The official name from Under Armour is "White Ops," which strikes me as a little silly given that no such thing exists. (Yeah, I'm being a scrooge.) Mr. I is calling them "Albino Turtle," which is fitting, but the first place my mind went was the Snowtrooper-on-Hoth combination Joe Vellano modelled last year. That one never saw the light of day last season, I believe. I'm glad we're getting something like it, but you were supposed to use it in the snow, guys.
Anyway, if you're in to souped-up press shots of gloves and helmets, they're below the jump from the athletic department's Facebook page. What really matters: that beautiful, beautiful helmet:
Assuming the other side is a similar monochrome look of the Crossland cross, that's quite an attractive look. Other looks:
The jerseys ain't shabby, either. You can run a risk of being boring when going monochrome, especially when your idea of "color" is grey, which has become commonplace. But the bloodshoot red and deep blacks are nice touches and add a bit of pop to an otherwise subdued but very classy look. I'm excited to see these in action.
Oh, and if these ain't this year's Pride jersey, they're at the very least a variant. Between sticking "Maryland" on the back and the heavy use of the flag, including on the helmet, they're clearly pushing Maryland Pride harder on these than usual. I'm not in love with that; the whole point of the Pride jerseys was to be ridiculously flashy and over the top, just for one game. These are incredibly stylish, but they won't fill the Pride-sized hole in my heart.
The good news is that we should be only scratching the surface. Maryland supposedly had five helmets ready to go and surely as many jersey variants. It's been three games and there have only been two different combos, which have been simply the inverse of each other. (And still ugly!) Let's hope this is only the start.
