It has to be one of the trickiest transitions in pop music. In the past several years, O.A.R. has made the jump from successful jam band to radio-friendly rock outfit. The band once known for the nine-minute acoustic epic "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker" - a smash on the college circuit - is now the band behind the platinum-selling rock single "Shattered." Back when O.A.R. first got together in Rockville in the mid-1990s, there was a clear-cut career path for musicians: Most bands signed to major labels, cranked out a couple of hits, developed a fan base and then drew on that fan base.

Maryland football will begin spring workouts on March 2 and hold practices at Baltimore's Dunbar High School on March 30 and Middletown High School in Frederick County on April 6. Holding practices on the road represents a new wrinkle for the program, which is eager to reach out to its fan base. Both practices begin at noon and are open to the public. Another new wrinkle: Instead of holding the red-white spring game on a Saturday afternoon, the game will be under the lights on Friday night, April 12 beginning at 7;00 p.m. Maryland was 4-8 last season.
