If you throw in non-conference games during the season that takes away the on the fly scheduling advantage. Schultz tweeted yesterday that the mutt game wouldn't necessarily be out even if the conferences go to a conference only schedule.
Play 10 games before Thanksgiving and the in-state rivalry games would still be possible either Thanksgiving week or in early December. It wouldn't affect the ACC's ability to move games or even replay games between teams if a team has to pull out in the middle of the season. Also, playing a non-conference rivalry game after the ACC season wouldn't be as big of an issue if the non-conference team didn't follow the same protocols as the ACC.
The ACC hasn't actually made an announcement as far as I know. If things are changed to a conference only schedule, I don't see the schedule being slightly modified to add two more games. I see the schedules completely starting over. I doubt GT-Syracuse would be on the new schedule.
