Maryland: ESPN's Dinich sources some close to the situation in College Park before late Terps FB student-athlete McNair collapsed amid a workout & later passed away. McNair family attorney Murphy, "there is an unexplained one-hour time period when nothing significant was done to avoid the complications of heatstroke. Although there is some evidence they allegedly tried to cool him down, he should have been iced immediately. He presented at the hospital with a temperature of 106, which means he was not cooled down." Dinich gets comment from multiple individuals at the workout who say McNair was having visible trouble during the workout, despite UMD AD Evans previously stating McNair didn't fall ill until after the workout was complete. One student-athlete's perspective, "There were multiple people that said, 'Wow, Jordan looks f---ed up, he doesn't look all right.' We knew he was really exhausted, but we didn't know he was in danger of his life. But that doesn't mean that a medical professional shouldn't know to put him in an ice tub." More. (link); Later yesterday evening ESPN released another report, this one from headliners Dinich, Rittenberg & VanHaaren alleging a "toxic" culture around Maryland FB. More student-athletes are on the record, pointing to "a culture based on fear & intimidation," the "belittling, humiliation and embarrassment of players," "extreme verbal abuse," & "Coaches have endorsed unhealthy eating habits and used food punitively; for example, a player said he was forced to overeat or eat to the point of vomiting." The tactics of Asst. AD for FB Sports Performance Court are specifically called to the mat, "He's really in your face. He'll call you [expletives], he'll challenge you in the weight room. He'll put more weight on the bar than you can do, ever done in your life, and expect you to do it multiple times. He'll single people out he doesn't like, which is a common practice here. Guys are run off. They'll have them do specific finishes at the end and do harder workouts or more workouts just to make their lives miserable here. He's kind of [FB HC] Durkin's tool to accomplish that. He's the guy people hate, and that way Durkin doesn't have to take the blow for it. Guys can't stand Coach Court." Lots more allegations. The university says members of the athletic department have been placed on leave, but doesn't detail exactly whom. No further comment from UMD brass. (link)
Ohio State: Former Florida AD Foley won't comment on if he knew about abuse allegations surrounding former Gators FB AC Smith during his time in Gainesville. Alleged 2009 domestic abuse indecent in question. (link); The Columbus Dispatch's Narciso jumps in on why the Powell County (OH) police department won't provide more open records in the 2015 case involving Smith if it's indeed closed. Comparatively, "Under Ohio open-records laws, open cases are exempt from public release or review." For now, Powell's legal counsel says the case materials are "inextricably intertwined" & therefore won't release it even with redactions. Columbus-based criminal defense attorney Shamansky calls the tactics "utterly ridiculous...they reflect, clearly, the attempts of a police agency to conceal information. The real question is, who are they (police) trying to protect?" (link)
Swag: On the heels of shoe selling at North Carolina, Michigan officials are also looking into the possibility that student-athletes cashed-in on special model kicks as 23 UM pairs were found on shoe-marketplace site StockX. Assoc. AD for FB Communications Ablauf: "We are aware of the report at North Carolina. Our compliance office is looking into this matter and will determine if anything needs to be reported to the NCAA." (link); ESPN's Rovell & DePaula indicate UNC brass reached out to Michigan, Marquette & Cal leaders to inform them of their shoe versions turning up during the Tar Heels' review process. StockX CEO Luber: "Oregon obviously has a long and storied history with Nike, but Michigan is the cool new kid on the block due to the continuing hype surrounding its landmark [Jordan] deal (which began in August 2016)." The Golden Eagles say they'll start wearing kicks for multiple games, which should decrease their value, as well as stitching on player numbers. The Ducks are notable for locking up shoes after games to make sure they don't hit the open market. Eye-opening: Average price for the 23 Michigan pairs on StockX was $4,671. (link)
Former standout Idaho student-athlete Kiser says on leave AD Spear threatened her with not having a chance to make the Vandals' Hall of Fame, despite being a "shoo-in," if she decided to transfer to Washington State back in 2014. Further from Kiser, "(Spear) said to me, if I left, the Vandal community would be upset and disgraced. I ran with a broken foot for more than a year. ... He told me they paid for my four years and that I owed them that last year." Kiser eventually left Moscow to walk-on for the Cougars, but never competed after being denied the opportunity to do so in a 4-1 vote by the President's Advisory Athletic Council. U of I Director of the Ethics Center Stoll was the one vote in favor of Kiser, says Spear can command & influence a room, "I thought everybody in that room would vote to release her. I was so surprised that it didn’t go that way. ... I just think the NCAA was wrong (to restrict transfers). ... Obviously I must have been right, because they got rid of the stupid rule." More. (link)
New Mexico Prez Stokes on state Attorney General Balderas pushing back on the process that led to the four sport cuts for the Lobos, "[Litigation] has happened at other universities that have made decisions to cut sports. So it’s not unexpected that people might pursue that as a way of dealing with it. […] [AD] Eddie’s [Nuñez] report is final. I accepted that recommendation. What we’ve been doing since is gathering all of the backup information that could potentially enrich the public understanding of how we got to where we are. […] Neither Eddie Nuñez or I have hidden the fact that we wished that we — that some of the issues surrounding our athletics programs at UNM had been resolved prior to our arrival. The reason they aren’t is because they’re very difficult issues for us to manage, for people to manage. So how do we turn the corner? I think it’s one day at a time." (link)'s Sallee got feedback from one-fifth of the 129 FBS HCs on the question of if student-athletes should be compensated for their name, image & likeness. 52% were in favor. Notable comments, "[Yes, but] how do you do it and keep the whole amateurism [model]? If you can do it and keep what we're doing somehow where it's not out of control, I think they have every right to. […] It's their name, their image, their likeness. Nobody is going broke off of college football. What is the NCAA worth, a billion dollars? Why shouldn't players be able to tap into that? […] No. I don't like the way that's going, to be honest, because I think we're turning them into professional athletes. I'm not sure coaches deserve that right, either. I'd like to see us stay more of an amateur sport. From my view where I see college football going, everything is driven by money and it's less like amateur sports. I think we're losing the college atmosphere." More. (link)
LSU makes two changes to its substance abuse policies: 1) First-time enrollees don't automatically go into a drug-testing plan with a positive test from their initial screening; 2) Violations can be expunged with four months of no issues. Tigers Senior Assoc. AD/SWA Segar on #1, "Instead of moving the student straight into the (testing) policy and giving them one strike, we give them an education and an opportunity. If they don’t have another positive, they don’t enter the drug-testing policy." (link); The Bayou Bengals are set to add the largest video board in college baseball to Alex Box Stadium. 37.8' tall x 71.4' wide. The addition will be ready for opening day next year. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
Gotta imagine this UAB FB spot is going to win a ton of awards. Bonfires, tattoos, #WinAsOne, Blazer logo faded into a haircut, gridiron action, youth support, fervent fans, sports cars, muscled-up dudes, hype. (link); Out-of-home TV viewing of sports is no joke. World Cup TV ratings rose by 21% when taking into account OOH. 18-34 age demo was an astounding 51% OOH for the England-Croatia semi. (link)

Wake Forest AD Wellman has placed MBB AC Jones on leave stemming from the NYC incident with Floridian Szabo & his subsequent passing. The release from Wake says Jones "agreed that the decision was appropriate at this time given the circumstances." (link)
Arizona AD Heeke reflects on a challenging year that included MBB's connection to the FBI saga, hiring a new FB HC, yet also witnessing a number of high-level accomplishments for Wildcat squads on & off the field. "There were some real, real challenges, no doubt. But in the midst of all of that, I really believe we had a good year. On one side, we learned a lot. We’re going to be better for that. On the other side, we were pretty good competitively. [...] It was at times very challenging, complex, confusing — but at the same time, I found it really exciting and exhilarating. You’ll always be faced with challenges in this industry, not unlike large companies or businesses. … All you do is step back, face it head-on and try to deal with the situation in the best way possible, learn and grow from it and be better coming out the other side. I never felt like something was overwhelming or insurmountable." Lots more on specific topics, including this advice on HC searches, "You can’t get caught up in the external world that wants to influence or get involved in the process. You’ve got to stay focused. You know where you want to go." (link)
Kansas State rolls out a litany of fan experience upgrades to Bill Snyder Family Stadium for the upcoming home slate. Of note, there's now a beer garden that will open two hours before the game to all supporters, $1.5M was spent to spruce up the Peoples State Bank East Club, addition of a wireless video board camera for "enhanced views of game action," cell phone charging stations, more. (link); Wildcats AD Taylor on the beer garden execution, "We talked last time about alcohol sales and I got some emails from folks that were concerned. This is not our step into general alcohol sales in the stadium but it does give our fans an opportunity to come in and have a beverage in a controlled environment. It was available last year but it was a special ticket. Now we are going to open it up a little bit more. We are just trying to enhance our fans' experience and opportunities when they come in. This will be a great addition." (link)
New Chicago State AD Zorich on his hoops hires, "The idea that somebody is going to criticize me because I’m not doing something right and they’re not sitting in my shoes, it’s not a big deal to me. [...] I’ve been around success. But athletics doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t come from someone who cares. I want our players to remember Lance when they’re 40 or 50 years old, just like I remember the coaches that made a difference in my life." Cougars MBB Irvin: "You know it’s going to be tough, because we missed some major recruiting periods. But with my relationships, I hope to overcome them. But I’m not going to tell you it’s not going to be tough. That’s the reality of it." (link)
"Here’s what it was: It was over a period of the last few years, once or maybe twice a season after late-night games the players would go for pizza and I would give them money out of my pocket – $50 or $60. That’s it." That's longtime UC San Diego Women's Soccer HC McManus on the possible NCAA violations connected to his abrupt retirement. No additional comments from the university. (link)
More Personnel: Tennessee AD Fulmer says there is "no one better suited" to lead the Lady Vols WBB program than HC Warlick, who received a $25K raise as part of her new deal. Base now $690K. (link); USA Today's Berkowitz with some new salary figures out of Texas A&M, S&C HC Schmidt gets $575K in base pay, made $339K at Oklahoma last year. DC Elko at $1.8M base. (link); Texas Tech extends Baseball HC Tadlock, Dir. of T&F/XC Kittley, Men's Golf HC Sands and Women's Tennis HC Petty. Tadlock's new deal is for seven years, $1M/per. (link, link); The Las Cruces Sun News looks at the incentives in New Mexico State coaching contracts. MBB HC Jans earned a $35K performance incentive last year and will get a retention bonus of $159K on Nov. 1 in lieu of an increase to his base salary of $270K. The retention bonus next November is $139K. Season tix sales bonus incentive went from 10% to 20% in his new deal. Base salary will go up to $290K in 2019-20, owes 100% if he leaves in first two seasons, 50% thereafter. More details included for the contracts and incentives of Jans, WBB HC Atkinson (base $130K) and Softball HC Rodolph (base $85K).

MIT Leadership Center leaders Ancona and Gregersen penned for the Harvard Business Review about "The Power of Leaders Who Focus on Solving Problems." Thesis: "We found several common threads in the work of problem-led leaders. Most striking is that none of these leaders has any expectation that they will attract 'followers' personally — by dint of their charisma, status in a hierarchy, or access to resources. Instead, their method is to get others excited about whatever problem they have identified as ripe for a novel solution. Having fallen in love with a problem, they step up to leadership — but only reluctantly, and only as necessary to get it solved." More: "Leadership becomes an intermittent activity as people with enthusiasm and expertise step up as needed, and readily step aside when, based on the needs of the project, another team member’s strengths are more central. Rather than being pure generalists, leaders pursue their own deep expertise, while gaining enough familiarity with other knowledge realms to make the necessary connections. No one assumes that the life of a team, or even organization, will be prolonged for its own sake. They expect to be involved in a series of initiatives with contributors fluidly assembling and disassembling. It’s a key leadership talent, then, to know how to put together a team. To tackle a problem, they need to find the right talent and to convince others that their project offers the chance to be part of a breakthrough. (Talented people always have other options, after all.)"  (link)

Hoops Changes: Kansas HC Self: "The one thing I think we all have to do is we all have to be able to adjust to change and allow change to play out. ... What may appear to be very negative may turn out to be positive,” Self said, “and certainly there’s been many things throughout the NCAA where, when changes were made, everybody thought the sky was falling and it turned out to be OK." (link); News & Observer's DeCock on Duke's Coach K: "Mike Krzyzewski had a lot to say about the NCAA basketball reforms this morning. Criticized aspects of the process and lack of coordination with other stakeholders, not the intent. He brought a prop: A group photo of the 2005 NCAA-NBA-USA Basketball summit to underline his point. ... His two main specific criticisms: Failure to approve proposals for additional summer skills development and allowing more members of basketball staff to work with players." (link); Knight Commission: "#NCAA basketball reforms are good steps forward but financial disclosure changes should go further" (link); CBSSports' Norlander breaks down the changes with agents and players. He and DeCock with an informed back-and-forth on Twitter. (link, link); Do these changes hurt the smaller schools? Rivals National Recruiting Analyst Evans thinks so: "They’re caring about the 1 percent of the 1 percent. This industry, this entire sport, it’s made by the 99.9 percent. I get you want to sell and take care of the elite stars, but the elite talent is nothing without the role guys or the low-majors." (link); The Athletic's Moore: "I went through last few drafts/combines and pulled names of players who could return to school under the NCAA's new rule. If you polled these players, I would bet most would not have elected to return to school. Something to consider if any coaches complain about it." That list included Kansas' Newman, Duke's Duval, Arizona's Trier and Alkins, South Carolina's Bowen and UNLV's McCoy from 2018 draft. (link); NCAA MBB will have a mass conference call next Monday to discuss. (link)
Kentucky AD Barnhart with some salient points on what it takes to get butts in seats at Kroger Field: "There’s discretionary time and discretionary dollars for all fans in what they do, and the other is the way people by tickets in today’s world. With the way to buy available tickets on secondary markets, people are making the decision to not have a season ticket and just say, 'I’ll just go ahead buy what’s available from someone else who is not going and catch it on a secondary market.' Well, that changes, obviously, the stable finances for programs that count on season tickets and that stability. Doesn’t mean you can’t sell the ticket, but it has to mean that you are selling it differently. So everyone is, I won’t say, freaking out, but they go, 'Oh, my gosh, season ticket numbers are down!' They are sort of stagnant and down a lot of places and that’s not usual. Again, there’s programs that have had incredible success that are seeing numbers drop because the ticket-buying mechanism for a lot of folks is different." Further: "If you’re asking people to invest six, seven hours of the day, you’ve got to make sure that you do it right. ... At the end of the day, you have to provide a really good product on the field but at the end of the day, you also have to be cognizant of those other pieces." (link)
Eastern Washington's athletic department has a $5M deficit, which newish AD Hickey is focusing on eliminating. Hickey: "We’re working on a long-term plan. We know we need to do a better job at fundraising. It’s all about building relationships. There's not a whole lot more we can cut, I don't see much we can really ding right now." EWU's FY17 revenues breakdown: ticket sales ($816,157), contributions ($732,875), rights/licensing ($1,742,568), student fees ($7,497,272) and the "other" ($175,368). The Eagles played eight home FB games in 2016, which helped the numbers. During that year, spent $5.175M on coaches, $4.151M on scholarships, $153K on facilities/overhead and $6.274M on "other." Hickey won't make the proposed Roos Field revamp public until it is a "good, sound, set design," but notes the immediate importance of providing better fan amenities, adequate seating, restrooms and concessions and a good student experience for home FB games. (link)
Troy AD McClain releases the Trojans' Year in Review, highlights the Sun Belt FB Championship, Baseball's trip to NCAA Regionals, community involvement and solid APR & GPA scores from student-athletes. McClain: "As we wrap up the 2017-18 academic year, I feel so blessed to be a Trojan. It has been another remarkable year, highlighted by many individual and team records and the outstanding support offered our student-athletes by the Troy University community. None of this would be possible without the support we receive from Trojans around the country. At a time when we have been laser-focused on growing into a premier FBS athletic department, this support has allowed us to reach many of our goals. While there is plenty of road left to travel, the future is very bright for Troy Athletics. Together we can succeed as … One TROY!" (link)
Memphis Men's & Women's Soccer are returning to campus thanks to a completion of a $500K project to put lights at Billy J. Murphy Track and Soccer Complex. AD Bowen: "This really is an epic moment to put a capstone on a project that began with a gift from the Hardin Foundation. One of the goals of that project was to bring Memphis soccer back home. Thank you to Dr. Rudd for bringing our men's and women's soccer programs home permanently." (link); New Hampshire will soon break ground on the first phase of a new Soccer and LAX facility made possible from an anonymous grant from the Eleanor and Clarence Prevo Fund. AD Scarano: "We are very grateful for the continued support of our alumni and donors who share our vision for excellence in all we do. This facility is not only critical for the future success of our lacrosse and soccer programs, but is a fabulous asset for the surrounding community." The Oyster River Youth Association will have access to the space, as well. Phase one includes infrastructure prep and installation of synthetic field, goals and perimeter fencing. Phase two "will be predicated on future fundraising and completion of the first phase," but will include field lighting, storage area and 3K-seat grandstand, press box, enhanced landscaping and covered team benches. $1.7M still needed for the second phase to move forward. $3.5M project overall. (link)
Also Noticed: $21M+ = total legal defense costs for North Carolina for the academic saga that enveloped the Tar Heels for a number of years. (link); Tulsa and Blockparty are now partners. (link); NCAA Men's LAX will get a 60-second shot clock this year, in addition to a shrinking substitution box which goes from 20 to 10 yards. (link); Football attendance was up in HC Fleck's first year at Minnesota, but season ticket sales are down. Sold 22,131 last year, at 21,405 a week ago, but renewal rate of 87% stayed the same year-over-year. TCF Bank Stadium seats 50,805, Gophers averaged 44,358 a year ago, up from 2016's mark of 43,813. (link); A lawsuit filed against Nike on Thursday seeks class action status, alleges "women's careers (at Nike) are blunted because they are marginalized and passed over for promotions. ... Nike judges women more harshly than men, which means lower salaries, smaller bonuses, and fewer stock options. Women's complaints to human resources about discrimination and harassment, including sexual assault, are ignored or mishandled." Filed on behalf of four former employees but could reach 500 members. (link); Buffalo FB will play at Missouri in 2024. (link); Bowling Green FB adds home games with Murray State in 2021 and Eastern Kentucky in 2022. Both come with $350K guarantees.
