Transfers: The DI Transfer Working Group continues to press forward as chair & South Dakota State AD Sell says in an NCAA release, "We have strong support from the membership for allowing student-athletes to transfer and be recruited without losing their scholarships. We will ask the Division I Council to move forward with a vote on that proposal in June. This is meaningful change that will benefit student-athletes, schools and coaches." Feedback on potential options has been varied as the group will pause next week to consider the outcomes of the Rice Commission. Still getting strong support: Allowing student-athletes who have signed an NLI, but see their respective HC leave the ability to transfer & play immediately, as well as the creation of a national transfer database, though there's been a push for only two days between a student-athlete notifying their current institution & getting entered into the database. On the graduate front, some like the idea of a scholarship counting against a program for the completion length of the individual's graduate program. More. (link); The DI Committee on Academics stands behind its recommendations passed along to the DI Transfer Working Group, including the opportunity for student-athletes to transfer once without penalty if they hold a GPA above an established threshold. (link)
MBB-FBI: ACC Commish Swofford says he expects "substantive" change from the Rice Commission's decisions due out next week. SEC peer Sankey wants an "impactful outcome." More Swofford as he expresses aggravation at having two schools involved. More Sankey: "I think the attention's been raised and the attention will be raised again when that report is released. And then there will probably be a lot of new work in determining how we meet whatever new expectations may exist." (link); N.C. State releases a thorough timeline of how it handled various claims connected to the current developments. Surprised we haven't seen more schools roll out this type of defense publicly. (link); Yahoo's Wetzel writes on what he sees as the biggest issue facing the Rice Commission, "College basketball is its own multibillion-dollar business. It has its own motivations. Age rule or no age rule, tickets will be sold, television deals inked and coaches expected to win. The game was no less competitive or cutthroat before the age-limit rule when the best high schoolers went directly to the NBA. Just because LeBron wasn’t available, revenue, salaries and competition went up. Rice has to know that there are no rules or regulations that can stop the wheels of capitalism. The free market will win in America, even if it must go underground." (link); NABC Executive Director Haney: "What can the Association do to encourage ethical behavior by our coaches more effectively than we are now? Clearly, what we have done to date is not enough. Should we hold an orientation for first-time head coaches? Should all first-time assistant coaches have an orientation? Can we require attendance in some way? Similar to accountants and other professionals, should college coaches be required to attend a specific number of ethics training clinics annually? Secondly, what punitive action should the NABC take for coaches who have been arrested, indicted or named in an NCAA investigation? Is a public reprimand appropriate? Should the coach's membership be suspended? Are there other considerations?" (link)
LEAD1 boss McMillen says he told attendees at the Collegiate Sports Summit in Santa Monica about the "blue sky possibilities" at Maryland, like being the only FBS in the D.C. market, as the Terps sort through selecting a new AD. McMillen spent some time with UMD Executive AD Evans, who has run the department for the last six-plus months, as well as former Tennessee/Kansas State AD Currie. McMillen on Evans, "The advantage he has is that he know the players [those with power in College Park] and the situation. And he’s got a financial bent. That’s big." More perspective, this from a "longtime West Coast AD," "It’s an outstanding academic institution with plenty of athletic tradition in a very fertile recruiting area, and the virtue of being in the Big Ten, they’ve got the TV money and resources to be able to compete at the highest level. Maryland will have a very, very deep pool." However, "There’s a lot of people in the industry that think Damon is a strong candidate. People who have good jobs don’t want to get into a search where they think it’s already a fait accompli." Former Arkansas AD Long, Hofstra leader Hathaway, UCF AD White & USF boss Harlan also mentioned as possibilities. One drawback for a sitting 'Power 5' AD could be how university Prez Loh handled the exit of former AD Anderson, "something like that could make someone take a much deeper look [before getting involved]." (link); WaPo's Stubbs & Dougherty dive in on what the Terps really need in a new leader & the quick feedback from key voices is someone who can raise some serious cash. Then there's this from one anonymous "high-level" donor, "The athletic department is a mess. There’s not a culture of excellence. They need to bring in a sophisticated leader who can bring this place to the next level. There has been a leadership void there forever." Oklahoma's Castiglione mentioned as a desired target by some key supporters, but there's also questions about how much the Terps are willing to pay as Anderson made $578K in 2017, "among the lowest for Big Ten ADs." (link)
The Deseret News' Facer asks the questions we've all been wondering, "Could Utah deputy athletic director Kyle Brennan be heir apparent to Chris Hill?" Facer notes the university plan to execute a national search with a new boss to be selected by June, but Hill himself isn't shy about pushing his star pupil, "Although I want to be respectful to the process, I think it’s also important for people to know that I think he would do an excellent job as the athletic director." Utes FB HC Whittingham is also a major fan, "He’s a guy that’s very familiar with everything that goes on here. I would be elated if it’s Kyle Brennan, you bet." Count MBB boss Krystkowiak & Women's Gymnastics Co-HC Marsden as two more endorsements. (link)
Washington Prez Cauce says Huskies AD Cohen is due a pay increase: "There is no question (a raise is due), if you look at her salary compared to her peers. She came in somewhat less tested, and that made sense. But I think it’s unquestionably time to look at a correction. ... When she was hired there were questions about how tested she was, and could she do the hard stuff — quite frankly, questions that I think tend to be asked more about women than men. And I think that she’s really shown that she surrounds herself with great people. She’s built a really strong team. It’s obvious with the level of coaches but also it’s there in the business office she’s put together. I’ve just been very impressed." Cohen's five-year deal began on June 1, 2016 with an annual base of $460K, plus a $60K retention bonus each year at the end of May. Sources indicate Cohen's new deal could be closer to $700K annually, 35% better than her current salary, but still below the $755K median pay of Pac-12 ADs. (link)
Utah Valley AD Otoupal was the first up on campus in Eastern Washington's AD search. Otoupal: "This place is on the precipice of greatness. Let’s not start something big, let’s continue something big." Otoupal also pointed to his record of fundraising success in Orem, but says the right ingredients include "we have to make sure that we have the right team in front of the donor making the ask." Also, "We are going to do some crazy things. Half of them aren’t going to work, but half of them are going to work." EWU Interim boss & former UTSA AD Hickey up on Thursday. (link)
The New Mexico Board of Regents voted 6-1 in favor of a proposed athletics department budget that includes a "reduction in sports" in the future. Former Lobo FB student-athlete and current student regent Adcock was the lone objector. Lobos AD Nunez hasn't completely closed the door on the possibility of a $1.9M reduction without eliminating sports: "As a former student athlete myself, believe me, I’m going to do everything I can to see if we can do this without cutting a sport." New Prez Stokes doesn't share his optimism: "I can’t imagine a scenario where we wouldn’t have to cut sports. I just can’t at this point. We don’t have other revenue sources to fill that kind of recurring deficit. … It’s a really unfortunate place to be." The department must get to the $1.9M from sports reductions and find an additional $550K in savings annually. Nunez has until July 1 to decide which sports could be cut. More details on the plan approved by the BoR, which includes a 10-year repayment of the $4.7M accumulated deficit ($487K annually) that won't start for another two years. Athletics will get $885K from land sales, $641K from unspecified institutional support, $750K from "grant-aid subsidies" and $250K in "room and board discounts" from the university during FY19. (link)
Variety's Wallenstein & Holloway report ESPN & Fox will split the UFC's premier TV rights with the Worldwide Leader paying $120M to $180M a year that could push 15 fights to the new ESPN+ & Fox doling out $200M annually for more bouts on both terrestrial & FS1 outlets. If the numbers are right, they fit into the $300M to $400M Endeavor has been trying to get for its prize property. Of course, if the Disney-Fox deal clears, the Mouse House would single-handedly own a majority of the rights under discussion. (link); Another key media read comes from Ad Age's Poggi on TV programming having less commercial load to keep viewers engaged, but the challenge of still producing increasing ad revenue. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
SBJ/SBD's CAA World Congress of Sports got moving in L.A. & there was a bevy of interesting content on Day 1: Pac-12 Commish Scott says he welcomes more disruption in the media space. thinks college sports will benefit as new & growing players "come to us." (link); ESPN EVP Magnus indicates new Worldwide Leader boss Pitaro allows the company to "reset" on the NFL, which notable author & company expert Miller thinks means ESPN will renew a deal with the top FB property. (link); USC AD Swann has his own time slot, explained his thoughts on why additional compensation for student-athletes won't work. (link); Lots more. (link)

USA Today's Berkowitz keeping close tabs on when the NCAA may be back in the courtroom: "Alston/Jenkins plaintiffs make filing opposing NCAA’s request for lengthy delay to start of trial now set to begin in December. Alston/Jenkins plaintiffs say that if trial date is changed from December, it should to be moved to an earlier date." (link)
The push by California Assemblyman Holden to enact the 'College Athletes Civil Rights Act of 2018' got approved by the Committee on Higher Education yesterday, next up would look to be a second reading in the House. As a refresher, "The recently amended version of Assembly Bill 2747 allows college athletes to receive earnings through a degree completion fund, and creates safeguards for college athletes from abuses by college coaches, trainers, and other athletic staff. [...] Holden’s legislation would allow a higher education institution to create a degree completion fund whereby college athletes could receive income while competing and retain their amateur status. The athletes would be able to access the fund upon graduation or when they no longer are eligible to participate in college sports in order to fund their education." (link)
Delaware AD Rawak hires UCLA Assoc. AD for Compliance & Recruiting Vining-Smith as her new Senior Assoc. AD for Compliance & Governance/SWA. Rawak on Vining-Smith, "She is seasoned in evaluating, coordinating and effectively managing robust compliance programs at both the university and conference level and will support us in the build out of these processes and strategies here at Delaware." Vining-Smith also spent time at Notre Dame, the Big Ten office & Northwestern. (link)
"I have a tremendous amount of respect for Hugh Freeze as a coach. I think he did a fabulous job when he was at Ole Miss. He has been a friend that I've shared ideas with and spent time with and know his family, as Miss Terry does know his family. So we have a tremendous amount of respect for him. We also have a lot of respect for the SEC and what they think is, in some cases, best for the league relative to circumstances that people created for themselves. [...] I think he'll be back in our profession, and we wish him and his family the very best, and if we can do anything to help him, we'll be happy to do that." That's Alabama FB HC Saban when asked about reports that the SEC office pushed for member institutions not to add Freeze to their staffs. (link)
More changes at Nike as Senior Brand Director for Nike Basketball in North America Singh, VP of Global Brand Digital-Marketing Innovation Tawiah & VP of Diversity & Inclusion Andrews have all exited the company. The Wall Street Journal's Germano: "It wasn’t immediately clear what led to their exits from the sportswear giant, but their departures were abrupt, the people said. […] The three men didn’t respond to requests for comment. A Nike spokesman confirmed the three executives were no longer employees." (link)

Iowa State AD Pollard goes deeper on the expanded Bergstrom Football Complex project and a new student-athlete academic and sports nutrition performance center, "It consolidates everything for football so that the football team, other than sleeping at night and going to class, will never have to leave the football building.” More: "It will always be a race to continue to have the biggest, best and brightest. What we’ve really prided ourselves in is having the most efficient and I’ve spent a lot of time over the winter visiting other places just to see how they do it. We’re excited where we’re at, now we have to continue to get our donors excited about it." (link)
Northern Arizona inked a new five-year deal with adidas that will run through the 2022-23 competition seasons. No dollar values noted, but here are the deliverables, "...uniforms, apparel, footwear and accessories for all of their intercollegiate athletic teams. In addition to all 15 intercollegiate athletic Lumberjack teams, adidas will also provide apparel and accessories for coaches and athletic staff." NAU AD Marlow: “This important relationship ensures each of our student-athletes and coaches will continue to have access to state-of-the-art training products and competition attire in their pursuit of excellence. We appreciate the increased commitment from adidas and expect it to pay dividends in the form of additional championships!" (link)
In an effort to boost attendance, Louisville passed a dynamic ticket pricing proposal for MBB that will offer tickets to exhibition and regular season games for $49, non-conference games for $39, and three premium games for $60. Cards Asst. AD for Finance Spoelker: “We’re trying to boost attendance for games that are not as well attended." New permanent AD Tyra added that student ticket prices will remain flat and students will now be able to purchase hoops and FB season tickets separately. As a side note, maybe I'm the one who has the strategies mixed up, but isn't this really variable pricing? (link)

The Chronicle of Higher Education interviewed Crystal deGregory, a historian and director of the Atwood Institute at Kentucky State (DII), to get her thoughts on the public perceptions of historically black colleges after Beyonce’s headlining performance at the Coachella music festival last weekend in which the singer wore a yellow hoodie that featured Greek letters with references to black colleges. deGregory: "This presents an opportunity to talk about the ways we’ve been undervaluing our own HBCU culture. Beyoncé has shined a light on our cultural uniqueness, and she has demonstrated that popular culture has an appetite for it. Unless HBCUs are in a better position to feed that appetite, we are going to be left hungry, either at the table or not at the table at all. Someone else is going to be serving up our culture." (link)
Also Noticed: NBA G League base salaries will increase from $26K or $19K to $35K next season for five months of play.

Correction: Incoming Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Chair Knight, a former MBB student-athlete at UMKC is currently a student assistant for the Roos, not a student trainer as noted in a clip yesterday. 
Sports Illustrated's Feldman spent some time with new Nebraska FB HC Frost & here were some key leadership takeaways, "There’s a formula that worked at Nebraska for 30 years. If you were in any business and your company was the best-performing business in the sector or in the top two or three—and Nebraska was arguably the best program for 30 years—and then for the next 15 years you have average-to-poor performance, you’re stupid if you don’t look back and say, ‘What made our company the best in our sector?’ Well, the leadership on campus and in the AD office ruined this place because it was either guys who thought, I wanna do it my way, let’s go get a West Coast offense guy, or they didn’t understand what made Nebraska so good for all of those years. [...] Barry Alvarez came from here and saw what worked, and he used Nebraska’s blueprint more than Nebraska has. We should be able to out-recruit Wisconsin. We’re not anywhere near huge talent bases, but we’re closer to it than they are. People say Lincoln’s cold. Wisconsin is cold. Michigan is cold. Minnesota is cold. We should be the highest-rated recruiting class at least in our half [of the Big Ten] every year with the facilities we have to offer and with the tradition we have here. We don’t need the No. 1 recruiting class in the country. We just need a top-25 class every year, and we can develop it." Lots more. (link)
