Hello, Maryland
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

The University of Maryland Board of Regents has voted unanimously to send the Terrapins to the Big Ten.

Now UM must apply for admission to the league and receive approval from at least nine of 12 Big Ten schools. The MBOT isn’t voting today unless admission was assured.

The Big Ten Network reports that Maryland will join the league for the 2014-2015 season. So Big Ten schedules will change. Perhaps even the 2013 football schedule. We’ll see what we can confirm.

The Big Ten just got a little…bigger.

Now – who’s next? Rutgers?

How do you feel about all this, Husker fans?
