Cincinnati Bearcats officially join Under Armour

Recommended Posts

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

In reading this, it states that all home uniforms will be white and all road unis, black. So is the football team moving to white unis at home?

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

They still have about 25 FBS schools that they outfit.

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.

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.

I find it hard to forgive Adidas after they knowingly produced this.

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.
