Maryland will join the Big Ten prior to the 2014-2015 season

The Big Ten Network announced through their Twitter account Monday afternoon that the now confirmed Maryland move from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten would be taking place effective for the 2014-2015 season. The network also reiterated that they would be airing a special Big Ten Expansion Special and the press conference announcing the school's joining of the league at 2:30 PM EST on both the Big Ten Network and through their BTN2Go online service/app.

Now that we have a time table, we can begin to speculate the other lingering questions, like what impact will this have on the Big Ten's much maligned divisions? Will the league simply shift Illinois over to the Legends division and add Maryland and Rutgers (or Georgia Tech) to the Leaders side of the ledger? Or will they instead finally acquiesce and go to the more logical East/West alignment folks have been pining for since we first knew the league would have divisions in the first place?
