Maryland will join the Big Ten

The fan base we’ve recently grown to hate is packing up its things and leaving the ACC for more mediocre pastures. ┬áThe University of Maryland Board of Regents approved the school’s eventual move to the Big Ten this morning and an official announcement is expected later this afternoon.

Maryland, one of the ACC’s founding members, will be hit with a $50 million exit fee from the conference, and that penalty could directly affect the price of your favorite Under Armour and Old Bay Seasoning products, unfortunately.

No word on whether or not Maryland will apply to be a Legend or a Leader.

    Maryland fans were assholes in Brooklyn. Had multiple run-ins with those idiots. They will fit in well with the jerk off IU fans in the Big 10.

    I just read this on USA Today’s website and it also said Rutgers is leaving the BE for Big 10. BE is becoming the Very Little, Little East

    Can we get some more Red/white teams into the Big 10?

    Indiana
    Wiscy
    Ohio State
    Maryland
    Nebraska
    Rutgers (Possibly)

    It will be interesting to see whether Maryland is forced to pay the buyout.

    Maryland just simply isn’t relevant. To the ACC, Big 10, or any other conference. When was the last time they were ranked nationally in basketball or football? It’s been 10 years probably.

    Maryland is stupid, spend $50 million dollars to make what amounts to as a lateral move.

    So, Maryland and Rutgers to the B1G, UConn to the ACC. There should be another domino falling, but it’s hard to call at this point.

    Based on the hair I would say Legends.

    Someone please help with the current numbers:
    SEC = 14 teams
    Big Ten = 14 team
    ACC = 13 teams?
    Big 12 = 11 teams?
    Pac 10 = 12 teams?
    Big East = 8 teams?

    You put a carolina blue sweater on that old guy and got UNC’s mascott.

    #13…the fact that you think this is a “lateral” move shows how little you know about college athletics. The Big Ten Network is a super cash cow for Big Ten schools that pushes them beyond what even the SEC gets paid out.

    Thats before we even get into a discussion about the CIC. Then again thats an academic thing so lets not confuse you more.

    Captain Kangaroo sure has aged well.

  20. 19, you got me. He looks much more like the Captain than Kris Kringle!

    It’s all about the money. Big Ten going after the Baltimore and DC TV market. The very reason UL will never go to a larger conference….No large TV market, thanks to UK, Ohio State, and CIncinnati.

    Cut little jab with the Legends Leader comment. I don’t know if the Big Ten is less mediocre. UK should drop to the MAC in football maybe even CUSA.

    Good move by UM. As much money as B1G makes off BTN they will make even more when they renegotiate a few years down the road. The SEC needs a similar network.

    ACC will pick up UConn – although it was rumored to want UConn and Rutgers to get them to 16 teams. No way they look at Cards unless they still want 16. But the Big 12 (10 teams) will be looking to add 2 more and will likely look to get Louisville before the ACC expands any more.
