07:27 AM ET 01.30 | Perhaps James Franklin can bring back Penn State, after all. [Franklin and his staff] is the worst thing that could have happened to Maryland's Randy Edsall and Kyle Flood of Rutgers, as the respective head coaches will have to deal with Penn State both on the field and as a top competitor on the recruiting trail in the Mid-Atlantic region as the schools enter the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions have really made huge strides in this cycle since Franklin arrived from Vanderbilt, bringing aboard several new verbal commitments. ... While there aren't a lot of spots left, PSU is making a strong play for offensive linemen Damian Prince and Georgia commit Isaiah Wynn. Prince is a Maryland product whose favorite has reportedly been the Terps. But never count out Franklin closing strong.

Oh yeah I'm sure Randy Edsel and Kyle Flood are just shaking in their boots and having nightmares over James Franklin's presence.

If Maryland didn't have the most hideous unis in all of CFB, I wouldn't even know they PLAYED CFB.

IIRC, the good SEC and ACC schools have been poaching the Mid Atlantic for years anyways. How is this any different.

Franklin fears recruiting against Butch Jones

The Mid-Atlantic was always prime Penn State recruiting territory. Their roster was always full of Jersey, Maryland and Virginia kids. If anything, Rutgers and Maryland should do better at keeping in-state talent since they can sell them on staying in state and playing in the B1G.

What if Rutgers and Maryland take the B1G by storm like Mizzou and Aggie did the SEC?

Then the B1G should quit playing football.
