I just realized that I absolutely HATE what this means for what our hockey jerseys could become.
Nike has an affinity for dye-sublimated stripes that don't continue around the whole sleeve, fake lace collars, and weird squared-off collars. See: Minnesota, Michigan State, or the previous Olympic jerseys.

Google will own everything by then. If you ain't wearin' Google unis, you're soooo 2016.

I'm going to get super vocal at complaining about everything Nike, in the interest of both parity and parody.

As a hockey guy, this makes sense now.

That doesn't really answer my question. Is Jumpman an independent company now or just a clothing line by Nike? The reason I ask is because it seems unusual that people would make the distinction of saying "Nike for football and other sports. Jumpman for Bball" if that is in fact all Nike.

Can somebody explain to me the dynamic of Jumpman vs Nike? Is Jumpman just the line of shoes or is it an underling company?

I can't say that I'm too familiar with comparing the qualities of J Crew and Banana Republic, but I'm sure it's a closer comparison than Banana Republic to Walmart. WE ARE NOT STARTING THIS ARGUMENT!
|15 hours 1 min ago||Banana Republic and Walmart||
Banana Republic and Walmart is a bad comparison. It's more like getting excited about getting apparel from Banana Republic instead of J Crew. That is to say, it's a lateral move that only affects people who are interested in aligning themselves with a particular company's branding.

It amazes me how many people just blindly love anything Nike and dismiss anything that isn't. That company has done an exceptional job of getting people to align their personal image with Nike's brand image.

I like that everybody that posts something about apparel knows that it's a garbage post so they need to start out by trying to justify it.

College football is ripe with a "unique like everyone else" feel. There are so many new uniforms every year that they're totally forgettable. It's like the manufacturers have saturated the market to the point of making me not want to care anymore.

If I were just trying to fit in then I would be telling you how amazing these are, because they are Nike, but I'm not. They're grey/greyer/black mountain range silhouette helmets on a team who's school colors do not include grey. They're tacky, just like 95% of the other alternate uniforms teams will wear this season. The constant stream of new jerseys are a platform for advertising by the manufacturers so they want them to be gaudy so people will talk about them.

They also know how to create one of the worst college football helmets ever.

Losing young players to the pros stinks, but it's waaaaay easier to deal with since he's going to the Griffins/Wings

For the team that the US brought, bronze is really very good. 21 year old AHL goalie, 5 college players, and loads of other young guys. I believe there was only 1 player from the last Olympic team and it took a Russian team with Malkin, Ovechkin, Tarasenko, and Kovalchuk halfway through the 3rd to breakthrough on them. Frankly, I'm pretty proud of those guys.

Yakupov had the same amount of points as Helm this year (33). Taylor Hall wasn't far ahead (38). Those are decent numbers, but more like half way to elite. How about Magnus Paajarvi, and Sam Gagner? Because those are 2 more top 10 forward picks in the last decade.
Maybe they should get a solid goaltender like Dubnyk. He seems to be flourishing in Minnesota.

Fuck Edmonton, man. I used to want them to get better but screw them. Anything they win is just totally unearned. They have had so many high picks that they should be littered with elite talent, but they're garbage. No love for that organization.

I'm going to go drink beer, play video games, go to bed, and dream of a time that Michigan hockey wasn't an annual underachiever.

This is what it looks like when you play team defense. Minnesota has just tightened up. Something Michigan can't seem to do.

It's depressing hearing the reality of where the hockey team is. 3 years feels too much like a trend to me.
