@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.


RE: Realignment News Only: Post Sources & No Commentary - stever20 - 11-18-2012 07:32 PM

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.

(prewitt is Wash Post Md writer)

Quote:Kevin McGuire ‏@KevinOnCFB
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.

Maryland's board of regents unanimously approves move to Big Ten, source tells @ESPN

(not new, but I hadn't seen the word 'unanimous' anywhere else yet.)

@McMurphyESPN: Likely but not official - yet RT @Peder_Rice: On SportsCenter right now, they're saying Rutgers announcement tomorrow. Can you confirm?


RE: Realignment News Only: Post Sources & No Commentary - stever20 - 11-19-2012 11:03 AM

Just heard the Rutgers announcement tomorrow on ESPN Radio as well....

Apparently that has changed...

Pete Thamel ‏@SIPeteThamel
Ah ha. Someone tells truth. RT @alex_prewitt: Florestano confirmed that the Regents has approved the proposal. Denies it was unanimous.


RE: Realignment News Only: Post Sources & No Commentary - stever20 - 11-19-2012 11:35 AM

One top-level Big 12 school official tells me: "We need 2 more teams to have 4 nonconf games. It would help everybody’s records."
