Maryland Varsity Sports vs. ACC

I know many people are upset that Maryland has to cut programs in order to work through a financially difficult time for the athletic department. Maryland currently has 25 varsity sports, which puts them with the third most programs in the ACC. Here is a list of total number of varsity sports per school:

Boston College: 29 teams

UNC: 26 teams

Maryland: 25 teams, proposed 19 teams

NC State: 23 teams

UVA: 23 teams

Duke: 20 teams

Clemson: 18 teams

FSU: 18 teams

VT: 16 teams

Wake Forest: 16 teams

GT: 15 teams

Miami: 15 teams

So even with the proposed cuts of six teams, Maryland would still rank 6th in the ACC for total varsity sports offered. I think this has been something that should have been implemented a long time ago. No offense to any student athlete, but unless your a main sport in this culture and your losing money, Maryland doesnt need to be offering it as a varsity sport. This will free up a lot of money to help budget the books. Hopefully the basketball team and the varsity Edsall team...he does own the right to the football program, get their stuff together and this will be forgotten.

Big game tomorrow, Turge & Co. BEAT THE TIDE....ROLL TERPS!
