    There is a TON of GT Gear the staff and team is rocking in these videos that I hope comes available. I am also curious to see if Adidas does something with the 404takeover and other elements CGC is running. Dude is a perfect weatherballon for adidas about what designs might sell.

    I've got a great looking one from about 5 years ago. Obviously not Adidas, but there ARE some available.

    So, when are they doing the baseball jersey reveal? Why are the Celerbrating Black Culture/Ballroom collection basketball jerseys not for sale like they are for other adidas schools?

    Right. I see they have Kansas and Indiana but they have Miami too. That one I don’t understand

    So... when do you guys think we will see new stuff? Adidas.com is a joke. There is like 6 things available. They should have over 30 items available.

    My only conclusion is that there must not be many of us that want to buy this stuff - if there were, Adidas (a company in business to make $$) would be producing and selling the products.

    What really amazes me is that there are so many items that were produced in very, very low quantities - seen on coaches and staff. Why would Adidas not run these in larger quantities so that they could sell enough to cover their losses on the "freebies"?

    I just really do NOT understand.

    We’ve been with adidas for 6 months. If we have the same small selection at this time next year then I’d be concerned but right now no. I think they put our small quantities to see if there’s a demand. If so, then I’d assume they’ll drop more this summer and fall for football season.

    To be fair, their website has even less stuff for Miami, but I am sure they have more stuff in stores.

    ADTS said as much in one of the first Toddcast. Normal full ramped up production takes about a year from when the contract is signed. This summer, thinking fan day, will have a ton of fresh stuff from adidas in the bookstore.

    I CANNOT comprehend the fact that Adidas doesn't offer the clothing they give the team for a slightly inflated price on Adidas.com... it's free advertising with as much collins and the team are on social media.

    I personally think Adidas is just dense and only care about what's up Kanye Wests a$$.

    Like jeez, you basically have all the coaches and players in basic gear we would LOVE. Yet, they refuse to offer it to the public. Only crummy tshirts with bad designs...

    If they are in the business of making money they must be getting it good from other places because they failed at this and other college sports.

    Nike has it DOWN. At least 25+ items on the majority of the major programs.

    I think they make enough money that they can afford to hold back a few designs from us fans so that the players have some unique, exclusive pieces. And honestly I’m okay with that.

    It isn't about money. Adidas is a$20B (revenue) company. The amount of profit they would earn off of sales to Tech fans is insignificant.

    It is about exposure. Adidas makes gear for the athletic teams and provides it gratis in return for logos on the uniforms. That's what Adidas gets out of it. And that is why you see custom made (or very low quantity produced) products for the coaching staff, players, etc. Personally, I have one of the players' shirts and they fit better than the crud in the bookstore (I have long arms).

    My overall impression is that adidas wants the exposure with minimal worry about unsold inventory, which ultimately, becomes a charge to earnings.

    Other than my free STH tee, I just am not excited about what's available for the fans.
