Univ. of Michigan apparel is on "one of the most frenetic buying binges in the history of college sports," according to Bill Halls of the DETROIT NEWS. Caps, T- shirts, sweat shirts and five styles of Rose Bowl shirts "are among the most popular items." Another "hot" product is the No. 2 jersey of Heisman-hopeful Charles Woodson, which sells for $89.95. Michigan, which led U.S. public universities in logo product sales last FY with $4.7M in licensing revenues, "should easily surpass that" this FY. Halls wrote that the school "even could challenge its own record" of $6.2M, set in '92-93 (DETROIT NEWS, 12/8).
