    1. A New Organization for College Sports?
     

    Say Goodbye to College Football as We Know It | State College, PA
    by Joe Moglia, chair of athletics, Coastal Carolina University


    "The gold rush of deals that followed last summer’s Supreme Court decision on NIL was the single most significant thing to happen to college sports in decades, but the NCAA punted on the chance to enact real change. NIL was in the works for years, and yet NCAA leadership was totally absent.

    NCAA president Mark Emmert recently announced he would be stepping down in the middle of his term. Emmert has been getting paid—and will continue to be paid—for having abdicated his leadership responsibility. Right now in the real world, student athletes are being courted by high-roller boosters and businesses offering the kinds of incentives the NCAA always objected to. Making matters worse, the NCAA’s choice to abandon the transfer rule has been catastrophic, allowing athletes to essentially be free agents—without contracts—from day one. This cat’s not going back in the bag.

    Presidents, commissioners and athletics directors know how real the money is with regard to NIL. What they need to understand is that they now must run their athletics organizations as true businesses by taking real responsibility for what’s going on, and living with the consequences of their actions, or lack thereof. Aggressive, radical change needs to take place, but academia doesn’t do radical change. Regardless, they’re now running a business, whether they like it or not."

    >> Reality Check: "This competitor organization will need an empowered, independent executive committee that has true autonomy and authority to make decisions. The committee cannot be affiliated with any team, school or league. Its members must be impartial, and all of the teams, schools and leagues will need to agree to abide by their decisions. These executives must have an understanding of strategy and how to execute it. Most important, they need to possess the absolute courage to do what they believe is in the best interest of college athletics. It requires organizational ability, communication and diplomacy, but college athletics has these in abundance."

    >> Of Note: "It’s easy to imagine a world where a new organization takes on the role of organizing college sports, while the NCAA continues to exist and serves a new role: It could offer educational resources and legal advice, and monitor market conditions, serving as more of a trade organization for athletics departments. Competition is good; it’s the whole point of sports. So why don’t we employ competition much the same way we organize collegiate sports?"

    >> The Final Word: "I’ve always respected the NCAA. But I couldn’t be more disappointed in its lack of leadership. I couldn’t be prouder to be a small part of college athletics. But we are facing an incredibly serious situation, and we are already dangerously behind. College athletics can’t run things the way they always have. If there’s ever been a time for university leadership to step up, it’s now."

    2.  UHart: DIII Still The Right Move


    by Robert Storace, Hartford Business Journal
     

    "The University of Hartford Board of Regents’ decision in May 2021 to transition the school’s athletics program from NCAA Division I to Division III made statewide news and drew the ire and outrage of some students, alum and sports fans.

    It even led to a student-led lawsuit claiming UHart “reneged on its commitment” to student-athletes.

    Nearly a year later — and in the midst of a new five-year strategic plan — UHart President Gregory Woodward, who faced the brunt of the controversy, anger and outcry, said he stands by the decision to move to Division III because it’s in the best long-term interests of the school."

    >> Court Awareness: "In March, the NCAA officially approved the transition, which will happen no later than Sept. 1, 2025. The decision to move to Division III came on the heels of a university-sponsored study on the matter."

    >> Coming Up: "The school’s 17 athletic programs are currently competing in Division I but are not in a conference, while they await the move to Division III in a few years."

    >> What They're Saying: “The Division III intercollegiate athletics model better aligns with the university’s mission and goals of creating exceptional academic athletes and wellness experiences for all students," said Woodward."
