I'm going to set over/under on the number of new threads about UT swithing companies or being as valuable as ND at 487.

Any takers?
Are you counting the already existing Official Fashion Thread?

First time poster, been lurking for a while. I'm a UT grad and lifelong ND fan.

ND is sticking their neck out a bit on this - UA obviously has a much shorter resume than Nike or Adidas, and I think there is some concern about the quality of their products (e.g. shoes) versus Nike in particular.

But given (1) the money involved and (2) lukewarm reception to ND's Shamrock Series uniforms in recent years, it makes sense. Perhaps the one thing that pushed ND over the edge was adidas's decision to give Michigan "most favored nation" status (How Michigan remains No. 1 with Adidas - Portland Business Journal). ND wasn't going to get that with Nike (and Oregon), leaving a spot for Under Armour.

Also interesting is that ND is potentially taking some of its compensation as UA stock. I'm not sure of any other school who's had that type of agreement with their outfitter.

UA is a pretty well established company. A portion of stock certainly won't hurt them in the long run and could be paying off big time in the future.

This was discussed a week ago wasn't it? I don't think the details were released but pretty awesome if your a notre dame fan. I think the SEC only has 3 adidas schools? (MSU, A&M and us). I remember reading an article where several schools were unhappy with Adidas because of a factory closing overseas and the company refused to pay workers or something like that (especially Wisconsin) but I guess Notre Dames decision was money.

Hart's decision will be money as well. Book it.

Probably Nike for UT, but UA getting into the big leagues with ND should up our share of the pot. Not to ND's level, but good nonetheless.

Notre Dame, sucks
They covered up the rape of a female student by a football player, and the young lady ended up killing herself because of her treatment

Under Armor....leaving adidas behind. Why can't we? I like UA's stuff. Thoughts?

ND has $90,000,000 reasons why. UT wouldn't get close to that.
