Juiceman is concerned about our football jerseys for the following reasons:
1. The numbers look wrinkly.
2. They don't appear to fit right.
3. The look like low quality practice jerseys.
Does Bill Martin, Rich Rodriguez, or Brian Cook have the power to change this? I think this is an Adidas problem. Looking at some of the other Adidas-sponsored schools (Kansas, Tenessee, UCLA, Wisconsin), I notice the same thing. Coincidentally, every team mentioned is having a down year. I was starting to investigate the connection between winning programs and their sponsor, but Under Armour-sponsored Texas Tech throws that theory out the window.
Our old Nike uniforms looked smooth and classy. Also, I think Nike did a better job creating cool apparel for the fans. It doesn't seem like Adidas has done anything beyond printing a block M on navy clothing. How bout some creativity here?
Lastly, as trivial as it sounds do you think this has an effect on recruiting? Do you think Terrelle Pryor could visualize himself better wearing Nike over Adidas? This seems unlikely but you gotta remember these are 16-17 year old kids. Overall, I think younger kids prefer Nike. They are enamored by the idea of "free gear" and wear it all day everyday.
I'm just disappointed with Adidas. I thought they would've done a better job.
Yes, I sometimes refer to myself in the 3rd person. Get over it.
