We must protect dis house...

Reported in The State today....South Carolina officials are in negotiations with Under Armour to make the Baltimore-based manufacturer the official apparel provider for many of the Gamecocks’ athletics teams.

USC’s deal with Russell was worth about $300,000 in the final year of the contract. Auburn’s five-year deal with Under Armour is believed to be worth about $2 million a year. The Gamecocks’ football program is at the end of a four-year deal with Russell to produce the team’s uniforms and is nearing the end of a two-year, shoe deal with Reebok. If USC chooses Under Armour, the Gamecocks would join Maryland, Auburn and Texas Tech as the only Division I-A programs wearing the company’s uniforms.

More money for USC and with that...what are ya'lls thought? Should they go with Under Armour or with Russell? What about Nike?
