USA Today's Berkowitz reports the NCAA's witness list for the Alston case challenging compensation limits includes several notable leaders in athletics and academia. The list includes Wisconsin Chancellor Blank, Wake Forest Prez Hatch, SEC Commish Sankey, Pac-12 Commish Scott, Ohio State AD Smith, Atlantic 10 Commish McGlade, America East Commish Huchthausen and AAC Commish Aresco. Blank is expected to testify about the "value of amateurism and the academic integration of student-athletes" as well as factors colleges consider when deciding whether to be members of DI conferences. Aresco, a former TV exec, is expected to testify about "differences between professional sports and NCAA collegiate sports in terms of how broadcasters package their coverage of those games and how players and fans react to the competition." Several former student-athletes will take the stand for the plaintiffs to testify about the "impact that team requirements and actions had on" their "academic and campus integration, along with the impact on the integration of others" they may have observed. (link)

University Prez Davies: "I want to thank Allen for his outstanding leadership of our athletics program. He has instilled in our student-athletes a desire to succeed in all aspects of life, but most importantly in the classroom." SWA Milkman will serve as the Racers interim AD. (link, link)
After two hours in executive session yesterday, the Idaho State Board of Education has yet to come to a decision on Idaho AD Spear, who was placed on administrative leave in April following concerns over the department's handling of sexual misconduct complaints. Board chief communications and legal affairs officer Keckler has indicated another meeting will "likely" be held next week. Meanwhile, Prez Staben said he has provided the board members with a recommendation, but the decision will ultimately lie with them. He added that "it's important to get this resolved." (link)
Maryland AD Evans will earn $720K annually before bonuses, according to the Washington Post, which reports that Evans' pay includes a salary of $600K and an additional $120K of supplemental income for media appearances, participation in apparel deals and promotional and fundraising appearances. UMD will receive all revenue generated by activities associated with the supplemental income. Evans can earn up to $45K per year in bonuses, including $7,500 for 5% increases in Terrapin Club membership and another $7,500 each year UMD donations increase by at least 5%. The contract also includes bonuses tied to the Learfield Directors' Cup results. Evans will earn $25K if UMD finishes in the top five, $15K if it finishes 6-10, $10K for 11-20 and $5K for 21-30. Finally, Evans will earn $5K each year at least 10 teams make NCAA-sanctioned postseason play. In the event Evans is terminated without cause before June 30, 2019, the school would owe him a $5M buyout. If he were terminated without cause after that date, he would collect his base salary for the remainder of the contract term, which is six years in total. (link)
Faced with her first crisis, Louisville Prez Bendapudi was up to the challenge, according to WDRB columnist Crawford, who writes that while removing the Papa John's name from Cardinal Stadium was a "pretty obvious call," at UL the "right call has at times been an elusive concept the past four years." Crawford also points out that no one at Louisville's press conference yesterday was actually sure whether UL could tear up the contract, which has 22 years remaining, but Bendapudi did it anyway because in doing so "we renew our community's commitment to speaking up when it matters, doing what is right, and coming together as one team," according to Bendapudi, who added that the school will not pursue another naming rights deal in the immediate future. "We understand that this comes with certain consequences and we have examined all of those, and this is our best decision to move forward." Meanwhile, removing all physical traces of the Papa John's brand is likely to take some time, Crawford points out, noting that "just finding all the logos and mentions will be a challenge." UL Sr. Assoc. AD/SID Klein adds: "It's just going to be a process, that's the best way I can put it." (link, link)
CBS's Norlander reports that several MBB HCs are concerned this month's Peach Jam may be the last they're allowed to attend pursuant to potential changes to the July recruiting period resulting, at least in part, from the Rice Commission report. Saint Joseph's HC Martelli, however, insists there has been "extreme overreaction," adding: "All the constituents have a say in how this is going to go. The fact that something was leaked and caused all this uproar is really unfortunate. It was not a step forward." Oklahoma AD Castiglione, who is heading the apparel companies working group to better understand shoe companies' influence on MBB, agrees with Martelli: "Our charge is to be, first and foremost, as open-minded as possible and to consider the best means to address the issues that are within our control. Some are obviously more complicated than others. ... We're trying to be as sensible and inclusive as possible." Both Martelli and Castiglione agree that shoe companies add a lot to college athletics, and Castiglione cautions against jumping to conclusions. "Even when some of the proposals get discussed openly or publicly or someone mentions an idea that is making its way through the system, I'm not troubled by that because if it gets discussion focused around the pros and cons of an idea, then maybe it provides additional feedback a working group might not get otherwise."

Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
The world of FB recruiting has certainly changed, as Yahoo's Thamel examines the practice of offering scholarships to prospective student-athletes as early as junior high. As a tactic once panned as "ridiculous," offering scholarships to young athletes is "trending toward normal," Thamel writes, citing, among others, top class of 2021 prospect Williams, who received 15 offers before the end of his freshman season. Meanwhile, prospect Murphy, who received his first offer from Colorado State and projects to be a top prospect in the class of 2022, says that was the goal, "to get an offer during eighth grade. All my friends did it, so I was like, 'I've got to get me one.'" For class of 2020 top prospect Uiagalelei, the first offer came in sixth grade, but for some coaches, especially those at academically elite universities, offering prospects that early isn't allowed due to admissions standards, which sits fine with Stanford HC Shaw: "I’m looking for talent like everyone else, but I’d like to see the young man play his junior year to truly evaluate his ability to be an effective QB at our level." (link)

Duke AD White has been named chair of the DI MBB Committee for 2019-20. White, who will serve as vice chair with Chair Stanford AD Muir for 2018-19: "It’s an incredible honor to serve on this committee, and to be selected to take a leadership role by my esteemed colleagues is quite humbling. While our primary charge is to be caretakers of the Division I men’s basketball tournament, there is a responsibility to be stewards of the sport of college basketball, and that’s a daily task we all take very seriously. I look forward to continue working with Bernard, the rest of the committee, Dan Gavitt and his great staff in the coming two years." Complete list of committee members for next year included. (link)
Asked yesterday whether change was a good thing following a spate of coaching changes during her tenure, Pittsburgh AD Lyke responded firmly and without hesitation: "When it's needed, yes." Pittsburgh Tribune-Review columnist DiPaola notes that, for one, "most of the coaches who have left since Lyke's arrival were not winning with enough regularity." Additionally, Lyke, citing a lackluster experience from a student-athlete, notes that while wins and losses are important, "having competitive success is part of the picture. ... Most importantly, it's about the student-athlete experience. When I see that the quality of the student-athlete experience isn't what it should or can be, then you start to wonder." (link); According to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist Zeise, Lyke and Chancellor Gallagher have Pitt on the right trajectory, especially when their performances are viewed within the context of the athletic program's recent inconsistency. Since arriving, Lyke is "asking coaches to work harder, recruit better, and to bring student-athletes into the university who will be a credit to the university," writes Zeise, who adds: "There is nothing Pitt can do to change its disastrous recent past... but the bottom line is Gallagher and Lyke seem to have the athletic department stable and on the right path."

Witt/Kieffer Sports Leadership Practice unit head Santore has transitioned to lead the U.S. Sports Practice at Odgers Berndtson, so we're getting a new search brand on the college athletics scene. Odgers Berndtson London-based Global Sports boss Cummins: "With its huge commercial sports industry and the vast number of athletically competitive institutions, the United States is a growth market for our practice. Greg's addition to the team is only the beginning." Head of Education Practice in the U.S. Brill: "In addition to his commercial sports expertise, Greg will have a big impact on our collegiate sports initiatives." (link)
A bevy of moves at Villanova with apparently more to come. Wildcats AD Jackson promotes longtime staffer Tighe to Sr. Assoc. AD/Chief Administrative Officer/SWA, Heird to Sr. Assoc. AD/COO, Rev. Hagan to Sr. Assoc. AD for Student-Athlete Welfare, Kenefick to Sr. Assoc. AD for Communications & fundraising boss Donnelly to Sr. Assoc. AD/Executive Director of the Villanova Athletic Fund.

More promotions & staff changes included in the release. (link)
TCU FB HC Patterson comments on a handful of rule changes, including the new student-athlete transfer framework, "What we’re teaching our kids to do is quit. I’m not starting. I’m not getting my playing time. Every freshman I’ve ever known wants to transfer because it’s harder than anything else he did in high school. As I tell people all the time, at your house you’re going to allow your 17-year-old, 18-year-old to run your household? Let them pay your bills, that’s what you do? No. You don’t do that. So why are we putting our jobs in jeopardy because of an 18-year-old? That’s stupid." Also interesting context to consider, "You know how many basketball kids transferred last year? 800. That’s with 13 scholarships. Can you imagine football teams with 85 scholarships, what the number of transfers is going to be?" More. (link)
More Personnel: Minnesota Prez Kaler announces the 2018-19 academic year will be his eighth and final with the Gophers. Kaler: "My tenure already exceeds the national average. This is an incredibly demanding job, essentially seven days a week, evenings and nights included, and as proud and confident of my contributions and ability as I am, I also know that the university will benefit from a fresh perspective." Notably, the 2016 average tenure length of a college presidency was 6.5 years. (link); Oregon AD Mullens & his senior team select Arizona Women's Golf AC Radley to take over the Ducks program.

This HBR compensation piece by University of Copenhagen professor Gensowski will raise your eyebrows, "I found that in early years, earnings were no different for men with strong personality traits. At around age 30, a gap emerged, as men who were more conscientious, extroverted, and less agreeable started earning more. These gains from conscientiousness and extraversion (between $10-20,000 annually) fully unfolded in the prime working years, between the ages of 40 and 60." Lifetime earnings of such males can mean $600K more than their peers when extrapolated out. Also, "I also found that more agreeable men, who tend to be friendly and helpful to others, have significantly lower earnings than less agreeable men. The man who is very agreeable (in the top 20%) will earn about $270,000 less over a lifetime than the average man." More. (link)

New Kansas boss Long says reigniting the Border War rivalry with Missouri is "not high on our priority list. As I walk in the door, there’s so much more to do. And I have to learn, from the Kansas perspective, the view of that rivalry." Long also says he's sure fans are talking about the rivalry on Twitter, but, "I haven’t had a chance to look at a whole lot of Twitter." (link)
Baylor has settled a Title IX lawsuit with a former VB student-athlete who alleged she was sexually assaulted by several FB student-athletes in 2012. According to a joint notice, the agreement will be finalized within 90 days. Baylor has a released a statement that reads, in part: "In reaching a legal settlement, we acknowledge the challenges this survivor has endured and realize it’s a small step in the healing process. Under new leadership, Baylor has taken significant actions in response to past reports of sexual violence within our campus community and implemented 105 improvements to our Title IX policy, processes and procedures. We remain steadfast in our commitment to properly respond to incidents of sexual assault, interpersonal violence and harassment.” Terms of the settlement will not be disclosed. (link)
From a Capital Gazette editorial, "We have every confidence that the Naval Academy Athletic Association will work its way through its current financial shortcomings. We just wish they would be a bit more transparent about it." Further, the media outlet questions the NAAA's ability to duck public records requests because of its exempt status & the fact it hasn't filed a 990 tax form since 2011. "We feel obligated to remind the leaders of this organization that they are spending taxpayers’ money — the academy contributes heavily to its budget — on a cherished public institution. The 990 form does not require the release of donors’ names or coaches’ salaries, only the broadest outlines of financial health." (link)
Neat oral history of how Utah joined the Pac-12. Thoughts from Pac-12 Commish Scott who says "the context for considering expansion was upcoming media negotiations" in 2011 are in line with those of former Utes Prez Young, who is currently the Texas A&M boss. Young: "The TV contracts were all coming up for renewal, and I knew that there was going to be a real reshuffling [in the conferences] if that was the case. At that point, I had my people do some work on the academic side. I knew we were good enough athletically. We were the first non-BCS conference to go to a BCS bowl. We were the first non BCS-conference school to go to two BCS bowls. We beat Alabama going away." Former Utes AD Hill reflects on inviting ADs from the league to town to see what the Utes could offer. Lots here, including the impact Texas had on that process. (link); Scott since the expansion that added Utah and Colorado: "They’ve been competitive. They’ve won championships, both schools have made the post season in key sports. Both programs are strong and on the rise. I think both programs have benefitted athletically in terms of the profile of the Pac-12. I think Utah probably even more so than Colorado, coming from the Mountain West to the Pac-12 meant a huge uplift in revenue, exposure and prestige. I think it’s worked very, very well for both of those schools, athletically and financially." More. (link)
"Mobile betting could increase total U.S. sports gambling revenue by $9 billion, to $16 billion total, if all 50 states adopted it," according to estimates from Eilers & Krejcik Gaming LLC. Online sports betting has been legal in Nevada since 2011 and represents nearly a third of all wagers in the state, but most other states, in the wake of the SCOTUS ruling in May have been hesitant to adopt the mobile option. New Jersey and West Virginia already allow provisions for mobile wagering, while Pennsylvania will eventually. William Hill U.S. boss Asher on the gambling scene in the states: "This will be the biggest legal sports betting market in the world, just based on population and the wealth of Americans. It’s just going to take time to develop, and it’s not going to happen overnight." (link)
