Maryland already knocking Little Brother

I like Maryland more already.

An analysis of the expansion from Maryland's SBNation blog, TestudoTimes, declares the following.

And if you think Maryland doesn't fit in because they're a basketball school, Indiana, Michigan State*, and Illinois say hi.

State has been better at basketball than they have at football for some time, but try telling a state fan that they're a basketball school and enjoy the livid, fuming tirade that ensues. Good show, Maryland. It's like prison. Shank a guy on the first day, and then things will be alright.

*emphasis mine.

"I could certainly get used to going to Bloomington and beating Indiana in their pomp, or extracting yearly revenge on Michigan State for the shot that ended Greivis Vasquez's career." - from the TestudoTimes

I like how this guy thinks. I have to say, I would chuckle if a Maryland fan brought out a sign in  East  Lansing with a nice, snarky reference to Korie Lucious, who shot that three-pointer. Perhaps something of the "Have You Seen This Man?" variety....

When I was a kid, the only sport in which MSU was arguably better than us was hockey, and then, fortunately, Red Berenson showed up and put an end to that nonsense.

I have absolutely nothing to offer in this thread but damn I've wanted that particular font in the past and couldnt get it so now that it seems to be mandated here i'm in.

It's glorious.

Correct, I'm not sure why I would have an inferiority complex, or why you'd think I'd have one.  You're basically only extending a perfect streak I have going, which is that every single encounter I've had with a Maryland fan has been horrible.  Talk about two fanbases that deserve each other.

That's a school established by one of the greatest minds of the 18th century. Maryland, that's a school famous for Len Bias, Under Armor and Gary Davis. Big Ten fans are gonna literally be blown away in College Park. I'd much rather see Michigan play at UVA's Scott stadium. This is coming from someone with an affection for the Beltway. UVA is a way better fit for the B1G.

You see what Delany has reduced us to? We're saying that schools that would never be considered a good fit for the Big Ten would be a better fit than f*cking Maryland.

I'm beginning to think that Jim Delany hates us.

Whatever. I'm still pissed that we're adding these two mediocre schools. I feel blindsided.

Maryland and Rutgers are not, and never will be, legitimate members of this conference. They are interlopers, as far as I'm concerned.
