    Hey, we can afford our own jerseys just fine, thank you.

    Let's save money by hiring a highly paid consultant!

    The goal here is simple: envision teams with phenomenal accountability and responsibility for infrastructure and business lines.
    That makes about as much sence as cutting games to save money.

    ...This doesn't mean that they won't reduce the hockey season, but it does send a message that reducing the hockey season won't do too much to achieve the cost-cutting that they have in mind. We will need to see how the Championships and Sport Management Cabinet, which meets in June, reacts to what happened at this week's Leadership Council meeting.
    Hard to believe that the NCAA may be thinking in a much more healthy long-term mode than how organizations like this usually think, about 5 minutes ahead time more often than not. But yes, good news if they do take a large overview and approach cost cutting as something that cannot always be done in the most meaningful way if they just consider the quickest fixes available.

    thanks as always for being on top of this stuff Alton. Always interesting, always good for us to have some idea about what is going on.

    Re: Look out, college hockey: The NCAA has noticed us again.

    The cost-saving proposals, including the reduced length of the hockey season and the reduced maximum number of contests, were discussed by the scary-sounding NCAA Leadership Council earlier this week.

    http://web1.ncaa.org/web_files/DI_MC...with%20att.pdf

    I don't know exactly what to make of their brief summary, but I suspect that it is fairly good news:

    "The leadership council reviewed a list of possible cost savings measures recommended by various Division I cabinets...The Council noted that many of the recommendations appear to address 'low-hanging fruit' and it may be wiser to take a more global approach when attempting to address spending in intercollegiate athletics. The Council recommended that staff collect additional data regarding actual spending areas and, with the possible help of consultants, develop a set of principles that could guide a review of spending."

    I am interpreting this to mean that proposals like cutting the hockey season were not taken very seriously by the Leadership Council, and they wanted to see more "global" ideas about cutting costs.

    The recommendation that additional studies be done, and that they possibly hire consultants, just to "develop principles that could guide a review" suggests that any changes are off in the future, and that they will probably not be sport-specific recommendations.

    This doesn't mean that they won't reduce the hockey season, but it does send a message that reducing the hockey season won't do too much to achieve the cost-cutting that they have in mind. We will need to see how the Championships and Sport Management Cabinet, which meets in June, reacts to what happened at this week's Leadership Council meeting.

    Thinking about making major changes to the way the season is set up should NOT be done by a committee with only 2 representatives with hockey programs (and non-varsity programs do not count). I can see this doing major damage to college hockey as we know it.

    Any suggestions on how that might be done?

    This is should be a prime agenda item for Paul Kelley and his team at College Hockey Inc, as well other people in the sport to address. College hockey misses little class time with mostly weekend games, and perhaps they can reduce the length of the season by a few weeks without reducing the number contests as a compromise.

    Shorter season: yes
    Fewer contests: no. hell, no.

    Re: Look out, college hockey: The NCAA has noticed us again.

    The NCAA Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet met last week to give preliminary consideration to the cost-cutting proposals. They separated the proposals into a list of 16 items that are "identified for further discussion" and 5 items that were not.

    http://web1.ncaa.org/web_files/DI_Ch...t%20Report.pdf

    Unfortunately, one of the proposals that was identified for further discussion was the proposal to "reduce length of season and number of contests in ice hockey."

    The proposals will be reviewed further at a meeting in June, presumably after the committee is given time to receive feedback on the proposals. Hopefully the college hockey world will step in and express its opinion.

    The other thing that hockey has to deal with: not a single member of the 31-person committee who will be considering this proposal is from a school in those conferences. Only Holy Cross & Princeton have representatives on the cabinet, the other 29 members represent non-hockey schools or conferences.

    Whole department. Basically all sponsorship deals are AD wide.
