Conspiracy theorists can unite in the comments, with the Terrapins' impending move to the Big Ten as a possible reason for the snubbery. Another reason? The ACC is ridiculously deep this year, with 12 very good teams.

Last year, Maryland was picked to finish sixth in the conference, and they ended up finishing seventh (one game behind Florida State).

Unsurprisingly, no Maryland players are selected to the All-ACC team. Dez Wells had the best shot, but again, the ACC is ridiculously deep this year.
