Auburn Forward Allen Payne Blames Under Armour
Auburn concluded a disappointing 14-16 season Wednesday with a 74-56 blowout loss to South Carolina in the first round of the SEC tournament. Rather than blame the shortcomings of head coach Tony Barbee, who was fired following the game, senior forward Allen Payne directed his frustration elsewhere.
I can say this now… We’ll struggle as long as we are under Under Armour.

Never mind that the team that Auburn fell to on Wednesday is also an Under Armour client. Between Payne’s tweet and the issues that U.S. Speedskating had with their suits during their medal-less Winter Olympics showing, the past month has been a rough one for the Baltimore-based company.
