Tuesday, the University of Maryland officially joins the Big Ten athletic conference. This is a winning moment for both athletics and academics at Maryland. In stadiums, arenas and on the Big Ten Network, new and challenging match-ups will excite Maryland players, fans and supporters. The Terps will compete at the highest level when they play against Ohio State's Buckeyes, Michigan's Wolverines, Penn State's Nittany Lions and other Big Ten teams. We will welcome to Maryland and to the Baltimore-Washington corridor the thousands of Big Ten fans who travel with their teams, as well as the tens of thousands of Big Ten alumni who already live in the area.

Penn State took the lead in the first minute and never trailed, and an own goal by visiting No. 12 Hofstra led to an 8-7 upset win for the Nittany Lions on Saturday. The victory gave Penn State a winning record in its last regular season in the Colonial Athletic Association before a move to the Big Ten. It also made the Nittany Lions (7-6, 3-2), who cannot play in the CAA tournament, eligible for an at-large NCAA tournament bid. Attackman Mike Sutton scored the first two goals of the game for Penn State, and attackman Shane Sturgis scored three times in two minutes to help build a 6-4 halftime lead over the Pride (10-4, 4-1)

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. - The Atlantic Coast Conference has reached a critical moment in its 50-year history and now has a big decision to make. Do the nine members want to cling to one of the richest traditions in college athletics or embark on a bold - but perhaps risky - future? That decision - to expand or not to expand - certainly will be a major topic of discussion when the ACC begins its annual spring meetings today in Amelia Island. The ACC has held discussions with the University of Miami, a member of the Big East Conference, about becoming the league's 10th member.

John Haley knew he was taking something of a gamble when, in 2006, he chose to play football at Temple. The Owls, at the time, were coming off an 0-11 season, their 15th consecutive losing record. They had recently been booted from the Big East Conference and were playing an independent schedule. They also weren't offering him a scholarship, just a chance to join newly hired coach Al Golden's walk-on program, the Local 215. Haley, who now starts at outside linebacker, seems to have made the right call.

PHILADELPHIA - Shed no tears for the Big East Conference as it gets plundered by the Atlantic Coast Conference. Just in case any of you had any delusions that college sports are about purity, fun and honest competition, you're kidding yourselves. It's a cold-hearted, calculating, bottom-line business. For many years, the Big East has specialized in being cold-hearted. What goes around comes around, and in losing its two premier football schools, the University of Miami and Virginia Tech, to the ACC, the Big East is getting what it deserves.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland's departure from the Atlantic Coast Conference hit a lot of longtime Terps fans hard this weekend. Many who have been coming here for years and witnessed two of the school's three ACC tournament championships, in 1984 and 2004, were sad to say goodbye to Greensboro Coliseum. Me, too. After spending years covering the Big East Conference tournament at Madison Square Garden, I felt like the Eddie Albert character on the '60s sitcom “Green Acres” when I went to cover my first ACC tournament, in 1986.

SYRACUSE , N.Y. -- It was just like old times Saturday for Syracuse and Pittsburgh. But instead of fighting for supremacy in their old league, the Big East Conference, the Orange and Panthers were battling for bragging rights in their new league, the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Both teams entered the game with 4-0 records in the ACC. Pitt had won 14 of its previous 19 games against Syracuse , and five of its previous six at the Carrier Dome .

After the Loyola women lost to James Madison two weeks ago, Greyhounds coach Jen Adams did not mince words. With their second straight loss to an unranked team - the 9-8 overtime loss to the Dukes coming three days after a stunning 10-9 loss at Delaware - the Greyhounds were out of the running for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, she said. That meant they would have to win the Big East Conference tournament to get back to the NCAAs for the third straight year and they needed to turn the corner in a big hurry.

William & Mary, Sept. 1 : Pssst, nobody wants to talk about it, but Maryland enters the season with an eight-game losing streak hanging around -- like a nagging cold -- from last year. No win is guaranteed, but the largely inexperienced Terps and their coaches are likely happy to open the year against a Colonial Athletic Association team rather than a major-conference team like California, which routed Maryland, 52-13, in the 2009 opener. William & Mary lost its all-time rushing leader, Jonathan Grimes, and is picked seventh in the CAA by the media.
