You all know how everybody has been saying that since Maryland has become an ALL-UnderAmour school, we have become the Oregon of the East. I know you all want this to be true, but there have been a few things that lead me to believe that our MD athletic program can not be even close to the level that Oregon is currently at.
A few weeks ago, I ran into the basketball team at the airport when they came home from their tournament in Puerto Rico. Almost all of the player were wearing NIKE shoes and other NIKE gear underneath their UA travel suits. I asked them why they weren't wearing all Under Armour gear, and they responded that their gear man doesn't hook them up with all of the good UA stuff, so they would rather wear NIKE. They also said that while on the trip in Puerto Rico they found out that every person in the Temple program had been given the UA Charge RC running shoes, which have yet to be released to the public. Some of the players seemed a bit upset that Temple has gotten gear that they have not.
Maryland is Under Armour's Flagship school right?
Well then, the gear guy for our athletic teams needs to be giving our athletes all of the latest and greatest UA gear so that we are not embarrassed when we get compared to other schools and labeled "the Oregon of the East". Our Athletes need to be wearing all UA everywhere they go.
Does anybody know the name of this gear guy?
