(Watch) The Power Of Social Media: Pitt’s Lyke & SM2’s Cecil
"Athletics continues to face a number of challenges, and progress in key areas has been elusive. To achieve the level of success we need and expect, I have determined a change in leadership is necessary. […] Since becoming chancellor, I have spent countless hours with higher education peers and Jayhawks to hear their perspective on KU. A common thread in these conversations is that, as a major public university with national aspirations, we must continue to strive for excellence in all areas — including athletics. As I have said many times, a successful athletics department is inextricably linked to our broader mission as a flagship research university. The other common thread in these conversations is optimism for Kansas Athletics. Across the country, we are recognized as having elite programs, a proud tradition, and a loyal fan base. These assets will serve us well as we identify a new leader for Kansas Athletics." Part of the release from Kansas Chancellor Girod on his decision to hire a new AD in a process that will be aided by Korn Ferry. Deputy AD Lester will serve as Interim, former Interim AD Jennings to chair the internal committee. (link); USA Today's Berkowitz notes outgoing KU boss Zenger is owed $1.4M as a buyout. Also, "Contract does not mention duty to mitigate or that buyout is subject to offset from future pay." (link)
Ball State-Goetz: "She will instill a culture of excellence in Ball State athletics that will infuse pride and passion in our students, our alumni and our fans as we embark on our second century. Beth also has been successful generating revenues for other universities, including boosting attendance at athletic events and raising philanthropic support." That's BSU Prez Mearns on his hire of UConn COO/SWA Goetz as the new AD in Muncie. Goetz: "I am a product of public school education and have spent the majority of my career at public research universities. The core values of academic excellence, integrity, respect for diversity, and a classroom that extends beyond campus walls are my guiding principles. (link, link); Here's video of the full presser. (link); Goetz also already did her first sit down with the Cardinals & here's the 12-plus minute conversation. (link)
Despite a tight budget and plans to upgrade facilities, Fresno State Prez Castro maintains he has no plans to reduce programs, meaning it's likely that demonstrated fundraising success will be an especially desirable trait in whomever the school selects as its next AD. Castro also asserts that the "timing is not right" for increasing student fees to bolster the program, even though the university receives a comparatively low $4.4M annually via student fees. For comparison, San Diego State takes in $10.6M. Meanwhile, general fund support has increased from $5.1M in 2013-14 to $11.25M this year, and Castro says he would like to find ways to increase private support from the $4M to $6M it typically raises. "We have so many generous supporters right now, I'd like to expand on it and have more families involved. Even if it's at a more modest level it still all accumulates." (link)
The McNair trial ends in the favor of the NCAA as the jury determined the governing body did not defame the former USC FB AC. NCAA Chief Legal Officer Remy: "We hope that the decision will allow the NCAA, USC and Mr. McNair to move on." (link); Sports Illustrated legal expert McCann reviews, "Jurors, however, were not convinced that the NCAA necessarily came to the wrong conclusion. […] This reflects the high standard of defamation. McNair had to prove the NCAA either knowingly lied about him or exhibited reckless disregard for the veracity of accusations against him. A finding of reckless disregard normally involves evidence that the defendant felt real doubt about the accusations, but then consciously declined to investigate further. A defendant may have also exhibited defensive hostility in such a situation." Questions surround why the McNair legal team dropped its negligence claims. (link)
The SEC next week will vote on a measure that would lift restrictions on student-athletes who wish to transfer within the conference if their original school receives a postseason ban. The measure, which is being co-sponsored by Florida and Texas A&M, would also withhold postseason league and NCAA revenue from schools who receive postseason bans in Football and Basketball. Currently, the SEC holds postseason revenue in escrow for programs who are barred from the postseason and returns a portion of the proceeds if the school goes five years without any major infractions. The measure would still require student-athletes who want to transfer and be eligible immediately to obtain a waiver from the NCAA. (link)
New Mexico's internal audit has found that FB student-athletes went out to get team massages totaling over $8,300, and although UNM paid for the massages, the audit found there was no proof they were for business purposes. In addition, the audit found misuse of courtesy cars, including an instance last year when an employee claimed more than 90% of 670 miles driven were for business purposes, which the audit concluded was not a reasonable number. Auditors also called into question the practice for taking parking fees at events, saying the money was not deposited in a timely manner. AD Nunez has indicated that the department is taking the audit seriously and will make the proper changes to ensure this doesn't happen again. (link)
Conference USA is negotiating with ESPN about "mostly digital" offerings, according to Commish MacLeod, who says the league is also negotiating an extension with beIn Sports for continued TV coverage. MacLeod: "With the way that viewers watch football and all sports these days, it's important to us to get on the different digital offerings but still have a balance of some traditional TV." CUSA announced a new five-year deal with CBS Sports Network in March, which sources tell the Virginian-Pilot has doubled rights fees from $200K to $400K per school. The network will broadcast 15 FB games and 17 MBB games in addition to the tournament quarterfinals. About half the games will be streamed exclusively through Facebook. (link)
Latest SBJ: Today could bring clarity from U.S. District Court Judge Wilken on a new date for the Alston case to be tried. The NCAA's push to move the ordeal back to "no earlier" than June of 2019 centers on the availability of notable lead attorney Wilkinson. (link); Rutgers is the latest add for Dyehard's expanding portfolio. (link); Former Cap Cities boss & entertainment mogul Eisner profiled as another Lifetime Achievement Award winner. Eisner's belief in ESPN's potential is a key part of the Worldwide Leader's growth story. Lots more. (link, link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
San Jose Mercury News columnist Wilner contends that if the NCAA MBB Tournament expands to 72 teams, as has been proposed by ACC Commish Swofford, the Pac-12 should push for Salt Lake City to "become the western version of Dayton as a permanent site for First Four games." To support his position, Wilner cites Salt Lake's central location for west coast and midwestern teams, local support for MBB and Vivint Arena's past success hosting tournament games. (link); Michigan FB HC Harbaugh has announced South Africa as next year's team trip destination: "We're going to Johannesburg and Cape Town, and we're going to do a safari. How about that? How about a safari?" (link); ESPN's Goodman has tweeted the destinations of several MBB foreign trips this summer, including Kentucky (Bahamas), Duke (Canada) and Penn (Italy). Full list. (link)

Arkansas sports management professor Dittmore frames why Communications staffers may find themselves at the center of sports gambling given their access to "production information" connected to the teams & student-athletes they cover. "The SCOTUS ruling guarantees that all information – entertainment and production – will become an even more valuable commodity in the gambling economy. Depending on how conferences and universities are able to monetize the Court’s decision, there may be little incentive for university athletic departments and their communications staff to be forthcoming with any information." Dittmore also asks if athletic departments could actually monetize inside information, "College sports fans have shown, time and again, a willingness to overpay for preferred access." More interesting angles explored. (link)
More SCOTUS-PASPA narrative:
+ One AD who's had a front row seat to legal sports gambling & its impact on his student-athlete population is Nevada's Knuth. Here's his perspective, thanks to a chat with Pac-12 Hotline's Wilner, "We know the casino owners, and they know our staff and our athletes. We talk to them all the time. They say, 'We saw your athletes in our restaurants and bars, but they aren’t in the books.' […] The reality is — and this has been an overlooked aspect of the story — is that sports gambling has been around for a long, long time, and (outside the Nevada state line) it wasn’t regulated. That’s changing, and it makes a big difference. It will only make it better and safer. (The books) have a huge interest in making sure the games are fair." Former Oregon State AD De Carolis also chimes in, "Now, the schools will have to ramp up their education piece … they’ll have to have eyes and ears to the ground. But I wouldn’t go into a panic about this." (link)
+ Colorado AD George: "...wait and see where the NCAA goes … and we’ll take what their lead is and follow it." Colorado State's Parker: "It’s a bit of a voyage that I don’t think anybody has a clear picture on what the destination is going to look like." (link)
+ The latest from NFL Commish Goodell: "1. There must be substantial consumer protections; 2. Sports leagues can protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it; 3. Fans will have access to official, reliable league data; and 4. Law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here and abroad." The NFL continues to push for a revenue stream from data & video, not an integrity fee. (link)
+ Another NFL source: "We want to put the illegal bookmakers out of business, and we want the legal bookmakers now to succeed." (link)
+ New York is moving very quickly. (link)
+ Stratechery's Thompson: "...don’t count out the aggregators, that is, those that control the consumers: Oath (thanks to Yahoo) and Disney (thanks to ESPN) could be the real winners if they seek to fully exploit their dominance of consumer attention when it comes to sports and gambling’s closest cousin, fantasy sports." (link)
The Athletic's Vannini doing what he does best, digging into the weeds & this time it's a thorough look at how FBS programs handled their new 10th AC spot. Forty-three hired from within, 21 recruited a staffer from another FBS program, 17 hired from a non-FBS and three from the high school ranks. Assignments in the defensive backfield led the way with 24 such roles, followed by special teams, tight ends, D-line & linebackers each with 13. A couple of individual stories also included. (link)
Front Office Sports digs in with Ohio State Asst. Director of Creative Media & Branding Silverman on his 'Brand U' programming in Columbus centered around educating student-athletes on the value of building the right personal brand on digital. Silverman: "When I started working for OSU full-time I was close with Braxton Miller. One of my friends wanted a personalized logo. Something that represented him and what he wanted to accomplish. It was the relationship with him that sparked it all. [...] After I’d been giving these presentations and seeing the overwhelmingly positive results we were getting from the recruits and their families about them, it really made me think about how this could be something that makes us stand out. All big-time football programs nowadays have great facilities, great fanbases, and great stadiums. This was something really unique and really different from what they (players) were used to seeing." More. (link)
It's Personnel: Outgoing Boise State Prez Kustra points to Compliance issues for the reason why former AD Bleymaier was replaced a handful of years ago. Also thinks Boise & San Diego State could be the first two added to the Pac-12 if another round of conference realignment takes place in the early '20s. Wants to have a public announcement on a new Baseball facility by the time he exits at the end of June. (link); UConn Prez Herbst announces she'll step down Summer of 2019. (link); Auburn MBB HC Pearl continues to believe the AU administration wants him on The Plains for a long time. (link); The removal of Tennessee Chancellor Davenport makes it more likely former UT AD Currie will get another gig, according to Knox News' Adams. The story that never dies. (link); Middle Tennessee State AD Massaro will hire a new Baseball HC. (link);'s Dodd is the latest to dive in on Arizona State FB HC Edwards. (link); No more Larry Culpepper for Dr. Pepper's activation around college FB. (link); ESPN's Rovell: "Lou Holtz has settled his defamation lawsuit against The Daily Beast for wrongly saying that Holtz said that all immigrants were 'deadbeats' at the Republican National Convention. Settlement is confidential." (link)
TV Notes: $1B over five years by (new) Fox for WWE's Smackdown with a move to Friday nights. Those are the details being reported as another live "sports" property is about to do a massive new rights deal. (New) Fox is clearly going to be centered on live sports & news. (link); TV By The Numbers on the evolution of broadcast networks, "The networks are part of larger entities. They own more of their content. They have more platforms on which to monetize their programs. They receive revenue in ways unheard of even 20 years ago (retrans). They monetize the linear part of the business over days beyond the initial telecast, and they still amass large audience for live sports and other event programming. This doesn’t look like a group of people who are avoiding the realities of the business. They understand their place in the content ecosystem and operate accordingly." (link); The NBA Conference Finals have been full of non-competitive games, but TV ratings continue to surge. (link); Speaking of (new) Fox, Comcast still looms as a major disruptor to the Disney deal. (link)
Another Q&A for Virginia Tech AD Babcock. Of note, still no exact number on what to expect for ACC Network linear distribution, unlikely the Hokies will spend all of the $10M allocated for new broadcast & production studios, clearly would like the linear effort to "close the gap" on the revenues disturbed by the SEC & Big Ten. On ACC MBB HCs pushing for a 72-team NCAA Tourney, "I don’t know if I’ve put enough thought into it to have a stance on that yet. So I thought it was creative by our coaches, but there’s a long way to go before that becomes a reality. But it was interesting and we’ll learn about it." More, including thoughts on sports gambling, FB scheduling & handling personnel issues. (link)
As the search moves forward for Stephen F. Austin's new Athletic Director, Sr. Assoc. AD for External Branch has removed his name from consideration to replace former AD Hill. Per the SFA Sawmill: "The move does come as a minor surprise to those who have closely followed the department over the past years. Branch's experience and relationship with university president Dr. Baker Patillo were all factors that made his promotion appear nearly inevitable. As it stands, however, interviews are being conducted and it is likely the next athletic director at SFA will come from the outside." Eastman & Beaudine continues to help the Lumberjacks with its search. (link)
Alabama AD Byrne voiced as much last week & here's Texas boss Del Conte doing the same on the future of FB scheduling, "The future of college football is going to be big, premier matchups. That's what you are going to see more and more of. That's what draws fans. It's what drives ratings." Del Conte's Longhorns also notified UT fans recently that the only assured way of getting tix to this year's matchup with USC in Austin is to buy season tickets. The Star-Telegram's Engle looks back on Del Conte's run at TCU & track record of scheduling high-profile games to excite his fanbase. (link)
The Palm Beach Post continues its dissection on Florida schools violating Title IX policies, this time pointing to Miami, UCF, USF and FAU all "disproportionately award[ing] athletic scholarship money to male athletes." Further, participation opportunities for women at Florida show an 11%-gap, a notch above the 10% "red flag" generating mark according to the National Women's Law Center. Helpful graphs included to show the percentages of females enrolled at the school, female student-athletes and scholarship dollars for females. The PBP supports it's claim that schools "overstuff the rosters of women's teams to meet participation requirements" by pointing out that Florida reported a 40-person women's soccer team, USF a 43-person women's sailing team and UCF a 77-person women's rowing team. A bit more. (link)
Kennesaw State signs on with Van Wagner Sports and Entertainment for a "long-term" partnership. AD Overton: "As we continue to grow our brand, we are excited to add the experience of Van Wagner to allow us to execute our long term fiscal sustainability strategy. We look forward to building a relationship that engages our corporate partners, community and alumni for years to come." (link); Cincinnati extends with IMG through 2027. AD Bohn: "Fueling our intensity of interest through the long-standing relationship with IMG is a critical partnership that allows us to boast of a bright future. Together, we will continue to make major improvements in our gameday experience for our dedicated fans, which includes new state of the art digital signage and sponsorship activation with treasured local, regional and national sponsors." The Bearcats started with IMG College in 2009 and IMG College Licensing in 1992. (link)
Also Noticed: The NCAA has launched the Division I and Division II Diploma Dashboards that not only allow users to compare undergraduate degrees earned by student-athletes to those earned by the general student body, but also to "dissect data to compare contingents of student-athletes based on year of graduation, gender, race and, in some cases, sport." (link); The NBA G League will add housing and insurance benefits and increase base salaries for players under contract next season from $26K or $19K to $35K. (link); Nebraska Football will play Minnesota on Black Friday in 2020 in Minneapolis and in 2021 in Lincoln. Per AD Moos: "And then we go to the Iowa series from then on out." (link); Alabama denies Football student-athlete Kennedy's initial appeal to transfer to another SEC program as a graduate transfer. Kennedy is attempting to join either Auburn or Tennessee's squads. (link); North Dakota State picks up its second straight Summit League Commissioner's Cup Trophy as well as the school's first-ever Dr. William Steinbrecher Men's All-Sports Award. (link); Olympic Swimmer Kukors Smith has filed a lawsuit against USA Swimming and several other entities, alleging they covered up their knowledge of sexual abuse she suffered under her former coach Hutchison. (link)
Harvard Business School professor & behavioral scientist Gino: Why It’s So Hard to Speak Up Against a Toxic Culture. Conclusion: "...silence is pervasive in organizations due to the widely shared belief that speaking up about sensitive issues is futile or even dangerous. Consequently, organizations need to convey to employees that they will be protected and valued if they share suggestions, opinions, and concerns — and that those who harmed them will face serious consequences. By doing so, leaders can encourage those who are being mistreated to find their voice." (link)
