Now in its fourth year, FootballScoop’s Who Wears What study is an exercise that tracks changes in the college apparel industry, changes that often seem microscopic on a year-to-year basis but, over the course of time, will monitor the shifting sands of the industry.

For instance, last year’s news highlighted the Under Armour’s passing of Adidas. Evidence of that? We wrote that Adidas was “stuck with” James Harden. Now? That arrangement seems quite different.

In 2017, we have seen the near complete removal of Russell Athletic from the landscape. The Bowling Green, Ky.,-based brand was already hanging on by a thread in FBS, and that thread has been cut down to a single piece of twine. Ohio jumped ship. Georgia Tech announced plans to do at its next available opportunity. Even hometown team Western Kentucky left the brand, soon leaving Southern Miss as Russell’s only brand ambassador in FBS. And with that, it figures the Golden Eagles will soon jump ship as well.

Elsewhere, Nike remains the king of the major college football landscape. Adidas and Under Armour have carved out their respective territories, but it remains Nike’s countryside. The Swoosh owns 67.7 percent of the Power 5 contracts, claims primacy in every Power 5 league — 18 of the 24 available schools in the SEC and Big 12 wear Nike — and outfits 14 of the last 15 national champions, including all 12 teams to ever reach the College Football Playoff.

Conference USA
Charlotte – Nike
Florida Atlantic – Adidas
Florida International – Adidas
Louisiana Tech – Adidas
Marshall – Nike
Middle Tennessee – Nike
North Texas – Nike
Old Dominion – Under Armour
Rice – Adidas
Southern Miss – Russell Athletic
UAB – Under Armour
UTEP – Nike
UTSA – Adidas
Western Kentucky – Nike
BREAKDOWN: Nike 6 (42.9%), Adidas 5 (35.7%), Under Armour 2 (14.3%), Russell Athletic 1 (7.1%)

the rest of the conferences

But which will be the first school to leave tiny baller status behind and sign a deal with BBB?
Probably LA Tech since Ball is obsessed with everything LA.

Not sure Nike will be involved. Hearing adidas and UA are favorites. I'm leaning towards adidas.

MSUx wears Adidas and their stuff is horrid, for the most part.

If you have a simple look, I think Adidas would be fine. No worries, I have a feeling little brother will be following big brother UAB to under armor. 05-stirthepot

I think most kids think Under Armour is more trendy so that is a good route. Adidas seems like you're just going to the dollar rack. How long has UAB been with Under Armour?

How is adidas like the dollar rack? They're one of the most popular brands in the world.

I would much rather have UA, but based on things I've heard I think adidas might be the favorite.

It is just my opinion. When you go to Dick's you see UA shirts for $25 and Nike shirts for $25 then in the clearance a bunch of $17.99 adidas shirts. I know they are huge in soccer which is why I probably don't notice as much.

Last season was the first year.

When the russell deal was signed women's hoops had a year left on their current nike contract. By the time that year was up McGillis was in the ad's chair. JLM did not want to leave Nike. Nike has been good to that sport providing extra things, especially tons of giveaway stuff for her end of year golf tourney. McG said he understood and told her she did not have to switch. Baseball then followed suit.

Thanks for the info. I "assumed" that it had to do with something along those lines. I remember hearing many many many years ago when football went Nike (2001 or so) that Corky balked (no baseball pun intended) at baseball going to Nike as the baseball contract with Russell was much better financially at the time than Nike even remotely offered.

Nike is probably the best shoe on the market, but I'll always wear Adidas for no other reason than it being one of the two German brands (the other being Puma). Never liked Puma though.

I've really soured on Nike shoes. I can never keep a pair from falling apart. I've gotten some adidas lately from work and they are way better than any nikes I've had.
