As I stated earlier in the thread before expressing my opinion of other sports teams: I went to a decent small school and played club sports only. I have g teat respect for even the bench warmer on a bad division I team.
It's going to be very, very difficult to have any interest in the Terps when they move to the Big 10. This just feels like it doesn't fit.
It's going to be tough watching the ACC automatic qualifier get destroyed in the BCS again.
Good thing we won't have to watch too many ACC bowl games...barely any teams are even eligible.
Just looking at all the top 25 Big 10 basketball teams will get me psyched for hoops.
I hope this is a rhetorical question?
Besides expanding the media market into the heavily populated mid-Atlantic, I also think the Terps have a lot to offer the BT, with, perhaps, the exception of football. In basketball -both men and woman's - the Terps will be in the mix for a big ten championship many years. Even in football, the Terps will do fine against IU, Iowa, Minny, MSU and Purdue.
If it were just about football, the obvious choice from the ACC would have been VaTech. But Maryland offers so much more, and that includes academics.
doesn't really matter at this point ......
they killed the ACC for me as a 26 year terp club member with the expansion and the end of the home and away games with Duke and UNC ........
With Pitt, Syracuse and UCONN (rumored) to be joining the ACC...lol...you are watching the transformation of the ACC into the Big East.
You are Pig 10 biased, admit it. Philosophically the same as the NY/NJ carpetbaggers who come down to Balt/DC, but are still stinkin' Yankee fans...
A very astute observation...for the 1970's and 1980's that would be true. A C average and knowing how to spell Maryland, would have gotten you admitted.
Not the case anymore. Very competitive. As is Rutgers, for that mater.
Of course I'm biased for the BiG. Best conference, and richest conference....bar none. However, my bias towards the BiG has nothing to do with what I see are Maryland attributes that can help the Big Ten. If there were none, then I most certainly would be against it.You are Pig 10 biased, admit it. Philosophically the same as the NY/NJ carpetbaggers who come down to Balt/DC, but are still stinkin' Yankee fans...
If Terp fans are pissed....to be honest, I really don't care. It will just mean that I can get tickets to games when Big Ten teams come to town. In fact, I hope you all drop your loyalty to Maryland. No sweat off my back.
It's Big East light.
Oh, and it's just a matter of time before VaTech and FSU leave the Big East light. It's coming. Keep watching.
If the BiG expands to 16, as many think they will, the next acquisition will be VaTech. FSU will then look to try and join the SEC. Once this transformation is complete, the Big East Light, I mean the ACC, will be irrelevant in the most important of college sports - football.
It's coming....Maryland is lucky to be out ahead of the transformation.
I can root for BiG tem teams, while still wishing Maryland the best when not playing schools that I either attended, or that my kids attended. Simple concept, for even the C student, like you, can understand.
After all, it was you, a whinny disgruntled alum, who said your were "pissing on all your Maryland memorabilia". Don't forget your diploma, while your pissing on things. I thing the Fridge pretty much did the same thing after he was fired.
Daughter and I were discussing this today, mostly from the WLax point of view. She mentioned some ramifications with the ACC's automatic qualifier status with Md moving to the Big 10, especially if Rutgers also follows. I would imagine other sports would also be affected.
