Adidas got what they deserve for their “Sic ‘Em Bears” stunt

As covered by Uni-Watch, Adidas knew it was possibly going to happen. Baylor knew it could happen. Yet they made it anyway.

Good for NCAA for standing their ground. Shame on Adidas for creating an ugly set, a stupid idea and everything else they are.
