As far as uniforms, I've always said Adidias is a distant 3rd behind Nike and then UA in football. Still think we go back to Nike when the deal is up but either is better than Adidias. Money or not, I think they know what it does for recruiting and merch sales. IIRC, Adidias admitted last year that they haven't made a single return on investment in the college football arena (but they have to get in the market somehow, etc). I do not own a single piece of Adidias UM gear and know many more who also still wear their old Nike shirts, hats, uniforms, etc. Also, new (old) Nike can be bought on Ebay and such. I've only seen two things from Adidias that I'd buy and that is the UTL Jersey and UTL coaches Polo. As with the playing jerseys, fabric and look is just worse than Nike.
