Because ND likes to associate themselves with the east coast. They have a lot of alumni in the east coast. I am not sure the ACC is the best choice. A Big East with Virginia Tech, BC, and Miami would have been better for them, but thats not the case anymore. I agree, I think the Big 10 is better for them, but I am biased because I'm a Purdue grad. But also I am grad student at ND, and the feeling I get here is that they aren't joining a conference anytime soon, and if they were I doubt it would be a the big 10.
Also, the NBC contract was renewed last year, so this whole conference thing isn't going to be an issue for a couple more years
