Former ACC commissioner Gene Corrigan said Sunday night that he is "absolutely flabbergasted" to hear that Maryland is close to leaving the league for the Big Ten after a nearly 60-year association. "It's historic, all right. It's shocking to me," the 84-year-old Corrigan said from his home in Keswick, Va. "I don't get it. I don't get it at all. It just blows me away. They're a charter member of the ACC -- they're not just a member. Virginia wasn't even an original member. " Corrigan, whose association with the ACC dates back nearly as long as Maryland's, said that the ACC has treated Maryland well from a financial standpoint "because they haven't done a good job raising funds themselves.

The most interesting weekend of the lacrosse season is coming up and this year the Memorial Day scene is doubly compelling.There's the obvious question going into an NCAA Final Four weekend: Which team, on Memorial Day at Penn's Franklin Field in Philadelphia, is going to be crowned Division I champion?In Saturday's semifinals, No. 1 seed Syracuse will play No. 5 Johns Hopkins, and No. 2 North Carolina goes against No. 3 Princeton. The winners will meet Monday for the title.The other thing that has generated unusual interest is: Who will succeed just retired Jim Adams as coach at Virginia?

RALEIGH, N.C. -- When Gene Corrigan became the Atlantic Coast Conference's commissioner three years ago, it had a reputation of being an "old boy league," strong on tradition but not progressive. He changed that in a hurry.First, he struck a unique deal that sent the ACC football champion to the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando at least once every two years, assuring the conference of New Year's Day exposure. Next came the ACC-Big East basketball challenge series.The biggest move of all came last week when ACC officials responded to a recommendation from Corrigan and voted to expand the league by adding Florida State University.

People are beginning to change their minds about giving an automatic berth to a Western school in the 12-team NCAA Division I men's lacrosse tournament.Some have been saying it's silly to invite a team with no chance (and to leave out a school that might have one) only to have the westerners annihilated in the first round.Last year Michigan State, in the name of spreading the sport, was granted the privilege of coming to the Carrier Dome to lose, 28-7, to Syracuse. It was the most lopsided game in tournament history.

The Major Soccer League, struggling to survive just two years ago, is rejuvenated and then some. The sport looks to be on the verge of a boom period.Pittsburgh re-entered the league yesterday. Dallas, which talked of quitting, may yet be saved, giving the league nine teams next year.And the push is on to bring in Buffalo. Commissioner Earl Foreman would be delighted with a 10-team league.Also, Foreman and Blast owner Ed Hale are meeting this week with people from the National Professional Soccer League in an attempt to merge the two indoor leagues.
