Former Michigan State AD Hollis is now working as a sports and entertainment consultant for MSU alum and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert's businesses. According to a Quicken Loans spokesperson, Hollis' "decades of experience and skill creating numerous unique and innovative events will help elevate Detroit's and our brand's joint mission to attract national exposure and positive impact. Mark is the perfect fit to help us continue to raise the national awareness of the many opportunities and the diverse, highly-skilled talent found in Detroit's new era of growth and optimism." Gilbert recently donated $15M to MSU for renovations to the Breslin Center and the establishment of a scholarship fund. (link)
Illinois AD Whitman is "increasingly confident" making a $50M-$60M ice hockey arena is a reality after pointing to a number of multi-million dollar gifts in the pipe. The Illini boss indicates starting men's & women's programs would take two to three years from saying "go." Such a facility would also include new digs for Men's & Women's Gymnastics, Wrestling & Volleyball. Overall, "We think that a wholesale solution, a new building, is the right answer. Generating the resources to build a new building for those sports is very, very challenging. We think that using hockey to drive that plan is the right answer. That allows us to create a new solution for those sports that I think otherwise would be very hard to come by." And on additional projects for other sport programs, "We want to make sure we’re identifying donors and different revenue opportunities that are unique to different projects that allow us to walk parallel paths and allow us to get different projects off the ground and get them completed at different points in times while others are happening." (link)
The OVC last week wrapped up its first spring meetings under a reorganized governance structure designed to increase collaboration and engagement among conference members. The new structure is comprised of four main cabinets focused on student-athlete experience and academics; competition; championships; and governance and administration. During the meetings, the OVC Board of Presidents' Working Group developed a distribution model to allot a portion of revenue to schools based on student-athletes' academic performance, pursuant to a recent NCAA measure. The model will seek to acknowledge the success of qualifying schools while focusing attention to the provision of academic services throughout the league. In addition, the board eliminated a provision that prohibited intra-conference transfer students who did not have permission to transfer from receiving athletically related aid during his or her first year of residency. Along with the Council of Directors of Athletics, the board also agreed to expand on the existing "sportsmanship statement" by including the parents of student-athletes in leadership roles alongside administrators and coaches. Full roundup. (link)
Among the topics addressed at SEC spring meetings in Destin last week was not the issue of a bylaw that requires conference presidents and/or chancellors to consult with Commish Sankey before signing off on athletic hires who have "engaged in unethical conduct as defined under NCAA bylaws or who [have] participated in activity that resulted, or may result, in a Level I, Level II or major infraction." The year-old bylaw was the subject of focus earlier this year when Sankey expressed dubiousness over the wisdom of Alabama's potential hiring of former Ole Miss FB HC Freeze. Despite the attention it received then, Sankey said the topic never came up, adding: "I think people understand the expectation. Feedback through the year has been appropriate. Our schools have met those expectations." Vanderbilt AD Williams echoes Sankey's sentiment, noting: "My gut reaction is with the standards we use, if they said there was something in there, we probably wouldn't be hiring the person. But I think it's been very helpful for us and good for the league." (link)
Sun Belt Commish Benson discussed the league's recent decision to institute a new strategic scheduling model for MBB beginning in 2019, saying right now there are "seven conferences that are not only getting the vast majority of at-large bids," but also getting better seeding. "The No. 9, 10, 11 or 12 seeds that we used to be getting. We’re tired of having our champion getting a lack of respect and getting No. 14 or 15 seeds. That’s what we’re trying to overcome." Benson also indicated a preference for forming an alliance with Conference USA, which announced a similar scheduling model. " When you look at the footprint of Conference USA and the Sun Belt, and the history between the two conferences, those matchups would make a lot of sense geographically and from a rivalry standpoint." The primary goal, Benson, adds, is to hopefully get a second team into the NCAA Tournament; however, if that doesn't happen, Benson says the next most important goal is to improve seeding to help a team move forward. "And our ultimate goal, obviously, is to have a team get to the Final Four. This model has the ingredients to enhance our chances to do that." (link)
Mercury News columnist Wilner expands on the turnover among Pac-12 presidents and chancellors in recent years, noting that with USC's parting of ways with Prez Nikias, the group which approved the hire of Commish Scott in 2009 is now down to UCLA Chancellor Block, Arizona State Prez Crow and Oregon State Prez Ray. Taken a step further, the group that approved Scott's decision to retain 100% of Pac-12 Networks ownership includes just the four aforementioned campus leaders and Colorado Chancellor DiStefano. Wilner points out that since Scott's spring 2009 hire date, the conference has hired more presidents and chancellors (28) than it has MBB coaches (22) and brings up the potentially relevant piece of information that the majority of current campus leaders were not part of the group that hired Scott or approved the Pac-12 Networks strategy. Wilner: "[The new presidents and chancellors] come into power not during a period of bliss but with frustration swirling … with fellow presidents and several athletic directors making less-than-flattering comments about the financial state of the conference." (link)
Kansas MBB HC Self tells The Athletic columnist Davis that the Rice Commission report met his expectations despite the criticism it has drawn from some. Self notes that from the outside, change seems easy to affect, but when viewed from within, things look different. "There’s so much thought that goes into certain things that maybe the lay person doesn’t understand. You’re seeing it from a public perspective, you’re seeing it from a university perspective, you’re seeing it from a PR perspective. Most of all, the way we should see it is what’s best for the student athletes’ perspective. It’s not an easy thing." Still, Self posits that if student-athletes are determined to be eligible for disability insurance, "if you can do that based on your potential future, your potential earnings, then why couldn’t a family take a loan out based on your future potential ability or earnings? That’s something that I’ve always thought would be a good idea." Regarding the recent FBI probe, Self says he hopes something can good can come from this despite all the negative press. "I don't know that anybody wants to be in a position where you can't control the narrative."(link)
Kentucky Sports Radio's Torres met with several MBB recruits during this weekend's Pangos All-American Camp to discuss a potential change to the one-and-done rule. Virtually all of the players in the class of 2020 (currently rising juniors) knew of the potential rule change, according to Torres, who also says "virtually all would consider a jump to the professional ranks if offered the opportunity." Moreover, some of the players are actively preparing for the eventuality. HS prospect Beauchamp, who is ranked 19th in 247's class of 2020: "Yeah, my dad talked to me about it. We discussed [how] I need to step it up more, get stronger, because that rule could be gone by my senior year." Torres also dismisses the notion that only the "elite" prospects will consider skipping college as "laughable," writing: "The landscape of the sport has changed so much just in the past few years, with players more focused on getting to the pro ranks, rather than being prepared once they get there." Still, Torres is quick to note that none of the players said they'd definitely make the jump, only that it's "clearly on their minds and is seriously being taken under consideration." (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
From Tallahassee, FL to Anchorage, AK is more than 4,500 miles by car (can you name the state from which Google Maps suggests the driver to cross over into Canada?). Such a trek is on the horizon for new Alaska Anchorage AD Myford, who takes over the reigns of the Seawolves after a number of years with IMG College, most recently running the property at Florida State. Myford will officially get started on July 31, "I understand the vital nature of our work, as our staff and coaches are charged with producing graduates who earn meaningful degrees and return to serve their communities as productive, honorable citizens." (link)

UConn AD Benedict & his team are out & about around the Nutmeg State, "If we're going to grow our base of support, we can't just stay up in our Storrs offices. We have to get out to the people and visit communities. It’s absolutely fundamental and critical to our plan … because we're not filling up our venues all the time. Just like our coaches get out and recruit student-athletes, we have to get out and recruit fans." Benedict notes a good handle on expenses, but putting fans in stands is crucial to drive revenue numbers north. Looks like Benedict is also in the process of working on a new deal with IMG. (link)
The Athens Banner-Herald's Weiszer reports Georgia spent $60,500 with Collegiate Sports Associates during the process that led to the hire of new MBB HC Crean. That's up from $42,175 to CarrSports Consulting for its work during the appointment of FB HC Smart two years back. The Bulldogs also doled out $7,500 to Terry Pettit Coaching for assistance with a VB HC search in late 2016. Weiszer also indicates UGA used CSA for the hire of new Deputy AD for Administration Griffin, but no investment amount is noted. (link)
Buffalo's $30M fundraising push by 2020 is now over the $18M mark as the Murchie Family Fieldhouse continues toward completion next Spring. UB Deputy AD Gross: "These enhancements to our facilities infrastructure serve as tributes not only to the growth of our program but also the commitment to excellence shown by many of our generous supporters. We've made great strides over the last five years because of the exemplary support shown by so many, but we're just getting started. The Boldly Buffalo Campaign, and the resources we generate, will certainly serve as a critical catalyst for even greater things to come." (link)
AthleticDirectorU dives in on another Experts' Roundtable as usage trends & potential product changes for Instagram could impact social media strategies around the nation. Leaders from Georgia, Temple, Arkansas, Oregon State, Clemson, Kentucky & others chime in. Georgia Assoc. Director of Digital Services/Social Media Galas: "I view Instagram and Instagram Stories as two separate platforms. I use Instagram as place to place ever-green content. Content that can be viewed over and over and at different times throughout the week, month or even year. It’s almost for moments in time that need to be captured and saved. Instagram Stories on the other hand is more of a place for real-time information like quick hits, snippets of time that should be seen but doesn’t necessarily need to be saved for posterity." Temple Asst. AD for Digital Media Siegfried on the potential for long-form video on the platform, "If you are going to make a long form video you better make it good, because regardless of the platform it boils down to how well you can keep a viewer’s attention." Lots more. (link)
Nebraska FAR Potuto chats with 1.Question co-host @TaiMBrown, touches on potential ramifications of coming changes to student-athlete transfer rules & regulations, while maintaining academic integrity in the process. Potuto: "If we're only concerned about students as students, we wouldn't put a major competition in March, which is right in the middle of an academic semester. […] The way you get the best answer for what's best for Student-Athletes is when people on either side of an argument are pushing and asking questions trying to find the right place. […] The FAR should be informed and active in vetting potential compliance issues as, or before, they arise." (link)

Welp, it looks like click bait has officially come to the world of AD searches. Kansas's Rivals outlet has a picture of former Florida AD Foley leading its entry, "Changes to the list of candidates to watch." In the preview of the article, "Not long ago Jeremy Foley was considered one of the best, if not the best AD in the country. Two years ago Foley stepped down as the athletic director with the Gators. Some believe he would go back to work if the right job and right fit came open." Sorry, I didn't pay for access to read the rest. (link)
New Cal boss Knowlton pods with Bear Insider, says the Title IX transition to prong one will be tough, but cutting sport programs is the absolute last option. Points to the important role FAR Jacobsen will play in bridging the gap with campus constituencies "to help open conversations." Knowlton also thinks the key to cultivating younger fans & donors is being visible in the community, transparent & to tell a good story about the brand. So far, the engagement he's been a part of has been "fabulous." (link)
Eastern Washington’s student newspaper profiles new AD Hickey, reporting that she will continue to fill coaching and administrative vacancies throughout the summer and focus on reviewing how people interact with EWU athletics, including fans, donors, and students. Hickey: "We just want to have everything laid out, everything comfortable. And then this first year we’ll really take time to review how things go and see if there are some new initiatives that we want to put in place, but I need to see a season. I’ve heard great things about how people like to come in and tailgate and I just need to kind of view it before we make any major, drastic changes." Another big key for Hickey will be listening to the EWU community: "I invite people to contact me and I would rather have a lot of calls and a lot of conversations. I don’t want apathy. We don’t need apathy. We need to really get engaged and communicate with each other. And even if there’s some tough discussions and some tough decisions to make — we want to hit those head on." (link)
Hazing among the Air Force Men's LAX squad has led some senior cadet-athletes who were involved to not be allowed to graduate with their peers, "while the academy evaluates whether they should be allowed to receive their commissions as officers in the Air Force." Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Silveria on the same issues within the Men's Swimming program, "I actually stopped some of those swimmers in the middle of a swim meet, and took them away from the swim meet, because that’s what our values represent. It’s a privilege to wear Air Force on your jersey or your swim cap." Silveria also says he's close to appointing a firm to thoroughly review the department's culture & climate. Sounds like it's going to be a company that's done such work in college athletics before, not an investigative unit from within the AFA. More. (link)
Former Baylor FB student-athlete Ukwauchu sees his sexual assault conviction reinstated by Texas' highest criminal appeals court. Ukwauchu can continue his appeals, but no longer on the basis of text message communications with the victim, which were the center point of this iteration in the case. (link); "Public university systems with schools in the nation’s five major athletic conferences paid out more than $10.5 million in settlements related to sexual-harassment claims in 2016 and ’17, according to a Wall Street Journal review of recent settlements, gathered mainly through public-records requests." Important note: WSJ's Korn uses "in the nation's five major athletic conferences" as a descriptor. The 59 settlements reviewed from 22 universities did not all stem from athletic departments, but the overall institutions. (link)

We've all been stuck in one before: A dead end conversation where you can't seem to connect with the other party on an issue of conflict. Here are some solutions: 1) "Stuck listening to chronic complainers...ask them to suggest a solution"; 2) "If your conversation partner gets caught up in boasting or reciting a litany of achievements, consider trying to jar him out of his rut by complimenting him and volunteering some information about yourself"; or, 3) "If a conversation gets mired in a divisive issue, one exit route is to hold up a hand and announce, 'You know what? We’re not having this discussion right now' […] Be respectful but don’t smile, so participants will take you seriously." Overall, "When emotions run high, it’s often best to interrupt the pattern so everyone can calm down, then refocus on trying to understand each other’s views without judging them." (link)
