Default Re: UA Contract?

I assume that the schools contract with UA will be renewed or renegotiated or whatever they do. I know a lot of folks around here hate UA and would like us to go with someone else. I doubt it'll happen though, momentum and established relationships and all that. Unless of course UA does something really stupid in the next couple years and forces the university's hand. I would like to see a change too, but I think we are stuck with UA for quite some time.

Standing relationships have nothing to do with it. It's business. Whoever will provide the best contract (ie best product at the best price with the best marketing) wins. Hopefully the program will maintain the momentum it has built up over the last few years and will be courted by all the manufacturers even the Evil Empire Nike. Don't tell me that the constant hype over Nike uniforms even the atrocious Oregon smorgasbord doesn't help recruiting which is the name of the game today.

UA is great with the exception of the footwear. (and the stupid special uniforms.)

They are relatively new to the shoe industry. So, hopefully the cleats will improve with each passing year.

Yeah, I think Connor Shaw had tweeted something about that. Not sure what the specific issue was though.

Only person I heard of that had problems was CS, apparently he went through 3 pair during last spring and summer workouts. He tweeted about it and later removed the tweet.

if you're looking for uniform design, there is no doubt on this planet that Nike is the king. UA's uniforms are hideous when it comes to promo stuff. Like the gray uniforms worn at LSU, jerseys looked fine, but that awful digital camo pant design was a head scratcher. It seems like whenever they want to do something special, it involves camo in some shape or form. The uniforms they gave the kids in the all star game this year were terrible.

Under Armour does however own the fabric game. They were the ones who started the whole heat control, cool stuff.

the special uniforms always have camp due to UA being a big supporter to both the military and the WWP. I personally think we can suffer through one game of hideous uniforms a season to support our wounded vets.

Last year's LSU unis had nothing to do with Wounded Warriors.

And way underperforming. My golf foursome plays through the winter. Tried their "cold gear" stuff. Pitiful. Stores get $50 per top/bottom, or $100 for a set. I found a dual layer wool/polypropylene thermal set (same thing the US Military uses) for $20. Only very marginally more restrictive movement wise but at least 3 times warmer.

See, the creative side in me says there are way more ways to honor vets rather just using Camo patterns. But thats just me.

we don't need hideous uniforms with sleeves that are too tight to do something to support our vets.
