    Those big shorts weighed like 10 pounds once you sweat in them. Probably cost some kids 1/2 to an inch of vertical just from all that fabric.

    If you look at our players' Instagram pages, when they hang out with each other and their friends, they wear Nike shoes, not adidas.

    For example, Danny Dixon, although not on the team anymore, wears Nike shoes to workout in. Marquise Moore wears Nike, Justin Kier wears Nike, Kam Murrell, although not on the team anymore, wears Nike shoes. You get the point.

    They love wearing Nike/Jordan shoes and not adidas.

    You must have been a communications major if you still can't grasp the business decision to have Adidas gear over Nike. Wow kids today love Nike, no shit. Has nothing to do with the Adidas deal.

    I'm not an adidas fan, but I give them their due. They've come a long way in 5 years. They don't have the "cool" factor, but I'd rather be with Paulsen/adidas than Hewitt/Nike.

    I'd still be interested to know what the Nike vs. UA vs. adidas offers were to us. I would guess Nike was very little, if anything at all. UA probably was decent. Adidas was probably the best. I'm surprised UA didn't make a bigger push, considering we're in their backyard.

    Over the last few years Adidas has really upped their game. Their coaching/sideline apparel no longer looks like it was designed for NASCAR. I was very against Adidas when it was first announced, but I have been pleasantly surprised.

    Their stuff doesn't actually stink. Outside of Kansas, Louisville, NC State, and Nebraska adidas has sort of become king (or prince) of mid-majors. Other schools get more in tv rights and make up the difference for Nike giving them less money. We're not at that level...yet.

    They've been all right in my book, too. They do seem to struggle sometimes understanding the American market with some of their designs, but overall Adidas makes comparable stuff to Nike.

    I give them credit. The tops of most of their jerseys aren't bad. It's the shorts that are brutal.

    I can tell you that Nike does nothing departmentally for a non P5 program like Mason was at the time they went on the street. It is primarily hoops and 2-for-one buys with an annual spending minimum. Adi and UA work to sell entire departmental commitments. Adi is getting more aggressive with their US collegiate leadership change.

    Every one of those schools had a right to first refusal and to control their brand. IU did not sellout to the design incentive clause in the deal. ND did the same thing with UA regarding a right to first refusal in football, but not in hoops. From what I've seen at Mason, their uni's appear to be custom design outside of the incentive design line. Classic uni's. What you wear is what you agree to wear. No one makes you look like a clown unless you want to take the additional money to. Ask Maryland football.
