Last week the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team signed a deal with Maverik Lacrosse. Included in the press release were the gloves above (primarily purple). Today an insider friend of ours sent us a picture (below) of the sample he just got. Now, that doesn’t mean the sample is what Albany will be wearing, but it is interesting to see the different spreads. Which one would you go with?

Now that the Great Danes wore are no longer in the doghouse with Gait, maybe they’ll get better helmets as well…

Cascade perhaps?

  1. both sets of gloves are pretty sweet although I think I like the yellow and white ones better.
    I do wonder where UAlbany will go with the helmet decision… most likely Cascade (although maybe Riddell? I actually like how they look and they provide great protection) will come out on top as they are the most popular helmet (and something like 14 out of the last 15 schools to win an NCAA championship wore them). UVM used Gait stuff and dropped the helmet for a Cascade version and it looks much better. I could see the Danes doing the same.
    I wonder if they'll still use a lot of black in their unis as well. it adds an interesting element for sure to the color scheme.

        • Speaking of Concussions: it's ridiculous how much I enjoy playing without a mouthpiece or shoulder pads in men's club despite the obvious risk of injury. I feel like at least half the padding I wore back in my playing days wasn't necessary.

          Rugby players manage without pads and half the guys playing football (receivers and QB's especially) have little to no padding.

          Live on the wild side, baby.
