DO YOU MAKE WHAT THEY MAKE? IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME, AT UNC

          UNC officials released financial terms of personal-     services contracts between Nike and six of the school's     coaches on Thursday, and Steve Elling of the Raleigh NEWS &     OBSERVER writes "the figures are impressive."  UNC stands to     earn $11.1M over its five-year deal with Nike.  Men's     basketball coach Bill Guthridge and new football coach Carl     Torbush have not begun negotiations with Nike yet, but     women's soccer coach Anson Dorrance will earn $80,000 from     Nike in '98, after Dorrance's $22,000-per year deal with     adidas ends at the end of the year (NEWS & OBSERVER, 12/19).
