University of Maryland in the Big 10

Aug 19, 2014

In 2012, the University of Maryland announced it would leave the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big 10. At the time, the change was criticized by those who claimed the decision was motivated solely by financial interests. Since then, much of the negativity over the move has diminished. But challenges regarding the transition remain. We'll look at how the school is faring during its transition, and what the future holds for Terrapin Athletics as we head into fall football season. Our guests: WYPR sports commentator Milton Kent; Aaron Kasinitz, sports editor for University of Maryland newspaper The Diamondback; and Andy Coppens, publisher of the sports reporting website 

Beginning this fall, Terps football will compete in the Big 10.
