As most of you know during this lacrosse season the team wore some new blue helmets with orange chrome face masks.
The Lacrosse team wore the blue helmets twice this season, once in an all-blue loss @ Cornell
& in a Virginia looking win @ Hobart.
During the basketball season I mentioned the fact that we've struggled in Alternate uniforms, especially in all Blue.
However with the recent uniform explosion that is Nike-Oregon & now Under Armour-Maryland. I think that teams that aren't sporting the the mutli-uni looks aren't as attractive to recruits. We saw how players reacted to new uniforms at a school like Ohio:
Some schools have even decided to let the fans vote on what color combinations they are going to wear for certain games.
Schools like Oklahoma State now have 4 helmets, 4 jerseys & 4 pants to choose from:
I am a big fan of multiple uni-options. We know how bad the all-orange football unis have looked in the past, but they might not look to bad with blue or white pants to with a blue or white helmet.
A blue matte-finish helmet with a shinny orange S could look pretty sweet.
If we had 4 color choices like OSU I'd have to vote for:
4) Platinum (Not Gray)
To avoid the gray complaints we should stick with 3 color options & let NIke & Hydro Graphics, Inc. make us a helmet that looks like the skin of an orange.
Hey you never know what they'll do next.
