B1G setback: Maryland is now ACC history

Lefty Driesell, Gary Williams, Tom McMillen, Albert King, Len Bias, Juan Dixon. It’s all in the history books now. Florida State emphatically sent Maryland to the Big Ten when a Boris Bojanovsky dunk with four-tenths of a second on the clock eliminated the Terps from the 2014 ACC Tournament on Friday.


Chris Graham: Ixnay on the extra-ay-day at the ACC Tournament

When I first heard that the ACC was going to add a fifth day to the ACC Tournament, I was, understandably, overjoyed. The ACC Tournament is my favorite week of the year. One more day of ACC basketball? Count me in. It’s like adding a day to Christmas, right?

The college-sports landscape was thisclose to apocalypse – if only Texas wasn’t Texas, and had gone along with a move to the Pac-10 that had seemed to be in the works, instead of building itself a UT TV network and convincing the nine dwarfs left in what was the Big 12 to be its programming […]
