READY, SET, LOGO: NCAA, ADIDAS PREPARE CLOSING ARGUMENTS

          NCAA attorneys will present their final written
     arguments to U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Van Bebber
     today in the suit brought by adidas America regarding the
     size restriction of commercial logos on players' uniforms,
     according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR.  adidas lawyers
     are "offering assurances that this case is not a precursor
     to walking billboards."  However, NCAA lawyers "warn" about
     the precedent of dropping restrictions on just apparel
     manufacturers, possibly leaving the NCAA "vulnerable to
     other companies that want equal representation on the
     uniform of the next Ricky Williams."  Big East Conference
     Commissioner Michael Tranghese: "This decision could have
     incredible ramifications" (K.C. STAR, 2/23).
