    Sounds cool, but what does it mean? Does it at least mean we can see a consistent shade of red used?

    Consistent colors for all uniforms across sports should be part of it IIRC.

    I was under the impression you could be Nike Elite in one sport but not another.

    But yes, custom colors is one benefit of Nike Elite.

    Where do you see this tweet from ISU FB? It doesn't appear to have come from the official team twitter account.

    I know we've been Nike Elite (at least using the old classification) since 2008, or earlier. Right before we got the new uniform design is when we were Nike Elite in football and maybe a few other sports. I have emails from Pollard to confirm that :-)

    Maybe now we are elite in all sports? It basically means better quality uniforms, better choices, better customization options, etc. For example, prior to Nike elite in football, our contract with Nike in terms of uniforms was crap - they literally picked the color "red" out of their standard set of colors and that's what color our uniforms were. We had screenprinted numbers because the contract didn't included embroidered numbers. High School teams had better uniforms than us.

    For FANS, it means better product in the stores. More options. Better, higher quality Nike apparel. More of it in more places. All the cool stuff you see in Eastbay from other teams, Elite teams start getting that. And it's the true school color, Nike matches it.

    Back to uniforms, not sure about men's basketball. They might have already been "Elite." The first year after the new logo, we were not Elite. This would have been Brackin's sophomore year. Our uniform color (road) was NOT one of the 2 new shades of cardinal, but rather the closest shade that Nike would offer under the contract. It's weird how it all works, but a good way to tell the contract of a team is: Do their uni's colors' not represent what the school colors are? Do the uni's look cheap? If yes, you're contract sucks.

    Horrible quality:

    Re: Nike Elite!

    did a quick search:

    From the Nike press release:Nike created the uniforms specifically for superior performance and lower environmental impact. The fabric of the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum shorts are made from 100 percent recycled polyester while the jersey fabric is made from at least 96% recycled polyester. Both short and jersey are tailored for the optimal efficiency of movement and are five percent lighter than the previous Nike Hyper Elite uniform.Read more: Check Out The Hideous New Uniforms Nike Is Making College Basketball's Best Teams Wear - Business Insider
