Maryland cuts off athletic relations with Georgetown
Maryland AD Kevin Anderson is pissed that the Hoyas won't schedule the Terrapins in men's basketball, so he says Maryland will no longer schedule Georgetown in any sports.

Hate to say it, but the Hoyas position here is asinine. There is no good reason not to play Maryland in men's basketball. We should play every year, at the Verizon Center, with equal ticket distribution.

Maryland's Athletic Dept. hasn't been much smarter, Steve. The Randy Edsall hire was a real winner. Wasn't it? 07-coffee3

Seems like a petulant decision on Maryland's part.

I'm waiting for MD-Eastern Shore to stop playing Maryland in all sports because the Terrapins wont play them at home in basketball.

Embarrassing for both sides. Maryland and Georgetown should play every single year. Anderson and the GT athletic director need to put aside their egos and do what is right.

You're right. Unfortunately, it seems like no one in college sports puts aside their egos any more. Case in point: Texas won't schedule A&M in football. Incredibly stupid.

Why is this a surprise to anyone. There are examples like this everywhere.
Here is a short list maybe everyone else can add to the list.
Ohio State will not play Cincinnati in basketball on any frequest basis.
Kentucky will not play Cincinnati
Indiana will not play Cincy
These games would be great for the region
Cincy has tried to schedule all of these schools which are with in 100 miles of each other. The answer is thanks but no thanks.

Maryland is cash-strapped in athletics, is dropping eight sports and after years of not wanting a series, now, they're supposedly all for it. Unfortunately, you don't negotiate by threats.

Follow the money.

Schools that won't play UH (in state):

Texas (1, 3-game series '00-'02 since the SWC) not played since 2002.
Texas Tech (1, 2 game series '09-'10 since the SWC) last played in 2010.

But at least these guys have played us. Texas will never play us again. Tech may or may not depends on who you talk to. These guys however have not played us since the SWC fell apart.

Texas A&M: Not played since 1995.
Baylor: Not played since 1995.

Remains to be seen what TCU's stance will be. We have not played them since 2004 (with the exception of the 2007 Texas bowl) when they were in CUSA.

As far as basketball....

Texas: No games since 2000 and only 4 total since the SWC.
Texas A&M: No games since 2004 and only 2 total since the SWC.
Texas Tech: No games since 2003 and only 2 total since the SWC.
Baylor: No games since 2002 and that was the only game since the SWC.
TCU: Prior to this year we had played OOC only once since the SWC. Counting this year it is now up to 2....
