HIGH POINT UNIVERSITY

A three-year research study at High Point University has revealed that certain physical performance tests developed by the university can be used to predict athletic injuries before they occur. The results are helping HPU identify injury potential in student-athletes and develop training programs to prevent those injuries from happening. Working with exercise science and athletic training faculty and students as well as the Department of Athletics, Hegedus gave screening tests to HPU athletes in the pre-season and followed them closely, recording any injuries. Though previous studies had shown tests by various sports medicine professionals not to be predictive, tests developed by HPU were found to be successful in predicting injury. –Read More

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS

One of the big stories of the summer in Conference USA has been the league’s new television contract and how it will impact both the league and its schools. Bottom line, television revenue is going to fall. UNT receives a lot more money than it used to from student fees, but a big chunk of those funds are tied up paying off Apogee Stadium. The school’s athletic department has plenty of other sources for income besides ticket sales and TV money. Donations are another, but UNT tapped into its key donors recently to build Apogee and a host of other facilities. The question UNT’s new athletic director will face is where to turn in order to make up for what will almost certainly be a pretty significant drop in television revenue at a time when attendance has either fallen dramatically (men’s basketball) or has not grown as quickly as hoped (football) in key revenue sports that bolster the bottom line. -Brett Vtio, Denton Record Chronicle, Read More

MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY

Following a report of lost TV revenue, athletics director Chris Massaro said Wednesday that MTSU indeed will have to do belt-tightening in its athletics department. The conference’s total revenue will plummet from $15.4 million to $2.8 million next year, according to a report by the Virginian-Pilot that cited documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. That means member schools such as MTSU will see just $200,000 each, down from $1.1 million. While Massaro said he’s confident sponsorships and bowl performance could help mitigate the Blue Raiders’ $900,000 drop, he clarified Wednesday that he understands the realities of the situation. “It is concerning,” Massaro said. “What we are looking at is the best-case scenario that if a Conference USA team makes a run like Houston did in 2015-16 or if a team made a run at the Final Four in basketball, it could help mitigate the lost revenue. -Aldo Giovanni Amato, The Tennessean, Read More

INDIANA UNIVERSITY

There’s no denying it, Tom Crean said. The numbers are out of whack. According to the Advocates for Athletic Equity, during the 2014-15 men’s college basketball season, six out of every 10 NCAA Division I players were ethnic minorities. Their coaches? About 1-in-10. The Indiana University men’s basketball coach didn’t know the specifics of the problem until Wednesday. The numbers took him by surprise, but his reaction in the face of them was definitive: There needs to be more diversity among the ranks of NCAA coaches, and not just men’s basketball. “Absolutely, I think that,” Crean said. “That’s absolutely true.” -Jim Ayello, indystar.comRead More
