Late in the day and yesterday's news, but at this point I'll take anything to distract from basketball.
We'll try to keep the BC links to a minimum here, for obvious reasons.
IMS: Big Ten expansion "buzzing again"
Virginia is supposedly "most likely to join" and Georgia Tech is "still in the mix", but the real news is that UNC has an offer. Getting the Tar Heels out of the ACC is going to be a hell of a task, but if the Big Ten can grab Virginia and UNC, giving a substantial, geographically contiguous eastern flank ... that's a really attractive proposition. If a move is going to be made, you'd assume they'd try to do it after Maryland resolves its court case (so the others know what they're getting into) but before UMD and Rutgers officially join up, if at all possible.

N.C. State's pro: farms, son. Got a laugh out of me.
Morning review: Where do the Terps go from here? - WaPo
Hey, we said we'd keep the links to a minimum, not have none of them.
Anyway, presumably to play Clemson at home on Saturday. Don't think it's worth getting too caught up in the road ahead; we learned our lesson with that already. This team will have more ups, and they'll probably have more downs. With them, whatever will be will be.
That said, Nick Faust isn't wrong: if this team wants to be anything, they need to mature sooner or later. I think it's probably time to stop waiting around for that to happen, though.
Maryland building depth at receiver - ESPN
And what depth it is. We all already knew this, but the national types are picking it up, too.
More on Jared Cohen, Maryland's first 2014 commit
He's the first commitment who'll never have the chance to play in the ACC. Congratulations, kid.
