As if schools didn’t already have enough financial concerns…

Ouchy ouch.

Under Armour is attempting to break its 15-year, $280 million contract with UCLA.

“Under Armour has recently made the difficult decision to discontinue our partnership with UCLA, as we have been paying for marketing benefits that we have not received for an extended time period,” the company said in a statement Saturday. “The agreement allows us to terminate in such an event and we are exercising that right.”

UA, of course, has other licensing deals with schools, like Notre Dame, so the interesting question is whether this is a one-shot situation, or a harbinger of things to come for others.

Between whatever Leach is looking at, the way he’s wearing his mask and Junior putting on a few pounds since he bought that suit, this is a target rich environment.  Have at it.

The inadvertent whistle

Typical SEC fan:  Man, it’s hard to imagine conference refs being any worse at their jobs than they are now.

Ron Foxcroft, “the most trusted name in North America when it comes to whistles”:  Hold my beer.

Life doesn’t have to come at me that fast, thanks.

Shit, I’m just hoping Todd Monken and Jamie Newman have enough time together before the season begins to get on the same page, while over here, Mike Griffith is already speculating that Georgia will have more than one quarterback start a game in 2020.

In honor of the potential for The Rolling Stones v. Trump, I have to post this:

Were I the judge, I could have a lot of fun writing that opinion.
