LOL @ Prisbell.

There is nothing quite like a Nebraska-Maryland b-ball game in mid-Feb. Electric atmosphere for a rivalry that dates back five minutes.

With the move, #Maryland becomes the most recent #BigTen school to win a national title in hoops (2002).
There is nothing quite like Eric Prisbell covering a Nebraska-Maryland b-ball game in mid-Feb. Electric writing for an electric atmosphere that dates back five minutes.
Kind of like the MD-Pitt rivalry?
Scott Van Pelt @notthefakeSVP
Will discuss the Md move on @SVPandRussillo I grew up in the ACC. Like many, I'm nostalgic. But the ACC I grew up with is long gone.
LOL x 100 if the ACC completely whores itself out to add basketball-only schools like a third-rate conference.
Dave Glenn: ACC now will accelerate debate over UConn/Louisville (among others) & revisit idea of considering basketball schools (e.g. G'town) too.
haters going to hate.
Soccer can't be THAT pissed the ACC is obviously better but the Big ten isn't sisters of the poor in soccer
Similar to the atmosphere at those MD-BC and Md-Miami games.
Go away, KA!
So apprarently Loh made the decision completely on his own.
"I did it to guarantee the long-term future of Maryland athletics," university President Wallace Loh told The Diamondback of the decision to move. "No future president will have to worry about cutting teams or that Maryland athletics will be at risk."
Football pays for soccer.
It's fantastic to read Wake fans telling us that we have no fans.
There is sooooooo much jealousy on the Pit/PackPride right now.

"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
I think SVP has the right take on this. As much as I wanted out, I am definitely feeling nostalgic right now. But the ACC had already changed so much, and nostalgia doesn't pay the bills. Plus, I feel like the ACC was doomed anyway with FSU and Clemson so itchy to get out. At least now we are landing in a great situation rather than in the leftover conference with the remnants of the Big East and ACC.
i cant wait for our first conference game on the 27th!
LOL...if they do that they can kiss FSU & Clemson goodbye.
Andy Katz is on point with this whole thing as usual
Eric Prisbell @EricPrisbell
That said, the Big Ten is laden with excellent, excellent basketball coaches, and from that standpoint Mark Turgeon is a perfect fit.
@TorreySmithWR: It's official UMD is a BIG 10 school http://t.co/xIbD9yNZ
Why always Boris?
What time is SVP on today?
I did it to guarantee the long-term future of Maryland athletics," university President Wallace Loh told The Diamondback of the decision to move. "No future president will have to worry about cutting teams or that Maryland athletics will be at risk."
The Big Ten has its own cable network — the Big Ten Network, which will air the university's announcement at 2:30 p.m. — which is responsible for much of its revenue. Loh said the conference's forward-thinking approach was a critical factor in the decision.
"[The Big Ten] is going national because of a phenomenon," he said. "Attendance among college-aged students is dropping. The reason is because this generation is completely wired, and they are getting their education and entertainment on tablets and mobile devices. Everyone thinks you make your money in seats. You make it on eyeballs on a screen."
Can we get our Swim Team back now?
