North Carolina Representative Walker, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the largest Republican caucus in the House, calls for student-athletes to have rights to leverage their name, image & likeness, "Signing a scholarship with a university should not be a moratorium on an athlete's ability to use his or her name and image, or to attain a livable wage for their talent. Instead of a model that devalues hard work and strips athletes of the rights to their own name, we need a system that encourages the dignity of work and upholds the value of personal initiative and freedom — foundations of the American idea. [...] The NCAA has been given time to assuage these concerns, but has ultimately fallen short. While the organization and their affiliated college athletic departments are in large part staffed with honorable people who work hard to serve young players and uphold integrity, it’s time we examined whether or not more motivation is needed to improve the system for players, administrators, and fans alike." Walker says he's been in conversation with peers on how to fix the issue & will continue a "national discussion on solutions" to see if Congress should get involved. More. (link - Walker op ed, link - News & Observer follow-up)
Michigan FB HC Harbaugh points to the revenue stream of Amazon paying the Wolverines a rights fee to film & stream an All Access series as a potential avenue to provide student-athletes with additional compensation. Harbaugh: "We're exploring that right now. Can we get $1,000 of stock in Amazon possibly for deferred compensation? We're just kind of wondering if it's possible. We don't know if it is yet. We're just asking the question." Further, Harbaugh says he does not believe a pure salary for student-athletes is the way to go due to tax implications of both the added pay & the value of a scholarship. (link)
Still relatively-new Virginia AD Williams chats up local media, points to upgrades around Cavs FB as a key focus point early in her tenure, "It didn’t take very long for me to start to realize that we’ve got a structural problem in football. We are understaffed in some areas. Obviously we’ve got some facility issues in some areas. Our budget is not where it needs to be. All of those things need to change to have a consistently competitive football program." A push for a short-term emergency fund for FB, targeted to raise $500K, generated $1M. A replacement of University Hall, which houses 10 sports, "can't come soon enough, per Williams, plus, "The optics matter. … I think it’s critical that we invest in football, that we support football so that we can start to see some return on those investments for the sake of the entire department." (link)
Oklahoma boss Castiglione was awarded with an extended deal after 20 years of leading the Sooners & indicates he has no plans of slowing down, "I intend to keep working, to make a positive impact and contribution both in our athletics program, to be a great partner, collaborator on President Designate Gallogly’s team, and to work with faculty and staff, the deans, to again, strengthen our whole university, at least to the extent where athletics can play a positive role." Solid perspective from Castiglione later in this Tulsa World entry, "I always tell people, if you want to complain about your job, you can take the complaint and go down the road, because if not for the student-athletes, we don’t have a job. That’s why we’re here, to serve them." (link)
ECU Acting COO Workman says Special Advisor to the Chancellor Hart is "looking at everything. That’s so he can advise the chancellor on, 'Here’s what I see and here’s what looks really good and here’s what I see that we can work on.' He’s going to give him a really good view of our athletic program and what he sees that we need to do and look at moving forward to help the chancellor in his role as the leader of the university." Interestingly, Workman was an intern for Hart back in the day when Hart was an Asst. AD for the Pirates, so the two certainly didn't have to get to know each other when Hart arrived back in Greenville. When might we know more from Chancellor Staton on a full-time AD for the Pirates? Workman: "I’m sure at the appropriate time and when the chancellor has a feel for it, he’ll communicate internally and I would think he would communicate externally." (link)
20 headsets is the new maximum for FB programs to use during games, 15 for coaches/staff, four for student-athletes & one for someone with non-coaching duties, like charting plays. Also of note on the new rule from the FB Oversight Committee, "Additionally, one communication technician in the team area and one communication technician in the coaches’ booth may listen to the coaching headsets to monitor and handle any technical issues. Those technicians would not count against the allowable 20 devices." (link)
"Coaches in the past have brought those guys in and put them in an analyst role, and they learned some things about it there, and now those guys can’t even do that. They can’t get that part of the growth to help them. … I think it hurts those guys personally. It’s already tough getting from high school to college. This made it a lot tougher." That's Florida State FB HC Taggart on a consequence of the Individuals Associated with a Prospect (IWAP) rule that's a year old. Big 12 Commish Bowlsby believes the constraint is "working as intended." Colorado HC MacIntyre believes the rule has ensnared some up & coming coaches who aren't connected to the 7-on-7 & prep world who were the original target. More Bowlsby, "We knew there would be circumstances where we’d have to give institutions some relief. But generally speaking, the combination of the camp and clinic changes and the IAWP have had a significant impact on the proliferation of staffs and how people go about getting hired on a staff." More. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
NBC Sports' Young writes on the transition of international MBB student-athletes from one coaching staff to another, which is currently going down at Marist as six Red Foxes were recruited by former HC Maker & are now getting up to speed with new HC Dunne, the former boss at Saint Peter's. Dunne isn't shy to say his recruiting philosophy doesn't include an international push, but Marist AD Murray emphasizes, "I think communication is a really key component to successful coaching. My paradigm is recruiting, communicating and coaching, in that order and in that priority." (link)

SI legal expert McCann dives in on the Skechers lawsuit against Adidas connected to the MBB-FBI saga. McCann explores all sorts of angles, but interestingly says Nebraska dropped its Adidas deal for one with Skechers, which clearly isn't the case (the article McCann links is obviously a spoof). Anyhow, here's the meat, "Adidas will assert that Skechers is simply not a credible rival to Adidas in the basketball sponsorship and endorsement industry. Stated differently, Adidas will reason that if consumers didn’t buy from Adidas, they probably wouldn’t buy from Skechers either. Perhaps they would purchase footwear made by the industry leader, Nike. Regardless, Adidas will argue that Sketchers wouldn’t become the beneficiary of its lost sales." (link)
Former Tennessee AD Currie may no longer be in charge in Knoxville, but the Times Free Press's Cobb notes the HC hires Currie made during his tenure are doing a solid job. Men's Tennis HC Woodruff took a program that was 3-21 versus the SEC in the two seasons before he took over to an 8-4 league mark & an NCAA Tourney berth. Baseball HC Vitello has his Vols at 27-24 (10-15), which is currently good enough to make the SEC Tourney & has secured what Perfect Game ranks as the 6th best recruiting class in the nation at the moment. (link)
The McNair trial saw closing arguments yesterday & former USC FB AC McNair's attorney delivered this to jurors, "If this is what goes on at the NCAA all the time your verdict needs to clean this up because people's occupations are at stake and university programs are at stake and the kids who play in those programs are at stake and our integrity as a people is at stake." Per ESPN's Bonagura, "McNair is seeking roughly $20-27 million in actual damages, without factoring in potential punitive damages." (link)
USA Today's Berkowitz & The Athletic's Emerson dig in on the new contract terms for Georgia FB HC Smart. Berkowitz: "If Smart is fired w/o cause, he would get 65% of the remaining basic compensation, with no provision for offset from future income. (New contract terms increased buyout amount and *removed* language that had provided for offset if Smart took a job with another SEC school.)" Smart's annual basic pay starts at $6.6M & increases by $100K annually to $6.8M in 2020 and by $200K annually to $7.4M in 2024. Smart would owe UGA $6M if he were to exit in the next two years, $4M in 2020, then $1M less per year until the end of the deal. (link, link)
Lamar has officially parted ways with Softball HC Bruder, who had been on administrative leave. No specific reason was given for Bruder's exit, but you've likely seen the news reports of Bruder's handling of a student-athlete's religious beliefs during Lent. Four Cardinals student-athletes have publicly stated the situation did not play out like initially reported, but AD Born indicates a national search will be conducted immediately. (link)
More Personnel: CBSSports.com's Dodd catches up with new UCLA FB HC Kelly, "I'm not going to walk down Wilshire. I'm going go to work at 5:30 in the morning. I've heard [those assumptions]. That wasn't a factor in me making the decision." Dodd also says season ticket renewals are over 90% & new tix sales are up 6x for the Bruins. More. (link, link); Rutgers AD Hobbs hires Temple Gymnastics HC Salim-Beasley to return to the RU program & lead the Scarlet Knights. (link); Dayton WBB HC Green extended to 2024. (link); San Antonio Spurs standout Gasol writes on female ACs as Spurs AC Hammon in reportedly in the mix to become the HC with the Milwaukee Bucks. Gasol: "So when I see arguments — or even jokes — that we shouldn’t have female head coaches in the NBA because of “locker room” situations or whatever … I guess it just reminds me that, for as much progress as we’ve made as a league over these last few years … we still have a ways to go. Because let’s be real: There are pushes now for increased gender diversity in the workplace of pretty much every industry in the world. It’s what’s expected. More importantly — it’s what’s right. And yet the NBA should get a pass because some fans are willing to take it easy on us … because we’re “sports”? I really hope not." Lots more. (link); ESPN hoops analyst Lawson: "I'd be very interested to know of the interviewing process for assistant coaches for @NBA teams.  If the "pipeline" for head coaching opportunities goes thru being an assistant, why aren't more teams providing opportunities to qualified female candidates?" (link)
During FY17, UCF reached record cash gift revenue ($10.7M) and record total financial commitments ($17.3M), allowing several construction projects to move forward. Knights AD White on the fundraising success, "We think we can build a perennial top 25 athletic department here and obviously our donors see it too. ... I’m just really proud that they believe in the vision that we all have; from our student-athletes when they decide to come here, to our coaches and our whole university community." So far in FY18, those same stats are $10.9M and $16M, respectively, and White expects both of last year's records to fall. White: "We have a lot of really exciting conversations going on with alumni who are starting to make it big and … what’s cool about UCF, in a lot of ways, our best days are ahead of us. From a fundraising standpoint, the best days are definitely ahead of us." So far $16.2M is committed to the $30M athletic village. (link)
Missouri AD Sterk lays it out there in regards to the upcoming football season: "I don’t see anybody on the schedule that we can’t compete with, or that we can’t score with. It’ll be fun to see the SEC touchdown leader return and have a lot of his linemen up front return." More from Sterk in this Q&A with the Kansas City Star, including his thoughts on FB HC Odom's confidence: "I think he’s excited about the upcoming season. I think that’s probably a good indicator of how things sit. They’re probably further along because of some of those changes he made in the program last season." (link)
Saint Peter's will drop Women's Bowling and Men's and Women's Tennis, effective July 1. AD Felt: "This was an extremely tough decision. These are all tremendous young men and women and I know how difficult this is for our impacted student-athletes. We are in the midst of strategically restructuring our athletic department in an effort to ensure athletic competitiveness for Saint Peter's in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference as well as maximize our limited financial resources. The reality is that our current path was simply not sustainable to continue to support the current number of sports." Prez Cornacchia calls it a "necessary course of action." (link)
Since West Virginia joined the Big 12 in 2013, five other schools in the league have hopped on the beer sale wagon with the Mountaineers. WVU AD Lyons: "Somebody had to be the first to go out. People wanted to make sure the model was going to work and you didn’t have additional problems. I think others were looking at their peer groups. I can’t speak for the others, but what I have at least heard is, using Texas as an example, theirs is doing extremely well. ... It’s a matter of getting your fans to games, enjoying it and having some of the amenities you can have at home. Is revenue a part of it? Yeah, it is. But at the same time, it’s fan enhancement to having an enjoyable experience at your stadium and venues you sell at." Texas generated more than $3M in alcohol sales in 2017, compared to WVU's $600K. An SBJ study last year reported 36 schools sell beer at FB games on campus and another 14 do so off-campus. Baylor, Iowa State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma are the remaining Big 12 schools that do not sell alcohol at public venues. (link)
Pretty interesting piece to show your FB student-athletes from ESPN's Raanan, "The crazy underworld of NFL undrafted free agency." Raanan: "Each team received $103,856 this year to entice undrafted free agents with signing bonuses. They were free to use it as they please once the draft ended. That is when it got hectic. […] About 10 days to two weeks before the draft, teams really start working players. They call to ask what they’ve been doing and who they’re talking to. They want to determine which teams might be interested, where they can get the players, when they can get them and how much they can get them for. Information is power when it comes to the NFL draft." More. (link)
Also Noticed: Alabama FB is the latest to reportedly block a transferring student-athlete from attending a certain cohort of schools. Outgoing student-athlete Kennedy, who is expected to be the backup center for the Crimson Tide, cannot connect with other SEC programs right now.
