    I have mixed feelings. Big Ten has always been a midwest league. Maryland and Rutgers aren't midwest. Also, they will probably both be cupcake football teams for most of the others to feed on. Maryland has good basketball teams once in a while but Rutgers is pretty much bottom feeder there too.

    Dunno the financial upside of going to the Big Ten, but if all else is constant, I'd personally stay with the ACC cuz it's better for hoops and MD has good hoops sometimes.

    Word.

    But the Big Ten must be offering a much sweeter $$$$ deal if MD is siriusly considering paying that $50M exit fee to the ACC.

    Bottom line, I don't see how this is going to help the Big Ten become more competitive with the B12 and SEC in football like, say, Notre Dame would. B10 doesn't need any help to be more competitive in basketball.
