Maryland has filed suit against the ACC again, this time accusing Pitt and Wake Forest of attempting to lure some Big Ten schools to follow them to the ACC at the behest of ESPN.
The damages requested are a bit more than triple the $52 million the ACC is suing for.
If the charges hold up in court, we guess the next question would be if Wake and Pitt acted on behalf of the ACC, if the general membership was aware of any such actions, and in particular if Maryland knew. That would certainly be rich.
There may be no merit to the case anyway as Maryland is alleging that the ACC was doing exactly what the Big Ten and Maryland were doing. The Maryland A.D. is calling it a "competitive reaction." If so, it's how Maryland typically reacts when the Terps lose in the ACC: complain, complain, complain, then try to get the court, legal or basketball, moved closer to home so life is easier.
