Champion number font renaissance?

Watching Northwestern/Northeastern, NW has switched from Crillee to the Champion block number font. Adidas seems to be implementing this one more and more, with Houston and Temple also in on it. Any other teams using it? I know the font has its fans here, but for me, I always associate it with low quality and cheapness.

Count me in the 'low quality and cheapness" camp. Maybe it was just a coincidence, but I still can't forgive Champion for those Bills and Jets horrible 1994 "throwback" uniforms.

I saw that too, MJ- first thing I noticed when #22 scored the TD in the 4th quarter. His numbers were pretty clearly Stahl's pro block, but the others looked more like the normal font used for football jerseys (the name of which escapes me at the moment)

I approve - bring back the Champion font! Call me a sentimentalist fool whose opinion has been rosied by adolesence, which took place in the early-90s, but I love this font almost as much as I LOVE the USC Trojans font (my favorite of all-time). :D

More likely than not, the Adidas teams that are wearing the old Champion block on their uniforms are wearing jerseys that they ordered last season. That was when ACO/Champion began making the football uniforms for Adidas. However, ACO has begun using a standard full block now for the Adidas jerseys instead of the Champion block.
