Notre Dame's belligerence has been a pain in the a** for college football going on several decades now.
I have news for you... Notre Dame is more important and holds more clout than about 100 of those 119 teams combined. Notre Dame doesn't care what the San Jose St.'s, Maryland's, and Western Kentucky's agree to. Neither does anybody else in college football.
Furthermore, you're not going to get everybody in college football to agree to a conference winner only setup. Especially not the SEC. A conference winner only setup is only implemented with the intent of limiting the SEC... that's it.
There's no way that anybody with half a brain agrees to a system that lets an 8-4 Big-East Champ get into a playoff for the national title while a 1 loss SEC team would get left out.
I get Notre Dame was once highly relevant, but that time has long, long since passed. If the BCS conferences wanted to split away from the NCAA (at this point it seems like it is a matter of time) and Notre Dame didn't want to join, none of the other schools would care.
