Maryland Misquotes Its Victory Song On Its Official Facebook Page

For Maryland, the move from the ACC to the Big Ten becomes official July 1. In recent weeks, the Terrapins have been getting quite excited about the transition, posting "B1G" messages all over their various websites and social media accounts. One promotion featured prominent Maryland alums wearing Big Ten themedsunglasses. 

Wednesday, the school posted the final lines of the Maryland Victory Song, along with a Terps-B1G logo, on its official Facebook page.

One problem: The final line of the song, written by Thornton W. Allen in 1928, is will win, not we'll win. The error was originally pointed out by Testudo Times, Maryland's SB Nation blog. Many commenters noticed the misquoting, too. 

The error has yet to be corrected.
