Adidas, the German sports company seeking to regain its dominance in the U.S., is looking at opening an automated factory in Detroit by 2017.
"We can bring manufacturing back to Detroit, and that's where we want to be in 2017," said Eric Liedtke, Adidas executive board member for global brands, said in a statement provided by the company.
His remarks were initially made at an event in New York to unveil the company's Ultra Boost shoes made from plastics and netting dumped in oceans and part of a larger announcement about the company's new business strategy to quicken its manufacturing process — and move some footwear production to the U.S.
They have a new business strategy and hired an American to head their North American division. I wonder if this will have any effect on Hackett's decision to re-up with Adidas.
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.
