UNC puts Jordan on the side of their Football Helmet

BigBlueDownTheShore : 8/8/2017 4:13 pm


Now I would totally get this if UNC had no other superior athletes from their school. However, LT one of the greatest football players of all time went there. How the hell do you put a basketball player on the side of their helmet.

Probably $$$$
When Michael Jordan gets busted...

...I'm sure UNC will remove those decals. Until then, I can sort of see why they would pick MJ as the symbol of their athletic program over LT.

I think I read somewhere that Jordan Brand is doing the uni's for FB and basketball this year for the team (also Michigan).
Pretty lame

Logo on the jersey is fine, because that's all it is. A logo.

Agree if its small on the jersey, there is no problem, but the dam Basketball Player on the Helmet.
Most giants fans

probably don't even know where LT went to College.

Jordan is sponsoring the football team this year for the first time.
I'm sure there's no money

Or shenanigans involved here. Unc is such an upstanding institution of higher learning and the NCAA has done a great job of oversight.
put Dean smith on it

for his helmet?
Jordan is also easier to depict in a simple logo

I don't know that you could even do that with a football player unless you just put his initials on the side of the helmet. Even then you'd end up with a bunch of clowns thinking it was for LaDanian Tomlinson.
it's stupid

Haha. Right?

It's those swahili classes that keep the players eligible. Nice little scam they have going on campus.
Meh, they should put a "Real" athlete on the Helmet

The Jumpman logo of the Jordan Brand is right up front, and even on the side of practice helmets, replacing the regular olí Nike logo that was on the gear last year:

jumpman - ( New Window )
It's the Jordan brand, not just basketball

Haha, probably?

(that's directed at the OP, not you)
I'm not sure why this is so complicated  
Mike in Long Beach : 8/9/2017 10:39 am : link
the Jordan logo transcends basketball. It's iconic. He went to that school and has one of the top 5 most recognizable American sports logos ever. I'd venture to say it's #4 behind the Nike swoosh, The Yankees interlocking NY, and the Cowboys star. I've got no issues at all.
Yes, Mike  
CT Charlie : 8/9/2017 11:28 am : link
but the Jumpman is a BRAND logo for Air Jordan, not the symbol of a team. That's why people say it's like putting the Nike swoosh on a helmet -- fine on a jersey or the nape of the helmet but not where the school logo usually goes.

At least it's only for the practice helmets, but I still think it's lame.
