It puzzles me why I never see Towson University included in the recap of football games in the “Area Roundup” section of the Sunday sports pages. The football program is successful, and the roundup routinely features James Madison and Richmond — like Towson, both members of the Colonial Athletic Association — even though they are located twice as far from the District as Towson.

My daughter attends Towson University, as do many students from Montgomery and surrounding counties. So what exactly are the criteria for being included in the “Area Roundup”?
