That guy totally stole my haircut.
You got the "bald with a mop on top" too?
Bitches love my new haircut
I bet. They can use your hair to clean the floor as they make you a sammich. Win-win if you ask me.
If they don't? Fvcking skanks.
Well, we don't want to be in a conference with declining rust belt states anyways.
Why would the B1G want Maryland?
Pretty lackluster in both the football and basketball. B1G can do better than Maryland if they are looking at expansion.
Good then it's mutual. B1G doesn't want to give their abundance of money to schools like Maryland, they would contribute nothing to anyone.
To help the league in lacrosse? Wait, we don't have one. Bottom line, UMD brings soccer, field hockey and women's basketball. That doesn't help.
You do realize the basketball program won a championship this decade and is one of the most profitable in the country when they win? They would become a top 4 program in the Big 10 once they join. A few down years after a coach retires didn't change anything. As for football, not as good obviously, but it brings great recruiting grounds and Kevin Plank backs the program.
Plus, this is all about Tv markets and being a large research university, which Maryland brings quite an impact.
Top four? Really? Indiana, OSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin. At best, six.
We don't need basketball.
Maryland is a much better program than Michigan or Wisconsin.
Could have fooled me. Certainly not now. Hell, I think Purdue is better, despite the rough start this year. IMO, UMD men's hoops is more like Illinois - not a top six, or even seven in this league right now.

Then you don't really get basketball or understand the trajectory of our program and the upside here.

You should probably stop posting on the matter because you clearly don't know whats going on. Im sure the Big 10 is just going to invite a school that will cut into its revenue sharing for shits and giggles!
Obviously if they invite us they know that we would increase revenues for the entire conference. You get a huge media market, we fall in line academically, etc. Pretty sure the smart folks making these decisions know what they are doing.
And this isn't just coming from that PSU guy fwiw
I get basketball alot. I also understand the POTENTIAL of your program. That said, to say UMD would be the fourth best men's basketball program in the BIG is utterly foolish. I see your program right now as I do Illinois. Long term, you are better. But, you aren't better than Michigan, Sparty, OSU, Indiana for starters.
Based on the past couple years of course not, this year and going forward however we are a top 20 team and better. Its not utterly foolish to put us in the top tier of the conference.
I hope it's true....I'd like to have UMD in the conference. Brings more of an Eastern presence, solidifies the footprint...and there's good potential to be better in football....and the basketball is a good add.
Maryland with Turgeon would be one of the three best, if not the best, basketball teams in the conference come 2014 if they make the jump....
I look forward to our new big 10 overlords.
No. This is jtp's doing. He's kept me around for his bizarre HOF resume.
Smotrycz is going to pwn you clowns so hard, its gonna be great.
Talk is cheap..
I think Michigan and OSU should move to the SEC or something if this happens. Maryland and Rutgers will make this conference an even bigger joke.
