As of today Cincinnati is officially with Under Armour, and there are two major changes right off the bat. First, the numbers will no longer be italic, which will look a lot cleaner. Second, UA has introduced the "Cincinnati Stripe", which will apear on all uniforms and is derived from campus landmarks:

I'm excited for this because Adidas is awful and Under Armour is a step up, but I don't like that pattern.

I guess this means the end of the cat scratches. I actually liked those

So how many schools are we down to for Adidas? 5?

5? Not even. The wikipedia page has a giant list, granted it's all levels of schools, but still

Yeah, but there's only about 12 major schools they supply, it's not a very big pool.

I just wish their basketball program would go back to Jordan

You said it. These were so cool.

For some reason I always thought the 7 blocks represented Cincinnati's 7 hills, but I guess there's 8 blocks so I guess they don't mean anything.

That look really hasn't aged well, IMO.

I think mainly because the style of the uniform is so different than what we're used to seeing these days. I bet if you stuck the basic style elements on a modern template, it would look good.

I meant more along the lines of the Major 5 Conferences. I forgot Miami and Arizona State both switched over this year from Nike.

Why was Cincinnati with jordan? Its a good basketball school but I wouldn't say its worthy of a jordan sponsorship.

It's sad that we still have major programs with Adidas. Yes, money talks, but how any AD or school would want to stick his/her kids with Adidas' S*** is beyond me. Unfortunately Miami and Arizona State didn't get the memo... Can't wait to see what UA cooks up for UC.
