  • 1 million per year in marketing on top of that.

    Blows the previous Nike deal out of the water and makes Oregon's look small.

    Hope the jerseys look good but that is some deal.

  • Dua Lipa wears Adidas, that's good enough for me.

    I couldn't care less who they signed with, but word is that the Adidas contract is just under 50% more than what Nike offered, which makes it a no brainer.

  • Hopefully, Adidas pays some mind to letting UW develop a brand and identity.

    Lots of people find Oregon's constantly shifting unis fun, I find them purposeless other than as a statement of wealth. For me, they work in opposition to developing a sense of brand or tradition on the field. Just my opinion. Put down the gun, J.

    What a great deal for the Huskies, financially. Great work, administrators.

    That's changing. Nike continues to lose market share among young people. First it was from Under Amour and now it's Adidas.

    Adidas doubled their U.S. market share last year, while Nike continued to decline.

    Kanye West has the Adidas Yeezys. For running shoes, they have Boost. James Harden and Damian Lillard (Dame 3) each have their signature shoes with Adidas.

    Unless you're talking about old school Jordans (and to a lesser extent Kobe and Lebron's), the rest of Nike's offerings aren't exciting a lot young people. Kobe and Lebron's designs are trash, too.

    Nike continues to miss opportunities. Their uniform designs have been weak, as has their well-publicized alliance with a college football program on the steep decline (Oregon).

    No serious college football player is going to care that much about brand. It's a very tiny preference in the grand scheme of things.

    I think you'd be surprised. I'm sure its much more prevalent in basketball recruiting then football recruiting, but i'm sure it exists to some extent in football too. Especially with Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, etc, etc all starting to sponsor high school 7 on 7 teams, which is becoming the football version of AAU basketball. I've heard many stories of basketball recruits not even taking calls from coaches if they dont have the proper brand.

    You are confusing "brand" with money. Nike and other "brands" are being investigated for illicit contributions.

  • College football is currently oversaturated with ugly Nike uniforms.

    In addition to the money, it's nice to be one of the flagship investments for a company like Adidas.

    I have not seen Oregon's name come up in any of the scandal reports... I have seen Washington's. And just yesterday it came out that Adidas was paying athletes to go to Adidas schools. So lets not pretend like Oregon and Nike are evil and all other schools and shoe companies are squeeky clean.

    For what it's worth, I heard UCLA's Under Armour cleats were so terrible -- literally falling apart at the seams during practices -- that many of their players insisted on wearing their old Adidas cleats.

    The Oregon guy is just playing around. Obviously it’s a great deal financially. Adidas gear is crap though, so in that respect I do genuinely feel bad for you.

    Meh, whatever. I'm sure some of the most valuable pro sports teams in the world, like Manchester United and Real Madrid use crap gear. :roll:

    We all know that if Oregon used Adidas gear and UW used Nike gear you'd be claiming that Nike gear was crap. Your whole shtick is so predictable it's just boring at this point.

    Of course this only helps the UW Athletic Dept. but the point that seems to being missed here is the significance of UW being given the 7th largest sponsorship in all of collegiate athletics. I can assure you that Oregon fans have ZERO (no pun intended) "concern" over whether the Huskies will be the recipient of inferior equipment and in fact would prefer that we did. Their concern is that UW is a program on the rise and Oregon's program is on the decline and this contract is an acknowledgement of that fact. I can assure you that Adidas has considerable resources for research and ongoing developments at UDub have not been lost on them.
