    Guess you missed the memo on Under Armor's CEO and Maryland alum/booster liquidating $65million in UA stock?

    Barron really doesn't want to go. The regents however may be a different story.

    You dont need to remind me Under Amor's founder is a Maryland Alum/ booster but did he ever say he was spending all his money on Maryland's athletics?? I didnt get that memo....What type of return on investment will he get?? I know this guy built his program off Maryland athletics but I highly doubt hes so thankful he will give them ALL his money, and even if he did I'm sure he would be pumped to have all his money spent on getting out of the ACC which maryland has built great bball rivalries with Duke and UNC just to get to the big ten to play northwestern, purdue, etc. in football?

    GO BOB! THIS IS WHY WE GOT YOU! GO GO GO!

    Not those teams. FSU, Louisville, ND, and Alabama (Why the **** not?)


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Finally, a move that makes sense for something other than the almighty dollar.

    You look at the Big East though, of those teams. Who has been D1 for more than 15 or so years? Louisville? Why should terrible schools like UConn, SF, Cincy, Temple, SMU, Memphis even be in this equation? All these schools have been CUSA or D2 schools in football forever.

    Hope So, Finally something that makes sense.

    Big East and Mountain West can be the 2 smaller regionalized conferences with the best of the others. Maybe have an alliance to play their champions, and be done.

    MWC vs CUSA was set to be REALLY good before this Big East coast to coast mess took off.

    You'd have had two 10-12 team leagues with BYU eventually being part of it, with a title game. That winner would have had a big time feel almost every season.

    Now if they do this both those leagues are so bloated from adding members when the teams left for the Big East. OLD DOMINION is scheduled to join the CUSA for all sports. The bottom rungs of this thing are almost as fascinating as the top.

    I think it sounds like they would welcome Boise State and San Diego back with open arms.
