Maryland to host Coaches vs. Cancer Classic opening-round games

Maryland will host two regional-round games of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic in November. The Terrapins will play Seattle on Nov. 8 and Charleston on Nov. 10 at Comcast Center before moving on to the championship round at Madison Square Garden in New York. Matchups and game times for the championship round, in which each team will play two games, will be announced at a later date.

We were in this tournament the year we won the title right? Maybe a sign of things to come...

If they really want to support the fight against cancer, they should have a Coaches vs. the American Cancer Society Classic instead. The ACS has blocked many inexpensive, effective cancer cures and kept cures away from cancer patients for decades with not one advancement in cancer treatment in its long history. The money collected from us goes into the pockets of the ACS executives and CEOs not to fight cancer. The ACS is a cancer on our society.

Wouldn't the Terps (and Pittsburgh, Texas and Illinois) have to WIN the opening round games to advance to MSG?

On ACC expansion from the previous thread:

Not a fan of the Superconference and the ACC may be immune from having to go that route based on the existing revenue sharing agreements. The three schools that would most likely leave based on shrewd targeting would be Fl State, Miami and Clemson to the SEC. The most desirable school for the SEC would likely be UNC, which would never, ever separate itself from Duke and NC State. State school with alumni who would riot if the topic was even broached.

In terms of Miami, FL St. and Clemson, not sure that the economics of joining a 16 team SEC make sense. The SEC does not share bowl game and BB tourney winnings, and at 16 members, the static, diluted TV pie is probably not a gain either.

imho, the best outlook for 11 of the teams in the ACC is to replace BC with either Rutgers, Pitt or (as a last resort) WVA. If (or when) the NCAA finally institutes a FB playoff, the value of 16 team superconferences will diminish mightily.

The Big East is far more at risk than the ACC - they can't even get Notre Dame to play most of their FB teams, much less join the conference in full.

And I don't get folks pointing out that the ACC has not been a great BB conference when it has produced the last two NCs (and 5 out of the last 10). Maybe I am missing some logic here.

Anyone know if Goins is eating lunch in CP or Chicago?

The above diatribe aside and given my personal distaste towards expanding the ACC, IF it were inevitable that the conference needed to expand to protect itself, I think Petecard's proposal of adding Rutgers, Syracuse, Pitt and UConn (although Calhoun is a cheater) would be the most beneficial and lucrative scenario....and the ACC would DOMINATE women's BB. Of course, Penn State would be a far more desirable target than any of those schools but don't think they could be pried away from the Big 11 at this point.

Still think the ACC should look at launching its own network. That seems to deliver the most revenue and is the differentiating carrot that the B11 has to offer the schoos it is targeting.

I love the idea of an ACC network, but mostly for selfish reasons. My only concern with the idea is that TV networks and deals seem to have a strong corrupting influence on college sports as evidenced by the current money grab conference rebalancing fiasco.

It would have been nice to have played Navy. It also makes no sense that they aren't playing, anyone think Seattle really wants to travel out to the East Coast?
