Bits & Pieces: Conference jumping is latest effect of big money on college athletics
I wonder if Maryland's latest athletic recruits knew that their new school would be changing conferences? I cannot understand all this jumping. The University of Maryland will now go to the Big Ten which will probably become the Big 20 by next month, while the Big East and the Atlantic Coast Conference will be left to die. Maryland, in my opinion, will not be successful in the Big Ten except in terms of monetary gain. And the $50 million that the school has to cough up to leave the ACC might have been enough to sustain the programs that they cut earlier this year.
