"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
Yep. Hey K, we're used to being the outsider in the conference.
To be fair K was against ACC expansion but his "ACC people" started this mess in the first place. Once on the tiger's back and all that. Where was all this hand wringing when the ACC was sticking a dagger in the Big East and letting them bleed out on the sidewalk?
To his point about presidents and AD's not sticking around we had an AD who was ACC through and through and she skipped town right before the plane crashed into the mountainside.
it doesn't matter, we suck no matter what conference we're in.
the last 3 quarters of basketball has been the worst in two decades.
Is Bob Wade still alive? Is he ripping us on Twitter?
Do we still get paid the same as the insider schools? Then I don't care.
I have mixed emotions about the conference change, and I get some of what Krzyzewski is saying. But the 'outsider' bit is comical, coming from an icon of the conference that assigned a charter member to be paired as a "rival" WITH A SCHOOL THAT ISN'T EVEN IN THE CONFERENCE YET.

Don't worry K, Dook will fit right in the BOD.
Agreed that was a screw job but once vt joined UVA was out of the equation for us. Wish the acc would've allowed wvu in as that would be legit rival for us. I know I'm in the minority on this board but the jump to the b1g blows. Half the schools set the game of basketball back to the Stone Age. I think I'd rather watch softball than Nebraska and Wisconsin play hoops. We got our dogs in the lig but at least they run the floor.
Upvoted kind sir.
Have you watched any UVA games?
The proof is not in the pudding, The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.
Funny, K is calling the kettle black. MD has always been an outsider in the ACC. Duke, Noth Carolina, NC State & to lesser extent wake always drove the bus
Terps had 14 points at half time in Miami
Yes, but that was because we can't shoot, not because we don't shoot.
F@ck the ACC, f@ck Ratface.
K will be an insider in the deepest circle of hell, as he sold his soul decades ago. I could give a ratface's ass about his opinion on our move to the big 10. Also he can go fuck himself.
"And in Maryland’s case, that’s the only conference they’ve known"
The world did not begin in 1953. The Big Ten had been in existence nearly 60 years at that point.
K's 'ripple effect' argument is a bit ironic as well. After that, he lost me. Oh well... Not quite sure what the purpose of his ranting. The deal is done. Move on.
I am so done with the ACC. K can go pound sand.
I absolutely detest that guy ... but he's much more right than wrong.
This. K is such a sanctimonious jerk.
Michigan State fan here. We did a poor job as a conference when PSU joined, no question, but I think if a Nebraska fan was here he/she would say we've done a good job of welcoming them to the conference with open arms. We've learned from our past mistake. The Huskers are equal partners in defining the conference as we go forward and the same will be true of Maryland and Rutgers. From the first day, we will make a new path in which all of our universities/athletic programs/fanbases provide contributions. This will not be a situation where it's the Big Ten plus Maryland and/or Rutgers. It's all of us. Together. Good luck with the rest of your basketball seasons and try to forget about Coach K. He's wrong on this one.
Bet Ben Franklin's neighbors weren't investing in Yankee candles when he got his kite zapped. That changed life as they knew it all for the better. America changes things, that is what we were put here for. So get on the boat or get carried out by the tide. Go B1G or go home, our new slogan.
Appreciate your sentiments, and I don't worry about being an outsider except in the sense that there will be no true rivalry feelings for the first decade. K is right that conference realignment has destroyed traditional rivalries and created geographically senseless conferences (MD and Nebraska in the same league). But in an era when athletic success requires substantial revenue, MD had no choice.
LOL!!! Why don't you tell us how you really feel Toogs?
