Ohio State: Courtney Smith says it's not true that an OSU lawyer asked her to drop charges from a 2015 arrest of her then-husband & former FB AC Zach Smith, "No way. I would have never said that." (link); Ohio State Trustee Wadsworth resigned after the multi-game suspension was handed down for FB HC Meyer, "Most people were concerned about whether it was a several-game suspension or not. To me, there was something altogether wrong about reducing it to a couple of games. […] You read the report and there’s seven or eight things about emails, memory loss, hearing things five times, and to me, that raised an issue of standards, values — not how many games someone should be suspended for." (link); At the other end of the spectrum is OSU BoT chair Gasser, who "took pride" in the investigation that was executed with a "deliberative nature." (link); Here's the full email OSU sent to Meyer about his suspension. (link); Texas FB HC Herman says his wife was fully aware of where he was when he visited a strip club with Smith back in 2014 & will fully cooperate with the NCAA if called upon. (link)
Michigan State won't face any NCAA sanctions stemming from the Nassar situation as word from Indy is "that it does not appear there is a need for further inquiry." Spartans AD Beekman: "We welcome closure in regards to the NCAA inquiry. MSU cooperated fully with the inquiry over the past several months and provided all requested documentation and access to key personnel." MBB HC Izzo: "As I said in February, when faced with disciplinary issues, I’ve handled those in accordance with all appropriate policies and procedures. After a very thorough review, the NCAA provides confirmation that our program has done that." FB's Dantonio: "I have never wavered in my belief that we have done things the right way here at Michigan State." (link)
For the fourth consecutive year, average announced FB attendance among the NCAA's most prominent conferences last year declined. The 3.2% dip brings the four-year total decline to 7.6%, but the Wall Street Journal points out that the problem goes deeper than that, as the average count of tickets scanned is just 71% of the announced attendance. The SEC and B1G announced by far the highest total attendances, with the SEC surpassing 5M and the B1G falling just short; however, their actual attendances both totaled just short of 4M, still surpassing any other league's announced totals by over 1M. Former IMG Learfield Tickets Solutions Prez Sine points out a perhaps even more troubling axiom, noting if fans don't use their tickets, "they're more likely not to come back." Meanwhile, the WSJ notes attendance is more than a "vanity issue," as NCAA FBS inclusion requires a rolling two-year average attendance of at least 15K. Lots here. (link)
Louisville: An excerpt from former MBB HC Pitino's coming book hits the New York Post in which he offers his side of the story as it relates to the program's problems and, ultimately, his parting of ways with the university. Following the NCAA's ruling in June 2017, which included, among other penalties, a five-game suspension for Pitino, the former UL coach describes a board of trustees meeting where he passed out booklets detailing the highlights of his coaching career, including testimonials from players. Pitino: "The board members looked at the booklet. 'This is self-serving,' one of them said in a voice dripping with contempt." Pitino then recalls former Papa John's CEO Schnatter joining the meeting via video link and voicing his displeasure at having a coach at a trustees meeting, saying: "What's next, the women's volleyball coach coming in there?" To which Pitino responds in the article: "That was a pretty sexist remark, but his entire attitude was disrespectful and nasty." As the column continues, Pitino moves on to suggest his dismissal adversely affected several of the players, citing their falling draft stock throughout the 2017-18 season. While he acknowledges it's impossible to determine whether his coaching them would've prevented that, he concludes: "It does not seem to be a huge stretch to say the board’s decision to fire me likely robbed some of these players of their professional careers." (link); Meanwhile, former Senior Assoc. AD for Development Jurich has sent out a tweet apologizing that his "message got lost" in his remarks concerning the relocation of his family's seats to FB & MBB games," adding: "To the UofL fans I offended, I am truly sorry. I’ll be at every home game with my boys -- we are excited to support the Cards!" (link); Louisville Prez Bendapudi has "total confidence" in AD Tyra. (link)
Freshly minted Kansas AD Long has penned a letter to Jayhawks fans for the first time since officially taking over. In it, he asserts that KU's "number one priority will be the well-being of our 460-plus student-athletes and their individual student-athlete experience." To that end, Long and his staff have begun identifying potential impediments that would preclude KU from providing that experience. Two areas Long has already identified are revenue generation and facility enhancement. "Over the next few months we will engage in deep conversations about growing our membership in the Williams Education Fund and establishing a clear vision for our capital improvements, including David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, Allen Fieldhouse and Hoglund Ballpark." Long goes on to call on fans to support the FB team as it opens the season tomorrow, writing: "For those who have purchased season tickets, thank you.  For those who haven't, please consider helping us break the cycle and join us this Saturday and all season long." (link)
With one year at the helm now complete. William & Mary AD Huge submits she has gotten a good sense of what the "dreams and aspirations are for Tribe" athletics from a variety of stakeholders, and says one of her department's near-term goals will be increasing student and fan participation. "In the immediate future, my hope is that we see an uptick in [participation] from our fans and our supporters. That our student-athletes really have the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of more people, whether that is in-person or through the media." Moving forward, Huge has already implemented a new approach to student-athlete success and development to ensure they receive the best attention in mental, physical and emotional health care. "We’ve hired a person who comprehensively is looking at sports performance from a standpoint of nutrition, strength and conditioning and sports medicine. … I would say that was one of the greatest things we have accomplished, was bringing a comprehensive approach to our student athletes." Huge also addresses her role as a female AD, saying she looks forward to a day when such a gender qualifier is superfluous. Still, she acknowledges why it may be an important distinction now. "It’s exciting for me, especially as I look at the women who came before me. ... There’s a sense of wanting to honor them and honor what they did to get us to this point, and, in so doing, prepare the way for the next generation of women who are coming after us." (link)
Southern Illinois reverses field on additions it made to the student-athlete handbook concerning displays of social activism. Statement from the Salukis, "Given the community feedback, it appears that we somewhat missed the mark. We will revisit the language and do not plan to use it as currently written. Instead, we will work with our student-athletes to turn the language into a positive values statement related to the focus and purpose of athletics. We are grateful to all of those who have reached out with constructive feedback. All input helps us to do our best." (link)
Missouri & Learfield ink a 10-year extension that will keep the pair together through June of 2029, a partnership stretching for 55 years. Of note, "Mizzou Sports Properties manages all components of the comprehensive rights agreement, including sponsorship sales, radio broadcasts and other marketing responsibilities. As part of the extended relationship, Learfield will be responsible for selling newly created sponsorship elements, including those within the Memorial Stadium South End Zone project." (link)
The Athletic's Deitsch empaneled several FB reporters around the country for a roundtable discussion on the biggest storylines heading into the season. Fox Sports' Feldman, Yahoo's Forde, The Athletic's Mandel, USA Today's Myerberg and Sports Illustrated's Staples each participated, and all but Staples identify "the Urban Meyer story" as one of the biggest narratives heading into the season. Mandel posits that the story will not fade away, even when Meyer returns in week 4. "It may get drowned out at times once the games start next week but it will continue to hover over the season, especially if Ohio State emerges as a playoff contender." Asked what their first question to Meyer would be if they were to have a one-on-one interview with him, Myerberg is the most succinct and direct: "Why should we -- media, the not-irrational section of the Ohio State fan base, your bosses, the student-athletes on your team -- believe in what you say?" Several panelists also identified the passing of Maryland student-athlete McNair and the circumstances surrounding it as a major issue, and on this topic, Forde is perhaps the most blunt, saying, in part: "Institutional negligence killed a young man, with a dangerous meathead culture as a potential contributing factor. I’ll be shocked if D.J. Durkin returns as head coach." Regarding the regular season's game of the year, only Staples identifies a matchup that doesn't include an SEC team, opting instead for Ohio State v. Penn State. "The last two Big Ten champs have recruited better than anyone else in the league, and this annual clash feels like Alabama-LSU felt six or seven years ago." (link)
CBS MBB writers Norlander and Parrish asked 100 HCs around the country who the best HC hires were during the offseason, and the results were pretty definitive, with Louisville HC Mack garnering 32% of the vote, followed closely by Connecticut HC Hurley, with 31%. Others receiving votes were Memphis HC Hardaway (14%), Georgia HC Crean (8%) and Ole Miss HC Davis (7%). An unidentified Big East Coach says of Mack: "He's a proven guy. The amount of success he had at Xavier speaks for itself. It's a natural fit going to Louisville. Excellent recruiter, gets the best out of his guys, and there's so much you can do at a place like Louisville." Another coach calls Hurley a "perfect fit" for the UConn job, citing, among other things, his connection to the East Coast. "Now he's at a program with more prestige, that has cache and history to it, and way more of a budget. Home run. Sleeping giant. It was the Kentucky, Duke -- they were a blueblood just five years ago. I don't see why they would not become or why they can't get back there." Meanwhile, Norlander and Parrish note: "Louisville and UConn were the two biggest jobs, though, and it was no guarantee they were going to get widespread public approval. They did because both of those universities were able to hire their No. 1 choice." (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
BYU AD Holmoe continues to point to a couple of years out when the next wave of conference realignment across the nation, driven again by new media contracts, may open up some opportunities for the Cougars. Until then, "status quo." Points to years in & around 2023, "After that time, if there isn't a change for BYU, then you have to rethink about what the future will be like." Holmoe says he's keeping a close eye on "what deals may look like" & mentions the big tech players like Google/YouTube & Twitter. (link)

Idaho State Prez Satterlee goes with AVP for Development Thiros as Interim AD for the Bengals. Thiros, who has spent 23 years at the university, "I am committed to setting the stage for a new athletic director. In the coming months, it’s my goal to ready our student-athletes, staff and coaches for success under a new athletic director’s leadership. Preparation is key, and we want to elevate our work and expectations. I believe our potential is great." The AD search will start in the next 30 days & looks to take four to six months. (link); With the openings in Pocatello & Moscow, we took a quick look at the tenures & paths of the last three Big Sky ADs at each league member. Interesting to see matriculation trends. (link)
$62.6M = North Carolina's fundraising haul for its most recently completed fiscal year, which marks the second-largest total in history for the Rams Club. $30.7M went to scholarship endowments, which was a record, as was $16.35M for the annual fund. $12.6M for capital projects, including FB's new indoor facility & new venues for Field Hockey, Soccer, LAX and T&F. (link)
Alabama FB HC Saban has allowed all sorts of cameras & microphones into his preseason camp. Why? "I felt like our program was being misrepresented in a lot of ways by a lot of people. We get a lot of negative recruiting. People beat us up in a lot of ways -- in a lot of unfair ways and a lot of things that aren't really true like we're a football factory. We don't care about the players, a lot of things like that, nobody has any fun. I mean, it's ridiculous. [...] I wanted to reestablish the kind of image in our program that we have in terms of all that we do for the players. I was just kind of tired of being misrepresented in so many ways and I wanted people to see for themselves, this is really how it is. It's not how you're told." (link)
The Dallas Morning News' Baby writes on the Texas A&M hire of new Chief Revenue Officer Coyle, which he calls "an indication of change coming to the world of college athletics revenue." As you might expect, Coyle points to the importance of data & one simple example of execution is changing the price of peanuts in certain sections of Kyle Field during games. Coyle: "If you just erase the whiteboard for a second and stop thinking like a sports team, what can we do differently that can generate a new revenue stream that we never even thought of before? That's a long-term question." Learfield EVP & CRO Rawlings also chimes in on the need for creative execution for major sponsors who want to engage at a deeper level with fans, "Gone are the days where a brand is going to be interested in just slapping a name on a building or a stadium." Interesting read overall, though it leaves the reader wishing Baby went deeper on Coyle's new role. (link)
TV/Streaming: NFL Chief Business & Media Officer Rolapp was asked about the future of the league's TV rights deals, many of which will be up for renegotiation by 2022 & he pointed to the lack of scale for notable digital entities. "Our entire model is about reach. Traditionally, broadcast television was the best way to achieve that." Another key point from Rolapp: "I've yet to see a tech company pull off a true broadcast-scale event." It seems that fact is lost on many people. (link); With Oklahoma's upcoming FB match-up with Army West Point set for pay-per-view (price point: $60), sports TV scheduling expert Sarzyniak notes how & why Big 12 members still leverage PPV. "Some credit goes to Oklahoma for scheduling well enough to monetize a game that involves a FBS opponent more often than not. The last time Oklahoma's pay-per-view game was a FCS opponent was 2012 vs. Florida A&M." (link); SBD/SBJ's Ourand goes in on WarnerMedia's sports strategy as it earned the rights to the highly-anticipated head-to-head golf match between Tiger Woods & Phil Mickelson later this year. $10M looks to have been the price tag. Ourand: "The takeaway was crystal clear: The media behemoth will emphasize the breadth of its offerings — mobile phones, telecommunications and satellite distributors, streaming services and cable TV channels — to convince leagues and teams to trust WarnerMedia with their media rights. WarnerMedia does not have a broadcast television network. But its executives believe that the huge variety of its offerings will be incredibly appealing to sports leagues and conferences."

Top Tier Associates Marketing & Communications Consultant Zeidler for Forbes, "The ROI Of Mentoring Young Talent." Thesis: "The nature of the mentor-mentee relationship can be clouded by conversations about the measurable return on investment (ROI). But, as any true talent coach or mentor will attest, there is no real measuring stick for the value of instilling legacy knowledge in another team member. And the relationship can work both ways for a win-win. Mentoring should be considered a perk of any job. While free lunches and gym memberships are certainly good for recruitment and company culture, younger professionals actually prefer coaching over any other benefit." Zeidler writes further on there being no dumb questions a mentee can ask, 'don't be attached to the outcome' & 'walk the walk.' (link)

Maryland: "In a letter hand delivered to every board member, as well as Gov. Larry Hogan, 13 members of The Champions Club, a group of high-level donors to the university and its athletic program, as well as eight current and former presidents of the Terrapin Club, expressed their support for [FB HC] Durkin." It read, in part: "We take great issue with the Maryland football program under Coach Durkin being labeled as any type of 'toxic environment.' Many of us have had the opportunity to regularly attend numerous football practices, team workouts, team dinners and team events, to travel with the team for away football games and be on the sideline for home football games. Others have sponsored and interacted repeatedly with football players that greatly respect DJ Durkin. We have all been witnesses to the exact opposite of a toxic environment. What we have witnessed is the exact opposite of any toxic environment. What we have witnessed is a coach and coaching staff deeply committed to obtaining excellence from every player on the field, in the classroom and in life." Member Jaklitsch calls Durkin a "gem." (link); The Baltimore Sun's Weaver wonders if the pressures of moving to the Big Ten are to blame for the passing of late Terps student-athlete McNair: "Maryland already invested hundreds of millions of dollars in this transition, including a nearly $200 million renovation to Cole Field House alone. Where it appears they did not spend money was in athlete care. Yes, in 2019, they will open a sports performance research center inside Cole Field House. But did the fact that the NCAA only recommended administrative health guidelines for student athletes, rather than require them, give financial bean counters the cover they needed not to make the investment? All indications suggest that Jordan McNair died of heatstroke in June, and the practice area lacked inexpensive ice tubs. Unintended consequences made manifest; it takes a tragedy to shine a light on that decision. This pressure was predictable. The fact that the Big Ten Conference appears to have strong-armed Maryland into sharing a one-page financial document with their board in order to make such a monumental decision likely began the snowball to Jordan McNair’s death. And in that case, everyone has blood on their hands." More (link)
Nebraska AD Moos met with the media yesterday morning & touched on a variety of topics. Doesn't think we've seen the end of the transfer wave, due in part to the difference in some schools being on the quarters system. "We're already seeing somewhat of a disadvantage of quarter schools versus semester schools."  Doesn't love night games as "it's a 14-hour day for the old AD," but is pleased with the recent Big Ten scheduling announcement, calls it "a little more fair" than the previous ways that resulted in "beating each other up and sliding out of potentially not getting in that final four." Fans can expect to see changes to the Tunnel Walk for the Huskers this season, with lights added and gates replaced. (link)
In a letter to Razorback fans, Arkansas boss Yurachek notes more facility projects on the way in Fayetteville, including a 40K square foot baseball clubhouse beyond right field of Baum Stadium. There will also likely be loge boxes as part of the building. Reconfigured seating, plus new concessions, locker rooms, training space & more looks to be on tap for the Randal Tyson Track Center. Additional enhancements also working their way through the approval process for John McDonnell Field that could be highlighted by a new 20K square foot Track Operations center. (link)

South Carolina FB will wear the script "Carolina" logo on the helmets this weekend and Senior Assoc AD for Marketing/Branding & CMO Nichols and his team have asked fans to wear apparel with the same logo on it. Nichols: "This isn’t intended to be a secondary logo. It’s more of a retro logo. We saw that there was a demand for the script 'Carolina' mark so they were putting together a program around it. They had a little more leverage when (head football coach Will) Muschamp has been seen wearing it. Those things kind of worked hand-in-hand." (link)
Also Noticed: The future College Football Playoff title game dates are out: Jan. 11, 2021 (Miami), Jan. 10, 2022 (Indianapolis), Jan. 9, 2023 (LA); Jan. 8, 2024 (Houston), Jan. 6, 2025 (TBA) and Jan. 5, 2026 (TBA) (link); Former Baylor FB HC Briles filed a 35-page motion yesterday in response to allegations brought by a former BU student who claims the school failed to properly respond to her complaints of physical assault by a former FB student-athlete. His motion reads, in part: "The facts will show that when made aware of allegations of sexual assault of domestic violence, Briles acted quickly and consistently to either suspend or remove players involved and to cooperate in university investigate processes. The facts further show a campus-wide problem of sexual assault that pre-dated Briles’ coaching tenure at Baylor and that the university has never fully acknowledged in an attempt to protect the Baylor brand." Briles goes on to assert that the school has had a long history of micromanagement by the Board of Regents and that some of the board met with Pepper Hamilton to pull some strings in the direction of the investigation. Lots here. (link); The ACC will consider playing MBB conference games in week 1 of the season or some in December, all to accommodate the 20-game league schedule in 2019-20.
