HUSKER DO: The agenda for Friday’s Nebraska Board of Regents meeting includes “a vote by the regents on a five-year extension” of the Univ. of Nebraska’s contract with adidas. The potential agreement “has been reviewed and recommended by the Business Affairs Committee.” The agenda shows that adidas “would pay Nebraska the aggregate sum" of $15.53M for exclusive sponsorship over the five years -- with $8.03M in cash and $7.5M in "athletic apparel and equipment products” (JOURNALSTAR.com, 3/8).
OFF THE WALL: SI.com's Ben Golliver noted Wizards G John Wall last week "debuted Adidas’s new patriotic red, white and blue" CrazyQuick basketball shoes. The shoes' aesthetics are "slick and well-coordinated; there’s a lot going on visually, but the shoe doesn’t produce an overwhelming or off-putting effect." They will be "available on May 1 and retail for $140" (SI.com, 3/8).
