Agreed, I'm going with blue. White is minimally acceptable, and only on the road.

This has nothing to do with adidas. They will still be the supplier for the upcoming season. It likely has more to do with the "generic" numbers they had last year not being worn by prominent players this year for football, like 98 for example. And I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a new basketball template this season.

I keep hearing this argument, but is there any actual proof of it happening before? Genuinely curious.
It doesn't make sense to me that a brand like Nike or adidas would pull funding for an AAU team, consequently pissing off 10-20 members of their key demographic just because one player went to a school they don't sponsor.

No question about it. And I think the 3 hole playoff was great for TV as well. Some of my friends who aren't even golf fans were glued to the TV for the end there.

Not sure I agree with you there. He finished in the top 5 of all 4 majors last year, the only other players to do that were Jack and Tiger. Give the kid his due - he's only 26 years old and most golfers don't hit their prime until their mid 30s.
HERE is a good look at what he did last year, impressive to say the least.
And whle I was rooting for Sergio today, good to see Rickie pull one out.

Man that sucks. It's a shame too, the first thirty minutes of the game were some of the most entertaining basketball I've seen in quite a while.

Agree. Or sleeve numbers. I've always been partial to those.
+ a blue collar would be nice, and also have a symbolic meaning to it.

Agreed, little block M's would be cool.
Kind of like how Sparty does it, theirs don't look horrible.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||FWIW, I know someone who ran||
FWIW, I know someone who ran track at ND and graduated last year, she says that ever since the UA contract went into effect, the track team won't train in UA footwear. They all go out and buy their own adidas or Asics.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Where are you hearing this?||
Where are you hearing this? One of the big reasons ND went with UA was that they wanted to have the largest contract in the NCAA, but adidas refused to make their deal worth more than Michigan's, whether through loyalty or contractual obligation.
Also, when asked about the potential of more team/player sponsorships, UA's CEO said "we're not going to compete with our dumbest competitor." I think this kind of shows that company's direction, and I highly doubt more high profile college sponsorships are in their future.
LINK to that story.

Lmao tech on Beilein. You know it's bad when that happens.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I hate that I agree with you,||
I hate that I agree with you, because I want to believe that true competition still exists anymore, but this is spot on.
Wisconsin is the B1G's only chance to bring exposure to the conference"brand" this March, so they need to advance and get a high tourney seed, simple as that.
I'm staying positive because we played pretty well, but the odds are against us
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Doesn't look great right now,||
Doesn't look great right now, but if a couple calls went our way it would be a 10+ point Michigan lead right now. We're not out of it at all.

Need a GIF of that immediately!

NIke is better based on what?
I keep seeing the argument "Nike is clearly better" but have not seen any concrete reasons why other than "kids like it."
You say that adidas sucks, but also say you only have ever bought one piece of apparel? I'm not saying everything they make is amazing but it's impossible to judge based on one item.
And when we first signed the adidas contract, I would have agreed that Nike does make a superior product. adidas was crap up until about 2 1/2 years ago. But now, adidas has the top performance footwear on the market, hands down.
And like it or not, tournament unis bring exposure to the brand. You're talking about it, and that was the goal. Remember when Nike had all of their schools wearing gray a couple years ago? People on here would have had a meltdown if that happened to us.
There's also something to be said for being a company's flagship school. Given our recent success we'd be a middle tier Nike school at best. I mean look at Miami (YTM). They were the original sponsored school, but they've been down for a few years, Nike treats them like crap and they end up leaving for adidas.

Wellllll that wasn't pretty. But at least I don't have to defend my alma mater TOO much next week...

This captures my thoughts on the issue perfectly.
However, I'd be utterly shocked if he does even ONE of the things on this list.
I don't feel like I matter to the AD, and that's a problem. He takes this "this is big business, you wouldn't understand" attitude to things and it's very off-putting.
I've never felt so disconnected from the program

Grabbed a sixer of Gulo Gulo tonight. Never had it, heard it was good though so I'm giving it a try

They still had a chance to win. OSU made what 2 of 8 ft's on their final 4 posessions? State only had to make one basket but instead kept turning it over.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||For me? Yes I think that's||
For me? Yes I think that's awesome that I can be a part of something so cool and historic. But for the average student who doesn't post on football message boards, the at home experience of a game against some tiny directional school seems just as good as being there.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Why? He is basically saying||
Why? He is basically saying that the University has stripped everything away from games that made them fun and unique. If i want obnoxiously loud piped in music and advertisements at every stoppage of play, I can get that in the comfort of my own home by turning on the tv and cranking up the surround sound.
The only difference is that I saved hundreds of dollars on parking, tickets, and absurdly overpriced food, and hours of time spent waiting in lines.
The one thing I would miss out on by not going to the games now is the halftime show. And since they decided to turn that into an advertisement as well, i'm ok with missing it.

Morris looks more comfortable in the pocket than Gardner. Like the arm strength too

Morris is rockin some pretty sweet kicks, so we got that going for us

About damn time they called a hold
|1 year 28 weeks ago||The problem is there wasn't||
The problem is there wasn't enough time to keep competing. If it had happened with like 60 seconds left, fine, man up and finish the game. But that call essentially turned it into a free throw shooting contest with Arizona being spotted one point.
I do agree about the mental composure though, there were times when our guys tried to do a little too much. But the only way to get better at that is to live through it, and in the past year and a half nobody on this team really did because, as you alluded to, the ball would be in Burke's hands.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Burned by a questionable call||
Burned by a questionable call at the end. Honestly this was the best looking game from this team this year. Zona made some adjustments and came out strong in the second half, as you would expect them to. If that foul doesn't get called, or Caris grabs that board, Michigan wins.
This one was tough, but if you look at the losses so far there isn't one to be ashamed of. Iowa St. on the road (undefeated), Duke on the road (nobody is allowed to win there), a loss on the third day of a tournament that took place outside of this country, on a buzzer beater, and a home loss to the number one and undefeated Wildcats. As long as we keep improving we'll be fine.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they went full blackout tomorrow. Tbh I was expecting a lot worse.
