Terps can leave the ACC, but fans' interest won't follow

November 20, 2012

The University of Maryland has made the crass, purely mercenary decision to leave the ACC ("UM to leave ACC for Big Ten in '14," Nov. 20). Baltimore basketball fans only can only hope that our local broadcasters are equally crass and mercenary and will continue to carry the great ACC basketball rivalries we have enjoyed for so many years. As UM follows the money, let's hope Comcast follows the ratings.

I suppose I wish Maryland luck in Nebraska, but I don't really care. I'll be watching Duke, NC State, Wake, Carolina and the rest of the ACC play the best basketball in the country ... if I can.
