    Yeah they still don't have gold polos either. Pretty pathetic.

    Agreed. It was the first time I've been in the bookstore since Adidas took over and, had I not known they were our official supplier, I would not have guessed it from the bookstore. Walking in, you first hit the UA section, then the Nike, then all of the golf brand shirts, followed by sweatshirts. I didn't even find the Adidas section (up front by the registers, but against the windows and not where the natural flow of traffic would take you first) until I'd already looked at everything else. To top it off, the Adidas section seemed about half the size of the UA section and didn't have anything worth buying.

    Adidas was not my first choice, but I've been pretty impressed with the on-field stuff and coaches gear thus far. However, if they aren't getting that stuff to the bookstore, they definitely aren't getting it out elsewhere, which means it isn't being bought and the brand (both Tech and Adidas) isn't spreading. Hopefully they are still just rolling it out and the bookstore will be overflowing with the official stuff in the Fall, but I'm beginning to wonder.

    Adidas hopefully will make a push this season. I hate to have to buy the other brands, but if they give us nicer gear then so be it. Throwing a t shirt at us every once in a while doesn't cut it

    This makes no sense. It is in the best interest of Tech and Adidas to sell as much apparel as possible. The bookstore should want to sell as much as possible also.

    You have to remember it’s the GT book store. This was the same place that sold diploma frames that didn’t match the size of the actual diplomas.

    GT diplomas are absurdly large (inb4 gtphd explains the importance of diploma sizes)

    Never Again. GT was thoroughly punished for this abomination.

    It is almost double the size of a uga diploma (should be 3 or 4 x) and the same size as my law school diploma. Yes. They are big.

    I would actually consider that jersey as well. I do love the old school logos tho.
    Adidas, I hope you're reading and start putting some good stuff for sale for fans, and not the same stuff you've had since August! I might just get Nike or Under Armour since Adidas still isn't releasing to the public anything that great.

    I'd purchase that hat quicker than a UGA linebacker can bond out of jail
