Maryland Minute 6.13.10 - Will the ACC Come Out of Realignment Untouched?

This man will try. Image via assets.espn.go.com

Tandler: Can the ACC Emerge from Realignment Unscathed?
Probably.

Good read from Tandler on the chances that one of the major pro-switching arguments never happens.

TAMU Very Possibly (Probably?) Headed to SEC
Which would probably keep the ACC safe from SEC raids, and give Tandler a very high probability of being right.

See: Rivalries Can Be Manufactured
Nebraska and Wisconsin are doing it. If this goes down, there needs to be a call out to Penn State.

Late Link Adde: Will Texas A&M Join in the SEC? If It Does, Will ACC Teams Follow? - Gobbler Country
A late update from F4H at Gobbler Country that will get you all caught up on SEC expansion and the odds that VT or Clemson will head out. And yes, academics will play a large part.

Hubert Favoring Nova, Pitt
He's still listing Maryland but I'm not optimistic at this point. - BG

Me: Good decision to not feel optimistic. Oh, and apparently Maryland is recruiting Jerel Scot, a swingman described by Rivals as "upper mid-major". If he impresses during the summer, Maryland may show further interest, but at the very least he's a name to keep an eye on.

Maryland Target Mike Taylor Impresses at Rumble in the Bronx
Taylor is probably on the level of Nick Faust.

New York City guard Mike Taylor has been getting a lot of run lately for the way he has played. There is no doubt that he can score, and Taylor proved it. He is a high level shooter who thrives on taking and making big shots. Still he needs to get better at getting by his man or setting up his teammates if he doesn't want to be categorized as a specialist at a high-major, but Taylor no doubt can fill it up.

Oh, and he's Lance Stephenson's arch-nemesis. So, sign me up.

Sim Bhullar is a Giant
Quite possibly literally. He's 7-4 and a rising junior. Maryland has been in contact. FWIW, he still looks a little awkward and has some some improvement to do skills-wise, but its tough to beat 7-4.
