Maryland to Big Ten: 'You're not joining a Midwest conference,' says Jim Delany

Rob Carr

Maryland president Wallace Loh, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany and others spoke Monday about the Terps' conference switch.

The key points of Maryland's press conference announcing its 2014 move to the Big Ten in all sports included money, money, money, money, money and money, plus academics, stability, money and money. The most critical quote might be when Jim Delany announced East Coast offices for the conference by declaring the Big Ten is no longer a Midwest conference. He does not say things like that by accident.

Also, there was a part where Delany started talking about the Rose Bowl, of course.
