AOL – Maryland is leaving the ACC for the Big Ten, according to multiple reports Monday. The university’s Board of Regents unanimously approved the move Monday morning, according ESPN.com’s Brett McMurphy. Big East member Rutgers is also expected to leave for the Big Ten, giving the conference 14 schools. Maryland has been an ACC member since 1953 and has established rivalry games with Duke and North Carolina, among others. But the decision came down to money and football. Maryland can’t sell out the luxury boxes at the newly renovated Tyser Tower inside Byrd Stadium, and only 35,244 fans showed up Saturday on senior day for a matchup against No. 10 Florida State.
What do you mean Maryland couldn’t sell out luxury boxes at their stadium for Senior Day on Saturday? You’re telling me only 35K showed up against #10 Florida State? How could that be? Do you think it has something to do with starting a linebacker at quarterback? Or being 4-7 and getting steamrolled by everyone they play? Na couldn’t be. Just move the whole thing over to the Big 10 and shit will turn around. I mean we still got the sickest jerseys ever right. Just keep churning em out in all different shades of red and yellow and black and nobody will even notice the product on the field. Watch out Big 10, here comes the most epic cleats and gloves patterns ever.
