to join the BIG10....I am about to vomit. First, Randy Edsall, second cutting sports while paying a mediocre coach 12 million for 6 years, KA, ughh!!!!! This is a train wreck...
Sounds real close to being done.
I'm coming around on it. It's not the ACC we founded, the B10's TV deal completely laps the ACC's plus more RutgersAl!
me too. this just ruined my night.
If the Big Ten broke apart it would bother me greatly so I understand. However the failed leadership of the ACC is in large part to blame in my opinion.
Really hard to say leadership failed. Outside of the moves they made what more could they have done? Swofford isn't the one losing football games.
And for those upset, just remember this was the last year of annual H&H with Duke and we haven't played annual H&H with Carolina and State for years. Until ND joined we were losing our H&H with UVA and we still might lose it.
Would we have enough big ten loot to can and eat edsalls contract? If so....im down.
Probably not right away but future Edsall's will be able to be bought out.
sounds like from the article that LOH and KA are really behind this whole thing. Kirwan is the last chance of stopping this I guess, but he is the same guy who nixed Hathaway from UCONN.
I'm not happy about it, but its not as big of a deal since the ACC added VT, BC, ND, Miami, Syracuse and Pitt.
we are getting absolutely shat upon on twitter right now.
We are a basketball school through and through. Thats what these dumbasses (Loh, Anderson, Rangoon) who been at college park for 5 minures dont understand.
As long as the ACC has dook and unc it will always be the best BB conference
Fuck this shit.
We are in such a fiscal hole that ka and loh would join the mountain west if it meant tons of cash....what a cluster.
If it's ONLY about dollars and cents in the short to near term, you go.
Otherwise, there's no other reason now that the ACC isn't on the verge of collapse like it could have been back in the days where FSU and others were thinking of leaving.
I really don't want this to happen.
Same. I'm sadder than I expected, though.
If we are thinking if leaving, don't you think the other school that voted against the buyout are thinking of leaving
Yeah, can't wait for that exciting home game vs. Nebraska!
At least this happened after I graduated, or else it would have ruined my athletics experience
I think it's kind of unrespectful- Ovie
Classic Maryland leadership, wait til the buyout rises to $50 milion, then go
How different is Nebraska from BC, Miami or VT?
You people are clueless. College football is going to be a 4 conference system and we are now IN. Big 10 basketball is not as big a down grade as you would like to believe.
I live in Maryland and have to watch Maryland games on the internet. We aren't in the JV. We are on the freshmen team. We can't leave for a real conference soon enough.
Can't leave without an invitation.
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
How can anyone criticize the leadership here? We are being proactive and leaving before Clemson and FSU screw us over and leave us in a no real football conference. There is real initiative being taken here. This is the most leadership these people have probably ever shown in their lives.
