New Mexico: Lobos administrators will present to the Board of Regents today with a proposal to cut Men's Soccer, Men's and Women's Skiing and Women's Beach Volleyball. Combined these sports have 66 student-athletes and none of the four compete in the Mountain West. Also, the rosters for Men's XC/T&F and Women's Swimming & Diving will be "significantly tweaked." AD Nuñez emphasizes the school will "work with every one of these student athletes to help them in whatever avenue they choose." (link); Nuñez pens a letter to all Lobos student-athletes, in part, "My team and I spent months collecting data, analyzing options and engaging with campus and community leaders on potential solutions that would not involve discontinuing any sports.  The recommendations in this plan took into consideration the athletics department’s significant financial challenges, the requirement to comply with federal Title IX laws regarding gender equity, and our desire to become more aligned with the Mountain West Conference." UNM will honor current scholarships through graduation and will allow, pending NCAA rules, immediate eligibility if someone transfers. (link); Full analytics and review of the process here. (link)
ACC Media Days:
+ Commish Swofford indicates there's serious discussion about starting the 2019-20 MBB slate with a run of conference games, which could be an "exciting" way to launch the new ACC Network linear play. Swoffod: "If we could arrange it where almost every school played, that would be a heck of a way to start the basketball season. It would have a tremendous pop to it." Swofford points directly to the linear network as a way to close the revenue gap with other 'Power 5' leagues, though he also puts the onus on member institutions to produce more from ticket sales, donations & other revenue streams, "Conference distributions are important, there’s no question about that, but that’s not the end-all, be-all." (link)
+ North Carolina FB HC Fedora leaped into the headlines early yesterday with comments connected to the potential downfall of our nation if the importance of FB declines & being unsure about FB causing CTE. Later in the day Fedora tried to walk his comments back. (link, link); Tar Heels AD Cunningham says he was "surprised" at Fedora's remarks. (link); UNC Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences & founding director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center Guskiewicz says he's never met a coach more concerned about the health & safety of his student-athletes than Fedora. Further, thinks Fedora was trying to make the point that there are still a lot of unknowns around CTE. (link); UNC also in the news for FB student-athletes who sold team gear, which qualifies as a secondary violation. (link)
+ More from Swofford: Thinks all of the Rice Commission recommendations will go into action. (link); While he might not understand all the lingo or the optics of sports gambling, Swofford notes the importance of appropriately policing the situation. (link); Finally, Swofford called the lawsuit by former Louisville MBB student-athletes against the NCAA "interesting [...] I've never seen that before, so it is certainly creative. And I do understand players that had nothing to do with the problem being negatively impacted by association. I get that. I don't know if the lawsuit is the solution to that." (link)
+ Here's the new ACC Network logo. (link)
SEC Media Days:
+ Yahoo's Forde argues Alabama has figured out the scheduling game. Latest thoughts from Saban on the topic, "Neutral-site games really launched our program in Alabama when we first came there years ago. But I think philosophically we’re sort of changing our thoughts on that and our future scheduling and trying to get more home-and-homes, which leads me to talk about what we need to do scheduling-wise. I’ve always been an advocate of playing all Power Five schools. I think we need to get – have more really, really good games on TV for the players. We can’t have fans who pay a lot of money for tickets and boxes and loges who support our programs to pay for games that no one is interested in watching." Saban also says he's in favor of nine league games. (link); On the same tip, sounds like LSU has been trying to land deals with Clemson & Florida State for gridiron matchups. (link)
+ Former Georgia standout Murray said earlier in the week he didn't think new Tennessee HC Pruitt would be successful given how he treated players in Athens. Pruitt's response, "Fifteen years ago I was a kindergarten teacher and now I'm the head coach at Tennessee. You probably don't make that ascension without knowing how to treat people." (link)
+ The Athletic's Sammon was at the side of new Mississippi State HC Moorhead during his first trip to Media Days. Covers the event for Moorhead from the night before, through the full day in the spotlight. (link)
New permanent Michigan State AD Beekman's deal is worth $750K annually with another $100K possible via incentives tied to compliance, academic & revenue goals. Beekman previously made $258K in his role as the university's VP & Secretary. Another point of comparison: Former Spartans AD Hollis received a base of $759K in his final year, plus $220K in supplemental compensation & $50K in bonuses. Notable from Interim Prez Engler during Beekman's presser earlier in the week, "We ended up not needing to do a national search." (link, link)
USA Today's Berkowitz sources 2016 calendar year pay at Northwestern. Wildcats AD Phillips earned $1.8M in total ($900K base, $700K loan balance, $230K bonus, $210K in deferred comp). FB boss Fitzgerald credit with $3.6M, including a base of $3.04M & bonuses of $307K. (link)
College Football Playoff Executive Director Hancock played his record on repeat again, "There is no talk about expansion among the university presidents and the commissioners. They are quite happy with the four-team playoff." More: "The CFP works. It works well. (Limiting it to) four teams keeps the focus on this wonderful regular season, the most meaningful and compelling in all of sports. Four lets us keep the bowl experience for thousands of student-athletes. Four keeps college football within the framework of higher education. [...] It has been a very good game, good year, good four years, for this game that we love so much." (link)
UCF stacked up $13.4M in cash & gifts during 2017-18, which was a record for the Knights. More specifically, it's $2.5M more than the 2016-17 haul & up like a hockey stick from 2011-12's $5.2M. AD White: "With our goal of providing our student-athletes with a championship-level experience, we need to provide championship-level resources. The re-branding of our development department (UCF Athletics Championship Resources) more closely aligns us with our mission, vision and goals from our Strategic Plan, while also clearly defining what that unit's goal is. That group has done an outstanding job of developing relationships with our wonderful donors, alumni, fans and friends." (link)
Louisville AD Tyra says they'll be a time & place to talk to Papa John's founder & former CEO Schnatter about how to work through his FB stadium naming rights that technically run through 2040. Tyra: "My read on it is he’s got the rights. […] At some point, we’ll have a conversation. I don’t expect it to be an acrimonious one. But we’ll have a conversation about it." Legal expert Simon doesn't see much value for Schnatter in the current language, though he does note some muddy waters since $14M has already been contributed to U of L for the rights. (link); Charlotte could be another institution where we see a name taken off a FB stadium as the exit of Carolina Panthers founder & former owner Richardson is under review by the university. No timetable for a decision. Richardson still owes $4M of the $10M committed. No morals clause in the contract. (link)

Former Baylor FB DC Bennett says he "never, never, never" tried to suppress or hide any information related to the sexual assault developments at Baylor. Further, "Never. If I had heard about it, trust me ... no. My integrity, and I could say this when I was 29, my integrity was more important than any job I ever had." Lots here, including Bennett saying former Bears AD McCaw continued to encourage all involved to stick to due process, his belief that former HC Briles deserves to coach again & "If we had had (Title IX coordinator) Patty Crawford (who was hired in November ‘14) in place, this all would have been out of our hands and they would have handled it. Art would have survived. We all would have survived. I go back to Sam’s deal; the sensationalism and the lies that he played. He never played. He never set foot in the weight room or the locker room. I’ve said this from the get-go: This was a systematic problem. Baylor never wanted Title IX in the first place." Calls the Pepper Hamilton interview process "a fraud set-up from the get go." Another: "The thing that bothered me the most was the sensationalism to all of it. The lies. The reports and headlines of ‘52 rapes’ and ‘Rape Culture.’ None of that was true." More in this eye-opening interview from Star-Telegram's Engel. (link); Attorneys representing a Jane Doe defendant are pushing for more information behind the 'Finding of Facts' document released by Baylor in May of 2016 stemming from Pepper Hamilton's work. (link)
Clemson DC Venables gets a contract extension worth $11.6M for five years, the largest known contract for a college FB AC. A $2M annual salary with a $200K annual retention bonus the first two years and a $400K one each of the final three years. LSU DC Aranda will make more annually ($2.5M), but his deal is only four years at $10M. No buyout if Venables gets a HC gig, but he must pay 25% of the remaining total if he takes an AC position elsewhere. (link)
Here's an interesting nugget from The Athletic's Vannini: "Skip Holtz tells me LA Tech probably won't have a 10th assistant this season, due to budgeting. The only FBS program that won't have one. (Air Force has yet to announce a 14th)." (link)
The Athletic's O'Neil "tagged along" with the Villanova MBB staff during Peach Jam to get a better sense of what the Wildcats look for on the recruiting trail. VU ACs Neptune & Halcovage: "We want guys who want to be pushed, who aren’t afraid to work hard, and who recognize they are part of something bigger than themselves." Again, Neptune: "The hardest thing to pick up on is, do they understand how hard they have to work? There’s no way they know what they’re in for. I don’t care how good you were in high school, or how tough you thought your coach was, it’s nothing like what you go through in college. If a guy gets his butt kicked one day, will he come back mentally tough the next day? Or what if he gets his butt kicked for two weeks, which isn’t unusual, will he stay focused or will he get down on himself? That’s stuff you can’t know, and if it goes bad, it can be really bad."

More on the situation with Ohio Representative/former Ohio State Wrestling AC Jordan and his involvement in the lawsuit filed this week by five former Buckeyes wrestling student-athletes against the school for failure to protect them from former team physician Strauss. One of their lawyers: "Anyone who would have been in the chain of command, [or an authority figure in the university’s athletic program is] certainly someone we’ll be interested in deposing." Another attorney indicates his focus is more on the university's failure to protect its students, but "we'll find out who knew what." (link)
Remove "just" from your vocabulary. That's according to Toronto-based leadership communications firm founder Humphrey. Examples: "That's just my opinion," carries dead weight. "If I could just add something," makes it seem like you're simply riding on someone else's ideas. "I just mean," in a debate setting "can make you sound weak and defensive." "I'm just the..." downplays your importance in a decision or process. Humphrey: " tuning into how you use that word and eliminating it from the phrases that lesson your credibility, confidence, and impact, you’ll begin coming across as the strong, confident leader you probably already are." (link)

South Dakota AD Herbster unveils a new strategic plan in Vermillion that "redefines and prioritizes goals to achieve its vision and mission," dubbed "We Are South Dakota." USD consulted with CarrSports and several key groups on campus to identify seven themes: Academic Success & Student-Athlete Development, Student-Athlete Well-Being & Performance, Championship Culture, Inclusion, Equity & Respect, Financial Resources, Athletic Facilities, and Collaboration. Herbster, in light of the three national championships, WNIT championship and 22 Summit League titles in the Coyote's first decade in Division I: "These extraordinary achievements have only heightened our expectations.

It is our responsibility to maintain this momentum and the plan is in place to do just that." (article - link; full plan - link)
Cincinnati AD Bohn took the media on a tour of Fifth Third Arena where renovations are nearing completion on time and on budget. Bohn: "We're thrilled with the progress of the arena. ... From Day 1, the vision on this arena was to make the fan experience a premier experience. ... We're going to have a lot of opportunities to inform our fans, entertain our fans and salute our fans, and obviously provide a great stage for our team to be able to perform."

Watch: LEAD1 boss McMillen chimes in on the AT&T-Time Warner merger & the future for Fox Sports' Regional Networks via his weekly 'Byte of the Week.' McMillen believes the moves "could have considerable implications for college sports. These deals will enhance streaming products as well as reduce the number of distribution channels, which reduces the number of potential bidders for media rights." No matter your opinion, the topic is super important to watch over the decade. (link)
Arkansas sports management professor Dittmore takes a hard look at the burgeoning eSports scene, asks if we're seeing the tipping point. Key takeaways: "With professional sports leagues embracing eSports, can growth at the intercollegiate level really be far behind? […] The potential positive impacts of eSports are in the form of revenue generation, Title IX compliance through near infinite participation opportunities (despite the low number of females participating in eSports), and increased diversity. […]  With revenue projections approaching 10 digits, it is no wonder eSports is grabbing the attention of organizations such as the International Olympic Committee and the NCAA which are seeking ways to get in on the fun." (link)
Tailgate Guys picks up another campus partner in Florida State, where the premium tailgate and event services provider will begin work at Doak Campbell Stadium this fall.
