  3. https://www.ntdaily.com/news/harrison-keller-ceo-of-texas-board-for-higher-education-announced-as-universitys-sole-finalist-for/article_d9766b04-24ee-11ef-affc-5f0690f46485.html Today at the University System's Board of Regents meeting, Harrison Keller was announced as the sole finalist for the position of the University of North Texas' president. Keller, the Commissioner of Higher Education and CEO of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, would potentially replace current president Neal Smatresk in August. After at least 21 days following the announcement, the Board of Regents may decide to select Keller as the new president.
  4. I don’t think we could afford to buy out his contract after 2 years. But I agree, his hire has been highlighted by poor recruiting and mistakes.
  5. This is gross to me. Hope he chooses UNT but this list is just silly and over the top woth a jet plane??
  6. Totally agree. Morris has been a big disappointment. Ever since the Cal game. He really blew that one.
  7. Good to hear. Hope he cares about athletics.
  8. I would hope they give him another shot if he indeed wants to return.
  9. In Mississippi, for instance, university and collective leaders led a campaign this spring to change their state statute to permit such a move. In Missouri, a state law has existed for more than a year permitting the school’s collective to receive institution funds for distribution to athletes. Other states, as well as the collectives within those states, are marching toward a similar goal, said Walker Jones, a former agent and apparel executive who leads the Ole Miss collective, The Grove. On July 1, The Grove will transition from a booster-funded collective to a school-financed third-party agency. “Our major gift donors will be thrilled to death with it,” Jones said. “Now, the money, instead of only coming from John Doe’s pocket, also comes from the university. We then go hunt out deals for the athletes and get them active in the community to satisfy [NIL agreements].” Hibbs says this method is “the best of both worlds.” In this new model, funding for a roster would mostly move within the university, where donors receive tax deductions and priority points for required donations as part of their football season ticket packages — not the case with collectives. link: https://sports.yahoo.com/the-next-evolution-of-nil-collectives-and-the-battles-that-await-this-is-a-big-inflection-point-120051261.html
  10. In the new NIL era how should UNT athletics be focused?
  11. He committed to Troy and then switched to us. But now he reneged on us and has signed with New Mexico State. Really sucks for us to start losing guys at the last minute to State.
  12. On the brink of a historic settlement decision, the NCAA is facing pushback from one of its most prestigious basketball conferences. In an email Saturday to her members, Big East commissioner Val Ackerman expressed “strong objection” to the NCAA’s proposal on how it is determining back damages related to the consolidated settlement in the House, Hubbard and Carter antitrust cases. And she is seeking ways to “alter the plan that the NCAA and A5 have orchestrated,” she writes in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo Sports. The settlement, in the final stages of adoption, consists of three main concepts: back damages owed to former athletes ($2.77 billion); revenue-sharing for current and future athletes (upward of $22 million annually per school); and an overhaul of a variety of NCAA elements, including scholarship and roster limits, governance structure and enforcement arm. Over a 10-year payback period, the NCAA is responsible for paying 40% of the $2.77 billion with the other 60% coming from a reduction in school distributions. To determine how much each of the 32 Division I conferences contribute, the association created a formula based on the amount of distribution that a league earned over a nine-year period starting in 2016, according to separate documents shared with commissioners. Most of the distribution that the NCAA divides among leagues— more than $700 million annually — is derived from revenues of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Under the formula, the Big East will be responsible for about $5 million to $7 million annually, or as much as $70 million over the next decade — a figure that works out to about $600,000-$700,000 per school per year. “Based on the numbers we have reviewed, the liability of the 22 non-FBS conferences under the proposed formula appears disproportionately high, particularly because the primary beneficiaries of the NIL ‘back pay’ amounts are expected to be FBS football players,” Ackerman wrote. “I have voiced the Big East's strong objections to the proposed damages framework through recent emails to [NCAA president] Charlie Baker and his counsel and through comments during commissioner calls over the past two weeks.” Read more: https://sports.yahoo.com/ncaas-settlement-proposal-facing-strong-objection-from-big-east-194238228.html
  13. Everything he says is true. It will impact Texas Tech and many others at that level as it does us.
  14. Agreed! Calmer heads will prevail.
  15. Best available talent all things being equal a pg.
  16. If this group stays healthy, I will come out and say it right now, we could be a LOT better. We have more size and more guards that can handle the ball in my estimation. Fantastic job by Hodge. Wish I could say the same for football.
