Photo: Maryland Puts ’61′ In Student Wall In Honor Of 61 Years In The ACC

Schools who have moved conferences during this wave of realignment haven’t taken much time to honor their old leagues, and the Maryland-ACC breakup has been far from the most amicable separation, so its a bit surprising to see Maryland pay homage to the league before its final ACC home game.

The Terrapins host regular-season champion Virginia tomorrow, and in anticipation, the school has dressed up the part of the student section known as ‘The Wall’ with the number 61, representing the 61 years that Maryland was a member of the ACC. This is a really nice gesture by the school, especially considering how messy many aspects of Maryland’s departure have been.
