Both of Maryland’s lacrosse teams walked away from the spring with national titles under their belt, so it’s only right they got some championship ice to celebrate.
The men’s team tweeted out an in-depth look at its national championship rings. Tewaaraton Award winner Matt Rambo’s ring is shown, and a closer look at the engraving reveals a speaker.
Next to the speaker is a phrase starting with a “M” that could be mistaken for “Maryland” on first look. The engraving actually says “Money for Nothing” and the speaker refers to a tradition the Terps adopted in their championship season.
At some point last season, now-graduated Maryland midfielder Nick Manis started bringing an oversized speaker with the team for every road game. The team then adopted Money for Nothing by Dire Straits as its unofficial anthem, and it stuck.
The championship rings also include the Terps’ motto “Be The Best,” next to commemorations of Maryland’s 2017 Big Ten and National Championships, as well as its win in “The Rivalry” against John Hopkins.
Women’s lacrosse received their rings on Sep. 16, and sent out a picture of head coach Cathy Reese’s championship bling. The rings feature the Terps conference championship and with their undefeated record engraved on the side.
Win titles, get rings, repeat.
