NCAA rules Baylor cannot wear their new Adidas jerseys

Earlier this month, Adidas unveiled the specialty uniforms that they would be providing to the programs that they sponsor.

While some did still have sleeves, the jerseys were a major improvement over what they had come up with a year ago.

But that doesn’t mean that they were all approved by the NCAA.

The uniform that Adidas created for Baylor was said ‘Sic Em Bears’ on the front of the jersey. On Wednesday, the day the Big 12 tournament is set to begin, the NCAA ruled that Baylor would not be allowed to wear those uniforms.

Can the NCAA ban sleeved jerseys, too?

      Because Adidas is just interested in pushing merch. They’ve just garnered a bunch of free press for their newest horrid neon nightmare novelty shirt.

      Agree with both posts. Adidas is just trying to one-up what Nike does for Oregon. It’s all a money grab effort. But to answer the last question of the post, no, the NCAA won’t rule out sleeved jerseys. Those already exist. What they’re trying to ban is obnoxious. This is a good first step.

    Did Baylor really think a slogan would be OK on the jersey?
