President MD wanted a revenue neutral Athletic dept


With the Big 10, they got the revenue stream for facilities, and enough to reduce debt. Since he's from Illinois (the provost). He really didn't care about fans, or long term relationships with the other ACC schools. He wanted to maintain his relationship with his big 10 schools.

So MD fans, suck it up, The governor of Maryland did not squash Maryland on going to the big 10 (With MD debt in athletics, it could retreat back to the state, so state officials didn't care either. (very similar to rutgers)

Maryland and Rutgers : Similar programs, Great academics, and athletics are good for appearance but don't let it kill the school.
