Adidas is doing too little, too late. I've seen these polos in person and they're definitely what they look like in the photos.

Adidas apparently thought it was a smart idea to wait until the time the contract was up to put Michigan in actual Maize

I just want to go back to Nike. The first jersey that I ever owned as a kid was a Jarrett Irons jersey with the hologram block Ms on the shoulders. I still have it and its still bad ass.

Behind the closed and dead-bolted door to the super secret boardroom at Adidas, amidst wailing and nashing of teeth, one chant grew to a semi-roar:  "Go with Nike, Go with Nike, Please Dear God, Go with Nike".  It went on like 10 Million times...

Between UA, Nike, and Adidas, the brand with the lowest quality gear is Adidas. I had a Michigan Nike shirt last years while my $90 Michigan sweatshirt didn't last three months. Also, they just don't look good on TV.

Been a strict Nike guy for three decades. My son wears UA for his AAU team. Most of the AAU teams we play are dressed head toe in UA gear - especially the coaches which I think is UA's clear strategy. And I think it'll work.

Many youth sports players will tell you UA makes a better shoe. My son convinced me to try them and they were much better than what Nike had to offer, IMO. First non-Nike shoe in 29 years. I'm staying with UA.

Under Armour shoes are cheap compared to Nike. I've tried multiple UA styles and they've all been ok. I've never played in them because they don't feel comfortable standing and walking in.
