One year after joining Big Ten, Maryland on the road to solvency and success

Coming from a league with national soccer powers, Cirovski feared that leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference after 61 years might hurt his program. The Big Ten had only one traditional soccer powerhouse, Indiana, and the second half of the conference schedule featured games in increasingly colder weather.

That seems so long ago. As Wednesday's anniversary of Maryland's switch to the Big Ten approaches, Cirovski's initial fears — and those of most skeptics — are gone, replaced by a collective confidence that the Terps have benefited financially and flourished competitively since the move.

"We went from one nice neighborhood to another great neighborhood," Cirovski said recently. "I can tell you nobody has been talking about the ACC around here for a while. You look at the success across the board, and it was just fantastic. Right now, everyone is extremely excited about the Big Ten."
