UNO still isn’t ready to implement full cost of attendance scholarships. He said he’s not sure how many other major hockey schools are doing so, but he said he doesn’t feel UNO is at a competitive disadvantage at this point. UNO will continue to evaluate the situation. UNO’s move to Division I continues to pay. The school has received an unprecedented $45 million in private donations in the five years since the move. “People who weren’t taking our calls before are calling us,” he said. “The power of the Division I brand is really remarkable.” -Henry J.

In a small office tucked away in the bowels of the DakotaDome, Jeanette Hubert plans for the Athletic Department’s coming year. Hubert, the Associate Athletic Director of Finance & Administration for USD, and her one assistant race against the clock every year to plan the department’s $12.9 million budget before July 1, the start of the new fiscal year. Out of the $12.9 million, $4.3 million must be budgeted for student-athlete scholarships, something Hubert said is the largest bill the department has to pay for every year. About $5.3 million of the $12.9 million budget comes from outside sources. Hubert said these sources include ticket sales, fundraising done through the USD Foundation, advertising revenue and NCAA revenue. Part of the budget for this year already has to be reworked because of a recent South Dakota Board of Regents decision. Last year the General Activities Fee (GAF) was raised, which was expected to generate more than $700,000 this year for USD. About $620,000 of this year’s GAF amount was slated to go to the athletics department, but due to the recent tuition freeze in the state, the GAF increase won’t happen and the department won’t be getting the money. -Malachi Petersen, The Volante, Read More

Amid an internal university investigation into Loyola’s women’s basketball head coach Sheryl Swoopes’ questionable treatment of players, new information shows the NCAA has been aware of Swoopes’ conduct since 2014. Cate Soane, a player on Loyola’s 2013-14 roster, told The PHOENIX that Swoopes mistreated players in the program from the start of Swoopes’ first season at the university. Soane, now a pre-med student at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), decided after her first season as a Rambler that she wanted to move on from Swoopes and her program. After Soane made the decision to transfer to play basketball at UIC, Soane sent a letter to the NCAA — the governing body for collegiate athletics — in August 2014 requesting to avoid a redshirt year. NCAA rules state that players who transfer schools must sit out one season, called a redshirt year, before playing for their new universities. In the five-page letter, Soane detailed her concerns with Loyola’s women’s basketball program, citing specific incidents in which she and her teammates felt mistreated by Swoopes. Three other letters sent to the NCAA, written by people close to the team, backed Soane and also detailed Swoopes’ alleged mistreatment. Soane said the NCAA failed to respond to her directly, instead asking Swoopes what she thought of the situation. -Madeline Kenney and Nader Issa, Loyola Phenoix, Read More

A new federal lawsuit filed by a student punished for sexual assault by Colorado State University-Pueblo is taking on a target much more prominent than the school: The Department of Education. The complaint filed Tuesday by Grant Neal, represented by Andrew T. Miltenberg, names CSU Pueblo and several officials as defendants, as well as the Education Department, Secretary John B. King, Jr., and Assistant Secretary Catherine Lhamon. CSU Pueblo is accused of not conducting a fair investigation into a sexual misconduct claim against Neal, which resulted in his suspension in December. Neal claims he received an inadequate hearing at which he wasn’t able to defend himself fully. Neal was kicked off the football team during this process. The Education Department is accused of having violated the Administrative Procedure Act when its Office for Civil Rights released its 2011 Dear Colleague letter. -Tyler Kingkade, Huffington Post, Read More

While the Utah baseball team’s 8-4 league record leads the Pac-12 this week in the standings, the program has long been locked into sharing something: its home stadium. But Utah athletics revealed this week that it is starting to take concrete — albeit early — steps toward building an on-campus facility that the program hopes will revitalize interest in the baseball team and lead to greater recruiting success and consistently competitive play. Athletic director Chris Hill said the department has drawn up renderings for a 2,000-seat stadium that would sit in the place of Utah’s current practice field on Guardsman Way, near the football facility and straddling Sunnyside Park. Hill estimates the renovation, construction and land acquisition to pull off the project would cost roughly $7.5 million, backed by donors. The Utes are currently housed at Smith’s Ballpark, a 15,411-seat stadium that is the home of the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees. -Kyle Goon, Salt Lake Tribune, Read More

The process should be smoother this time, and the votes appear to be there. So don’t expect much drama Friday when the University of Nevada Board of Regents debate and vote on new UNLV basketball coach Marvin Menzies’ five-year contract. The dollar amounts should work in Menzies’ favor. He will make a guaranteed amount of $700,000 each of his first three seasons and $800,000 in each of the final two years of the contract. Beard was to make at least $900,000 next season, with the figure rising to a minimum of $1.4 million in the fourth year. -Mark Anderson, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Read More

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA

Garnet is the University of South Carolina’s primary school color. Logos, letterheads and uniforms proudly feature the bold shade of red. However, in at least one office on campus, the goal is to use only the secondary school color. Black. That office belongs to Jeff Tallant, the chief financial officer for the USC athletic department. USC enjoyed another fiscal year in the black, and the program is positioned to keep garnet ink out of the bottom line of the ledger. According to a copy of a financial report it submitted to the NCAA, South Carolina recorded $113,172,545 in revenue during the 2014-15 school year. That is a 14.8 percent increase from the revenue South Carolina reported the previous year. -Mandrallius Robinson, greenvilleonline.comRead More

Ludacris saved the day for Georgia when it came to providing a pre-game concert for the fans. It didn’t come cheap, either. The University of Georgia Athletic Association paid Ludacris and his crew $65,000 for the 15-minute performance he put on before the G-Day spring game kicked off, according to a contract obtained via the Open Records Act. Georgia also provided local ground transportation for the show. A week ago, athletic director Greg McGarity said Georgia would not be able to put on a pre-game concert even though it had previously stated it would be able to. Negotiations with other acts had apparently fallen through. That’s when Ludacris’ representation called Georgia to inquire any interest. -Jason Butt, The TelegraphRead More

NCAA President Mark Emmert made a pretty big promise to his employer in 2006. After becoming one of the nation’s highest-paid public school presidents at the University of Washington, Emmert signed a pledge form that year to give some of his money back to the school — $100,000 to go toward a scholarship fund. But he never followed through on that pledge, and that makes him a hypocrite, said Jay M. Glazer, a big Washington booster and philanthropist. “The president of the university is the lead fundraiser,” said Glazer, not to be confused with the NFL analyst for Fox Sports. “We’re all expected to pay (our pledges). … Your integrity is on the line. You don’t make up phony stuff.” – Brent Schrotenboer, USA TODAY SportsRead More

BIG TEN CONFERENCE

Fox is close to signing a deal that gives it half of the Big Ten’s available media rights package, according to several sources. Deal terms still are flexible – both in terms of money and rights. However, the two sides have agreed on basic terms that will give Fox the rights to around 25 football games and 50 basketball games that it will carry on both the broadcast channel and FS1 starting in the fall of ’17. The deal runs six years and could cost Fox as much as $250M per year, depending on the amount of rights the Big Ten conference puts in its second package. The Fox deal essentially is half of the package of games that had been with ESPN (as part of a 10-year, $1B deal that expires next spring) and CBS (as part of a 6-year, $72M basketball-only deal that also expires next spring). The Big Ten will return to the market to solicit bids on the second half of the package. The conference has the flexibility to allow for another network or two to pick up that half. ESPN will be one of several TV networks engaged for the second half of the Big Ten’s package, along with the usual suspects of CBS, NBC and Turner. – John Ourand & Michael Smith, sportsbusinessdaily.comRead More

Student athletic fees, which fuel college athletics at the state’s mid-major schools, continue to rise in South Carolina. The state’s six public mid-major schools (FCS and non-football Division I programs) raised their athletic fees for in-state students by an average of 11.5 percent in 2014-15, according to figures from the state Commission on Higher Education. The increases ranged from 51.4 percent at Coastal Carolina to 2.9 percent at College of Charleston, with South Carolina State decreasing its reported fee by 3 percent. The Citadel boosted its fee some 3.9 percent to $2,486 per student, while College of Charleston’s fee rose almost 3 percent to $1,246 per student. -Jeff Hartsell, The Post and CourierRead More
