With Texas and Oklahoma appearing to be on their way to the SEC, everyone is starting to chime in on the move and what it means for both the Big 12 and the SEC moving forward. Make some room though, the Maryland Terrapins would like a word.
Maryland and Texas played each other on the gridiron in 2017 and 2018. The 2017 Terrapins squad only went 4-8. In 2018 it wasn't much better as they went 5-7. However, they were able to hang their hats on how they beat the Longhorns in both years, in what were deemed to be “embarrassing” losses for Texas' program.
Now, with Texas set to move to the SEC, Maryland has joined the chat, reminding the Longhorns of those two victories.

It's a nice jab by Maryland twitter as the college football landscape is about to see some major changes. The Big 12 could be left picking up the scraps with their two most profiled programs in Texas and Oklahoma set to scoot over to the SEC. The moves by those two have sparked others, as it's been reported that Kansas may reach out to try and join the B1G.
Whether it's good for college football or not, the moves are going to send shockwaves through the sport. While all the other sports obviously go along with, it's Oklahoma's football program and Texas' as well that they hang their hat on at the end of the day. And now, both are set to vanish from the Big 12.
A nice parting shot by Maryland to help escort Texas on their way.
