Rumors are swirling about Maryland joining the Big Ten.
Word is there are serious negotiations for Maryland, a charter member of the ACC, to exit the basketball-centric conference and join the Midwest-centric Big Ten. Geographically Maryland playing Iowa doesn’t make a lot of sense, but financially the B1G offers a lot of cash.
If this thing happens, dollars will be the driver. But there are other reasons too. It’s too early to know, but most Terps fans do not like the idea. Expect much more on this as it unfolds.
One thing we know for sure: Legends and Leaders are the two worst conference division names in history. If Maryland does join the Big Ten, maybe the Terps can demand that be changed.
