Why does this matter? Because if Clemson & F$U were to leave the ACC for the Big 12, that's a huge chunk of revenue lost. You'd think that ESPN would want a new deal, we'd get less money and it would be hard for the ACC to stand on it's feet in terms of football, especially if the next domino to fall would be Georgia Tech and Va. Tech leaving for the SEC, which has been rumored. I'm extremely worried that if Clemson and FSU bolt, the ACC is all but dead and Maryland is going to find it hard finding a home in one of the remaining conferences, especially after reading the next story below. I'll have more on this tonight.
Lots of re-alignment talk at the Mothership recently, and here's a good piece from Jason Kirk attempting to rank the value of different schools. Maryland comes in at 47th, right above UConn and right below Rutgers. -Pete
My take - We did this big conference redraft a little while back. I thought Maryland was undervalued then and I think they're a little undervalued here.
ESPN's take on the Logan Aronhalt commit.
"Top-seeded Loyola is the most balanced team, but unseeded Maryland will be the toughest to push out of the Division I men's lacrosse final four." Sounds about right.
