Statement from ACC's John Swofford
By Andrea Adelson
ACC commissioner John Swofford just released a statement on Maryland's departure for the Big Ten.
"Our best wishes are extended to all of the people associated with the University of Maryland. Since our inception, they have been an outstanding member of our conference and we are sorry to see them exit. For the past 60 years the Atlantic Coast Conference has exhibited leadership in academics and athletics. This is our foundation and we look forward to building on it as we move forward.”
