As Maryland heading to the Big Ten news breaks, the Terps leaving the ACC is breaking hearts - or at least generating a reaction - from notable alum, current athletes and basically all of Twitterverse. Here's what some of those folks are saying.
Sad day to be a real terp smh— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) November 19, 2012
I don't think going to the Big ten is a good move for Maryland! What you guys think?— Greivis Vasquez (@greivisvasquez) November 18, 2012
Sad day to be a terp. Really? The big 10? That's like exchanging your Bentley for a Buick.— Kristi Toliver (@KristiToliver) November 19, 2012
I don't think moving University of Maryland into the Big 10 is a good idea at all for many reasons— Shawne Merriman (@shawnemerriman) November 18, 2012
I feel sick. Part of my identity has been stripped. Priority 1 better be reinstating those 7 sports we cut. Goodbye, ACC. #Terps— Bonnie Bernstein (@BonnieBernstein) November 19, 2012
Maryland's move to the Big Ten, sad but real. As alum very melancholy, as one who covers spots, the business aspect is understandable #darn— Chick Hernandez (@CHICKatCSN) November 19, 2012
Will discuss the Md move on @svpandrussilloI grew up in the ACC. Like many, I'm nostalgic. But the ACC I grew up with is long gone.— Scott Van Pelt (@notthefakeSVP) November 19, 2012
