Menlo (NAIA) has begun applying for NCAA DII membership, with the Oaks exploring membership in the PacWest. AD Spataro: "Our top priority in all this is the health and welfare of our student-athletes. The senior leadership looked at the ever-changing landscape both within our current conference and college athletics as a whole. With this review it became clear that we needed to strategically align ourselves to more regional competition to decrease travel and missed class time, while also providing the best competitive environment for our entire community. We believe association with the NCAA and the PacWest checks all of those boxes." Should Menlo be accepted into the PacWest, an NCAA application would be submitted in February, with the Oaks to begin competition in 2024-25.

The Texas Woman's student body voted down a referendum that would have instituted TWU's first-ever Athletics Fee of $12 per credit hour, up to $180 per semester. The funds would have gone toward equipment, facility upgrades and potentially reducing student service fees. AD Mott: "Although I am disappointed that the Athletics Fee referendum did not pass, I am forever blessed by the opportunities I had this fall semester to meet with students, faculty and staff to discuss the growth of Pioneer Athletics and the value we bring to Texas Woman's University. I am grateful for the work of our coaches, staff and, especially, our student-athletes to engage our student body in the process this fall. All of us in Athletics take great pride take great pride in representing this fantastic University and we will continue to honor TWU through our efforts in the classroom, in competition and in the community. We still have challenges and we are committed to finding solutions." (link, link)

The North Coast Journal dives into sexual assault allegations made by former Cal Poly Humboldt WBB S-A Clifton against the husband of Humboldt WBB HC Bento-Jackson. Clifton reports feeling supported by AD Jones, along with frustration over how long the Title IX investigation has taken. She did not feel comfortable returning to campus, in part due to public comments made by Humboldt Prez Jackson about Title IX, and is now at Academy of Art. Bento-Jackson insinuates Clifton is retaliating against her for suggesting a reduction in aid would likely be coming and recruits at her position were going to be brought in. The University Police Department recommended a misdemeanor sexual battery charge, which the district attorney's office declined to pursue. (link)

D1.ticker/Extra Points Brown is joined by Degree Insurance CEO Eyerly, former Southern Utah AD Corum and Weber State MBB student-athlete Jones to discuss "How Insurance Can Help Athletic Departments Recruit and Retain Student-Athletes." Jones, who has an NIL deal with Degree Insurance, explains what he was looking for in an NIL partner, but also why degree insurance is a valuable resource for student-athletes. Corum on what this could mean for an AD or school president: "I was sitting in a president's cabinet meeting when we heard [Degree Insurance's] presentation, when NIL was beginning.... and the early stages of the transfer portal. My brain immediately went to 'is this a tool for athletic administrators and universities to retain athletes to their school?' ... and I started talking to some athletes and found out that my intuition was correct."

Gee v NCAA updates from Law360: "A former NCAA medical committee member who is currently UCLA's football team physician defended the NCAA's decision not to create rules limiting concussed athletes from playing, testifying Thursday in a California jury trial over a college linebacker's death that the science on concussions isn't 'sound' and that warning players about concussions would unnecessarily worry them. ..." Meanwhile, NFL Senior Advisor/CTE expert Cantu notes: "There still needs to be way more education for the athlete. They have to know what the [concussion] symptoms are so they can recognize them." He added that improper playing techniques are a "huge problem to this day." As part of his testimony, Cantu held that CTE was, in fact, a major cause of the health problems that led to Gee’s death.
