Maryland will release its findings on the passing of FB student-athlete McNair on September 21, according to Sports Illustrated, which reports the system's board of regents will meet in closed session to discuss the details before they are released to the public. A separate investigation into the program's culture is ongoing and has no deadline. (link); Meanwhile, the Chicago Tribune reports UMD Prez Loh posited to the separate commission that some of the allegations they would be investigating "probably occur in every football program," adding that the line demarcating abuse and aggression can be "imprecise." The commission reportedly interviewed FB HC Durkin on August 22 and is expected to speak with other prominent members of the athletic department, including AD Evans. While there is no formal deadline, Chancellor Caret last week said: "We're trying to get that all done this month, one way or another, so that all the facts we can gather are in front of the board and the campus and then decisions can be made about the future, both to protect student-athletes themselves but also to create the kind of environment we want." Asked about Loh's initial email, which also included instructions to interview a "sufficiently large sample of current players, their parents, athletics staff, and any other relevant stakeholders," UMD spokeswoman Lawson explained that Loh understands the demanding nature of athletics but wants to determine whether the current culture crosses the line from aggression to abuse. "President Loh has been clear that if such behavior did exist here, it will not be tolerated." (link)

Yesterday Illinois announced a $2.5M gift from real estate firm CA Ventures to support the Henry Dale and Betty Smith Football Center. UI, which set a fundraising goal of $30M for the center, now has $28.175M. CA Ventures was founded by UI alum Tom Scott, whose wife, Julie, serves on the executive committee of the board of the UI Gies College of Business. AD Whitman: "Tom and Julie have been incredibly generous and committed members of the Illini Family, and today's gift illustrates their strong passion for, and loyalty to, their alma mater. They see the bigger picture of how a successful athletic program – and, in particular, a successful football program – can raise the overall profile of our University, leading to a more vibrant, talented, and resourceful institution." (link); Southern Illinois alumnus Helleny has donated to the school the fourth-largest gift in its athletics history. The gift will support the Saluki Athletics Scholarship Fund, and in recognition of Helleny's gift, SIU will name the first home MBB game v. a DI opponent each year the Charles Helleny Tip-Off Classic. AD Kill: "Charles has been loyal to SIU since the day he walked into this place, he never misses a game, he supports every program, he's a special person. I don't know if I've ever met a more giving guy than Charles. I appreciate the tremendous gift, because not many people are willing to step up and do that, and the more who can, the more we can solve problems." The amount of the gift has yet to be disclosed. (link)
Michigan announces the establishment of the Champions Fund, which will focus on supporting student-athlete welfare by financing initiatives such as counseling, career and leadership development, nutrition, athletic medicine, strength and conditioning, international travel and recruiting. AD Manuel: "Our goal is to stay one step ahead of our competition and to remain one of the top college athletic programs in the country by investing directly into student-athlete welfare initiatives. This fund will support areas of personal growth for our student-athletes on a yearly basis and help us build and develop leaders in the community after graduation.” The athletic department invests $15M+ annually toward these initiatives and the Champions Fund will "specifically finance these areas on an annual basis." (link)
The New Mexico Board of Regents this week approved a proposal asking the state for $1.5M in additional funding for athletics; however, none of the money will be used to rescind a previous decision to eliminate four sports, including MSOC. In fact, AD Nunez over the weekend contended that without additional funding more sports may have to be cut. Regents expressed concern over these remarks, noting that paperwork explaining how the new money would be spent made no mention of cutting sports, also citing lawmakers' suggestions that they could find money to reinstate MSOC. Regent Quillen: "We’ve already gone through the cuts … to stabilize your department and not have any worry about further cuts … I was really surprised to see that -- that this $4 (the initial $2.6M to match last year's funding plus this additional $1.5M) million (is necessary to avoid future program cuts), because that is not what was presented, Eddie. That’s not what was presented.” Regent Lee added that she hopes additional funding doesn't come with strings attached. "That’s been my concern, and it’s still my concern, is that we give false hope. But we can’t leave the money on the table. We’re boxed in. … I hope that we’re smart in our ask. And we’re honest in our ask. And we don’t make commitments in our ask that we can never keep." (link)
Iowa State FB has found its 12th game, announcing yesterday that it will host Incarnate Word on December 1. ISU will pay Incarnate Word $300K and provide use of a chartered plane to fly the Cardinals to Iowa. Fans who purchased tickets to the opener against South Dakota State, which was canceled due to inclement weather, will receive tickets to the game. ISU AD Pollard: "We explored multiple options to give our student-athletes every opportunity to compete and, ultimately, be eligible to participate in a bowl game. Our student-athletes only have so many chances in their career to play collegiate football. I'm very grateful to the administration at UIW for helping us provide our student-athletes, as well as our marching band and spirit squad another chance to represent Iowa State University." (link)
Wake Forest has a unique FB scheduling situation this season with five consecutive home FB games from early September through early October, including the hosting of Boston College today, followed by Notre Dame next Saturday. 2D Consulting's Durham weaved together a number of conversations with Deacs leaders to better understand the planning process & challenges. AD Wellman: "We give our folks a lot of latitude. We communicate in all directions, it isn’t just top-down. I think we strike a good balance between formal and informal communications." Assoc. AD for Strategic Communications & Championships Odom: "We always emphasize asking the extra question in terms of customer service. This helps to understand what the fan is looking for." Asst. AD for Athletics Events & Facilities OpsShannon: "In terms of expectations, we have to set the table on the front end so we can control the things that we can control ahead of time." Lots more.

Former Michigan State AD and Title IX expert Baker yesterday asserted that an inquiry into new sexual assault allegations against former MSU physician Nassar is needed to determine whether former MSU AD Perles, whom Baker succeeded, and former field hockey HC Ludwig, reported the allegations when they were relayed to them. In her suit, a former field hockey student-athlete says she reported the assault to Ludwig, Perles intervened and covered up the situation. Baker asserts that not reporting the allegation to the Title IX office would violate federal law. "There are too many questions and too much liability involved. If [MSU] wants to come out of this whole at any point, they’d better start following the procedures and get it done properly so that people can trust the answers that are given.” (link); Meanwhile, The Atlantic's Kitchener and Wong yesterday published a profile of MSU's "moral catastrophe" in light of these most recent allegations against Nassar. Kitchener and Wong methodically point out several of the ways they say MSU has "bungled" its handling of the matter, from the initial investigation to an overall lack of accountability, both by administrators and trustees. "Looked at in aggregate, all of these developments -- from staffing decisions to secret settlement meetings with Nassar’s victims -- add up to a picture of a university in crisis, and show where MSU might go from here." Lots more.

Florence: Football Scoop is keeping an updated list of all FB games this weekend that have been or still may be impacted by Hurricane Florence. As of this writing, 11 games so far have been canceled with no plans to reschedule while 13 games have been moved to other times. Still several other games have been postponed with makeup dates still up in the air. (link); Meanwhile, Tennessee has reached out to families displaced by Florence, offering them free admission to Neyland Stadium for Saturday's game against UTEP. (link); In his mailbag column for The Athletic, Mandel agrees with a reader that it would be worthwhile for ADs, conferences and presidents to discuss adding another week to the FB calendar in light of an uptick in weather-related cancellations. Mandel notes that while the increased cancellations are likely a combination of an abundance of caution and an increase in extreme weather, officials could consider opening the season a week earlier or pushing conference championships back a week, freeing up more space in the middle of the season. (link)

Texas Tech AD Hocutt recalls when he was on the College Football Playoff committee & showed up ready to play a round of golf at Pebble Beach in shorts. Former Secretary of State Rice: "Kirby, you can't wear shorts." Hocutt ended up buying a $300 pair of Adidas pants that he says only got worn one time because of the Red Raiders alignment with Under Armour. Hocutt also mentioned a department goal this year of getting more student-athletes directly into the workforce upon graduation. FB set to wear red jerseys this weekend against Houston, despite a theme of 'Celebrate Cotton,' as a uniform dispute with Houston couldn't quite be worked out. (link)
Florida A&M has been pushing for a balanced budget for a number of years & according to Board of Trustees chair Lawson that goal was achieved for FY18. The Tallahassee Democrat's Dobson points to "creative financing and generosity" from the university. However, Lawson notes the achievements of enhanced fundraising by interim VP of Advancement Friday-Stroud & the athletic department's 'Invest in Champions' campaign. A $9.9M budget moving forward for the Rattlers is described as "a realistic number," though Lawson also says "there's little wiggle room." (link)
FOX is pushing this weekend's Texas-USC FB game hard, with posters from Widen + Kennedy & a tense promo TV spot, despite both having already suffered losses & neither brand as successful as the 2006 Rose Bowl thriller. Fox Sports VP for Marketing Danforth sticks to his guns, "It’s sports. Your heart starts to drop [when they lose], but USC and Texas are such huge programs. You’re almost guaranteed to get something great from them." Yahoo's Forde: "And, hey, the winner of this game will at least come out feeling better about themselves than they had at any point in September. Maybe it can be the start of something big. It will never be the start of something as big as what Fox’s now-awkward marketing campaign pitched, though. You can’t fault the network for trying — and it will keep trying with future games this season. (Danforth coyly touted a promo in the works for Michigan State-Michigan, which the network will show in October.)" (link)
CBSSports.com's Norlander begins a six-part series on what the MBB landscape may look like in a handful of years when a number of big name HCs may be done pacing the sidelines. First up, Duke. Norlander believes the timeline for Coach K is a total unknown, but can't see him still leading the Blue Devils in 2027. Top candidate: Marquette's Wojciechowski. Others: Pittsburgh's Capel, Northwestern's Collins, Arizona State's Hurley & Harvard's Amaker. Norlander has rationale for each and, of course, there's a very clear thread. "But if he goes until 2024, there could easily be a swap of two or three names off this list for others not mentioned. By then, guys like (current AC) Scheyer and (current AC) James could be in play." (link)
The Georgia FB staff includes a number of former Bulldogs student-athletes who now serve as student assistants. Former UGA kicker Butler: "They’re an assistant coach to the assistant coach. For the student-athlete, it gives them somebody who’s a little closer to them. The communication might be a little different. The enforcement comes from the players who have been there. And the encouragement that comes in, 'Hey, you need to listen to Coach, man, he’s right. You may not think he’s right, but he’s right, he’s trying to make you better.'" Current wide receiver Simmons: "They’re older, so they’ve been there and done that before. They bring in a lot more than just being out there with us and not being able to participate. They’re active." More. (link)
TV/OTT: AT&T boss Stephenson believes his new WarnerMedia behemoth has two major opportunities: 1) Competing with Netflix for on demand video content; and, 2) Competing with Google & Facebook for major digital ad dollars, through a new programmatic TV advertising platform. "The business model does have to change. Everybody’s business model is changing right now." (link); Upstart OTT player DAZN (da-zone), led in part by former ESPN boss Skipper, has soft launched here in the States with its bag of MMA & soccer rights. Head of Programming Woodgate: "We think OTT sports is kind of the last bastion of the cable-cutting world. We think sports broadcasting in this format is a great step forward, and we can do so much more with sports data. […] Style, tone, and look and feel is incredibly important." (link); Here's ESPN's new SportsCenter ad campaign, "That's Gonna Be On SportsCenter." (link); Could the sale of Nielsen completely change the TV ratings game? Seems unlikely, but the measurement company is thinking about a sale among other strategic options to enhance the bottom line. (linklink)
Consultants Valcour & McNulty for HBR: To Make a Change at Work, Tell Yourself a Different Story. Thesis: "Once we realize that our behavior stems from stories we construct and repeat until they seem fixed in stone, we become more capable of authoring liberating stories. Reconstituting our stories so that they help us move in the direction we want to go is a process of choice and intentional sense-making. Any leader can begin to develop this powerful skill by learning to recognize the stories you live by — individually and collectively as a team or organization — examining their effects, and refining them to emphasize empowering elements." (link)

The Indy Star's Woods on Notre Dame's new FB indoor facility, which he says serves the purpose "but without the frills." HC Kelly: "This was a necessary piece for our student-athletes to manage a very hectic schedule that we have. We had an indoor facility that was really being run from 5:30 a.m. to almost midnight with intramurals and sports. It made it difficult for our football to train in there at an acceptable time. It was overdue, and we’re thankful we were able to get it done." The new 111,400-square-foot Irish Indoor Athletics Center is set to open in July 2019." AD Swarbrick: "We’re not focused on any sort of amenities, if you will. It sends the wrong message for us. Because it’s not what we’re about." (link)
With an average drop in fans last season of 2,400 at league schools, the SEC faced the biggest decline of any 'Power 5' conference in FB attendance. Commish Sankey: "It's not a sky is falling situation." Ole Miss introduced a more kid-friendly mascot, Mississippi State dropped concession prices, LSU added 'The Chute,' and others have tried a variety of ways to get more butts in seats... and to keep them there. Ole Miss boss Bjork: "It's top of mind every day on how you make it cool and engaging for fans." Alabama AD Byrne: "The biggest challenge we’ve had is, there’s two things: We have gotten more returns from our visitors. I think people aren’t traveling quite as much. The second thing is when games aren’t close getting people to stay and be a part of it for 60 minutes is a challenge. ... Where we’re going to spend the most resources is impacting our fans’ experience for everybody at Bryant-Denny Stadium and Coleman Coliseum. Seating areas, concourses, everything. Restaurants, concessions, video boards." (link)
Houston is hoping to bring back old FB rivalries from the SWC days, including in-state rivals Texas and Texas A&M. AD Pezman in advance of the Cougars game at Texas Tech this weekend: "We want to play everybody in the state. It just makes sense. The geography of it, the ability for our fans to get in the car and drive up and watch a game, it’s a no-brainer from our standpoint. ... Trust me, we reach out to those schools on a regular basis just to gauge interest and try and make it happen. If one of these (in-state schools) becomes available, we’re going to do whatever we can to move things around and make it happen. I couldn’t print enough tickets. The significance to our fanbase is very real. It’s very present, and something we are very mindful of and we try and work towards. We won’t stop until we make it happen." (link); Former Miami (FL)/current Texas Tech AD Hocutt was leading the Canes when he agreed to this weekend's FB matchup at Toledo. From the Toledo Blade's Briggs: "If a MAC school has ever pulled off a bigger on-campus scheduling coup, you’ll have to tell us." A bit more on the details from the perspective of Rockets' AD O'Brien.  (link)
EYBL Director/HC Hart, who spends his days as a SVP at Merrill Lynch, with some interesting comments on the AAU scene, especially as it relates to shoe companies being involved: "If this was charity or philanthropic work, they’d go straight to heaven. If they did this in tennis or golf, everyone would praise it. Why is basketball different?" More on the grassroots scene: "The USA is still producing the best basketball players. From their 10K-foot view, if you invite the NBA, the NCAA, USA Basketball, and high school basketball into a room with consultants to figure out what’s wrong, well, who’s not in the room? Grassroots basketball. So of course, we’re the bogey man for everybody." Jerry Meyer, former Lipscomb standout and current director of basketball scouting for 247Sports: "What are fundamentals? Was Steve Nash fundamental? Steve Nash broke every rule you were taught at basketball camp in the 1990s. Players are way more skilled now. I prefer that term. What I see is pretty high level. Well played. It’s better than high school ball. I think a lot of people have it backwards. No one cares about the kids. It’s what the coaches think, the poor coaches. The college coaches are driving all this stuff. What about the 17 and 16 year olds? I think it’s way better for them now because of the shoe companies." (link)
LEAD1 Prez/CEO McMillen discusses fan attendance at football games in his latest 'Byte of the Week.' McMillen says the answer to why fans aren't attending in equal or better numbers that the past is a complex one. Ubiquitous broadcasts, challenges with Gen Z, ticket & concession costs, as well as parking & in-game down time. Points to Stanford's coming 5G upgrades, Akron's free music festivals, UCF's beach club, the Pac-12 attempting to shorten games & Alabama's coming student terrace. "The solution is not simple." More.
