"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

The last transition from Nike to Adidas was not about the dollar amount. Nike was more than willing to match it. It was one clause in the contract that Adidas was willing to go along with that Nike wasn't. And before you ask what it was, I am not able to comment on it.

|14 weeks 3 days ago||Every thread about uniforms||
Every thread about uniforms someone worries about these companies "messing up" Michigan's traditional uniforms. There are many examples of Nike maintaining the consistent, traditional look (Texas, Penn State, Alabama). It is entirely up to the school how much Uniformz they want to adopt. Don't blame Adidas for the bumblebee uniforms of the past, blame Dave Brandon. With Harbaugh and Hackett, it appears that Michigan is (rightly) going more traditional. So stop your hand wringing and bark up the correct tree.

Idealistic undergrads don't affect these deals as much as they hope or want. These protests across the country did help with the creation with the Fair Labor Association, although Michigan undergrads favored the more socialist Workers Rights Consortium. But no, the "student body" did not force the decision.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Having been in the business,||
Having been in the business, this stuff does matter to coaches and athletes, abeit to different levels. Jim Harbaugh has been a "Nike guy" his entire career, wearing Nike cleats as an athlete and even wearing cleats as a coach. So, advanatage Nike.
But this is ultimately Jim Hackett's decision, it's in his job description to worry about this stuff. I would expect nothing but a thorough, well-considered decision by Hackett seeing how he handled the coaching search. If it's not just about the highest monetary bid, I do expect Michigan to go back to Nike since they would bring the best package possible among the main players.

Adidas has to pay $1.3B to Manchester United over the10 years, so they are limited in what else they can afford. I wouldn't be surprised if Adidas also gave up on renewing Michigan because of their huge committments elsewhere.
