Default notre dame switching to under armour ?

Notre dames contract with adidas expires at the end of 2014. They want to be top dog with whichever uniform supplier they choose. michigan is top dog with adidas. They would be just another team with nike. Rumor is that under armour is the likely choice starting in 2015.

Good luck with that Irish. They will never be the top dog with any supplier IMHO. The shine they think they have faded long ago.

Default Re: notre dame switching to under armour ?

By top dog do you mean the "Highest profile" team? Or do you mean that they will be tier 1 with the supplier?

For example, Oregon is tier one with nike, but Baylor also moved up to tier one with nike this year. It basically means they have unlimited budget options.

I am sure any of the companies would give notre dame tier one. Especially since they will be seeing ACC competition from here on out. They will have an overrated top ten ranking, like clemson, in no time.

I am unaware that Notre Dame is relevant.

ND has a huge fanbase, tons of alum, and is always on TV, so based on exposure alone they would be in line as the top dog for merchandise. Win loss record is irrelevant

What would be considered the biggest UA names today? Maryland, Auburn, and USC come to my mind.

The UA contract makes sense. However, the stadium renovations, outside of jumbo trons, all sound awful. Brian Kelly is the worst thing to ever happen to ND. The guy can't coach and has gone out and destroyed so many of the great tradition within the school.

Default Re: notre dame switching to under armour ?

Personally I love Under Armor.Why some people on here think USC should change to Nike and be a middle tier team with Nike gear as opposed to being one of the flagship UA teams is a mystery to me?

I guess its the same as some wanting to change to helmet color.In my book we should stick with what we have.

1. This is about ND switching, not us. They want to be the #1 team for their next apparel supplier
2. Michigan is with Adidas, which is why ND wants to leave Adidas

Not with the way Kelly has been changing the ND uniforms. They will have some basic ones but they will wear 3-4 alternates throughout the year, if Kelly has his way.

Don't know what you're talking about. Kelly took ND to the NCG last year. That is saying something. Now for Traditions I might agree with ya if I knew what you were talking about. Nothing wrong with renovating the stadium as well.
