Breaking: Maryland to Take the Money and Run; Terps Prepare to Join Big 10

Rob Carr

Sources indicate the Maryland Board of Regents voted unanimously to accept an invitation to join the Big Ten Conference and leave the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Conference realignment, superconference creation, whatever you want to call it, it's claimed a charter member of the ACC today as all sources indicate Maryland has voted to leave the Atlantic Coast Conference and join the Big 10.

The mothership indicates it'll be a move that happens in 2014 and that Rutgers is expected to follow the Terps into the Big 10, giving the conference 14 teams and leaving the ACC possibly looking to pluck another member from the Big East like UConn or Louisville.

There's a press conference scheduled at 2:30PM Eastern, but barring some incredibly bizarro turn of events, looks like we'll be saying goodbye to one of Duke and UNC's "not our rival" staples.
