Outgoing Idaho Prez Stuben talks about the handling of the 2012 incident involving a FB student-athlete that may have impacted later events that included female student-athletes. Stuben: "...it is possible that all of the 2013 incidents could have been avoided. That’s very much the tenor of what we’re taking from this review." Also, "You don’t want too cozy a relationship between the police department and athletics. You want there to be an objective relationship between the university and the police department. […] The Moscow Police Department has at times followed the policy or procedure of notifying (the athletic department) of student-athlete misconduct, and we are making clear to them that we expect that they will always notify the dean of students of that kind of misconduct. That’s important because we need the objectivity outside of athletics in order to ensure we respond properly as a university." In the Idaho Statesman piece, columnist Manny says it's hard to see how on leave Vandals AD Spear returns to his job. (link)
San Diego State sent an email to its fans this week to encourage them to support the new deal with SDCCU Stadium that still needs City Council's blessing. The Aztecs are prepared to pay a sharp increase, from $1 per ticket to a $1.1M flat fee. Vote set for Monday. (link); Aztecs FB also unveiled a new locker room. Dark wood lockers, red & black branding everywhere, multiple 43-inch screens. $2M project. Gensler designed, DPR Construction was the GC. Video included. (link)

(link); At Richmond, the $7M commitment to overhaul FB's digs also includes new strength & conditioning, as well as sports medicine spaces. AD Hardt: "Probably most exciting to me as a new [athletics director] is talking to the student-athletes, and getting their impressions. They’ve been off-the-charts positive. They couldn’t be more excited. It’s a game-changer." (link - video, link - article)
Ticket Sales: Michigan has moved nearly 90K season packages for the upcoming campaign, though there's currently a 12.7% dip in student commitments for a slate that doesn't include Ohio State or Michigan State. (link); USF's season sales to date are up nicely year over year. The Bulls currently stand at 15,698 versus a touch over 14K this time last year. Senior Assoc. AD for External Relations Goodrich: "Literally hundreds of people renewed the first day (leveraged with giveaways of surplus Under Armour jerseys). I've long held the belief that the earlier people renew, the earlier they tell their friends they've renewed, they start getting in the mood and say, 'All right, I've got to go out and buy tickets.'" More than 2,500 tix have been moves to new buyers. (link)
Also Noticed: Looks like Oregon State may be the next Pac-12 member to add beer at FB games. (link); Maybe I missed more on this or don't recall the initial release, but James Madison is implementing full cost of attendance in the fall of 2019. (link); Elon should be done with an overhaul to FB's practice fields by the end of a month. $1M project. (link); Houston adding a RedZone Tailgate Experience before FB games that will be hosted in the Indoor Practice Facility. Access starts as low as $10 per ticket. (link); ESPN extends with Top Rank Boxing through 2025. (link); beIN Sports is now off Verizon, too. (link); The North Carolina College Athletics Marketing Summit looks to have been a success. 21 schools from across the state attended. Brainchild of Wake Forest Assoc. AD Odom & UNC Greensboro Senior Assoc. AD George. (link); McNeese State will host preseason practices for the Houston Rockets.
