After the game, Mike Davis said he had called Maryland assistant Dave Dickerson and asked him how to go after Duke. In spite of a gentleman's agreement among ACC schools not to do that, Dickerson did. This followed Gary Williams hallway tutorial for Herb Sendek on how to beat Duke - after Maryland lost to State!
They are not the same thing, of course. In-conference is no big deal and just part of what you deal with. And really, in a sense we could care less that Maryland felt the need to do that with/for Indiana.
But the Terps like to talk about how they don't feel like they're respected in the ACC. Sometimes, there's a reason for that.
