Default 2007 Reflection: Under Armour and Nike

At the risk of turning this into another "Under Armour vs. Nike" thread, can someone re-post the story of how USC signed their initial contract with Under Armour back in 2007?

I believe I read somewhere on this site (and I can't find the exact post/thread now) that Nike badly wanted USC after the university's Russell contract expired after the 2006 season, but Coach Spurrier elected to go with the up-and-coming Under Armour over Nike (ironic, since he wore Nike when he was coaching at Florida). At the time, I believe Under Armour only had university contracts with Maryland, Auburn, and Texas Tech at the time at which we signed our contract, but I just wanted to confirm this with those on this forum.

It came down to the fact that UA offered to pay us the most money. I'm not sure if Nike was even an option at the time. I feel like I remember that UA was the only one that made a compelling offer, and we were all extremely excited to have a real apparel sponsor.

Here is an article about the 2011 deal itself (not the selection process).

I liked the 2007 uniforms at the time. A lot.

But when they changed them in 2011 i hated those. Those terrible strips on the ftont shoulder. Ew

Our new ones are great. Look a lot more traditional.

If Nike knew we were going to be what we are today I'm sure they would have pushed for us harder. Can you imagine a Nike and Spurrier commercial?

I would be happy either way. Under Armour is probably pretty damn happy we exploded onto the national scene

I really like how UA did our uniforms last year (using them again this year). I think these uniforms look the best since UA and USC joined. I have a few ideas in what would be nice to see but that's another thread.
