FCS Playoffs – ever wonder how they do it?

Well, we did too….

With all of the conversation about the “so-called” money bowls and how they can’t afford nor have time to expand to a full-fledged playoff… Well, there is a Division I football division that does just that….

VAC365-TPOS

FCS — or Division I-AA, which is what us older people like me will call it until the day we die — has been running a championship tournament for its football teams for years. This year, in fact, is the 35th anniversary of the tournament, which is now called the NCAA Division I Football Championship.

The single-elimination FCS playoff includes 24 teams. Ten of them are auto-bids as winners of 10 of the FCS’ 13 conferences.

NOTE: The Ivy League, SWAC, and MEAC don’t take playoff auto-bids.

The field shrinks from 24 to 16 after the first round, and then it’s pretty simple: whoever wins four games in a row wins the national championship. The tournament field is selected by a NCAA appointed committee made up of athletic directors from select FCS schools that represent each region of the country.

The rest of the 12 teams in the field are unseeded, and teams are usually matched up based on regional proximity, with hosting rights granted based on bidding and projected gate receipts, as well as record, conference affiliation and strength of schedule. If two unseeded teams meet in subsequent rounds of the playoff tournament, the team that presents the highest monetary bid to the NCAA is awarded hosting rights.

One interesting scenario is the higher-ranked teams host a home-field game until the finals. WHAT??? And the playoff runs through Jan. 7, when it ends at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

The eight FCS automatic playoff bids are awarded to the conference champion of the following conferences:

-Big Sky Conference
-Colonial Conference
-Mid East Athletic Conference
-Missouri Valley Conference (formerly the Gateway Conference)
-Ohio Valley Conference
-Patriot League
-Southern Conference
-Southland Conference

Athletic Scholarships Cover What

Student-Athletics Scholarships cover what???

November 7, 2016

PrezRo

In short, Divisions I and II athletics scholarships are awarded in a variety of amounts and categories: Full, Partial, Academic, and a mix.

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Now according to NCAA, full scholarships cover tuition and fees, room, board and course-related books. Most student-athletes who receive athletics scholarships receive an amount covering a portion of these costs. Many student-athletes also benefit from academic scholarships, NCAA financial aid programs such as the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund and need-based aid such as Federal Pell Grants.

Division I schools may provide student-athletes with multiyear scholarships. Additionally, Division I schools may pay for student-athletes to finish their bachelor’s or master’s degrees after they finish playing NCAA sports.

If a school plans to “reduce or not renew” a student-athlete’s aid, the school must notify the student-athlete in writing by July 1 and provide an opportunity to appeal. In most cases, coaches decide who receives a scholarship, the scholarship amount and whether it will be renewed.

Please note this important fact…. “full ride” is NOT automatic! Full-ride scholarships are actually annual contracts, renewable by the institution from year- to- year, not guarantees of four years of financial support based on past accomplishments. One need only survey the college football landscape to see examples of star players who have been kicked out of the athletic program or, worse, out of school to understand the fragility of full-ride scholarships.

VAC365-TPOS

Building Men & Women via Athletics

 

 

 

While Athletic Full-time Scholarships are High Profile, They Are Exceedingly Rare

It is estimated that over 600,000 high school seniors play head count sports. An even larger number play equivalency sports. About $1 billion in athletic scholarship money is awarded annually to approximately 130,000 student- athletes. However, only about 25,000 scholarships are available for incoming freshmen. The math isn’t promising. Therefore, it may not be wise for a family to rely solely on the possibility of their child being awarded a “full ride” to cover the costs of getting a college education.

There are however some other steps a family can take. One is to investigate the availability of academic and merit scholarships offered by each school. The student should also meet with the dean or administrator at his or her school responsible for assisting those seniors engaged in the process of applying for college. There are also research grants and essay contests for additional educational funding opportunities. Finally, to avoid any potential problems, contact should be made with the school(s) being considered and the athletic associations to which they belong for details about the regulations and requirements they may have regarding eligibility and financial aid.

Student- athletes planning on college should not rely solely on “assurances” that he or she should have no problem receiving a full ride. Managing expectations should be a priority for any family who dares to dream that their son or daughter may be awarded an athletic scholarship.

Are you unsure if your sport offers full-ride scholarships? Do you know what the average scholarship amount is for college athletes in your sport? Leave your questions in the comments section below, and we can answer them right away. We are also available on Facebook, Twitter, and Email!

It’s probably unfair to blame social media specifically, but I think it’s safe to say that the 24/7 media barrage of soundbites we face every day could be taking its toll. Twitter users need to make their point in 140 characters or less, CNN, MSNBC and others have shortened stories to be quickly transmitted to the masses.

VAC365-TPOS

Haven’t you noticed, conversations lasting over five minutes is met with glazed eyes and shuffling feet, not to mention the ol’ grabbing of the smartphone and thumbin’ through it a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g.

attnetion-span1

Now I’ll be the first to admit that if we really want the ears, eyes and attention of our audience, we need to make sure that our message is interesting and very interactive. This is particularly true in the workplace. How many times have you sat in a meeting where three or four of the people attending open up their laptop, tap away on their iPad or distractedly thumb through emails on their smart phones? Although the problem may sometimes be the meeting, even in the midst of important discussions, I’ve watched colleagues allow themselves to be distracted by emails, text messages, as well as social media platforms, and other work they perceive is more important—only to find out later that it wasn’t.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of social media and technology. I’m convinced that we should be leveraging all the potential technology tools at our disposal to create collaborative environments where people can contribute to something worthwhile and perform at a higher level. However, I’m not a fan of how technology seems to dumb-down our collective ability to focus on the things that are really important.

attnetion-span2

Step Away From the iPhone

I have to admit a secret of mine… in the middle of a conversations, I’ll simply stop talking to make sure whoever I’m talking to is paying attention if I’m talking to them and they are using their smartphone adn not paying attention.

Over the last couple of months, meetings I have called and conducted could unofficially be designated as technology free. How? I try to keep these meetings short, simple and to the point, as well as interactive.

I do this to avoid the temptation to multitask (which studies have determined to be a pipe-dream, since we can’t focus on more than one thing at a time anyway and multitasking is OVERRATED), where laptops, smartphones and iPads remain out of sight and untouched during the course of the discussion unless we need to secure a date. We were able to focus on the discussion at hand, we accomplished the objectives of those meetings with minimal distraction and there was no question regarding follow-up items – very productive

Although it might feel like it, keeping the technological soundbite barrage at bay long enough for people to have intelligent conversations about the things that really matter doesn’t require the earth to stop rotating on its axis. Here are a few more suggestions:

1. Don’t let the immediacy of the medium dictate the quality of the conversation. I’m not a big fan of “text-speak” abbreviations. Even in my text messages, I try to communicate in complete sentences and thoughts. I do the same on Twitter and Facebook. It takes a little more work, but not much. It also takes the guesswork out of interpreting what I’m trying to say. Particularly in the workplace, if we have to dumb-down the level of dialog to suit any particular communication medium, maybe we should choose another outlet for the conversation. Maybe even a real conversation?

2. Listen more, speak less. Abraham Lincoln said, “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” How much time do you spend listening verses speaking? In every conversation are you thinking more about what you are going to say next, or are you really listening to what’s being said? I’ve known far too many people who love the sound of their own voices. Listen more, speak less.

3. Technology is not a substitute for real relationships. Technology is intended to enhance our ability to collaborate, not replace the need for personal interaction. As valuable as these tools are, if we don’t foster real and productive relationships with people it will be difficult for organizations to achieve any measurable level of success. Leadership requires making a personal connection with people. Technology can’t do that.

4. Live in the moment. At the risk of sounding a little new-age-ie, if you’re in a meeting, be in the meeting; if you’re in a conversation, be in the conversation; if you are on a date, be on that date. Does anyone check text, emails, social media, during private adult time? Hhhhmmmm
Bottom line is don’t let distractions pull you away from what’s happening right now. The phone chirping can wait—they’ll either leave a message or call you back. The message will still be there when the moment is over.

5. Never meet just to meet. I have often wondered how much time I’ve wasted in standing meetings that had no real purpose. Regularly scheduled meetings are important, but if you are responsible for a regularly scheduled meeting and their is no real reason to meet, cancel that instance of the meeting and wait for another day.

6. And finally, go low-tech once in a while. I will admit that I can type notes during a meeting faster than I can write them down. There is nothing wrong with taking notes in a meeting or discussion. Plus, whoever is leading the meeting doesn’t wonder if I’m really engaged—they can’t misinterpret my tapping on the keyboard as something it isn’t. It’s obvious that I’m engaged in the discussion.

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Listening, paying attention and engaging fully in every conversation or communication creates an atmosphere where everyone can effectively collaborate, people can contribute to something meaningful and organizations can leverage the strengths of everyone in the organization toward a successful outcome.

Best Way to make an impact as a freshmen

How to make an impact as a freshmen student-athlete?

August 11, 2016

PrezRo
compiled by Prez Ro
follow back at @PrezRo365

Q: What’s the best way to make an impact as a freshman in college?

Rule #1 – as an athlete, let your actions speak louder than your words! College coaches make a million promises during the recruiting process, understand it won’t be as easy for you as they’ve made it sound. There will be adjustments and tough times, but they brought you there for a reason and believe in you!

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

Some first year tips…

#1- Have a great attitude, be someone that your teammates and coaches want to be around. Too many freshmen get frustrated and bitter too quickly over playing time issues – most often, even before pre-season camp is over. This is a process, enjoy the ride. Your freshman year will be over quick! It’s not about how quickly you start your career, but what you are able to accomplish over your entire career. Have a great attitude while developing during your first year as a collegiate athlete!

#2- Understand there are opportunities every day! Practice is your biggest opportunity, along with understanding the playbook, film review, position meetings. Learn the system and develop your position skills—and don’t feel overlooked if you aren’t starting or playing a ton of minutes (or at all) yet. Get an advantage with the Xs and Os. Learn to do things your head coach’s way! Rather focusing just on playing time and stats, focus on EVERY opportunity you have to showcase your skills.

#3- The film doesn’t lie, let it be a great reflection of your skills, speed and maturity. Coaches want how you behave on the sideline—be about business when at practice and meetings, even if you are on the sideline or third-string. Coaches watch everyone, all the time, and how you behave when you think they aren’t watching does play a role in their overall picture of your maturity.
#4- Do the dirty work others won’t. Rebounds, blocking, helping set the play up, etc. Players worry about stats, starts and how many touches they get—what can you do without the ball in your hand to help the team? Ask your coaches! If you aren’t playing, always have a positive energy on the sideline and be your team’s biggest cheerleader. There are always ways you can help your team—be a positive force any way that you can.

#5- The biggest problem for freshmen is time management. Be where you’re supposed to be, when you’re supposed to be there—and be there 5 minutes early. Being late for class, study hall, meetings, training room treatments, film, workouts and practice all likely result in punishment. Do what is asked of you the first time and being where you’re supposed to be can make things much smoother for you during your freshman year!

One shock to me was the Super Bowl 50 winners, Denver Broncos, as they feel hard even with a dominant defense. But New England again at the top? Then Carolina? Hhhhmmmmm  Steelers & the Chiefs at 85 – really?

And being a born and raised Bear fan, I’m a little pissed off with my teams rating but at least we’re NOT last 🙂 right Cleveland!

Oh well… it’s almost game time as the march to Super bowl 51 in Houston begins September 8 featuring last years super bowl contest – Panthers at Broncos.

Overall, the conference brought in $448.8 million in total revenue, which divvies up to “roughly $32.4 million to each of its longest-standing 11 members.”

Not too shabby. By comparison, during the same time frame, the SEC brought in $527.4 million to distribute to its 14 members.

The introduction of the College Football Playoff also undoubtedly played a role in the increased revenue.

From USA Today:

The Big Ten annually provides a figure for what it terms “Sports Revenue.” Based on the way the conference categorizes other revenue streams, “Sports Revenue” includes — but is not exclusively comprised of — TV revenue and revenue from football bowl games.

The conference reported about $317 million in “Sports Revenue” in fiscal 2014 and almost $397 million in 2015 — an $80 million difference. Based on reports from other conferences that approximate their bowl revenue increases from the CFP, it is likely that $50 million to $60 million of the Big Ten’s “Sports Revenue” increase is attributable to the TV rights fee increases that resulted from adding Maryland and Rutgers.

In addition,  the Big Ten is working toward a new TV deal. SportsBusiness Journal reported last month that the conference is nearing a $250 million per year agreement with Fox (which owns 51% of Big Ten Network) that would span six years.

The reported deal with Fox, which is said to have outbid ESPN by a significant margin, would cover just half of the league’s overall package. Whether ESPN gets back in the mix for the Big Ten’s remaining media rights (as John Skipper says it wants to) remains to be seen.
