RE: Cincinnati and Under Armour Buyout
Frankly, I've just not experienced a problem with the quality of the UC/UA licensed retail product and I've purchased my fair share since the deal was inked years ago. I don't think they offer as much fan gear as Adidas did, especially in terms of winter outerwear. Polo shirts are certainly cut to a slimmer profile, though that's been trending in clothing generally for the past few years and people tend to just step up one size as needed. And shirts seem to be slightly higher priced than the Nike ones I see the next aisle over for OSU. So we're all paying a little more for UC to get a lot more with UA.

UA now appears to be paying the price for their past spending spree for college licensing rights. In UC's favor right now is Bearcat football--maybe at an all-time high in terms of national visibility. If that can be sustained (at a consistent top 25 level) for the next couple of years it bodes well for the next agreement, though the dollars may never match what UA offered.

From a basketball standpoint, I really hope we can land a deal with Nike/Jordan. Obviously, we won't get the UA treatment or dollars but from a recruiting standpoint, it's a huge boon.

call me a pessimist, but I doubt our recruiting gets much better because a bunch of kids like the jumpy guy logo on their shoes, and I don't think potential recruits are going to replace the millions we might lose when the deal is up.

Not that I am aware of. They seem focused on soccer stuff outside of the USA. I don't think Champion or Reebok is involved at any real level either.

I think it has more to do with the Nike/Jumpman AAU teams and tournaments than it does with a style preference.

Although if you listen to Alex Meachum's podcasts, just about every popular 90s and 00s player he has interviewed has mentioned how much they loved the red/black and Jordan combo. Probably had a lot to do with the Bulls and Jordan being so popular at the same time.

All favoritism aside, the Black/Red color palette is probably to most attractive two-color palette out there.
