Yahoo's Forde argues Loyola-Chicago's run to the Final Four should push the MBB Committee to reconsider how it selects at-large participants. Missouri Valley Commish Elgin: "If you look at recent trends for at-large teams outside the power conferences, it’s a pretty discouraging landscape. For the good of the tournament, you’ve got to include teams like Loyola that are worthy. No matter what the model, you’re going to always leave out teams that could have and maybe should have been in. But I certainly think [Loyla’s run] is testament to the fact that you’ve got really good teams from conferences [outside the high-major echelon] that are worthy of multiple bids." Former NCAA VP Shaheen, who oversaw the Tourney for a number of years, with some eye-openers, "These are honorable people, but it is hard to entirely overlook that 60 percent of the votes come from 10 conferences. [...] The issue isn’t what Loyola accomplished. It’s that the committee hasn’t more clearly taken steps to insist that the reach of the game be a 351-team-deep obligation." (link); USA Today's Wolken inks on the same topic, gets thoughts from Illinois State HC Muller, "The committee has and will always say, past success has no impact on this year’s current selection or seeding and if you say that in a blanket statement, I think that’s appropriate in a lot of ways. But clearly you’re wrong about the quality of teams we have. […] It’s impossible to make it quote-unquote ‘fair.' If you have a team that’s 2-2 against Quad 1 and team that’s 6-6 that’s Quad 1 who’s getting in? It’s going to be 6-6 every time, but it’s the same percentage. They have more wins, but they have more losses, too." (link)
This will, hopefully, be the last thing I write about the Tennessee FB HC search under former Vols AD Currie as CBSSports.com's Dodd gets some feedback from inside the industry. Dodd notes the long line of coaches who applied for the opening through their agents & the mostly average, but some impressive, application materials sent along. One perspective from a source, "Half the time, if [agents] get the name of the school right in the email [it is surprising]. The presentations are so cookie cutter." Same source, another quote, "This one is the Murphy's Law of searches. This one will be talked about in conferences until 2042." One set of records I hadn't noticed to date is a list of questions UT officials prepared in the event N.C. State HC Doeren was hired, which included, "Why did you not talk to Les Miles?" (link)
Forbes' Belzer with his 'Most Powerful Women In U.S. Sports in 2018,' topped by NBPA Executive Director Roberts. From or connected to the college space, ESPN EVP & CFO Driessen at #4, BIG EAST Commish Ackerman at #5, the Rice Commission's namesake at #7, Penn State AD Barbour comes in at #13, San Antonio Spurs AC Hammon at #20, espnW SVP Gentile at #22 & NCAA SVP of Championships/SWA Comstock at #27. The voting panel consisted of a number of collegiate leaders like Korn Ferry's Hughes, Women Leaders in College Sports boss Phillips, Turnkey Sports & Entertainment's Savini, Witt/Kieffer's Young, Arizona State sports law professor Wong & others.

Miami (FL) MBB HC Larranaga on the MBB-FBI developments, "The distractions, they’re always going to be there. We don’t know how long this thing will last. It has now grabbed a lot of people, and brought a lot of very innocent people into the circle. Hopefully one day soon it will all be over with. But in the meantime, my staff and I are preparing for next season already. […] I think you know, I’m a very sensitive person. I’m very, very protective of my reputation and the reputation of our basketball program at Miami. When the big story, the scandal, broke back in September, I was more shocked than anybody, and did not feel that we should have ever been included in any of this." (link); U.S. District Judge Kaplan will not throw out a wiretap that included implicated runner Dawkins even though there is no indication on which federal officials approved the tap. Dawkins' attorney was attempting to suppress the evidence. (link)
Profile from The Athletic on former NCAA investigator Nevius, who was involved in the Ohio State tattoo saga back in 2011, a case that made him wonder if the governing body was on the right track. Nevius: "The groupthink was too strong. […] You’re just bombarded with what amounts to propaganda there. There wasn’t a lot of debate." Nevius exited Indy in 2012 to get a Master's at Columbia, but has since worked with notable attorney Kessler as part of his landmark case as Kessler says Nevius helped to "untangle" the NCAA rulebook. More Nevius, who has also started his own firm, "I wish I were wrong, but most fans know this is how college basketball works—illegal payments, shady agents, all of it—and they don’t care. It might even be part of the intrigue. The NCAA is going to make a billion dollars this month (on the NCAA Tournament) and no one is going to stop watching." (link)
New Mexico Higher Education Secretary Damron is pushing University of New Mexico officials to right the financial picture in athletics. Damron: "Folks are frustrated with this can being kicked down the road. I sent that (enhanced fiscal oversight program) letter Oct. 3. It’s been several months. I have to hold UNM accountable, and I will hold them accountable." New UNM Prez Stokes says she understands Damron's position, "But understanding this problem has been years in the making, and there needs to be real thought in how we best do this going forward. […] I think the regents expect it, the public expects it, our faculty expect it and I expect it." A report from the university is due by May 1. (link)
Variety's Steinberg writes on new ESPN Prez Pitaro & the coming ESPN+ OTT play, "ESPN has weathered any number of tempests in its nearly 40 years. But the perfect storm brewing in Bristol these days is bigger than any that Disney’s most valuable asset has ever faced." While Bruin Sports Capital's Pyne asks how many more subscribers the Worldwide Leader will lose in the next 10 years & others continue to cry wolf at a "broken model," monthly subscriber fees & affiliate/ad revenue are expected to continue to increase. EVP of Programming & Scheduling Magnus on ESPN+, "Some of the biggest events in those sports are already pay-per-view propositions in this country. We know there is an installed base of fans that have already demonstrated their willingness to pay for that content." More. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
Maryland Men's Soccer HC Cirovski is a leading voice within the sport pushing for competition season changes to keep student-athletes healthier, but also continuing to improve throughout a calendar year, much like their peers around the globe. College soccer's tight playing season pointed to as the tipping point for many injuries & Cirovski goes as far to say the sport will be endangered if things don't change. At the same time, the growth of the MLS' scouting prowess to secure the best talent adds another measure of pressure. Check out this data, "In 2013, nine of Top Drawer Soccer's Top 25 High School Players bypassed college, with another five dropping out before they graduated. That number steadily increased, with 18 out of 25 declining to play in college in 2016, with another two from the 2016 class signing deals before their junior year, meaning 80 percent of the top 2016 prospects aren't playing on college fields." Long read, lots more. (link)

The Chicago Tribune's Haugh: "Two key decisions that helped Loyola reach the Final Four." Former Ramblers boss & current Penn AD Calhoun credited for both moves: 1) The 2011 hire of MBB HC Moser; and, 2) The 2013 transition to the Missouri Valley Conference. Haugh compares Loyola's hardwood rise to the struggles at in-state brands Illinois & DePaul, "The right man for the job makes it more immediately obvious he is. The way Moser did with Calhoun and Steve Watson, Loyola’s current athletic director. The way Chris Collins did with Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips. Execution at any level of sports begins with inspiration, winning starts with dreaming." (link)
Yahoo's Wetzel with this headline: "Katie Ledecky turning pro shows the folly of the NCAA's white-knuckle grip on 'amateurism'." Wetzel: "She wants to be a student-athlete. She also can’t pass up the money. Which begs a simple question: Why did she have to choose? Ledecky isn’t giving up on college athletics as much as college athletics are giving up on her. In any sport, let alone one so desperate for the kind of star power that can draw in fans and media, who is served by the NCAA’s white-knuckle grip on the concept of 'amateurism'? Wouldn’t everyone – Ledecky, Stanford and the NCAA – benefit if she could continue to compete in college swimming and profit off her own talent and hard work?" A bit more on the history of amateurism and closes with this: "Rather than clutch their pearls and furrow their brow on how to create some massive set of rules to regulate everything, the NCAA needs to just relax and let capitalism crank."(link)
Arkansas professor Dittmore notes Ledecky's decision, adds more while wondering if the NCAA & USOC are truly partners as much of the messaging around Olympic Games proclaims. Dittmore's thesis: "College sport would certainly benefit from incentives aimed at increasing participation in Olympic sports. On the other hand, sports such as wrestling, ice hockey, and track and field often rely on the college system to train and develop athletes at no expense to the USOC. [...] Just as the USOC needs college athletics, college athletics also needs the USOC." More. (link)
The Birmingham City Council officially commits to contributing $3M annually for 30 years toward the expansion of the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex, which, of course, includes a downtown stadium for UAB. More financial details: "The BJCC Authority is committing $10.7 million to the annual debt service on the project. Jefferson County has committed $1 million a year for 30 years. UAB and corporate partners have committed to a combined $4 million a year for 10 years through a lease agreement, sponsorship and naming rights. In the agreement with BJCC, UAB football agrees to a 20-year lease at the new stadium." (link); High Point will build a new $130M basketball arena in time for use during the 2020-21 basketball season.  The basketball court will be named for Tubby and Donna Smith, who in February gave $1M to their alma mater for the naming honor, a few months before Coach Smith was rehired by the Panthers as MBB HC. Qubein says the school will pay cash for the building, which will take the place of existing intramural sports fields. Construction begins this summer. (link)
Louisville AD Tyra will announce Xavier MBB HC Mack as the Cards new boss later today, but his new contract will have to be approved by the university's Board of Trustees, not the ULAA, in what the Courier Journal's Sullivan calls "a significant shift in authority." University spokesman Karman: "In light of recent financial issues, the boards are trying to work more closely to ensure good stewardship of university resources." (link); Mack's new deal is reportedly in the seven-year, $28M range. Xavier AD Christopher says there's no hard deadline for his new hire and that no search firm has been hired at this point. (link)

More from Syracuse AD Wildhack on some key issues within his department, but also on high-level industry-wide topics. On the question of additional compensation for student-athletes, "I think we should at least consider is there something we can do in terms of allowing a student-athlete and their family being able to engage with an agent earlier. […] I think we should consider if there's something we can do with name and likeness. The devil is in the details on that. I think people need to be open to considering ideas like that in a way that reflects the fact that we're in 2018." More: "I do think one of the things we should look at is maybe trying to expand travel opportunities for the families of athletes. But between our support-services, our strength and conditioning, the training staffs, the quality of coaches, I think we provide a good environment. It's something we focus on daily. I tell people that we're here to develop young people." (link)
With the timing of former UC Riverside MBB HC Cutts' termination, some boosters are displeased with Highlanders AD Smith-Jones and her leadership style. Donor Devlin: "The time, place and manner gave UCR Athletics a black eye that has complicated efforts of the boosters and alumni to raise funds for the department." Devlin also points to Smith-Jones treating people rudely, being late to meetings, constantly being on her phone at sporting events and specifically blames Smith-Jones' "leadership or lack of leadership" for the departure of former Assoc. AD Maxwell. More Devlin: "The only way boosters and alumni can vote or have any say is through donating or non-donating and this is our only means of protesting the way she is running the department. ... A vote of no-confidence would have to come from the Chancellor … unfortunately I think the Chancellor isn’t that interested in athletics." In 2015-16 there were 532 UCR Athletics donors, that number rose to 632 a year later but this year stands at just 230. (link)
Interesting Twitter back & forth between ESPN's Bilas & notable mid-major proponent/TV analyst Adams on the topic of MBB scheduling. Of note, Adams, "Buy games slant the entire system period. If you cannot see that then we have nothing further to discuss/debate. No other sport/league with integrity allows teams to buy home games which slant every single metric in their favor. The numbers don't lie." Bilas: "And, “buy games” don’t get teams into the NCAA Tournament, so I’m not sure what your high school team has to do with it. Ask Nebraska and Penn State. The Big Ten was down, and both were hurt by it. No tears, it’s the business." Lots more. (link, link)
A look at Eastern Michigan's 2017 $32.3M budget included $23.1M transferred across from the institution. FB ticket sales generated $671K, guaranteed road game cash equaled $1.45M, while contributions tallied $195K. Lots more on financial situation in Ypsilanti.

Included in the group's demands is moving the Eagles' athletic portfolio to the Horizon or DII GLIAC. (link)
More on the situation at Arkansas State and major donor Fowler, who owns HomeTroniX. During a recent RFP process for audiovisual needs in the football stadium expansion project, HomeTroniX submitted a $517K bid, which, according to information published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, was the lowest bid. The contract, however, was awarded to Sound Concepts for its $533K bid. It was later revealed that Sound Concepts submitted multiple bids, including a $497K one. Fowler's issue is that he was told using Crestron Electronics was not a requirement in the bid process, but that HomeTroniX's proposal was later rejected because it didn't include Crestron. Red Wolves Foundation Board of Directors Prez Woodard: "Let us state unequivocally, that at no time has the Red Wolves Foundation, or its designated representatives, lied or acted dishonestly in regard to accepting bids (or in any other manner) as it relates to the bidding of work for the North Endzone Expansion." (link)
Also Noticed: The NCAA COI found that UT Chattanooga Men's Tennis HC did not promote an atmosphere of compliance and that the school did not monitor the living arrangements of three Men's Tennis student-athletes, who received reduced-cost housing from a booster. $5K fine, two years of probation, vacation of records, reduced scholarships and four-year disassociation with the booster are part of the penalties.

In this edition of the Harvard Business Review, author and Babson College Global Leadership Professor Cross and Virginia Professor Gray suggest "The Best Way to Network in a New Job." The pair's research revealed that successful newcomers were "more selective and less superficial in their outreach. They still set up a lot of exploratory meetings, but they used them to ask plenty of questions, offer expertise and assistance where they were able, create mutual wins, and generate energy." Early contact with key opinion leaders and fellow newcomers proved more beneficial than forming a strong tie to a formal mentor or leader in the first nine months on the job. As years 2-4 on the new job approach, then effective networkers can shift their strategy and streamline their interactions with close colleagues, allowing them to reach "across boundaries to connect with new people in different functions or divisions and to those with similar values and passions, even when there is no clear short-term incentive to do so." (link)
