The Maryland officially joins the Big Ten tomorrow, marking the first time that the school will change conferences since 1953, when it left the Southern Conference to become a founding member of the ACC. As you could guess, this is a huge deal for Maryland, and the school has had some fun with the move. People associated with the school -- and some not associated with the school -- have been busting out "Thing B1G" sunglasses, and Maryland put out a video showing how excited it is about the move.
Today, after getting a "#B1GWelcome" from Under Armour, Maryland's compliance office took to Twitter to celebrate the move to, with a little help from the Rick James skit from "Chappelle's Show."

If Maryland's going to keep tweeting out memes from various "Chappelle's Show" bits, we're really excited about its inclusion into the Big Ten.
