It’s the most wonderful time of the year: March Madness!

Whether you’re planning on packing your bags and heading to the state of Washington for Maryland’s first round game or watching from home, you’re going to need to dress accordingly. After all, what are sports fans without their impressive collections of spirit wear? Pulsefeedz brings you the top nine essential spirit wear for any UMD sports fanatic.

It’s simple, but it’s a staple in any Maryland fan’s closet. Show off your pride with the Terps’ killer new logo introduced last year for the first season in the Big Ten Conference.

 

8. Fear the Turtle

Introduced in 2003 after they won the 2002 NCAA Championship, “Fear the Turtle” is the perfect rally cry for the post-season. Show the haters that we’re much more intimidating than our emoji makes us out to be.

 

7. Stay Melo

This is (probably) one of your last opportunities to cheer on the Terp with a million dollar smile. Melo Trimble returned this year for his sophomore season, but he’ll most likely be taking his talents to the NBA next year. Looking for a way to express your calm and collected character while giving a shoutout to everyone’s favorite point guard? Look no further.

 

6. Team Jersey

Pretend for a little while that you’re Jake and Melo’s teammate by sporting a jersey on game day. Bonus points for a jersey with a Nike logo that proves you’ve been a fan long enough to see the transition to Under Armour.

 

5. Maryland Snuggie

No ticket to the game? No problem. Be the envy of all your friends and stay cozy at the same time.

 

4. Maryland Flag

Because nothing says “Super Fan” like wearing a Maryland flag as if it were a cape.

 

3. Flag tattoo sleeves

A little less commitment than wearing a flag cape and definitely less commitment than getting actual Maryland tattoos, these sleeves look great in a big crowd.
2. Flag leggings

Take your school spirit to the next level by wearing the coolest flag in the country as pants.

 

1. Morph Suit

Too big a fan to just cover one part of your body in the Maryland flag? Cover the WHOLE ENTIRE THING with a Maryland flag morph suit. No one will ever again doubt your dedication to the Terps, though you might want to cut off the fingers unless you’re willing to go the whole day without being able to use your phone. This look definitely isn’t for the faint of heart, but if you bleed red, black and gold, it’s the perfect outfit for you. At the very least, it’ll increase your chances of getting on TV.
