Easy to be on a moral high ground when you're on the outside looking in

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10

Do you agree with what they are doing Smoot?
Or just because they got they're tit in the ringer financially, and they need bailing out?
It appears to be a purely financial move...and I view that as a shame due to the history they leave behind especially in the world of basketball. Nobody reading this board will likely live ling enough to see those types of rivalries re-kindled.
UM has never really been a consistent football program or supported any differently. Roundball however was another matter...

I don't have any emotional attachment to the Terps, let me just say that first. Secondly, yes I do agree. Yeah it's primarily financial. So what? It's the most important thing here. History, tradition? None of that is going to solve the school's issues. And these rivalries everyone raves about are fading away regardless. There aren't any more annual home and homes with Duke or UNC.

Yeah its a real shame college athletics have become what this is all about. Thank god the kids dont get paid right? There alot of crooks and over paid crooks in colleges athletics...its a different issue, but its all tied together. Ill miss the good things Maryland brought to the conference, but its disappointing when it comes down to money.

Well we know Mark hated to fundraise, even though he is a "well deserved" millionaire. sad

Rutgers is following the Terps into the Big Ten.

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10

Why are people all of the sudden acting like they never knew how much money dictated college sports? Money is the reason why Notre Dame is in the national spotlight, even though up until last year they sucked in football. Money is the reason why the ACC decided to add more teams, thus ending the home/home basketball series in what was once a basketball conference. Money is the reason why we will never see a college football playoff system.

Maryland Athletics was in a financial mess thanks to Debbie Yow and thanks for some bad decisions after there was some success in football. The move made financially and I really hope it works out for my Alma Mater.

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10

i hope it works, but Maryland had a serious, serious spending problem. It was never the ACC, it was fully on Maryland and there money problem is there own making...its really a shame.

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10

So the arguments I've been hearing so far is, this is good for the Maryland program because of, umm, well money?

UMD is/was one of the charter members of the ACC. That's a pretty big deal to me. It's a big deal that the school has severed competitive and academic ties with the likes of Duke, UVA, and Tarheel nation. Sorry if nostalgia and tradition matters to me, but it does. It's important. And this move fukcing stinks.

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10

It helps them out financially, but in the long run it's going to make their football program even worse than what it is now. At least in the ACC they had some sort of a shot. In the Big 10, they have absolutely none. They'll continue to get curb stomped by the likes of Mich, OSU, MSU, Purdue, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and PSU.


I'll miss them beating Duke in basketball though. Always made me smile as a UNC fan.

Financial problems were due to Debbie Yow and the crazy spending that happened after the initial football success under The Fridge.

Tradition ended when the ACC decided to become a football conference and ended the home/home series with the likes of Duke and UNC.

Agreed, especially since it seemed like the ACC was going to arbitrarily push to have Pitt as the new Maryland rival. As a huge Terps fan I can assure you that I don't give two shits about Pitt.

Re: Maryland is (potentially) moving to the Big 10
