Welcome to The Weekly Audible, the first of what will hopefully be many articles focused on the feedback and commentary we get regarding the articles and news published on College AD. We’re almost ashamed it took us this long to realize that the chatter we see in our Twitter feed and inbox is just as important as the articles themselves.
So, without further ado, here is what you had to say this week.
Regarding the Division I board’s decision to approve alcohol sales at baseball and softball championship events.
“Wow. That’s a game changer. #Priorities” – Former Baylor Head Baseball Coach, Steve Smith, @HardBallCoach34
“@HardBallCoach34 @collegead I’m sure it’s to raise money for more baseball scholarships.” – High School Coach, Ben Basden, @CoachBasden
“@HardBallCoach34 @collegead Priorities?
1. Money 2. Money 3. Money 4. Money 5. Money 6. Money 7. Money #9,0000, Athletes” – Former Kentucky Baseball Coach, Keith Madison, @KeithMadison32
Regarding the Power 5 option to table new legislation, reminding many of the old NCAA structure.
“Who is putting the Athletes interests FIRST?” – Former College and Professional Women’s Basketball Coach, Lin Dunn, @Coach_Dunn
On the TopConnect event for up-and-coming football coaches.
“Great event to be involved in. Thanks to everyone that participated!” – ARMS Software, @ARMSsoftwareLLC
“I thought TopConnect was great. I really enjoyed listening to the head coaches talk about their career paths, how they worked themselves up to becoming head coaches and the challenges they faced during their times with their teams. I also gained a lot of insight from the AD panel, specifically what they are looking for in candidates and how they conduct their interviews and some of the pitfalls applicants fell into while they were interviewing. Top Connect was great experience. Look forward to seeing where this goes and staying in touch with everyone I met.” – Email from anonymous FCS football coach
On our article about deciding which women’s sports to add.
“Good article by @collegead on adding women’s sports. One notable listed; women’s rowing (@CabriniCavs added in Dec.)” – Cabrini College Associate AD, Brian Beacham, @BrianBeacham
“How about polling the current student body??” – TCU Facilities/Operations Intern, @Selje3
On Auburn basketball being fined $100 thousand for storming the court.
“Well that’s dumb” – @CBBNewsCenter
“@CBBNewsCenter @collegead @AuburnTigers Know the rules Get better security. 100K would buy a lot of books.” – Wichita State Nursing Instructor, Patty Beamer, @PattyBeamer
Regarding future locations of the NCAA Convention.
“Damn, don’t see Yankton in there…. ” – Assistant Sports Editor at the Yankton (South Dakota) Press, Jeremy Hoeck, @jhoeck
