University of Maryland’s Sports Information Director, Patrick Fischer, recently wrote a post for UMTerps.com about the lacrosse team’s 24 uniform combinations.

Traditionally, the Terps have worn white at home and red on the road. Occasionally throughout the years black jerseys were worn. Helmets have usually been black or white, but red has also been spotted at times. The debut of the new gold jerseys in the opener vs. Detroit Mercy caused a lot of chatter (some good, some bad). The addition of gold shorts for the UNC game in March added another element.

All of this raises the question – How many combinations do the Terps have? The answer (not including shoes) is 24 (2 helmets x 3 jerseys x 4 shorts) and so far in 2011, outside of the ACC tournament, the Terps have not worn the same combination twice.

Uniforms are a big part of a team’s program. It seems silly to many, but kids choose their favorite teams because of their jerseys. Kids become enamored by them and subsequently become huge fans. Oftentimes, these huge fans decide to go to their favorite school. Uniforms not only lend themselves to having fun with your school’s colors, but they also attract fans and recruits. Oregon football ring a bell? Nike? Under Armour? Maryland may see more of an influx down the road.

ps I like the gold tops and black bottoms. What say you?

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
