A.J. Francis and “Fear the Turtle”

Months ago, Maryland defensive tackle A.J. Francis mentioned that he had recorded the official warm-up ditty for the Terps women’s lacrosse team. As that team captured its third straight ACC title over the weekend, Francis — aka The Franchyze — finally put the audio online. Highlights:

* Repeated “Gymkana” references.

* “On the field up against the might FSU; take that S out, that’s how we gonna step to you.”

* “You ever been in Bentley’s after Ws?; Eyes blurred, like you seeing Double U. And those other rappers out, I don’t doubt them; Just they got less bars than Route 1.”

I mean, that last line is legitimately great. Seriously, this has to be the best warm-up song ever recorded by a defensive lineman for a collegiate women’s lacrosse team.”
