Listening to SVP and he has very sound analysis on the Maryland move. I like him and he has been historically kind to Penn State and used to post on TOS.
Let this be an invite to Scott, a Maryland Alum, to join our board.
What did he say?
Basically said that ppl that are against the move are holding onto something that died long ago. Basketball was always a home/home series with their rivals and now only have that with Pitt(new proclaimed rival they could care less about) and another school.
Says the $ figures the Big 10 was throwing around will never be known but Maryland needs the money. It made it impossible to walk away.
Much more and hope I got the basics right.
Van Pelt was a dick head when PSU started to raid Maryland recruiting wise. He was on the UMD board making his comments about that known. He isn't that kind.
Watching BTN Network press conference and did not know that some of their higher ups are Big 10 school alumni or worked there including previous Ohio State president.
CIC for academic reasons.
Did not know that... He is a fan first and I respect that about him. I think that may have been after the ALE recruitment when their noses were rubbed in it badly.
Delaney on. All 12 University presidents supported Maryland joining. Says they were "giddy."
Has Erickson issued an apology to Maryland and Rutgers yet as a "welcome them to the conference"?
Surprised they asked Erickson. I just figured the thought was that he would agree to anything.
The Big 10 will be opening up offices over here on the East Coast.
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
Wallace Loh, Maryland University President alludes that intense negotiations for 2 1/2 weeks.
Jim Delany- UM not included in discussions when Nebraska was added. He does sound well spoken although I bet his speaks like a sailor when discussing Penn State. No offense to sailors in that last remark.
Erickson to teleconference in and about to launch a committee about why no PSU representative was at press conference to welcome Maryland.
Trust me, this is the last thing you'd want.
He's a good guy and very fair. I'd love to see him post here with his perspective.
To each his own, but don't say I didn't warn you.
I've seen him stand up for PSU on numerous situations over the past year (when hardly anyone else would). Even dating back to that 2006 recruiting class, I remember him stopping by the BWI board to share some nice & thoughtful words about the Aaron Maybin pickup for PSU. All stuff that was very classy which he absolutely didn't have to take the time to share.
SVP is your typical ESPN snake-in-the -grass talking head.
You didn't see what he posted on UMD's scout boards then.
