    Nike Memphis: 5 years | $11.25 M
    Adidas Louisville: 10 years | $160 M

    I get it, but Adidas still blows. Can we just hire our own design team and have Adidas print it

    Thats a horrible comparison first of all.
    If we get a multiple on our deal of 5x then yeah I get it and lets expand the stadium.

    Lol yeah you can’t turn down that much of a difference(if close to the Louisville offer)

    hopefully Adidas surprises with the designs

    Nike contract is almost up. Just coincidence more than him choosing to do it now.

    TMO also just worked a new deal with Adidas at his old school if I recall correctly, so he just went through this once.

    All I want to see is some innovative thing with NIL. That could be an actual game changer.

    Hopefully just leverage with Nike. Wasn’t it Frost who got them to actually give us way more uniform combos?

    And then he went to an Adidas school.

    HOW DID THAT WORK OUT FOR HIM?!?!?!

    I don’t think the school can negotiate any NIL stuff on behalf of their players.

    School doesn't have to negotiate it. Adidas can just do it. But they can probably negotiate production of apparel or similar even if the royalty payment isn't there. There just has to be a creative way to figure it out that im sure Adidas has been working on for a couple of years. Basically make it friendly to the opportunity.

    Also the idea of "oh lets be one of Adidas' elite brands and not a lower tier of Nike" means jack shit, functionally. This is like an ad agency thing where they pitch to be of 'our main priorities' because 'we love your brand so much.' What it really means is maybe they add one or two people to your account. But the product and service is essentially the same. Maybe some better account servicing and attention sure. But it doesn't make the output any better. It's a sales tactic.

    The true dollars difference is one thing but get out of here with "but Adidas will make us their elite brand" crap.

    Yea, adidas threw like 160 million at Louisville, meanwhile Nike is only giving us like a discount to order from their website (only half joking too).

    If we have substantial creative control AND are getting several million per year more with adidas, I can see why that would be hard to turn down.

    I obviously prefer Nike, but still.

    There’s been little talk on the Big 12 in general. I guess they’ll say more once they negotiate the buyout.

    Indiana was billed as a good team out of the gate, and a potential contender in the Big 10 (behind OSU).

    Personally think our line is disrespectful. Louisville was awful last season and looked like trash against Ole Miss. We run a similar offense to them as well.

    he’s not good but we have A strong veteran line and defense coaches that seem to be able to make adjustments for the first time in years.

    I'm at 24 years now and yeah it never doesn't hurt when you watch the team play so far under their capabilities and lose to a team they should easily beat.
    Let's hope we are past that now, but I don't think for old schoolers it will ever go away completely.

    I know it's nuts being a UCF fan since 2002 but I'm actually not even worried until we are down in the 4th. Down 21-0 to Boise I was still just "yeah we're still scoring 30+, I just hope we can stop them a couple of times." I just had to deal with texts from UF-fan-friends about wanting Gus fired (joking-half-joking) but I'm still confident as long as we have an offense than can score at will as long as it doesn't punch itself in the dick.

    There's some truth to NB having some growing cache with Kawhi and maybe a couple of other guys. And they probably have more credibility with high schoolers than us ITT. They'd be great for the tennis program (Coco Gauff is their biggest star there).

    But that said, the "top dog with brand X" is still such a stupid thing. Great service! Like that matters to fans how good their account people are to the people in the UCFAA office?

    Like does anyone here feel underserved by Nike? Even if it's somewhat true to those in the building--the FANS and players just see all of the cool output even if it's just the basic T-shirts and polos in the bookstore.

    Anyway - I'd take NB over Adidas fwiw. Actually give me some Fila while we're at it.
