The Huskies have decided to stick with the swoosh, agreeing to a 10-year, $35 million deal with Nike.
That figure -- which includes actual cash and product -- is nearly three times the value of UW's exisiting uniform contact, also with Nike.
And since Nike is the current uniform provider, this contract doesn't mean that the Huskies will necessarily have any uniform changes anytime soon ... and they certainly won't look Duck-like unless they want to. Woodward said the school decides its look and the uniform provider complies, not the other way around.
Speaking of Oregon ... Woodward also had an answer for those UW fans who fear that supporting Nike is an indirect way of supporting the Ducks through Phil Knight: "Last I saw, Oregon fans and citizens of the state of Oregon are flying Boeing airplanes, they shop at Costco and they use Microsoft Windows."
Never miss a local story.
Finally, since Nike is the company that brought the "weasel" logo to Montlake, Woodward pointed out that it has almost been phased out in favor of the block "W." The decision on giving Nike another shot at another logo hasn't been made.
