  • WISCONSIN BADGERS READY TO SIGN APPAREL CONTRACT

         The Univ of Wisconsin is close to signing an apparel
    contract with a leading athletic manufacturer, according to Bob
    Wolfley of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL.  The deal would
    reportedly be similar to the one Nike has signed with Illinois,
    in which Nike paid the school $3.5M for "allowing the sportswear
    company to outfit all of its athletic teams."  Vince Sweeney,
    Wisconsin Dir of Athletic Marketing/ Licensing, said they have
    had discussions with both Nike and Reebok, but anticipated talks
    with others.  Nike closed a seven-year deal with Illinois earlier
    this week for the rights to sell Illini apparel and market itself
    as the school's "exclusive supplier of shoes and uniforms"
    (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL, 6/1)....Wisconsin will name their
