Watching the Notre Dame men's game last night I couldn't help but notice the UGLY uniforms they were wearing. Which brings me to the question, why is it that everytime Adidas tries to pull this crap it turns into an ugly epic fail??
I guess the ND Shamrock Series uniforms we wore weren't THAT bad, but even those took some time to grow on me.
Is Adidas' marketing dept. really that far behind Nike's? How does Nike have an upper hand year in and year out and Adidas continues to disappoint and flounder?
No idea why it's so difficult to make a decent looking uniform, but Adidas has consistently failed at doing it. I hate the uniforms with just the first letter on the front, they look like pee wee uniforms to me.
I actually don't mind Adidas' uniforms when they keep them conservative.
Keep it simple stupid iyam. Schools like Nebraska, ND, UCLA, Tennessee, etc. don't need exotic looking uniforms.
I guess that's the question. Conservative sure no problem. The problem is when they try to get creative. Are they really that out of touch? I mean the crap they put out in last nights game was just laughable.
It's almost as if they're saying, ''Well we can't compete with Nike so we're just going to mock them and put out crap''.
In 3-4 years Nike will be kicking Adidas' azz in soccer as well. Think they are roughly tied in that market share right now..
I'll still take Adidas boots over Nike any day tho. Puma over both
I've always been a "Kangaroos" guy

Asking that kind of question your going to get the same idiots that keep saying iphone is better than droid. Never mind the superior product, it's about marketing and perception, which nike has in spades.
It seems to me that they're competing with Under Armour more than Nike. I don't really remember Adidas going out of their comfort zone until UA started trying new stuff with Maryland. Maybe the Black Tennessee jerseys and the Shamrock ND ones.
Now, they're going for ugly looks just for attention. I can understand a school like Cincinnati who could use the pub, but ND should tell Adidas to not touch the classic look or gtfo imesho.
I can't see Adidas ever stepping in on traditional teams like Indiana or Kansas. Those teams would laugh at Adidas if they tried to pitch that crap to them.
I don't know I just don't get it. How does Adidas suck this bad...
Kansas and UCLA are wearing the swim trunks jerseys.
Terrible uniforms aren't limited to Adidas.
An unveiling of some, uh, creative new Adidas basketball uniforms Thursday was widely -- and hilariously -- panned by the online peanut gallery.

American basketball hits new lows almost every day
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Nike spends more on marketing and market research per annum than Adidas generates in net sales.
Not that Adidas needs to throw down billions to at least have an inkling of what doesn't suck though. Adidas US is the problem.
That sheds a little light on it
I am going to be very pissed off if Florida ever switches from Nike to Under Armor or Adidas.
And I'd be very happy if ND ever switches to Nike
Won't happen anytime soon imo, UF, FSU, Bama, and a few others ( Oregon, duh ) will be Nike for the foreseeable future
UNC and Duke are others
I don't remember the details but I do recall reading about how Nike has certain colleges locked up for a good while

Stanford will be a lifer with Nike.
I don't think USC will go elsewhere for a while either.
I am sure there are a few that Nike will try and keep over others. I also imagine they would love to have a school like ND.
Yeah word, imo Nike should make all american pro sport uniforms
Its a god damn american icon.... Addidas for the NBA ? that is the dumbest crap I ever heard of
UA uni's> Both of them

You keep telling yourself that...
I have. And It feels awesome being right as well.
Nike can keep the bowling shoes though. We need to go back to all black shoes.
USC is among a handful of schools that gets to test new items.
Adidas tries really hard to keep up with Nike and always ends up embarrassing themselves.
