It looks like the folks at Nike are trying to get on the Michigan Wolverines’ good side before the university’s deal with adidas is up following the 2016-17 college football season.
Photos surfaced on social media that show the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon decked out in maize and blue.
Smart move by Nike. Create mock-up designs, leak it online. Hard for Michigan to ignore positive reactions from fans. pic.twitter.com/1IvB6YSRRA

Michigan previously turned down a deal with Nike when they signed their lucrative deal with adidas, but now they may be able to finally join the Nike uniform craze.
Regardless of who ends up signing an apparel deal with Michigan, it will be hard to top the $8.2 million per year that the school was getting from adidas.
