    Tech fans are born dissatisfied.

    I wasn’t born dissatisfied.

    I became dissatisfied when adidas decided to give us the Walmart version of the hat we have been begging for.

    Did you look at the items for the other schools? My guess is there are contractual reasons why 99% of what's listed on their site for the teams is just generic Adidas stuff, whereas you can find much more Adidas stuff going to each school's bookstore.

    Honestly, most of them just have generic gear in roughly their school color (like how the GT section just has a bunch of non-GT branded navy blue stuff). Washington seems to have the most branded stuff by a wide margin.

    Edit: which was likely your point

    Supposedly, Adidas clears out older team gear at the end of the summer in anticipation of new gear for the upcoming season. That's what I've heard anyways. There is also an adidas store at lenox that I plan on checking to see if they have more GT gear.

    I edited my post, but yeah, it's clearly not like they're just giving us the short end of the stick. There are obviously other reasons for why they don't have most of their customized content on the site.

    Even in the middle of football season last year, there were only about a half dozen GT branded things.

    Yet there's a lot on the bookstore website that's not listed there, so what does it matter?

    If these don't sell there is no reason to think Adidas will put out a higher quality version.

    He was the last competent pass rusher we had, correct? I so much look forward play makers on defense again under CGC...
