They should go back to the trefoil for US/football market.The size of logo Adidas gets away with is a travesty. It’s flat out goofy on the top left shoulder. Just looks off. Reason 100 why they just simply get all of the little details wrong time and time again.
which is fine. we dont all have to like everything. we can have opinions. the only thing I really care about is that nike gives the team more gear than it did previously and spare me on the we weren't winning so we didn't deserve it bullshit. they went cheap on us last time out and did us dirty. hopefully, its a better relationship the next time out. idc what sneaker heads prefer bc of some obscure brand loyalty bs. **** id go with Lululemon if they gave the team more **** than all the other companies (not to mention, their stuff is better quality albeit way more expensive).
They weren't, it was known that people like Shane Larkin and others bought their own kicks at Sole Fly because Nike was cheap with the gear. I remember my ex, who was a student athlete borrowing my gear, because the gear she was offered was few and far between. That's how cheap Nike was, and the ONLY reason they even bothered to improve was that they finally had competition in the sphere.
Most comfortable clothing on earth and they actually don’t like three sizes too large like some of the Nike adidas stuff. Ill say the newer Nike yoga line is nice now sonde they’re forced to compete w lululemon and athletaHey don’t hate on Lulu shorts! I wear them everywhere
This. It’s easier to negotiate actually being the #1 Adidas program (which we have not been) not that we have a real staff, admin, and can start to show sustainable upward trajectory backed by the historical brand, than it is to be Nike’s #1. And I’d rather be the #1 in a smaller pond than just another team to Nike.also we wont be nikes number 1 either lol. were not a big enough brand to command that from nike
Nike shat on us during that negotiation. They gave us a mediocre uniform template, didn't even try to match, or COME CLOSE to what Adidas offered, and then dared Miami to leave. Amazing how many of our fans worship a company that actively tried to screw over the University. If Nike comes correct at the next negotiation and Miami makes that move, then so be it, until then they can kick rocks.

you dont think you start fights? lol have you seen your post history? youre the king of it too. I guess were both men-children then. I actually didn't even sound off to you until you decided to throw your 2 cents in telling people to stay away from a conversation on a free board about bullshit that doesn't impact our daily lives other than where we decide to spend our DI on apparel.
also LOL at spoiled when you dont know me or what ive done in the past to get to where im at but keep going since you know everyone so well.
like I said before, please put me on ignore if you dont want to read anything I post. its a button everyone can click on.
TLDRLook, genius, this is what you don't understand.
I don't start fights. In fact, I have long followed the posting principle articulated by the great @The Franchise . The one that involves having a coconut in one hand (and for those who remember that classic thread, I tip my hat to you all). Look it up, it's a wrasslin' reference.
You want to be a d!ck? You want to start sh!te with me? I have posted in a consistent manner for nearly 25 years, on basically 4 boards. Had at least 20,000 posts on Grassy, old CaneSport, Hurricane Mutiny, and CIS. So here it is in a nutshell. I barely ever start threads, I am a commenter. And I barely ever start fights, but I sure as hell end them.
You want to be a child and pretend that you can be me? You're a faint and distorted echo of me. Your snide sneering is nothing like what I do or say on these boards. You are an arrogant a$$ who starts fights based on your own misplaced sense of pride and superiority. When someone goes easy on you and gives you an opening, you reject it and continue to name-call.
At any point, you could choose to grow up. You could acknowledge that sometimes people fight and disagree, but the real men on this board make peace and find common ground. I have a looooong list of guys I've squabbled with, and a nearly-as-long list of guys I've communicated with in DMs and made up with, many of whom I've done personal favors for. I've set guys up with tickets, helped them out with job interviews, arranged to assist them in numerous ways. Hell, without naming names, I had one guy from CaneSport so mad at me (and based on a misintpretation), that it took a third person to explain to him what was really going on, and then I ended up setting him up with infield credentials for a NASCAR race.
So get help for your childishness. It's fixable. It's called "growing up". That doesn't mean you'll never have another disagreement in life, it just means you don't have to be petty about every little thing, particularly on a UNIFORM AND APPAREL THREAD
