1. Cream of the Crop
 



The Woman of the Year Selection Committee has announced the Top 30 honorees for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Selected from a record 605 school nominees — a group that was then narrowed to 161 nominees by conference offices — the Top 30 honorees include 10 from each of the three NCAA divisions. All have demonstrated excellence in academics, athletics, community service and leadership. The honorees competed in 14 sports and studied a broad range of academic majors, including nursing, mechanical engineering, biochemistry, criminal justice, kinesiology, accounting and advertising.

The selection committee will announce the nine finalists, including three women from each NCAA division, in mid-October. From those finalists, the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will select the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year. The Top 30 will be celebrated, and the Woman of the Year will be named this fall.

>> What They're Saying: “The 30 honorees selected this year excelled in the classroom and in competition while also remaining committed to serving their peers and communities,” said Suzette McQueen, chair of the Woman of the Year Selection Committee.

2.  DIIICA Winter Champs Survey
 

The Division III Commissioners Association (DIIICA) surveyed the DIII membership on the topic of timing for possible winter championship competition. The DIIICA asked about basketball, ice hockey, indoor track and field, swimming and diving and wrestling and received an 88 percent response rate.

Highlights

  • A large majority of men's ice hockey respondents - 80 percent - believe the date should be moved back with 36 percent suggesting two weeks. The women's ice hockey respondents fell 76 and 42 percent, respectively.
     
  • 76 percent of basketball respondents said that the tourneys should be moved back by two weeks - most (36%) saying two weeks.
     
  • 69 percent of wrestling respondents believed in a move, including 38 percent who suggested two weeks.
     
  • Two-thirds (66%) of swimming and diving respondents opined that the idea of moving the championship meet was good. 28 percent stated the a two-week move was best, while a similar percentage opted for three weeks.
     
  • Perhaps surprisingly, indoor track and field had less than half of the respondents (48%) suggest a delay in the championship date. A third of the respondents stated the date should remain intact.


Very few respondents indicated that winter sports competition would begin prior to January 1, 2021, in any sport. Aspirationally, many are hoping for a January 1-20 first contest date but an equal number are unsure as to a first competition.

>> Be Smart: 392 institutions participated in the survey. A majority said it is not determined as of today when winter sport students would return to campus following Thanksgiving.

 

3.  PAC Announces Return to Play Plans
 

Presidents' Athletic Conference - Home | Facebook

"The Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) has announced preliminary spring scheduling models and postseason championship opportunities for four of the league’s fall championship sports that had their intercollegiate athletic competition postponed in August in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Included are the NCAA-defined “high contact risk” sports of football, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball. The spring schedules will feature conference-only competition and provide student-athletes with the option of extending their participation by completing only 50 percent or less of the sport’s maximum contests or dates of competition. 

  • Football: Start March 12; Finish April 23
  • Soccer: Start March 11-14; Finish April 30-May 1
  • Volleyball: Start February 25-27; Finish April 14

Preliminary scheduling models for the league’s sponsored spring championship sports (baseball, softball, men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, men’s outdoor track and field, women’s outdoor track and field) are also being reviewed. Additional information on spring sports scheduling models and postseason championship opportunities will be available at a later date.

6.  1 Zoom Thing

ZOOM Meeting - Unable To Connect. Make Sure You Are Connect To The Internet  - Error Code 5003 - YouTube

by Denise K. Magner, senior editor, Chronicle of Higher Education
 

"By now in the pandemic, academics are at least agreed on one thing: Too many Zoom meetings can be utterly exhausting. The technology is working well for many. But it’s all too easy in this work-from-home era to spend your entire workday on Zoom, which is unproductive and tiring, not to mention unrealistic if you have kids around you 24/7.

One solution: Aggressively manage your Zoom meetings and your time online with the following strategies:

  • “Can I cancel this meeting?” It’s helpful to look at the week ahead and revisit whether you really need to attend all of those meetings you’ve got scheduled. If it can wait, cancel or reschedule.
  • Put it in an email. Some meetings don’t need to happen — ever. If the meeting is informational, just put the details in an email. If someone else is running the meeting, ask them to email you with the particulars.
  • Get up and move. If you don’t need to take notes or see visuals, try to walk during online meetings — around the room, on a treadmill, or outside.
  • Record now, watch later. If you can’t make a meeting, if you’re double-booked, or if you were planning to attend but your child is suddenly melting down about a complicated math problem, consider signing in and recording the session."

1.  Proposal Caps Brackets
 

Introducing the NCAA Headquarters | Fan Fuel HQ
by Greg Johnson, NCAA

"The Division III Championships Committee on Tuesday recommended that winter and spring 2021 national championship brackets and field sizes not exceed 75% of their standard capacity.

A caveat to the proposal is if a sport’s maximum number of allocated automatic qualifiers surpasses the 75% threshold, the championship could expand the field to accommodate each automatic berth. This is consistent with the Division III philosophy of emphasizing conference competition. The committee’s main goal was to preserve access to NCAA championships through automatic qualification.

Field sizes for individual sports also would be reduced to 75% of their typical size.

The recommendation will make its way through the Division III governance structure, including getting feedback from winter and spring sport committees, before the Management and Presidents Councils make a final decision in October."

>> Background: "Following the recommendation of the recently expanded NCAA COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group, all tournament sites would be predetermined in an effort to safely host winter championships participants. Testing and other sanitation protocol requirements will increase total expenses for winter and spring championships. These two recommendations add approximately $9 million in additional costs and ultimately were the reason the committee made its recommendation."

>> What They're Saying: "This decision was not made lightly,” said Kiki Jacobs, committee chair and the director of athletics at Roger Williams. “We concluded this was the best way to provide high-quality championship experiences for student-athletes. Given the obligations to prepare sites and follow the required health protocols, the committee had to make the tough decision to recommend fewer opportunities this year.”

>> What This Means: A revised field size could look like this.

Field Hockey: 18 teams from 24
Football: 24 from 32
Soccer / Volleyball (W) / Basketball:  48 from 64
Ice Hockey (M): 9 from 12
Ice Hockey (W): 7 from 10
Baseball: 44 from 58
Golf (M): 32 from 43
Golf (W): 22 from 26
Lacrosse (M): 27 from 36
Lacrosse (W): 33 from 44
Softball: 46 from 62
Tennis (M): 34 from 44
Tennis (W): 37 from 49
Volleyball (M): 12 from 16

2.  Colleges Strain Under COVID Pressures
 

Monmouth College Rankings, Tuition, Acceptance Rate, etc.
by Sam Brigar, NPR

"As the fall semester kicks into gear, college campuses have become the pandemic's newest hot spots. The New York Times reports there are more than 88,000 coronavirus cases at the nation's colleges and universities.

Scott Carlson, a senior writer at The Chronicle of Higher Education, isn't surprised by those numbers.

"A lot of people thought that there would be an explosion of cases on campus," Carlson says. "Most of the students that I talked to — for example, at USC — they all knew that the colleges couldn't keep this under control. They just wanted to turn up for a few weeks to see if they could have something of a fall semester experience."

Carlson estimates that about 20% of American colleges or universities are offering primarily in-person classes, while 16% are offering a mix of in-person and online experiences. Many others are completely virtual. Carlson notes that in many cases, the decision to offer in-person classes was driven largely by financial concerns."

>> Background: "There are a number of schools that have prominent athletic programs. Very few schools actually make money off of the athletics, but even when they don't make money off the athletics, the athletics ends up being something that attracts students both to go to school there — to play athletics, but also to watch the athletics. So if sports is not going on, that ends up being a hit. I think of a place like Monmouth College, for example, in Illinois. They told me that 50% of the students there are athletes, [Division 3] athletes. So going there and playing their sport is a huge incentive for the students to enroll in Monmouth."

>> Quotable: "We make money on the dorms. We break even on dining, and we lose money on everything else, including the education and tuition." - A small private college president in Ohio 

>> Yes, But: "Many people who live in these small towns realize that the college is a vital driver of businesses and activity there. And at the same time, traditionally students have been troublemakers. There's tension between the college and the administration of the college and the power of that college. And then there tends to be tension between the college and the local community in terms of the decision-making there, mainly because the university or college tends to wield a lot of power and tends to push the city around."

"Before Alex Dellas became the Hiram women's basketball head coach, she was once a member of the same women's basketball team. Dellas, a second-generation Terrier whose father also attended Hiram, appeared in 101 career games from 2006-10. A four-year letterwinner, she played in at least 24 games every season, totaling over 500 points throughout her career.

"My student-athlete experience was challenging and rewarding. I loved my team, my coaches, and was super appreciative for the opportunity to play at Hiram," said Dellas.

After her playing career at Hiram, Dellas earned her Master's Degree at Kent State University, followed by assistant coaching stops at Williams College for three seasons and two years at former NCAC conference member, Case Western Reserve.

The 2020-21 season marks Dellas's fourth season as head coach of the Terriers after returning to her alma mater in 2017.

"Not only do I get to continue my life in the NCAC, but I'm able to continue at the school I attended," said Dellas. "I am so honored to be at a conference that embraces men's and women's sports equally and at a school where our mission reflects my personal beliefs."

4.  Guarding Royalty 


The University of Wisconsin-Superior has welcomed many international students throughout the years with fascinating backgrounds and accomplishments, but Phillip Eriksen is the only one who can say he has served in His Majesty The King’s Guard.

Phillip, who hails from Skjetten, Norway, served in the Norwegian military and was assigned to the King’s Guard to defend the royal family’s residence – a role much like the more commonly known Queens Guard in London.

“It was a huge honor and you really represent all of Norway when you put on that uniform,” said Eriksen. “I had to take a series of physical and mental aptitude tests when I entered the military and when I found out I was chosen for The King’s Guard, I called my grandmother and mother and they both cried because they were so proud.”

Eriksen said the experience taught him discipline and perseverance, traits he relied heavily upon to pursue his dream of playing soccer and studying in the U.S. He and two other Norwegian soccer players, Nicolai Svensrud and Nicolai Stokker, chose UW-Superior over hundreds of other schools amidst many hurdles due to the pandemic and traveled thousands of miles to pursue their college and athletic dreams. The three join two other Norwegian soccer players already at UW-Superior.

>> Situational Awareness: "Eriksen explained that universities in Norway do not offer athletics. The only way to continue playing after high school is through a club, which can be very time consuming, so typically people have to choose either academics or athletics, prompting many to study abroad in the United States where they can do both."

>> What They're Saying: "One of our greatest strengths as a program is the diversity within our team. We have players who look different than one another, have different socio-economic backgrounds, believe in different religions, have different political views, have grown up in places all over the world, and speak different first languages. It means that we challenge each other based on our own perspective and we embrace others’ perspectives, especially when they differ from our own." - Joe Mooney, head soccer coach

>> The Final Word: “This has been my dream since I was young and if I learned one thing in the military, it’s how to work hard, never give up and press on to my goals."

NCAA advises schools to give athletes day off from sports on Election Day

The NCAA Division I Council will vote today on a recommendation from the DI Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to adopt a legislative proposal to specify that countable athletically related activities be prohibited on the first Tuesday after Nov. 1 every year, including the upcoming Election Day on Nov. 3.

If approved, it would apply to Division I student-athletes and go into effect immediately, though previously scheduled competition for this year’s Election Day may be honored.

We want to encourage Division III to join our Division I brethren and push for similar legislation. 

Only 30 percent of 18-to-24 year-old voters turned out for the 2018 U.S. midterm elections. In 2016, only 39.4 percent voted, while nearly half were not even registered to vote.

Eric Reveno, assistant men's basketball coach at Georgia Tech, has led a one-man crusade to male Election Day a mandated NCAA off day. And we support the cause. 

>> What They're Saying: "As mentors and coaches and educators, we need to teach this life skill of civic engagement," Reveno told theScore. "We teach financial literacy, we teach recovery, we teach nutrition, we teach all the benefits of proper sleep, health. But we haven't done a good job of teaching the basic civics of educating on local elections and getting registered and all that stuff. So that was it."

>> The Big Picture: "One thing that came up again and again was that this proposal isn’t about getting “a day off” or anything like that. These young people want to take action. They want to use this day to help make voting more of a priority, and to assist people who may not otherwise be able to vote. These student-leaders make me so proud. And they fill me with hope for our collective future." - Chris Bosh, former NBA All-Star, Toronto Raptors

2.  Administrative Committee Recap


The Division III Administrative Committee, acting on behalf of the Management and Presidents Councils, approved legislation in final format to permit Division III student-athletes to use their name, image and likeness to promote their own work product or services and to promote third-party products and services.

This proposal would permit Division III student-athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner that is consistent with the NCAA Board of Governors’ guiding principles and with the Board’s direction to consider appropriate rules changes based on recommendations from the Federal and State Legislation Working Group. These recommendations fall into two categories: (1) activities related to a student-athletes work product or service; and (2) promotion/endorsement of third-party products and services. Student-athletes should have full use of their name, image and likeness for commercial promotional purposes. Importantly, these opportunities can occur in a manner that is consistent with the NCAA's core values, mission and principles, while prioritizing student-athlete well-being. Further, the recommended administrative framework for these legislative changes ensures that the legislation will be transparent and enforceable, in line with the Board’s principles.

The legislation would be effective on August 1, 2021.

3.  Predetermined Sites for Winter Champs?

Fort Wayne ready for NCAA D3 final four this weekend


The Division III Championships Committee held a videoconference last week and announced that all winter championship competition will be conducted at predetermined sites given the additional and unique requirements related to COVID-19 testing, quarantine procedures, sanitization standards, etc.

The committee, headed by chair Kiki Jacobs of Roger Williams, reviewed potential measures to reduce costs given that the current projections for conducting winter and spring sport championships exceed the division's entire championship budget for 2020-21.

Members also acknowledged those discussions may impact whether the current winter championship selection and competition dates remain relevant or if they need to be adjusted.
