BREAKING: Boston College to be outfitted by Adidas for football, and New Balance for every other sport starting in the fall of 2021.

The Eagles will be the only Power 5 school to wear New Balance.

This makes sense given the regional nature of New Balance. I believe we floated such a deal here a few years ago after NB acquired Warrior. Under Armour just paid to get out of the Cincy deal. So, I wonder what they offered us to move on.

I see this as a bad thing, although I heard NB does make good sneakers. Kids want to wear Nikes not NB.

NO chance we get some sweet LA Gear?

The only Adidas schools that come to mind are Nebraska and Notre Dame, but ND was yrs ago. Hated Under Armor, preferred our Reebok stuff to that.

Adidas outfits a bunch of college football teams.

The NB deal is bad for basketball

BC is bad for basketball.

I think in the whole Addidas/Nike circuit thing and feeding kids to one-and-down schools is kinda over. The NBA is going to be taking those kids directly from AAU and putting them in Development Leagues. The whole college BB thing (which has been a joke for some time) will have to readjust in the new world. Pay-for-play simply will not be as big of a driver in new state (as these kids can just play professionally from the jump and not bother pretending to be students for 3 months).

BC would be better off waiting for a Nike deal in 2 years when Hafley has BC ranked in the top 15. The last time basketball had NB was under Gary Williams. I can’t see hockey wearing anything NB. Adidas sucks.

Go Eagles!

Nike footwear and apparel is hot garbage.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Besides the regular gnashing of teeth that comes with these deals from certain members of the board, I happen to believe that (as we saw with UnderArmour), it isn't about the name of the brand providing the sponsorship... it is all about the execution. NB has been very, very selective in the manner in which it has pursued partnerships. They have been signed with Maine and apparently are about to move in on Denver. They also recently entered a deal with the NBA. Bottom line is that if BC became their version of Maryland or Oregon, it is infinitely more valuable than being the 108th team in Nike's portfolio. The inclusion of Addidas for FB just means that there will be run-of-the-mill gear also available for folks who like to shop at Outlets from Kittery to Woodbury.

UCLA no longer an Under Armor school. Lucky them.

Pretty sure UA terminated that deal over the summer and UCLA sued them over it. Maybe they resolved the suit.
