    Air-Jordan brand FOOTBALL uniforms???

    Is it just me, or is this sorta weird?

    Jordan brand, a division of Nike, is now making College FOOTBALL uniforms - featuring the image of Michael Jordan jumping with a Basketball.

    I guess it's no worse than the swoosh we've been pimping... er... wearing for 25 years now. Just seems kinda weird....


    Alabama Football uniforms, circa 1961... I still like the look....

    Nothing new. Michigan has been using them since Harbaugh got there.

    This has been around for a bit but I agree it does look weird to me.

    Wow. I didn't realize.




    Still seems weird to me.

    But hey - different strokes. I suppose I should be glad we don't have stickers on our jerseys for Tide detergent, Coca-Cola, and Great Southern Wood.....


    Our 2028 football uniforms?

    This is likely an unpopular opinion but I would take advertisements on uniforms over commercials. The problem is that isn't what would happen they would just keep the same amount of commercials.

    Yep. That was the "Theory" of cable television, for those old enough to remember - you'd pay a monthly fee, and in exchange you'd get some channels that don't run commercials. LOL!!! We all saw how that turned out.

    Even some of the channels on satellite radio run commercials - so what are we paying the monthly fee for?

    I expect CFB uniforms will eventually look like some of the soccer uniforms you see - the name of the sponsor(s) MUCH more prominent than anything else.....

    I doubt that. Would really make it difficult for them to justify the "amateur" status the players if they have advertisements on their jerseys.

    I do think we'll see it in the NFL. The NBA is already doing it.

    Well, respectfully, Alabama has had "Advertisements" on our uniforms since the early 1990's - and Nike has been SELLING those jerseys for a pretty penny.
    We've got millionaire Baseball signees playing CFB - like the QB at aTm, right? Oh, but he's an "Amateur" as long as he says "Simon Says" before each football game, right???

    Frankly, "IMO" the whole "Amateur status" myth of College football and basketball players has been a joke for decades now.

    I know, but the optics of it in today's climate would prevent them from doing it. The NCAA isn't going to want anything to hurt the cash cow they have now and will put off paying players as long as possible.

    I don't think that the NCAA makes much, if any, money from FBS football.

    Dude, you're way behind the times.....lol

    Of course North Carolina wears the Jordan Brand (it's not considered Air Jordan Brand). UNC now has some of the best looking uniforms in college football now since the change as they added the argyle from the basketball team to their jerseys and helmets.

    Florida will debut their Jordan jerseys on the 17th in Atlanta.

    All that I know of that wear (or fixing to switch to) Jordan Brand football uni's:

    North Carolina
    Michigan
    Oklahoma
    Loyola High School (Los Angeles, CA.)

    Those are the only ones I can name off the top of my head

    Well, the NCAA itself is a non-profit. We're really talking about the member schools they serve.
