B1G Excitement

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.

Done Deal: Maryland To Join B1G

There is a press conference scheduled at 2:30PM ET today (spoiler alert: the Big Ten Network is carrying it live) to officially announce that Maryland is joining the B1G Conference. I've made my feelings on the issue clear in the previous thread so I won't rehash them here.  I'll just summarize my feelings with the following:  you giv [...] Read More »

A Reasonable Maryland To B1G Thread

There a million opinions floating around about Maryland's impending switch to the B1G. In my opinion, it all comes down to William "Slappy" Kirwan's influence on the Board of Regents. Personally, I think Kirwan will block the deal. I've never met the man, but every opportunity he's had to do something bold in his career, he's refrained fr [...] Read More »

Maryland vs LIU Thread

Before getting into tonight's game, I'll briefly address the rumors swirling throughout Twitter about Maryland joining the Big10.  Although, until there is something definitive, it seems pointless to waste time thinking or writing about it.  I'll just say that it would be an odd move to make now considering that the ACC just raised the ex [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Moorhead State Thread

Terps open the home slate tonight vs Moorhead State.  Moorhead appears to be frisky (senior laden, make lots of 3's); but this is still Cupcake City for the Terps.  I'll be disappointed with anything less than a 20 point win here. I'm interested to see if the Terps are able to improve their shooting performance from Friday.  Faust [...] Read More »

Terps Come Up Short But Look Good Doing It

Some quick thoughts in no particular order: Whoever said it in an earlier thread, was right:  Charles Mitchell IS the new Charles Barkley.  Kid was born to rebound.  LOVE HIM Seth Allen will start at PG before the new year.  Kid is a baller.  He knows how to feed the paint.  He's quick and can shoot.  Pe'sho [...] Read More »

Marylands Tips Off Basketball Season In Style Vs Kenucky Tonight

What a night we have in front of us!  Win or lose, blowout or close game, it is just great to be on the national stage again.  What's more, the Terps get to debut their new prized guard Dezmine Wells not to mention the Brooklyn-esque gray faux flannel uniforms.  Fresh off being cleared by the NCAA, Wells instantly becomes one of [...] Read More »

Maryland - Georgia Tech Thread

The Terps will attempt to redefine the term "Linebacker U" as a freshman reserve linebacker will start at quarterback. How we got here has been well documented.  It will either be a legendary moment or a laughable one. Let's hope for the former. [...] Read More »

2012-13 Kicks Off With IUP Exhibition

To paraphrase the great Charles Barkley, I don't know anything about Indiana University of Pennsylvania but they in trouble.  At least I hope they are. Maryland begins tonight what I think will be one of the most intriguing seasons in recent history.  The Terps finished last season with a 17-15 record and embodied the term mediocrity.& [...] Read More »
