Earlier this month, Adidas unveiled the specialty uniforms that they would be providing to the programs that they sponsor.
While some did still have sleeves, the jerseys were a major improvement over what they had come up with a year ago.
But that doesn’t mean that they were all approved by the NCAA.
The uniform that Adidas created for Baylor was said ‘Sic Em Bears’ on the front of the jersey. On Wednesday, the day the Big 12 tournament is set to begin, the NCAA ruled that Baylor would not be allowed to wear those uniforms.
Baylor will not wear “Sic ‘Em Bears” uniforms in postseason. NCAA ruled only team name or mascot can be on front. #SicEm

Can the NCAA ban sleeved jerseys, too?
