Conference realignment in the NCAA isn’t over yet.
Maryland and Rutgers currently moved to the Big Ten giving the conference a total of 14 teams.
Rutgers left the Big East to join, while Maryland left the Atlantic Coastal Conference.
Maryland was one of the founding members of the ACC.
The ACC has been worried about members deciding to leave the conference and recently raised fees for members leaving to $50 million from $20 million, a payment Maryland is obligated to make in order to exit.
Maryland is expected to request the ACC to lower its fee.
Rutgers announced their exit of the Big East Tuesday and will be forced to pay a $10 million exit fee, $40 million dollars cheaper than Maryland’s.
The Big Ten appeared to be content with their 12 team conference.
This is more than likely a response to Notre Dame’s recent decision to join the ACC in all sports except football.
The Maryland and Rutgers move is expected to take effect in 2014.
