Update: Maryland to join Big 10, sources say Rutgers could also move to Big 10

The new $50 million exit fee for an ACC member to leave the league may not stand in the way of conference realignment after all.

Late Friday night, Pennsylvania radio host Jerry Fisher tweeted that sources told Phil Grosz, the Penn State editor for Rivals.com, that Maryland is set to join the Big Ten in 2014 with an announcement coming next week. Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports then indicated in a post that the rumors are "more than just rumors."

With Pittsburgh and Syracuse set to join the ACC next year and realignment having seemingly taken a back seat with the ACC at 14 members, certainly these rumors seemed to come out of nowhere.

From speaking to a couple insiders today, the Big Ten expansion talks are far along. This is hardly preliminary.

We estimate that Maryland will have the smallest football fan base in the Big 10. Good academics, at least.
