These players play different when they feel good going out there to play. Anybody remember how we had the black unis versus South Carolina? We came out and started dropping the hammer on them on defense. They were out of the game before they knew it. As long as the unis look good I'm for them. But most weeks we can wear our traditional Orange & White.
Adidas baseball cleats are terrible. fwiw

Yeah as long as we get some cleats similar to the NFL with the metallic finish under the bottoms. Seahawks and the Giants have some smooth looking cleats.

I remember when I played highschool bball and we were an adidas school. It felt like we were playing in construction boots. Coach had them switched out after three games cause of foot pain.

Haven't been a fan of adidas since.

Adidas is terrible man. People don't realize we have the worst athletic gear out there.

Its not just appearance and unis. Adidas cleats suck, Nike gloves are probably better too.

Dude no one wants to look boring playing football. I'm thinking about getting some Lime green cleats to work these prospects in. Flash attracts kids man.

Is this just a pipe dream or are we nearing the end of our Adidas contract and may have some options with Nike/ Under Armour?

As far as comfort, I'm Under Armor all the way. Their cleats are surprisingly VERY comfortable. Best pair I've ever owned, as a matter of fact...

but as far as unis? Nike has hit just as many times as they've missed...but when they've hit WOW.

Adidas is just ....ok.

I prefer Nike over Under Armour cleats too. They're lighter and look better.
