Under Armour
They’ve pulled out of their deal with UCLA and now all Cal gear has been removed from their website.

Chances they end their deal with Auburn? I would presume we are their largest program

Isn’t Norte Dame with UA? They’re probably their largest account right now

What happened to the UCLA deal?

re: Under Armour
UCLA’s deal was nearly 300 million. For comparison, Auburn’s was less than 80. Notre Dame’s was around 90.

Auburn’s deal also included $10 million in shares that are worth about $2million now. I really doubt they’re itching to get out

Why was theirs so much more than ours?

re: Under Armour
I’m guessing the local Los Angeles market in comparison to Auburn and South Bend played a role in the difference

5extra years and UA publicly stated that wanted more presence in LA/West Coast markets + came right after Nike secured a bunch of schools for record amounts

If they’re ceasing to pursue collegiate deals, we’ll move to Adidas.

Omg, I hope not. Adidas produces the cheapest looking, ugliest uniforms in sports.

I wouldn't mind the Jordan logo on Auburn's unis. That would be pretty cool, especially in bball.

I’m not against Nike. I’m just saying what will make the most financial sense for the school. I don’t see Nike ponying up for AU

Don’t think anyone has been anti-Nike

UA just pays more.

Nike already has deals with Bama/UGA who operate in our markets. We don't offer Nike much value, the deal would reflect that

I'm happy with UA at this point.

As am I. If we were to move on I would be happy with Adidas or Jordan though. Like you said, we don’t add enough for Nike so even if we signed with them it would likely be a really poor contract for us.

Weren't there issues back in the early 2000s when football was wearing Nike cleats?

I seem to remember that Nike specified how the trainers could/couldn't do spat tape jobs because the Swoosh logo had to be visible.

I am not sure of the particulars, but Nike shite on us somehow. I remember Tubs covered up the swoosh with black tape.
