(Read) Data Crunch: College Basketball Underclassmen NBA Draft Declarations
"Schools can cancel the aid of a student-athlete as soon as he or she provides written notification of transfer, but the aid may not be reduced or canceled until the end of the term. Schools can re-award the scholarship at the end of the term, subject to other financial aid rules." That's from an NCAA release & a move from the 'Power 5' as the student-athlete transfer landscape continues to shift under our feet. Here's how SAAC chair & former UMKC MBB student-athlete Knight sees it, "In fairness to the transfer student-athlete’s teammates, coaching staff and overall team dynamic, the Division I SAAC felt that a student-athlete should not be able to give notification, search for other opportunities, then return to their institution if dissatisfied with their options with no repercussions." Also of particular note, the Collegiate Commissioners Association will review possible changes to the NLI in connection to HCs exiting before incoming student-athletes arrive on their respective campuses. (link)
The NCAA also released data surrounding graduate transfers, "From 2011 to 2017, the number of them tripled in women’s sports and increased by a factor of five in men’s sports. However, there were still only 660 graduate transfers identified in the 2017 Division I academic performance data out of nearly 110,000 Division I student-athletes, which equates to just over one-half of 1 percent." As shouldn't surprise any of us, MBB leads the way at 2.3% of current student-athletes being of the grad transfer variety, followed by WBB, FB & Men's/Women's Track & Field. (link); Here are the full study results, starting with a 5x increase since 2011 for Men's sports & a 3x for Women's. Lots of useful charts & graphs. Men's LAX, Men's Swimming & Diving, Women's Gymnastics & Women's Water Polo are yet to have a grad transfer for sports with at least 500 student-athletes in the 2017 APR cohort. (link)
KUSports.com's Tait writes on a number of potential AD candidates at Kansas who all have a connection to Oklahoma AD Castiglione. Tait mentions Colorado State AD Parker, Central Michigan's Alford, former Arkansas boss Long, Ole Miss AD Bjork, SMU's Hart & OU Senior Assoc. AD for External Operations Mossman, "the former Castiglione cronies all bring with them impressive resumes, quality experience and familiarity with both the Big 12 Conference and big time college football." Castiglione: "I’ve always placed a level of importance on mentorship as a key role of my leadership," points to "baptism by fire" in some cases, a "more progressive approach" in others. Without naming names, 'Joe C.' indicates those in his tree who may be involved in the KU process have been "very intentional about their own personal growth, always looking for ways to improve." A bit more. (link)
Sooners, continued: The Tulsa World's Emig thinks Castiglione "remains the most valuable member of the rebuilt trinity, which for so long included former Prez Boren & FB HC Stoops, but now counts new Prez Gallogly & FB boss Riley as members. Castiglione still thinks the blueprint in Norman is in good shape, believes one consistent theme is rewarding HCs who are headed in the right direction. (link); Even though athletics is self-sustaining in Norman, there are some questions around future spending flexibility as Gallogly has championed belt-tightening across campus. Castiglione: "In case you haven’t noticed, we’re all in this together. […] We need the university to be strong so we’re strong and, if we’re strong, hopefully that helps, to whatever degree we can, for the university to be strong." (link); HVS gets the assignment to crunch numbers on the potential impact of a new arena & entertainment district as another source for Norman city leaders to consider. City council vote set for August. (link); USA Today's Berkowitz does the math, Oklahoma FB HC Riley is getting a $1.5M raise, in addition to the previously scheduled $200K increase that went into effect Feb. 1, as the second-year Sooners leader will now make $4.8M in a new deal that runs through January of 2023. Increases for FB ACs include a $155K salary for new Director of Ops Stroud. Castiglione says there's no talk right now about alcohol at athletics events. Lots more money details here for Olympic sport HCs & others. (link, link)
Former Towson AD & multi-stop Senior Assoc. AD Waddell pitched his wares to Central Connecticut State constituents as the first of three finalists to take over the Blue Devils' portfolio. Waddell emphasizes his track record of working with tight budgets, "The one thing I can tell you is that I’m not a rookie coming in here for my first AD job looking to do that type of operation because I’ve been through that before." More: "We’re the only public school in the NEC, a sea of private [schools]. When you’re cutting 35½ scholarships like what is outlined right now by the Athletics Task Force, that is going to hurt, there is no doubt about that. It’s a long process but I think my proven success in navigating those waters and having done that before should give you a great confidence and we can repeat that again." (link)
Maryland will work with Walters, Inc., led by former South Carolina Asst. AD for Sports Medicine, to review protocols in connection to the passing of FB student-athlete McNair. University Chief Communications Officer Lawson: "The review will evaluate relevant policies and protocols, as the safety and well-being of our student-athletes is the highest priority. […] First and foremost the focus is on the well-being of our student-athletes, and this time is for them to grieve. We will continue to provide the resources our student-athletes need, which includes counseling services and access to spiritual leaders, during this difficult time." (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
Disney has agreed to buy Sky News, a key piece of the Fox family of assets on the block, with plans to pour an extra $130M into the British news outlet for the next 15 years. Overall that amounts to a $2B commitment over the 15, which would be in addition to the sales price. Regulatory hurdles still remain for Fox to take over Sky's equity. (link); We've all read the articles reviewing population movement to the south, which has played a role in densities of high-level prospective student-athletes & given this Wall Street Journal review of Nashville's growth, it seems clear the same situation may be going down in the Music City. Notably, Nashville's population has surged by ~50% in the last 30+ years, but now there's questions about affordability, sustainability, traffic & quality of life. (link)

Notable ESPN MBB analyst Vitale tweeted the following last weekend in connection to Kansas MBB HC Self coaching USA Basketball's U18 team, "I said it once and I will say it again. College head coaches SHOULD NOT be eligible to coach 18/u team. A big advantage in recruiting." However, the Sporting News' DeCourcy runs through a number of recruiting situations in the past couple of years that didn't go the way of the national team HC, plus DeCourcy believes top youth talent should be led by top coaches, no matter where a recruiting process stands. For his measure, Vitale thinks highly-successful DIII or high school HCs could play the same role without the conflict of interest. (link)
Former LSU FB HC Miles as an AD? [insert wide eyes or laughing or shocked or thinking man emojis]. Well, Miles was asked about the possibility during a radio interview, his response, "I think the thing the athletic director needs to say is, 'How can I help you?' As a coach, I would understand those things that would help them most. Recruiting, the consistency of teaching, the way to market your school, your academic strengths and how to recruit best. I would love to help a coaching fraternity and community to be the best." Miles in an AD chair would certainly spice up this beat even more. (link)
Arizona Senior Assoc. AD for Event Management & Facilities Mason gets profiled by UofA beat writer Hansen & praise comes from some key voices. Former Wildcats AD Byrne when the McKale Center was getting revamped, "Suzy’s in control. It is very comforting." Former Zona AD Livengood, who hired Mason in Tucson, "One of her assets is the ability to tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. That alone is an art form. [...] Her people skills and work ethic skills are over the top. I’ve been around a lot of great people during my career, but I’m not sure I’ve ever been around anyone better or more task-oriented than Suzy. Honestly, she could be the AD at any university in the country and they would immediately be better. The UA is so very lucky to have her." (link)
The suspension of Stephen F. Austin FB HC Conque is of the "indefinite" variety as the university announces DC Byrd will lead the program on an interim basis. Media reports indicate Lumberjack student-athletes have not been told why Conque has had to step away. Still no more context from the university beyond its initial statement. (link)
More Personnel: Auburn AD Greene selects Notre Dame Asst. AD/Exec. Dir. of the ND Monogram Club Ust as Assoc. AD of Administration on the Plains. (link); Colorado State AD Parker promotes Asst. AD for Communications Kirk and Asst. AD for Facilities/Stadium Manager Paquette to Assoc. ADs. (link); New Miami (FL) Baseball HC DiMare official introduced. (link); Washington AD Cohen nabs the husband-wife duo of Maurica and Andy Powell from Oregon's Track & Field program. Maurica will be the first Director of T&F/XC at UW, while Andy will be the HC of both T&F/XC. (link); In regards to the latest motion filed by Louisville in response to former MBB HC Pitino's lawsuit, ULAA attorneys: "There is nothing 'loyal' about a head coach who made millions of dollars and then turned around and sued his former school after he was found to have committed a Level I NCAA violation. And contrary to Pitino’s arguments, one cannot be 'smeared' with undisputed facts." (link); Campbell AD Roller goes with Ohio State AC McDonald to lead the Camels Softball program. (link); D1Baseball's Rogers reports that all signs point toward Middle Tennessee hiring College of Charleston Baseball AHC Toman as the next HC of the Blue Raiders. MTSU has a 5 pm presser planned for today to announce the next HC, whomever it may be. (link); Pac-12 Hotline's Wilner says the sales staff has been hit hard in the latest round of layoffs at Pac-12 Networks. (link); Utah Valley University signs MBB HC Pope to a six-year extension, taking him through the 2023-24 season. Base pay of $1.275M over the life of the contract, starting at $200K this year and increasing by $5K annually. Comes with several perks and monetary incentives ranging from $5K for a team GPA of 3.0+ or $500K for winning a national championship. (link); Colgate Men's Lacrosse HC Murphy resigns. (link); Toledo Prez Gaber gets a three-year extension, $51K raise and $90K bonus. New deal has a $510K salary and potential bonuses up to $153K. (link); The Southern Illinois Board of Trustees will meet again tomorrow "to try again to vote on suspending President Randy Dunn." (link)
The title is quite seductive, "If we build it, will they come? The effect of new athletic facilities on recruiting rankings for power five football and men's basketball programs" & it's from a quartet of Texas Tech & Niagara sports management professors for the Journal of Marketing for Higher Education. The article itself, which costs $42+ is also quite interesting, though is a bit of a slog through the academic prose. There's so much more than just this, but here's a key takeaway, "Using LSDV fixed effects regression models, results found a lack of significant improvement within football and basketball recruiting rankings following the completion of new athletic facilities, but some significance in the two years before the project was completed. Significant control variables also highlighted the effects that coaching changes can have on recruiting." Overall, worth your investment given the importance of the topic. (link)
Keep Building: More indoor spaces coming for the Hurricanes as Miami (FL) announces plans to build an indoor baseball facility. Funding is already in place, per Canes AD James, but details of the new space are not yet ready to be revealed. (link); Tennessee's renovations (new flooring and equipment) to the LaPorte Strength & Conditioning Facility at the Anderson Training Center cost almost $660K. (link); New Balance is the sponsor for the recently opened Auerbach Center, the new practice facility for the Boston Celtics. Interesting to look at what some pro organizations are doing on the facilities front. (link)
The Mountain West inks the Air Force Reserve as title sponsor of the league's 2019 MBB & WBB Tourneys. The Air Force Reserve will also be the presenting sponsor of 10 other post-season events across the conference & have a presence at the MWC FB title game. Learfield's Mountain West Sports Properties will oversee the relationship. No deal figures reported. (link)
Media Moves: Here's an interesting note from Deadline on TV ad spending that overall is expected to increase by 6% this year, "In contrast to primetime entertainment, sports may have seen such an increase in supply that pricing is less robust, notably for the NFL." (link); Thanks to the World Cup & U.S. Open, FS1 reached over 30M viewers last week marking the first time ever the network "had the greatest reach of any sports network for a full week." (link); Who might buy the Fox RSNs if Disney or Comcast has to divest of the 22 sports outlets? Awful Announcing reviews the possibilities of CBS, Discovery, Turner or one of the tech giants. If we get to that point, there will be no shortage of suitors. (link)
Disney's theme parks - a surging unit for the company - are about to ramp up variable & dynamic pricing for park admission, starting with a $299 entry fee for six hours of first exposure to Pixar Pier at Disneyland in Cali this Friday. Per the WSJ article, "Internal projections at Disney show that even after raising prices at roughly double the rate of inflation over the past five years, it could charge much more than it currently does without driving away too many customers." More dynamic pricing applications are also coming as Disney Parks Western Region Prez Powell frames it as, "We’re pursuing a number of strategies, including pricing and increased capacity, to better spread demand throughout the year so that we can fulfill our mission of exceeding guest expectations every day." (link)
Also Noticed: Northern Iowa AD Harris the latest in the state to chime in on the cancellation of the Hy-Vee Classic after this season. Harris: "I understand that Gary and Jamie have to do what’s in the best interest of their programs, but we feel like there are a lot of fans in the state that really enjoyed those games. I know our student-athletes really enjoyed competing against Iowa and Iowa State." (link); Arizona Stadium is getting $25M in renovations, which, coupled with a drop in season ticket prices, are intended to get more butts in seats. Assoc. AD for Marketing Chulick on the additional concession options: "We're trying everything that you could think of in a waffle cone." (link); Tailgate Guys picks up a fifth NFL partnership, this one with the Jacksonville Jaguars. (link); Check out the trailer for the next season of Last Chance U, which debuts July 20. This year's team is the Independence (Kansas) Community College. (link); Facebook will now put autoplay video ads inside Messenger. (link); Here's what your spirit staff is talking about: Bain Capital Private Equity set to acquire Varsity Brands, the "market leader in team sports, school spirit and achievement recognition." Varsity consists of three businesses, BSN Sports, Varsity Spirit and Herff Jones. $2.5B is the rumored price tag. (link)
Workparent Founder/CEO Wademan Dowling pens for HBR: "How Working Parents Can Manage the Demands of School-Age Kids." Here are some suggestions on how to wear multiple hats: 1) Explain the why, not just the when, of time away from work; 2) Plan and bundle volunteer commitments; 3) Invest your time where it matters most; 4) Make "family study hall" a habit; 5) Treat teachers and administrators as you would valued colleagues (because that's what they are); and 6) Remember what you're managing toward. Conclusion: "Parenting school-age children while making it happen in a full-time career can feel like an uphill marathon of a task — long, constant, and steep. But remember: School won’t be the only place your child gets their education. Like all parents, you will teach your child the greatest lessons: the importance of hard work, the value of commitments to family, and the satisfaction that comes from a tough job well done." How are everyone's summer camps going?!? (link)
