Deal is reportedly worth $90M - most valuable in NCAA history.

Haha. This and this.

I cannot understand what all the hype surrounding ND is. They aren't very good at sports, it is located in Indiana, and they are irrelevant in today's day and age to everyone outside of their state.

They have a huge following for some reason. Especially in areas where college football is typically not followed (no good local team)

Huh?

Those 3 cities are some of the largest markets in the US.
For some reason people love them and they have a large following.

They haven't been very good, but the point is, irrelevant teams don't have that big of a following (larger than us) and their own TV channel.

Default Re: Under Armour Notre Dame deal $90M/10yr

I think the biggest take away from this deal is the hope USC can renew its deal and get much better terms than what they got back in 2007. At the time we signed, (try not to laugh financially!) I think USC got 6 years and $10mm. I would like to think with the success the athletic department has had since that deal and UA gaining more market share, we have a chance to get much improved terms. But I don't think we will get close to 10 years/ $90mm..

UA is also about to sign Johnny Football.

Two big moves for them this offseason.

I hate ND, but their following is simple, it is a most followed Catholic University in the country. Catholic is the largest religion in the US. Most kids who have gorwn up Catholic and play football dream of playing at Notre Dame. Even though they have not really been that great, they still pull in big time recruits each year.

For all of their "following" ND's TV numbers are not that good.

Quote:
NBC ended its Notre Dame schedule with a 1.5 and 2.3 million for BYU/Notre Dame — the network’s lowest rated and least-viewed game of the season. The previous season-lows were a 1.6 and 2.5 million for the Temple/Notre Dame opener.
Of NBC’s seven Notre Dame telecasts this season, only one — the week four clash with Michigan State — topped a 3.0 rating. Last year, when Notre Dame went undefeated in the regular season, three of NBC’s seven games topped the 3.0 mark.
ND's highest rated game was against Michigan - 8.65 million viewers while the SEC's highest rated was the title game with 14.35 million viewers. 3 other SEC games topped ND's best number.

Maybe their "fans" buy a ton of gear but they certainly are not tuning into the games like fans from the SEC or Big 10.
