Re: OT: Maryland to the Big Ten
You are right, the Virginia schools dominate the media coverage in the DC area when it comes to college football. Maryland does not receive a lot of coverage. IMO fans would rather follow and watch professional football than U of M football. I would say the loss of an ACC school in this area will not hurt. The rivalry between UVA and U of M is there, but it is not as intense as UVA and Va Tech. I think UVA fans dislike the Hokies much more than the Terps.
I don't believe bringing the Big Ten to the DC market is going to do anything great. As I pointed out, I think football fans in this area are NFL fans instead of college fans. I don't see nearly as much Terrapins merchandise worn by people as Redskins or Ravens gear.
