Did you guys hear how loud the Maui crowd sung out Victory Song a few years ago? I didn't realize we would bring the Maui market to the Big 10 too!
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Listen to the cheers guys, MD definitely has a significant chunk of the New Jersey fanbase.
Maryland defeated then #10 Rutgers 34-24 on their own field. Ralph Friedgen gives an interview while the Terps and Chris Turner celebrate.
Did I mention we have a significant portion of the Atlanta market?
Joe Burns had a tough night. Mike Tirico with the great call. Terps go 6-0 as Ralph Friedgen defeats his old team. Note that it was not Aaron Thompson with the hit, but true freshman Randy Starks. A highlight in Fridge's career
We have the Raleigh Durham market place.
After missing an extra point, Nick Novak hands Phillip Rivers his 4th straight loss vs. Maryland. The Terps win the game and go on to a victorious Gator Bowl.
Well i think you are smart enough to realize the difference between the crowd at a single game, and the crowd at the BE tourney in NYC. WVU fans are not going to be able to get all the tickets to the garden for the BE tourney. lol.
there are 16 teams plus many locals like to attend. plus spike lee who got to endure country roads before he could exit the building.
Many of Pitt's 58 "rushing attempts" were the result qb Tino Sunseri fleeing the pocket like a man whose clothes were on fire.
Yes but WVU gets a certain ticket allottment for the BE Tourney, and fans of teams who lose typically sell their tickets because they don't want to watch other teams play. I'm sure a ton of Duke fans showed up to watch UNC/FLST after they lost in the semifinals.
I'm starting to the Nola has never been to a sporting event or attempted to obtain tickets to one. Ever.
I think Nola believes that residents of WV never leave WV. Those fans that just show up to root for WVU just happen to live in that metropolitan area.
Well, he had tickets to that one game but it was raining too hard.

After 40 years away, Pacific has rejoined the WCC.
That's a very good move for Pacific.
Schools that have never made the NCAA Tournament — the 2014 edition http://wp.me/plDgR-1WQ
Pacific brings the WCC up to 10 schools with BYU still there. I wasn't sure if this was a sign of an impending BYU move, but the WCC would be stable at 10 teams. If they add an 11th, I would start to think that BYU is on the move. But I don't see an 11th team joining anytime soon.
Georgia State to the Sun Belt?
Georgia State and Sun Belt have had informal discussions about the Panthers joining the Sun Belt, possibly as early as 2013. Georgia State began football in 2010 and will play its first season in the Colonial Athletic Association this fall
Rumors, not sure how solid, are floating around about UNC and Duke being offered SEC admittance.
Duke and UNC would receive hoops home & homes with UK and Florida each year...I don't see why they wouldn't go....
Why leave a conference which caters to you at every turn? Not happening.
And 9/11 was a government conspiracy.
That's a 4/1 rumor if I ever saw one.
Besides the April Fool's timing, why would the SEC want Duke?
Last spring/summer back when the whole realignment thing was going on Clay Travis was talking up the UNC/Duke rumor. He said it would make the SEC the best football and basketball conference. Duke/Vanderbilt would also give the SEC the two best private schools in the south which would help silence the "poor academics" critics of the SEC.
I think that was before A&M/Mizzou ended up in the SEC. I'm not sure the rest of the conference is interested in expanding again.
I can see NCST leaving for the SEC. I don't think UNC/Duke will ever leave the ACC and if they do I think it'd be for the B10 who would gladly take them. VT would be the other team but I'm not sure they'd leave the ACC. They have national prominence thanks to constantly winning the ACC. That prominence will be diminished finishing 4th or 5th in the SEC.
An independent online publication covering Duke University sports
"That prominence will be diminished finishing 7th or 10th in the SEC."
I was just being nice.
Georgia State is expected to join the Sun Belt Conference and accept an invitiation from the league as early as Thursday, college football industry sources told CBSSports.com.
Georgia State, which has been in the Colonial Athletic Association since 2005, would join the Sun Belt beginning in the 2013 season.
Last week, CBSSports.com reported the Panthers were a “leading candidate” to join the Sun Belt in the “coming weeks.”
However, that timeline has been accelerated because the Colonial Athletic Association has discussed increasing its exit fees from $250,000 to an amount “significantly higher” CAA commissioner Tom Yeager told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Georgia State is expected to accept an invitation to join the Sun Belt Conference after the league's presidents voted Monday to issue an invitation to the school. The Panthers, who have been in the Colonial Athletic Association, would join the Sun Belt in 2013.

Georgia State's called a press conference for tomorrow, as has the Sun Belt, to officially announce that the Panthers are moving.
This will put the Sun Belt back at 12, 11 for football (once South Alabama finishes moving up and, presumably, Georgia State does the same). Have to wonder who, if anybody, the CAA is going to look at to replace them.
