B1G Excitement

11/19/2012 8:34:26 PM As an homage to our new conference namesake as well as an attempt to get everyone on board; I present 10 reasons to get excited about Maryland joining the B1G:

10.  We get our chance at revenge against Penn State for all those defeats not to mention the 70-7 drubbing that the disgraced one hung on us in 1993. Remember after this class graduates, PSU will STINK.

9.  Nebraska, Michigan, and Ohio State games at Byrd.  Say what you want but that is some serious tradition coming to College Park.  It beats FSU, Miami, and Clemson any day.

8.  The "Leaders" division.  Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, a soon-to-be feeble Penn State, Wisconsin and Ohio State.  It's not an exaggeration to say that Maryland may be the third best team in this division by the time 2014 rolls around.

7.  Road trips to Madison and Ann Arbor.  Partying in Mad-Town?  Terps playing in the Big House?

6.  The B1G Tournament in Chicago.

5.  Road games in Assembly Hall, Bloomington IN.

4.  Big Ten Network.  No more ESPN3!

3. Expanding our basketball recruiting footprint to Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit.

2. Avenging Greivis for what Korie Lucious did.

1. The Rose Bowl.  The Terps could play in the Rose Bowl one day.  Just think about that.
