Today Maryland officially announced that the they are going to be moving away from the Atlantic Coast Conference and into the Big Ten Conference. Personally as a fan I don’t like the move at all but I definitely understand why they did it. Though I have noticed an almost divided Terps nation right now between the people who want us to go and those who want us to stay. Those who want to go can’t possibly understand why we should want to stay in an ACC that was never the same after VT/BC/Miami came a long time ago and people who want to stay can’t understand (or maybe they can but don’t agree with it) why the Terps would choose to get more money rather than stick with the tradition of the ACC and all that it represents (opinions will differ on that front).
Today at around 10 am former Xavier guard Dez Wells announced his intentions to transfer to Maryland to play basketball. His choices seemed to range from Kentucky to Oregon to Memphis to us and after his night at Bentley’s on Saturday night in College Park it seemed like he was destined to come to the Terps (his twitter said he was going to Bentley’s at least). While this whole process really didn’t take very long, it is a pretty huge pickup for Maryland.
The Maryland Terps 2012 basketball schedule (men’s obviously) was released this week and while we pretty much already knew our competitors, it’s still interesting to see how their schedule is layed out. Here it is:
|Date||Opponent / Event||Location||Time / Result|
|11/02/12||vs. Indiana Univ. (PA)||College Park, Md.||TBA|
