Just heard from someone who would know, & they said it won’t be happening at Arizona.

Considering we just re-signed our contract with nike, I wouldn't think we would've been a candidate anyways.

Cal would have been the school, it if we're still under Nike 

 

I wish we still had the Jordan Brand for basketball at least but UA has done a solid job on our uniforms

I don't get it.  They're still just Nike uniforms.  Why the hell should anybody care if they swap out the usual swoosh for a different logo?

 

Good Lord, people can get themselves excited over the stupidest stuff.

While you're absolutely correct, kids freakin LOVE the Jumpman logo.. Also, Nike has a history of reserving the use of the Jumpman logo for its slightly higher end products (comparatively speaking).. I would compare it to Chevy/GMC, where you can get the same exact truck model in the most equivalent trim-level, but the GMC will cost slightly more and have a few more standard bells-and-whistles, thus giving the basic impression that GMC is a bit nicer than Chevrolet.. I think the same basic principle applies here, although like you said, it's literally the EXACT same uniform in this case, just with a different logo..

 

Plus.... RECRUITS

I can affirm this. Everywhere in my school a ton of kids (usually the ones who like are obsessed with basketball) always are wearing "their Js". It's really crazy how some kids are obsessed with a certain brand. I know a couple people who are like this but with adidas. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

It's not the uniforms, but more of the off the field perks. Offering a pair of Jordans to a kid will make a difference, and not just one, but multiple pairs, possibly exclusive releases.

Can't Nike schools wear Jordan shoes anyway? I've seen Michigan State basketball players wear Jordan shoes throughout the years.

It may be more exclusive in terms of the newer releases but I believe they can still do this.

I think they meant the Jordan teams give out team exclusive shoes to their players, you are just showing cases of players choosing to (possibly) buy and wear Jordans in game. That's allowed, but it isn't a perk like getting a pair of shoes that only was made for 20 people in the world.

I can't believe we are already at the end of the season. It seems that the uniforms were a lot more tame this year than past but maybe we are just used to all the different concepts teams go with now
