I am doing a summer internship with the athletic department at a certain school joining the B1G from the ACC. This school is extremely excited to be joining the league and is rolling out the red carpet for the league. The school creamery is even debuting a new, 10 flavor ice cream in commemoration of joining their new league.
I know the response from Buckeye nation to Maryland (moreso Rutgers) has been somewhat negative. However, I have to say in my time with the UMD athletic department that the school will be an excellent fit for the B1G and will be solid competition in many sports. There is a strong commitment to winning and excellence Of course the B1G is taking advantage of the Buckeye name... the good guys will be Maryland's first B1G home football game, October 4.
Go Terps and Go Bucks!
