Assessing The Maryland To The Big 10 rumors


As all of you have heard by now the Maryland Terrapins are at the center of the conference realignment conversation again.

As first reported by InsideMDSports.com the rumors of Maryland potentially making the jump from the ACC to the Big 10 is looking more and more like a real possibility. Details on how this would all work due to the conference’s new $50 million exit fee are not yet known but at this moment there are some things we do know…

The Board of Regents will be meeting Monday morning at 9:30 to discuss the possibility of leaving the league for more Midwestern pastures.

Kevin Plank, CEO of Under Armour and Maryland alumnus, reportedly cashed in $65 million in Under Armour stock earlier this week.

People in and around the Maryland athletic were less than pleased with the “sweetheart deal” that commissioner Swofford gave Notre Dame for partial membership.

Maryland was one of two schools, FSU being the other, to vote against the raised exit fee.

Clearly, we will know more as the week bores on but in the meantime this is where we currently stand with regard to the Big Ten news that’s swept through Terp Nation this afternoon. As more becomes available we will have all your coverage here. Also, be on the lookout for a Zone read feature with our thoughts on the potential move.
