All valid points.....

Probably still a little early for Feinstein to be reaching a conclusion on the winners and losers of the Maryland debacle just yet. Swofford was asleep at the wheel in failing to recognize that Maryland's financial distress made them a sitting duck for Delaney and the Big 10 checkbook. Loh was nothing more than a opportunist trying to find a backdoor to be the president of a Big Ten school after being shut out at his previous stops. ACC basketball is not nearly as damaged as Feinstein asserts with the loss of Maryland nor is whether Maryland is relevant in Big Ten hoops the number one indicator of whether the deal was actually good for Maryland. It will probably take another 3 to 5 years to sort out the realignment and get a true picture of the results. I think for Maryland the results will boil down to whether their athletic department has become financially stable. If not, the change will have been of little real value and if they are stable at that point they will have to answer the secondary question of whether the financial stability offsets what they gave up. The ACC measure will be where the conference stands relative to the other Power 5 groups and how well it is positioned to be a survivor in the next round of realignment.
