Thou wilt be leaving the ACC for the Big Ten Conference

But thou wilt not be making this move until July 2014

Therefore, thou shalt play two more complete seasons of ACC Basketball, starting tomorrow (Thursday, 7 PM at Comcast) against UVA

Hark, it is written that this is (kinda) weird, but thou shalt do thy best to forget about the B1G for now and focus entirely on the ACC

Go forth, Terps, and Beat the Cavs!

I don't give two s-ts about the Big Ten. I'm a Maryland alum so I am always for the Terps, but it's hard to care about playing Wisconsin or whatever midwestern team we're going to be forced by Dictator Loh to play.

One of the reasons we needed to go to the BIG is that there is a large hole in our financial position. Football makes a profit and to some extent, men's basketball. Hence, the need to make money. Women's basketball does not turn a profit...especially with the addition of a number of higher paid coaches. Let's get over it. No one wanted this deal but the idea of tradition takes a secondary position to being financially viable. I hate it too but its life in the 21st century. Believe me...after we fall over the cliff, it will be more difficult to find money to fund educational/college initiatives on any level.

Not saying I'm not over it; rather, I don't like it. There is a difference between accepting something and liking it. Also, football is the reason we are in this mess - Kirwan (Yow and Mote are the fall people) decided to expand Tyser Tower even though we had trouble filling Byrd to begin with. They were warned not to do that and did it anyway. Firing the Fridge (in a totally classless and unacceptable way) and replacing him with the disaster that is Randy Edsall didn't help either. Oh, and the low level of donations by alumni is another issue. I donate so I feel I can criticize others who do not (and can - different story if you cannot). I look forward to not ever traveling to another away game b/c you can bet your boots I will never set foot in flyover country.

The only good thing I can think of about joining the Big Ten is that Maryland joins the Big Ten CIC Network in the Summer of next year. This is where member schools pool their academic resources allowing Maryland to digialize their library and network with other Big Ten schools. Lets say in the future when you can't find a book in the Maryland Library, you go to the Big Ten CIC online resource and can find it in the Ohio State or Northwestern Library got example. So the Big Ten is much more than just another collegiant athletic conference. They are almost the Ivy League of major colleges, IMO.
