Maryland braces for crowd noise — and ‘comedians’ — at Michigan State

Maryland football coach Michael Locksley frequently invokes an aphorism featuring the descriptors “faceless and nameless” when he and his staff communicate to players the game plan for their upcoming opponent. It’s a reminder that the Terrapins, in Locksley’s estimation, are best served when attending to their preparation and execution rather than overthinking the tendencies of the team they are facing.

When it comes to a fervent fan base bent on disrupting Maryland with creative taunts, however, Locksley, at least this week against Michigan State, has made certain to instruct his charges to tune out the anticipated noise at Spartan Stadium, where supporters have been particularly inhospitable to the undefeated Terrapins.
