Yes, yes, we all hate Adidas. Everything they do sucks.
Adidas Big East uni watch, ugghh!!
crazy alt unis, but it gone too far. Beginning to seem like it's a contest to see who can go the farthest before schools actually say, "no thanks."
I just tremble at the thought of what Michigan's pro combat uniforms would've looked like...but it doesn't matter. We're gonna stay with Adidas because we're their number one name and we get all of the benefits of being their big time name is DB loves that...
These guys say "what up?"...
...that Adidas shit actually looks worse than when you occasionally see one of those stories where someone gets a fancy pants European designer to propose the unifrom of the future and he presents unitards or fur collars or some ridiculous shit like that.
Edit: On second tought, a fur collar (if it was 100 % real wolverine fur) might be kind of a cool touch for, like, a November snow bowl-style game.

When has this ever actually happened?
Adidas sucks! Bring back Nike so we can have the color Maize back!
Zumba = Latin dance exercise
Zubaz = 1990is multi-colored tiger-print pants
Announcer called them shamrock shakes... Classic
The all white with the toxic green numbers and trim is something I just can't convince myself, "but the young kids of today really love them." The Cincy ones looked way worse live than above as well.
Under armor < adidas < Nike < Russell athletics
I think I'd even take UA before Adidas. I can get behind the whacked out Maryland crash dummy unis before what I saw tonight. It at least had purpose, based on state flag etc.
Russell Athletics is terrible. Have you seen some of the crap Georgia Tech's been wearing over the past couple years?
I would go Russell < Adidas < Under Armour < Nike.
Apparently this is what we narrowly avoided wearing...not sure if it has been posted elsewhere:
the interwebz... g'nite!
That is absolutely hilarious!
"I hate you...I Love you!"
Now I want a Shamrock Shake.
uniforms? Football is one thing, because of our tradition there, but is what clothing we wear really a big deal?
I care about how our boys play and the result of the game. If we beat Indiana in the NC, I don't care if we are wearing pink with red tutu's on. It's just a piece of clothing to advertise a brand people.
Let's care more about the kids committed to Michigan than the jerseys they are forced to wear.
/sorry for harsh tones
Hold on now! Hoke would never allow red tutus. Make them maize or blue and we're fine...
"...is what clothing we wear really a big deal?"
No, it isn't a big deal. At least it shouldn't be. Nobody really cares which is exactly why they wear uniforms. And that is exactly why uniforms should be relatively standard looking and unchanging from year to year (let alone game to game).
Yet, some asshole designers & marketing experts can't resist stirring the pot. All these uniformz shenanigens amount to one of the biggest trolling operations of all time and it needs to stop so that we can get back to not caring about this stupid non-issue.
If it is a "stupid non-issue" in the first place, then why do you care about it so much? And if you are used to not caring about the uniforms, then why do the changes rile you?
I bet we will wear the camo at some point this weekend
How ugly can these uniformz get? I didn't mind Oregon doing it because that's their thing. I didn't mind Maryland doing it because they had some historical reasons. I didn't mind the south Carolina camp because it was original. I didn't mind staee doing it because they don't matter anyway, but what the hell is going on with every school wearing a different jersey every game?
You realize this is the beginning of Unipocalypse! Or is it Unigeddon? I forget.
Here's what i think is happening with these shenanigans.
Remember back in the 80's when Star Wars toys started delving into the most obscure characters? Same thing. They've run out of real ideas-- just like Hasbro ran out of real characters with spoken lines.
That, or they pulled a bunch of old crap from the early 90's --originally destined for the now-defunct Deutsche Blumensteckenmeisterschaft-- out of a box and decided to iron on new team names.
Or both. Whatever the case, it won't be long before we see hypercolor unis. Mark it.
old ideas. Some people forget but there was a phase in the 90's when the uni's got pretty stupid, not this god awful stupid but for the time they were stupid.
1996 Kentucky wore these "acid wash" denim things. They also had shorts with blue that was supposed to look like a wild cat shredded the shorts sometime around then.
I believe Syracuse has destroyed all evidence of the body suit uniforms they wore for a couple game in the Rony Seikely days.
Haha, thats great! So was the inspiration the always classy Kentucky Tuxedo, Blue jean jacket worn with blue jean shorts?
But I have showed some kids of school them and they think they are sweet. These Uniforms are recruit getters.
....is up after 2016-17. With DB steering the ship, it's going to come down to money and probably nothing else. If Nike offers a better deal, we'll switch back. If they don't, we'll stay with Adidas.
Whining about it will change nothing.
I actually did catch part of the Rutgers-ND game last night, and it was difficult to watch A) Rutgers play basketball, and B) the shade of green Adidas chose for Notre Dame's socks and shoes. It harkened back to a time when radium was used in self-luminous paints basically, it was that green. The players that had kneepads on basically looked like glow sticks in motion. It was odd, to say the least.
'looks like someone toned down the Irish hideousness a little. On the wide TV shots, I didn't see the camo print right away, but I couldn't avoid the socks and kneepads...the color of a bad night of drinking.
My guess is that this picture wasn't taken shortly after a staffer restocked the rack. We'll see these popping up in developing countries in years to come.
I just don't understand why ND would allow Adidas to use a green that is close to kelly green, but definitely not kelly green. Those kneepads look like mint toothpaste.
What in the actual fuck is Adidas thinking?
for those of u complaining about the jerseys unforunately it is the style now. You go to any store and everything is bright colors like that shirt shoes hell even jeans. it is what the cool kids wear? it will go and something else will come in and we wont like that either. I actually dont mind it but some colors I dont get..
So the Adidas bash-a-thon continues. Apparently nothing Adidas has ever done, currently does, or will do in the future has any worth, merit, or value. Adidas must recruit its designers and marketing people from the looney bin. I mean, every latest so-called "uni" is apparently more obscene than its predecessor. How can that be?
I know not what course others might take. But as for me, give me performance on the field, on the floor, in the rink, in the pool, wherever. Whether a uni is loathsome or charming to some or others of the fanbase is really irrelevant. Beauty is, after all, only in the beholder's eye.
Give me athletics over aesthetics.
