    Didn't UA back out of the MLB contract a few years ago too?

    Its like that across the west specifically in Denver, Vegas, Phoenix and LA. Other than the home state pac 12 schools you'll see more Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame etc. stuff than other pac 12 schools. Except for transplants or those that grew up following college sports heavily, theres just little passion for college sports out west. UCLA deal was always an absurd overpay by under armor. I read that nike offered less than half of the UA deal.

    So does this mean under armour can get back to what they do best: making tight camo shirts with Superman logos on them?

    Texas Tech recently signing back up with this clown show is just perfect.

    how much longer do you think they’ll be protecting WillyB? Thought I heard rumors that Carolina was looking to end the UA relationship

    Does that mean to pay you like the lower level sports program UofSC is?

    So it’s obviously (or seems) a UA fuck more than a specific school fuck up.

    that's what I got out of it, claiming UCLA or Cal "not living up to their end of the deal" really makes you wonder what UA's expectations actually were

    This is actually a cool story, as a 2020 5* (and Thon’s little bro) committed to Howard.



    He was expected to pick UCLA. UCLA has now lost Maker to Howard and also one of their highest ranked commits to the G League.
