Via twitter, @thomasbeisner, who hosts a University of Kentucky sports television show, reported earlier this morning that adidas schools will be wearing basketball uniforms with sleeves for the NCAA tournament. He followed up that report with the caveat that Michigan (and early-season foe NC State) will NOT wear these jerseys. The full release is from Sports Business Journal Daily article which is, unfortunately, behind a paywall.

This could have been a disaster. Is it possible that the AD is getting the message that the fan base isn't too stoked about the Uniformz trend? Tweets pasted below:
NCAA teams sponsored by adidas will wear short-sleeve uniforms in the NCAA Tournament.
According to @SBJSBD, Michigan and NC State will not wear them. IU says they haven't heard and Louisville says they don't know specifics.
