So I was wondering if they went as far as playing music for the Maryland batters last night? Not that it should have made a significant difference, but you figure every little psychological bit helps in this crazy game.
That should be a part of being a host team. If you earned the right to be the host team at your stadium, then you should also be able to the home team because everyone else is in reality....visiting your stadium. It's not like the NCAA has not made a ton of bad decisions. That is the rule rather than the exception when it comes to decisions from that cast of characters.
