The number support the argument perfectly that top talent is not all in Maryland. The next few years will determine "how strong is the Maryland brand outside of Maryland". It's easy to get recruits, but are they the best recruit to live up to the winningest programs in history?? Maryland is playing catch up to recruiting outside of Maryland just like what was stated previously.

I'm not anti Maryland(Cathy Reese is a terrific person), it's a different recruiting world than it was 5 years ago and some teams are better equipped to compete in my humble opinion.

I would bet on the ACC being the dominant conference over the Big 10 going forward, but that is cyclical.
