From College Park

The gamesmanship has started early. Per its custom, Maryland plays regular music when it is warming up. Once it leaves the field after warmups, however, it plays a little lighter music if the opposing team is still on the field. Today, the selection for Virginia was Cindi Cyndi Lauper's "Girls...
