I am neutral an UMDs decision to leave the ACC. Primarily because, IMO, the ACC stopped being the ACC I grew up with when Swofford and friends added BC, VA Tech, and The U and tried to turn the ACC into a football power conference and failed miserably.
ACC was at its best as a basketball power. And UMD playing Duke twice a year in basketball was must see TV for me. Now UMD might not play Duke every year with the addition of Pitt and 'cuse.
So why shouldn't UMD leave? The Big10 has its own network, ACC has a deal with ESPN. The Big10 IS a top flight conference in BOTH football and basketball, the ACC is on the verge of being a bloated joke.
Will just have to see how things shake out.
