Web Run: 'Maryland's loss won't hurt ACC'

The ACC without Maryland is like a car without a spare tire. Life goes on unabated. About all the Terrapins have brought to the ACC table over the past decade is tradition, and if that doesn't matter to Maryland, why should it matter to the ACC?

Footprint Podcast: Maryland joins the Big Ten
Adam Gold * WRALSportsFan.com



"One can argue Maryland is abandoning more than six decades of history and tradition, and there ought to be more attention paid to that. But what Maryland mostly is leaving behind is the logic that has dictated through the decades that athletes who grow up reading about the ACC and hearing about the ACC on the radio and seeing kids wearing the T-shirts of ACC members in the school hallways—those athletes are going to aspire to play in the ACC."

- Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy



Maryland's loss won't hurt ACC
Luke DeCock * News & Observer
The ACC without Maryland is like a car without a spare tire. Life goes on unabated. About all the Terrapins have brought to the ACC table over the past decade is tradition, and if that doesn't matter to Maryland, why should it matter to the ACC?
