I think you are spot on. From ND's perspective, they have managed to enjoy the best of both worlds. They are in a conference where it best suits their interests and independent where it serves their traditions and interests without hurting their bottom line. I don't see them changing until staying the course isn't possible or they are falling way behind financially.ND is probably looking to combine a deal with the Big 12 or ACC that will get them the money they are looking for so they can stay independent for a few more years at least.
