So remember over the last year when we and several others around the nation have debated about where Maryland ranks as an athletic program? Well, now we're getting the chance to find out what other bloggers across SB Nation think of the University of Maryland.
Since this time of year is mostly a dead time for college sports, our friends at BC Interruption organized with all of the college bloggers and decided to do a conference re-draft. Six bloggers were chosen to draft their own conferences. They can draft whoever they want for whatever reason. Do you want a conference with big revenues, then draft Texas. Do you want your conference to be the best competitive cheer conference out there? Then look no further than Maryland and Oregon. Here are the rules of the re-draft...
1 The six conference commissioners stat with a blank slate, in other words, the school they're affiliated with isn't part of the conference unless they draft said school.
2. Things that can be considered, aside from athletics, include: Academics, Co-eds, Weather/Desirability of Destination, Historic Success, Tradition, TV Revenue Potential, Ethics, Rivalries (two teams).
3. There are going to be six conferences and those six conferences can select and school they chose but the purpose is to create new conferences, not to add to or modify existing ones.
