I understand that Notre Dame has a major contract ($60 mil) with Adidas to supply clothing and apparel to their varsity sports program; so their tennis team wears their clothing and shoes. What other schools/teams have sponsorships like these...how much and with whom?

yeah im pretty sure i know for a fact that both of their football teams are nike so probably the rest of the varsity teams, like notre dame, are sponsored by nike

UCLA is adidas.. i'm 100 percent sure of that. nobody would use an adidas football unless they got paid lots of money to do so

Surprisingly, not as many teams as you think get these "blanket" contracts as Nike is trying to get fewer while adidas is trying to get more colleges. At a good amount of schools, coaches for each individual teams pick whatever company they want, depending on how much they might give the coaches, discounts, etc

Also, I'm pretty sure ND doesn't have the biggest contract anymore. Michigan is ungodly huge.

But here is a list off the top of my head:

Here is a list of notable ones:

adidas has Tennessee, NC State, Michigan, TAMU, UCLA, Mississippi State(i think as this is a new one), Kansas, Indiana, Northwestern, Arkansas

Nike has Duke, Miami, Florida State, Texas, Southern California, LSU, Virginia, among a lot others

Surprising schools that don't have a blanket contract: Florida, Clemson, Texas Tech, Baylor

Neither. I'm a Nike girl myself. I have long skinny feet and the rest of me is also long and skinny, and neither Adidas, not Prince make clothes or shoes like that.

Nice. I do notice that Nike outfits tend to be a little tighter than others.

Should have gone to a Nike school. Done with school yet?

since you don't play/hurt, you should still be on medical and thus scholarship. no?

Yeah, I kept all the money they gave me. I mean my medical issues are unfortunate and there's nothing I can do about it, and so I believe they're still obligated to give it to me since I didn't do anything to warrant it being taken away.

good. i was just making sure that non-revenue sports get taken care of as well as money ball.

so now that you don't play, do you get bored with all the free time?

Not really, it's nice to work part time and have extra money. Plus I mean I have a lot more doctor's appointments to fill up my time. My grades are a lot better too! I still play now and then, so I haven't given it up entirely. Gotta keep my touch goin.

Just Thursday-Saturday. I cut back. Hahaha. One week my housemates and I wanted to see if we could find a bar event (trivia, karaoke, etc) every single night of the week. And we did.

If I could find a good full time job I'd be working. I think I'm going to go work at one of the yacht clubs on Nantucket.
