were pumped up!  I live in the DC area and was listening to the sports station for a while this afternoon while students were being interviewed.  The fact that Maryland is joining the Big Ten made them really pumped about this game, and they were all enthusiastically predicting a Maryland win.

I suppose he has a reason to be salty. He built/is Duke basketball. Maryland, by leaving th ACC, has really opened up the possibility of UVA, GT, and UNC leaving as well. That would kill the academic cache of the conference.

Duke's fortune is tied to UNC. They will fade (even the basketball) into irrelevance if they're separated.

Yeah, that was really childish. He has also said recently that he has no intention of scheduling Maryland once they are gone. For a team that has always claimed Maryland is not a rivalthey sure are taking it poorly that maryland is leaving.
