Well, the word is out. If the other 15 teams still playing in this NCAA Tournament are sweet, you can bet the Maryland women's basketball team will be licking its chops. Around College Park, trash-talking is out; baby-eating is in.
I spotted at least a half-dozen signs in the crowd last night -- an easy Terps' win -- that innocently-noted, "Terps eat kids!" You'd think such heresy would've been uttered by Utah fans. But no, "Eat kids!" is a motto adopted by Maryland players. "Go team!" is sooo last year. D.C. Sports Bog was all over this yesterday.
The cheerleaders need to come up with whole new routines for this bunch:
It got me thinking, if cannibalism is an acceptable rally cry, what other brutally honest yet obscenely graphic mottos and slogans should area teams use to inspire?
