@McMurphyESPN: Maryland votes on B1G Monday; Kevin Plank "100 percent" behind move, regent tells @ESPN http://t.co/5fDS7rWV

I felt this was an appropriate first post to the thread.

I think this is pretty pertinent:
@alex_prewitt: A majority is needed among the 16 Board of Regents during tomorrow morning's vote to accept Maryland's move to the Big 10.

According to the Maryland 247Sports report, an announcement on Maryland to the Big Ten is expected to be made at 3pm.

It is done. MD to the B1G.
