DUCK TALES: In Portland, Allan Brettman reported a "delayed process" to select new Univ. of Oregon licensee apparel partners "has no target date for completion." UO Dir of Marketing & Brand Management Matt Dyste said that a committee is "considering about 20 applications to secure either a five- or 10-year partnership with the university to produce Oregon Ducks-branded T-shirts, hoodies and other apparel as well as headwear." He added that more proposals were submitted "than the university anticipated when it issued a request for proposal earlier this year." Among the "biggest changes was the requirement that prospective licensees guarantee the university at least $500,000 a year in royalties." The apparel deal under consideration is "separate from the exclusive off- and on-field apparel deal Nike has with the Ducks athletic department" (OREGONLIVE.com, 8/23).
