bring the Irish back to the top of college football?

I’d argue that it will do just the opposite.

As an independent, Notre Dame has a few inherent advantages over teams affiliated with a conferences. Over the years, the Irish have utilized these advantages better than any team in college football. Unless there is a major shift in any of these three areas, there’s no reason why Notre Dame can’t flourish as an independent for the foreseeable future.
