COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - The University of Maryland's decision to stay in the Atlantic Coast Conference or join the Big Ten comes down to tradition versus money.
Given the plight of the school's struggling athletic program, the Terrapins' stature as a charter member of the ACC may not mean as much as the prospect of playing a home football game against, say, Ohio State, and being part of a league that generates more revenue.
The Board of Regents is scheduled to meet Monday to discuss the Big Ten's invitation to join the conference. If Maryland approves the move and Rutgers opts to leave the Big East, the Big Ten would have 14 schools.
An announcement on Maryland's final decision is expected this week, maybe as soon as Monday.
