UNIV. OF FLORIDA TRIES FRIENDLY APPROACH WITH SPORTS AGENTS

          The Univ. of FL (UF) "has decided to try a new approach
     at tackling the sports agents issue" by inviting those in
     "good standing" with the various pro sports leagues to
     lunch, according to David Jones of FLORIDA TODAY.  On
     October 18, any agent registered in the state and licensed
     by the NFLPA, MLBPA or the NBPA "will be allowed to attend"
     UF's Athlete Agent Education Day.  In the morning, UF execs
     will speak to agents about the "do's and don'ts in
     attempting to sign" the school's student-athletes.  The
     school's athletes are able to attend the event and meet with
     the agents.  Between 30-40 agents are "expected" to attend
     the event (FLORIDA TODAY, 9/10).
