Interesting. It is my understanding that only "Nike schools" were invited to play in the PK-80 Phil Knight Tournament, where OU plays in late November.

Business is business. Does this mean that the Jordan Brand is paying OU more than Nike is willing to pay?

Big money in shoes and sporting wear.

It's my understanding that Jordan Brand is a Nike subsidiary.

All this changes is the swoosh will be a jumpman. Nike is still involved

Not sure. That's been really secretive, I've heard both they'll move after Christmas and wait till next year. So honestly I don't know.

What kind of announcement is at 5? Press release or some sort of press conference/event? Think I would've hyped an event, but that's me.

I've heard next year, as it takes time to do bulk orders like this. Would think it'd be too hard to switch after Christmas because they'd have to do mass orders for local stores to have the same type of gear.

Local stores is also where I first heard about this rumor, as they have to start to place their orders for next year around now, and were told it would be Jordan branded gear.

rumor from another site was a presser .. but i would think that would have been released by now ... so maybe just a press release?

Only one team per league will wear the Jordan Brand.

Texas is wearing the KD Brand.

Good for the recruits and possibly program i guess.

Personally i hate Jordan brand and anything to do with him, would have loved to be just Nike. I won't buy anything with that dumb logo on it

My guess is it will be on July 1, 2018 since the current nuke deal expires on June 30, 2018

Pretty sure that Nike deal was extended thru 2024.
