FILE - In this Sept. 22, 2012, file photo, Notre Dame's TJ Jones makes a catch against Michigan's Raymon Taylor during the first half of an NCAA college football game in South Bend, Ind. Nobody really knows how Notre Dame makes any of its decisions, though dropping a rivalry against the university that the Irish played their first football game ever against (Michigan) in 1887 would seem to be a mistake at first blush.
