Maryland's athletic program will likely rank in middle of Big Ten

So says a statistical analyst who examined ACC and Big Ten members' performance in the Directors' Cup from 2000-01 through last year. The Terrapins finished ahead of six Big Ten members, and trailed the other six. (Nebraska is counted as a Big Ten member even though in all but one of those seasons, it competed in the Big 12.) Note this refers to Maryland's overall program, not any individual sport.

Too bad Rutgers wasn't included in this, though according to this cumulative Directors' Cup graphic (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aoe3vYa_mD5UdGRibmp5U21kVVFCZzBXcHRSU0JIdVE#gid=0), the Scarlet Knights rank below all Big Ten members. They'll have a lot to work on in New Brunswick, but that doesn't mean it can't be done; Virginia Tech had some dismal programs when it entered the ACC in 2004, and in recent years many of them have become competitive within the conference.
