Kansas has announced that it will not retain FB HC Beaty once this season is complete. Jayhawks AD Long yesterday noted that "new leadership is necessary for our football team to move forward," adding: "I know Coach Beaty cares deeply about his players, and I respect that. The student-athletes on this team have continued to play hard -- and I am confident they will do that for the rest of the season." In the event of termination without cause, Beaty's contract calls for him to be paid $3M, and Long says KU will fulfill the terms of the deal. (link); In the short time since the announcement, Long says a number of candidates have "aggressively sought to make sure I knew that they were interested," some of whom he had in mind before he even made the announcement. Still, he says, there's no clear frontrunner at the moment. "I'm going to be looking for a leader of young men, someone who has maybe a history and track record of building a program, because we have to build a program and it’s really important to do that.” KU will not utilize a search firm to assist in the process. Instead, Long will rely on "advisors" as he navigates through the candidates. Regarding a timetable, Long says it will be important to act "shortly after the season, if not before." (link)
Knoxville News Sentinel columnist Adams weighs in on the job performance of Tennessee AD Fulmer after nearly a year on the job, noting that Fulmer is more accessible than his two predecessors as well as more deliberate. As support for the latter, Adams cites Fulmer's position on massive renovations to Neyland Stadium, which Adams quips could begin "any year now." But Fulmer so far has not been reactionary, asking "what's going to be the best for the next 100 years" while also emphasizing the need to be "prudent and responsible." Meanwhile, Fulmer last week pointed out that UT has already received $50M in donations toward the $340M renovation, and to critics who posited that "the people asking the questions seemed to know more about the renovation project than he did," Adams submits: "It's better to have someone who’s adept at getting things done, rather than someone who’s adept at talking about getting things done." (link)
The Athletic's Brown, as part of his weekly look inside the mind of an AP FB voter, examines the increasingly difficult mountain non-Power 5 teams must climb to gain respect among voters, observing: "Poll voters (historically) and selection committee members (the past few years) have spent a lot of time looking for reasons to vote for power conference teams and a lot of time looking for reasons to vote against Group of 5 teams." The playoff era, Brown goes on to note, has only put into starker contrast the difficulties mid-majors and Group of 5 teams encounter when trying to earn respect from pollsters. To illustrate, Brown points out the amount of turnover in the top 25 in recent weeks, using Penn State as an example. The Nittany Lions, Brown notes, "have more close wins (three), including Appalachian State, than close losses (two), and just lost to Michigan by five touchdowns" yet is still ranked 21st. Meanwhile, 'Group of 5' teams are not given similar room for slip-ups, including 8-1 Cincinnati which has wins over UCLA and a shutout of Navy with the Bearcats' only loss coming in overtime. UC is ranked 24th. Brown: "The Playoff era is training us to focus solely on the national championship race. As always, however, there are many more stories worth telling far beyond a four-team Playoff that excludes 97 percent of the FBS every year." (link)
Ever wonder what goes down inside a Parker Executive Search-led interview process for hiring a new WBB HC? Duke Assoc. HC Planells & Tennessee AC Reaves were put through the paces by Parker Associates Garrett & Higgison in mock interviews that give you an inside look. Some interesting questions asked, including, "Leadership is a broad idea, it's a broad topic...describe your leadership style in this day and age and the type of student-athletes you are going to be to me about your leadership style and how to attack the day." Another: "As you implement that vision, you're obviously going to need people around you to help execute. What's going to be your process of putting together your staff and what are some characteristics you're going to look for in your assistants?" Lots more. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
Adidas & Real Madrid have been locked together for 20 years & will continue for at least another 10 in a $1.25B deal. Yes, I think it's a "B" since it's $125M per year for 10 years. The annual number could get as high as $170M with incentives. As the article notes, "To put this in perspective, and compare it with Nike in the NBA, who kit out all the 21 teams for 1,000m ($1B) dollars over eight years. In other words 125m dollars, or 110m euros a season for 21 teams which is the same that Adidas will pay for just Real Madrid." Massive numbers. (link)

A study from the Boston University School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare System researchers, using data from the Concussion Legacy Foundation, showed that 147 college football programs had at least one former player diagnosed with CTE. Georgia had the most, with nine former players diagnosed, and all Power 5 schools were on the list. Twenty-six schools had at least three CTE cases: Georgia (9), Michigan State (8), Auburn (5), Iowa (5), Ohio State (5), Purdue (5),  South Carolina (5), USC (5), Wisconsin (5), Alabama (4), Arizona State (4), Arkansas (4), Boston College (4), Colorado State (4), Kansas State (4), Michigan (4). Notre Dame (4), San Diego State (4), Texas (4), UCLA (4), Washington (4), Cornell (3), Nebraska (3), North Carolina (3), Ole Miss (3) and Penn State (3). The complete list is included. (link)
Overshadowed by last week's personnel announcements at Maryland was the school's agreement to implement several recommendations proposed in the commissioned report, according to the Washington Post's Maese, who spoke with Baltimore attorney Scheeler, one of the leaders of the report. Scheeler says the report should help UMD strive to be the "gold standard" for student-athlete safety. "That would be the most appropriate way to honor Mr. McNair’s legacy. We think that Maryland should devote resources and very significant effort to this, and we believe it should be part of a larger national conversation about student-athlete health and safety." Regarding the discussion about a traditional health model or an independent model, whereby all medical decisions would be made by those outside the athletic department's purview, report commission member Azar notes that it's not possible to know whether such an independent model would've changed the outcome in the case of student-athlete McNair, but adds: "What this does, though, is it puts in place checks and balances and looks at the sole interest of student-athletes’ health and safety.” (link)
Here's the full feasibility study Collegiate Consulting completed for Dixie State (DII) in its quest to figure out if a move to DI is the best path forward. Ninety pages in total. As part of the Executive Summary, "From an NCAA perspective, Dixie State already meets the NCAA Division I FCS minimum of 14 sports, therefore it would not need to add any sports for eligibility purposes. However, for membership into the WAC, one of two things needs to happen: 1) football becomes a sport that is sponsored by the WAC; or 2) Dixie State would need to add a men’s sport to meet the WAC entry requirements." Tons more. (link)
USA Today's Wolken focuses on LSU during his Week 10 Misery Index, pointing out that FB HC Orgeron was perhaps a bit too quick to point out the lack of execution -- or, in some cases, talent -- as contributing factors to the Tigers' weekend loss to Alabama. During his postgame remarks, Orgeron observed that "I gotta recruit better defensive linemen. Gotta recruit better offensive lineman." And: "When you max protect you’re doing everything you can in protection and they’re beating you you have to look at personnel." Wolken wonders aloud how "that's going to play in an LSU locker room full of former four- and five-star recruits, many of whom will wind up in the NFL," especially considering LSU has more big games on the schedule. Minnesota, Western Kentucky, Miami (FL) and Texas A&M also making appearances on the index. Trending: Texas, USF, North Carolina, Florida State & Stanford. (link)
The State's Breiner takes a look at South Carolina's decision-making process in adding Akron to its schedule to make up for a previously scheduled contest against Marshall, which was canceled due to Hurricane Florence. The Gamecocks examined several possibilities, including some with schools who played at Hawaii and had availability for a 13th game. Gamecocks AD Tanner admits to not having "a lot of patience when it comes to things like this. I want to move forward as quickly as possible, and ideally I wanted to do it a month out so we had an opportunity to build that game." The contract with Akron was signed on Thursday after the Zips were eliminated from contention for the MAC title game, and the financial terms are reportedly similar to or exactly in line with the $1.4M USC would've paid to the Thundering Herd. Tanner also notes that the decision had little to do with money, as the SEC has insurance in place for such occurrences. "From a financial standpoint, there was no collateral damage for anyone. ... It wasn't a financial decision, it was an opponent decision." (link)
The fan engagement team at Texas Tech has been hard at work trying to get students fired up for basketball season, distributing 10K replicas of the MBB 2018 Elite Eight banners, 3K free t-shirts, free wings to the first 500 students to enter the exhibition game and attendees received early entry to the TTU-Oklahoma State FB game over the weekend. The student section area of the concourse will again offer fatheads, costumes and spirit items for supporters. Assoc. AD for Communications and Marketing Ingraham points to "engaging the crowd" as his main focus. (link)
Pretty neat conversation I don't think I've ever seen or heard before involving high-level hoops PA announcers on how they've honed their craft. Lead voices from Duke (Trip Durham), UCLA (Chuck White), Kentucky (Patrick Whitmer) & Villanova (Jim Bachman) cover how they prepare for a tip, the best method for making sure tough names are pronounced right, the importance of "being yourself," the thousands of reps it takes to improve, not getting to the venue too early, embarrassing mistakes & lots more. (link, link)
Also Noticed: Alabama-LSU (CBS) earned a 6.7 overnight rating, up 81% from last year and 12% from the 2016 edition of the rivalry. It was the highest CFB overnight of the season. Nebraska-Ohio State (FOX) did a 3.2, West Virginia-Texas (FOX) with a 3.0 & Georgia-Kentucky (CBS) recorded a 2.8. (link); The statement: "The U.S. Military Academy sincerely apologizes for an incident involving USMA cadets and the Air Force Academy falcons, which occurred Saturday. We are taking this situation very seriously, and this occurrence does not reflect the Army or USMA core values of dignity and respect. An apology was given to the U.S. Air Force Academy for this unfortunate incident." Aurora, the injured gyrfalcon, is now expected to make a full recovery. (link); A business I never knew existed: Rivalry Trophy LLC produces licensed hard plastic resin replicas of the Big Ten's famous FB rivalry trophies. Sales reached $350K last year and Michigan and Michigan State FB student-athletes were among the recipients as both HCs thought the replicas make nice gifts for players and staff. (link); INFLCR adds the Texas Legends as the company's first NBA G League client. (link)
