Rules Review:
+ As you likely know, student-athletes will be allowed to transfer without getting approval from their HCs starting in October. Student-athletes must notify their respective athletic department, then have two business days to submit their name to a national database at which point other coaches can contact them. Tampering with a current s-a at another school will be a Level 2 violation. Transfer Working Group chair & South Dakota State AD Sell proud of the moves forward as his group will continue to vet grad transfer regulations & a potential uniform transfer rule. Also of note from yesterday was FB student-athletes not having to take a redshirt unless they play in more than four games. DI Council chair & Miami (FL) boss James, "This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being. Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries." (link, link)
+ AFCA boss Berry on the new redshirt rule, "It’s something that has been a long battle. It’s a win for the student-athlete, and our coaches are tremendously excited about this opportunity. This is great for student-athletes. Rarely do we have something that goes through all levels (of coaching support) in a unanimous fashion. This one did. I’m excited about it." Florida AD Stricklin: "(This rule change) is a step in the right direction. In some ways, the old model could be really unfair to players." (link)
+ Nebraska AD Moos on the same topic, "To tell you the truth, I think it’s just the very beginning of a broader reform [...] there were schools that were all over the place in regards to allowing athletes to have a chance to explore another option." (link)
+ North Dakota State AD Larsen: "I expected it to be for next year, but I guess the more you think about it, why not? The season is still a couple of months away so I think it's a great thing." (link)
+ Other rule changes of note, "the Division I Football Oversight Committee agreed to use a four-year average of historical bowl eligibility data to determine the number of primary bowl commitments each Football Bowl Subdivision conference may reasonably contract for the bowl cycle spanning the 2020-21 to 2025-26 seasons." More. (link)
Former Fresno State AD Bartko says he didn't voluntarily step away from his leadership position last year, but was instead forced to do so. Bartko: "Despite what the public has been told by Fresno State, and despite cruel rumors spread about me personally and professionally both before and after my departure. I did not leave Fresno State by choice or for 'personal reasons.' [...] Given the facts about how I was treated over the last ten months of my employment. I believe Fresno State’s actions against me and the handling of my forced exit were unlawful." University VP for Administration/AVP for Auxiliary Services Adishian-Astone indicates Bartko did received & cashed the $75K check for his severance pay. (link)
Sounds like the NCAA's lengthy investigation at Baylor should conclude soon after the 2018-19 academic year begins with a full finalization of matters next year. The Star-Telegram's Engel gets feedback from a source close to the situation, "If people are expecting some sort of 'Death Penalty,' I think they are going to be disappointed." Engel also says former FB HC Briles could be fully exonerated & there's hope in Waco that the NCAA result at North Carolina could "yield similar results." (link)
Big 12 leaders don't seem overly enthused by the ACC's idea of expanding the NCAA MBB Tourney to 72 teams. Big 12 Commish Bowlsby: "Have 172 — you still have four on the outside looking in. Sixty-eight has been pretty good. A few play-in games is a good place to be. Seventy-two changes the math a little bit and gives you compression in the first week of the tournament that is not entirely desirable." Iowa State AD Pollard on the timing of the proposal, "I got other things to worry about besides that. I was a little surprised they brought that up for the same reason. There are bigger challenges out there than that, to me, right now." (link)
Georgia Tech AD Stansbury on the name, image, likeness debate, "My big thing is, how do we make sure that it doesn’t get abused. [...] And that to me, I think, is the thing that concerns me the most, is how do we ensure that some big donor isn’t behind the fact that this kid just got (an exorbitant sum of money) signing his autograph, and those types of things." Stansbury also notes he has an eye on developing lawsuits & how they may change the amateur model, "A lot of moving parts, that's for sure." (link)
"We in the west are behind in the facility movement. On the other side of the Mississippi, with the Big Ten and the SEC, when you move in and out of those circles, you become keenly aware of the situation. It wasn’t until Oregon started its (football) run that that’s what caused a lot of us to catch up." That's Arizona AD Heeke on the push to upgrade Arizona Stadium to the tune of $150M to $200M & adding a new indoor space. While a decent portion of the work will come from private giving, the San Jose Mercury News' Wilner points to a commitment by campus as key for the Wildcats to keep pace nationally. (link)
College of Charleston AD Roberts reflects on his first 18 months leading the Cougars, points to a facilities master plan that is currently at the top of his list, "We should see our first renderings by the end of the month. It’s a comprehensive plan that will touch every single sport that is housed at Patriots Point." No word yet on potential investment needs, though Roberts hopes there's dirt moving in 2019. Looks like TD Arena could get two new high def video boards, a new floor & more loge boxes. Points to the likes of Gonzaga & Wichita State as brands he'd like CofC to eventually be in same category with & notes the difficulty of mid-major programs hanging on to high-achieving HCs. On the future of the industry, "If any athletic director tells you they know what’s going to happen with the landscape of college athletics and conference affiliations they are lying because no one knows. It can be so volatile. It’s something I know our conference has their eye on. It was something we discussed at our athletic director’s meeting last month. We want to be proactive and prepared if there is a shift." More. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
The 2018 World Cup starts today from Moscow. Get ready to see a lot of Anheuser-Busch, Adidas, McDonald's & Coca-Cola. Amazon & Google, as well as Verizon, have all also invested heavily in sponsorship & ad units around Fox programming. Fox Sports SVP for Ad Sales Petruzzi, "We think this will be the biggest, most lucrative World Cup to air on English-language TV," topping the $187M pulled in by Disney back in 2014. (link)

Kansas's involvement in the MBB-FBI developments has impacted the off-season participation of student-athlete De Sousa & Jayhawks HC Self recently said he's "very confident" that his entire roster will be available next season. De Sousa's guardian has continually said no foul play was involved & De Sousa himself commented, "I am not really worried about it. I know I didn’t do anything so I don’t need to worry about it." (link)
Oklahoma State AD Holder on a recent podcast, "You've got to give credit to Mike Gundy. He's really matured into a difference-maker as a coach. I would approach recruiting a little differently than he does. I'd want to finish higher in those recruiting rankings than we consistently do. I think that ultimately puts a ceiling on what you're able to achieve … I think sometimes we settle when we don't have to."'s Tramel agrees with Holder on the recruiting angle, but wonders how the comments will impact the sometimes rocky relationship between the two leaders, "Seems like all this latest salvo will do is drive a wedge back between two OSU icons and galvanize the detractors of each." (link)
The Bowling Green Daily News's Stephens notes budget cuts at Western Kentucky at a time when others around Conference USA (read: North Texas) are adding to their top lines with more student fee monies. Toppers AD Stewart: "We’ve had incredible success against them, yet they gained $4.5 million on us in one week. That was really frustrating." Stewart continues by noting many of his peers have external problems of competitive success, but his are mainly internal as winning hasn't been an issue for WKU. Stewart's 2018-19 budget is $23.3M, 12th in the league, $4M+ less than the league average. (link); Conference USA is also getting strategic with its WBB schedule, which will now will feature the last two games of the year for each member against opponents in the same general competitive tier, while also considering geography. (link)
Former Maine MBB HC Walsh chats with UMBC boss Odom on the latest installment of the Dynamic Leadership Podcast. You can guess what the main topic of conversation ended up being. Odom: "Yes the coach has to believe you’re going to win but more importantly the players have to believe it. An internally or player led team is so much better than a coach led team. [...] There will always be challenges in any new venture. But when you have the combination of good character, eagerness to work, and willingness to listen, it puts you ahead of the game." (link)
A big move in the Track & Field/Cross Country space as Texas AD Del Conte & his team recruit Kentucky HC Floreal away from the Wildcats. Floreal: "I would be remiss if I didn’t start off by thanking Mitch Barnhart and everyone at Kentucky. I’m so grateful for all the support they gave me in building a world-class program there. It’s because of them that I have an opportunity like this, and I am so excited to be the head coach at Texas. It’s the elite of the elite in track and field programs, and the potential to achieve greatness is fantastic. You have the premier track and field state in the country to recruit in, a rich and proud history, and are the flagship institution of the state. It’s truly an amazing opportunity." (link)

"Under the new contract terms, dismissed coaches would be required to furnish UH with copies of income tax returns and would be prohibited from 'volunteer' or 'trial' arrangements 'utilizing deferred or partially deferred compensation arrangements.'" (link)
More perspective on the AD search USF comes from SVP for Advancement & USF Foundation boss Momberg, who is part of the internal search committee, "We are just going with the flow right now. The sooner the better, but we just want to make sure that we hire someone that can build on what we’ve got." Search committee chair & leading sports marketing thinker Sutton, "We have a hockey team that was the number one franchise two years ago in all professional sports. We just have to do our share and live up to that and have one of the greatest athletic programs we can possibly have to go along with the great university." (link); The Bulls have also received two $1M gifts towards its new indoor FB practice facility, one of which was committed by Prez Genshaft & her husband. (link)
Still newish Louisville AD Tyra has been quite busy in his early months leading the Cardinals, succeeding at inking key HCs to new deals & working to restructure some of the finances in the Derby City. Tyra: "I think we have a lot of momentum. Inside the department, we joke — we coined my son's phrase, 'Morale is up.' It is up. We're having a lot of fun." Also, on signing extended deals with leading HCs, "They see the upside of what we have, and they know we're not done investing in them and investing in their programs. That speaks volumes." (link)
SMU's Mustang Club stacked a record $24.3M in 2017-18, a sharp 31% increase year over year. The Mustang Athletic Fund totaled $6.1M, up 20% over last year & 300% in the last 10. AD Hart: "We are grateful to the donors whose investments enable us to prepare students for life, compete for championships and provide an exceptional student-athlete experience. […] Their efforts play a huge role as we work towards our goal of being the best athletic program in the American Athletic Conference." (link)
Old Fox-Comcast-Disney: $65B in cash & stock is Comcast's official first bid for Old Fox. Overall, it's a 19% premium, pre-tax, over Disney's offer. Enders Analysis's namesake founder, "So far Comcast has put a lot more muscle and aggression into its moves. Clearly the resolve on the Comcast side is absolute." (link); Interestingly, both Comcast & Disney have offered to unload the 22 regional sports networks that are part of the deal if federal regulators push for such a move. (link); A WSJ trio write on what's next for the AT&T-Time Warner marriage, which looks to include the exit of Turner CEO Martin. (link)
Our thoughts & prayers are with the Maryland family as FB student-athlete McNair has passed away after being hospitalized following a team workout late last month. Terps HC Durkin: "Our team is heartbroken with the loss of Jordan McNair. Jordan was an incredible young man, and his passion and enthusiasm made him an invaluable and beloved member of our team. Jordan was a hard worker and he always had a smile on his face. He was an extremely talented football player and a humble and genuine human being. He embodied the essence of what it means to be a teammate. Jordan was a fighter. Over the past few weeks, Jordan never gave up with his family, friends and team by his side. Our team will continue to be inspired by the spirit of this brave together. Please continue to pray for Jordan’s family during this difficult time." (link)

(link); To be a new season ticket holder for Football at Georgia, it takes 23,900 priority points plus $275/seat for renewable season tickets. The previous record cutoff was 10,651 points in 2008.

(link); South Alabama Football will play at LSU in 2024. (link)
Stitch Fix went public last February & is currently valued at nearly $2B. Company CEO Lake was part of the New York Times Corner Office series, which included some interesting insights. On work environments, " much of your work experience is enjoying the people you work with. Optimizing for who you're around is important." On building the right management team, "One of the biggest challenges standing in the way of diversity and equal opportunity for people is the way that people build founding teams. People tend to bring on my buddy from this thing and then my buddy from that thing, and it’s like, 'You’re just kind of bringing the same people that you’ve worked with back together, getting the gang together again to found another company.' That just creates this circle of capital raising that I think is not healthy, and I don’t think people are looking at the whole world and saying, 'Who are the best people for these jobs?'" (link)
