UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN

Mike Eaves is one of the most distinguished figures in Wisconsin athletic history, which is why this moment is particularly difficult. Eaves has been relieved of his duties as UW men’s hockey coach after 14 seasons, which included an NCAA championship in 2006, a national runner-up finish in 2010 and, at last count, 26 players who’ve reached the NHL. Eaves is also the all-time leading scorer in program history, a three-time captain, a two-time Most Valuable Player, an honor student and member of the UW Athletic Hall of Fame. Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez made the decision after the six-time national champion Badgers labored through consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 1995-97 and saw fan support at the Kohl Center dwindle. –Read More

The concepts, which were recommended during the committee’s March 7-8 meeting in Indianapolis, are the result of a three-year effort to review the financial aid legislation, gain membership feedback and ultimately develop new financial aid rules that better serve Division II student-athletes and administrators.

After the Purdue-Little Rock game went to double overtime, all fans had to quickly clear out of Denver’s Pepsi Center, so that new fans could enter for the evening session. The only problem: the next game, between Utah and Fresno State, started well before the arena could re-fill. The problem here boils down to the NCAA not scheduling enough time between sessions. Understandably, everyone involved wants to optimize tip times for the TV audience, but the casualty of that calculus is the in-person crowd, including those who have tickets to both sessions but have to leave and re-enter between them. -Alex Putterman, The Comeback, Read More

Michigan State’s athletic director, Mark Hollis, will be the chairman of the 10-member men’s basketball selection committee when the 2017 N.C.A.A. tournament tips off next March. He will already have something on his plate when he takes over: soothing fans, athletes and viewers who criticized this year’s selection show, which dragged on for two hours on CBS last Sunday even as the official bracket leaked online. “We’ll talk about all aspects of the production with CBS and Turner in our summer meetings,” Hollis said. “The goal is to provide fans and student-athletes the best show possible.” Hollis said he could not comment on possible alterations to the show. It is likely, however, that in the future the tournament selections will be made in the first 30 minutes and the rest of the show will be left to commentary and analysis. Hollis predicted CBS and Turner Sports, which share the broadcasting rights to the tournament, and the basketball committee would have little trouble making the fixes. -Ray Glier, NY Times, Read More

As a flurry of college basketball games tip off Thursday and Friday, two top teams are notably absent. The University of Louisville withheld itself from this year’s NCAA Division I championship, also known as March Madness, amid allegations of recruiting misconduct. The NCAA, meanwhile, banned Southern Methodist University in Dallas from the tournament because of academic violations. The financial blowback of their absences extends well beyond the teams themselves. Louisville and SMU ended the year ranked 16th and 24th, respectively, in The Associated Press rankings. Both teams likely would have qualified for March Madness and might have made deep runs. The NCAA distributes the roughly $200 million basketball fund to conferences partially based on their teams’ postseason performances in a rolling six-year period. For every March Madness game won, the NCAA awards a “unit,” which is worth about $260,000 this year. “The biggest short-term impact is forgoing the revenue the conferences would have received if they played in the postseason,” said Manish Tripathi, an Emory University marketing professor who studies sports. -Jacob Pramuk, CNBC, Read More

The Texas Tribune reviewed annual financial reports submitted to the NCAA by all eight public universities in Texas that play in the highest level of college football, the Football Bowl Subdivision. (Private colleges also have to submit records but don’t have to make them available under state open records laws.) In 2008, the schools collected $27 million in student fees that went to athletics. In the 2015 fiscal year, that number had more than doubled to $57 million. All of the schools that play FBS football are grappling with growing expenses brought upon by conference realignment, fast-growing coaches’ salaries and new rules pertaining to athletic scholarships and benefits. For the major programs like Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Austin, those costs are manageable. Revenues are growing just as fast. But the rest — UNT, Texas State University, the University of Houston, the University of Texas at El Paso and the University of Texas at San Antonio — are having a hard time keeping up. Athletic department officials say the fees are ultimately good for their schools. Successful sports teams provide millions of dollars’ worth of university marketing, encourage school spirit and inspire alumni to donate to their alma maters, they say. -Matthew Watkins, Texas Tribune, Read More

You’ve all undoubtedly by now have heard of our friends and partners at Teamworks. Many of you even use the application to help your departments run smoother, but have you ever wondered how Teamsworks became Teamworks? Kevin J. Ryan of Inc has the inside story. “Like most college freshmen, Zach Maurides didn’t have a clue how to manage his time. The Duke student-athlete played offensive line on the school’s football team, and juggling class with team commitments proved too much for an 18-year-old to handle. “I spent several mornings my freshman year running the stadium stairs at 4 a.m.,” he says, “because I’d forgotten an appointment or showed up late.” The problems persisted. More missed meetings. More punishment. Finally, Maurides hacked together a solution in the form of an app as part of a computer science class assignment. Fast forward to today. When the first round of the March Madness men’s basketball tournament kicks off on March 17, the NCAA will be using the app Maurides created to help himself manage his schedule. The platform, called Teamworks, helps coaches stay on top of their teams by letting them update athletes’ individual calendars and message them in real time. And it all started in Maurides’s college classroom.” –Read More
