Every Syracuse head coach’s opinion on paying college athletes

first_imgAmong the biggest controversies in sports is the ongoing debate over whether the NCAA should compensate college athletes.Across the country, states are beginning to pass legislation that would force the NCAA to reform its structure and redefine amateurism. In California, the recently passed Fair Pay to Play Act allows college athletes to hire agents and make money off endorsements. That and other ongoing proposals, including in New York, forced the NCAA — which annually reports more than $1 billion in revenue — to respond.In late October, the NCAA’s board of governors unanimously voted to move toward allowing players to profit off their names, image and likeness. Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack said in a statement, “We appreciate and support the NCAA Board of Governors’ recent action that paves the way for student-athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.”As it stands now, college athletes aren’t allowed to receive compensation aside from their scholarships. In 2017, Central Florida’s kicker was ruled ineligible because he made money off his YouTube channel. After the NCAA’s October decision, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim addressed the issue after a preseason scrimmage against Carleton for five minutes and nine seconds, then walked away from the podium without taking follow-up questions. He called the situation a “real difficult puzzle” and said allowing players to profit would stir more inequality and other unintended consequences.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text “It’s a good idea, but it’s a bad idea if it gets to a point where people are getting $20,000 here, $10,000, $15,000, $20,000,” Boeheim said. “If they go here, they’re going to get a $40,000 commercial. Because that’s what’s going to happen.”“I don’t see it,” Boeheim added. “I don’t see how it’s good.”Here’s how the rest of the head coaches at Syracuse see it. Dino Babers, Football“First of all, I think it’s good that people can use their own likenesses for financial gain,” Babers told Brent Axe on ESPN radio in October. “That’s awesome, and kind of the American way.”“From the NCAA standpoint, we gotta be careful, because it’s going to be really interesting how they balance it out for everyone,” Babers said in that interview. “Because if you’re talking about a quarterback or running back getting benefits, you know, it’s interesting that they probably wouldn’t get those benefits if it wasn’t for an O-lineman.John Desko, Men’s Lacrosse“I guess we’ve talked about that a little bit, not a lot because I’m not sure it would affect our sport,” Desko said. “I’m not so sure how many would pay for the likeness of a lacrosse player, but I’m sure maybe there’s a couple locally that would be interested. But it’s all speculation for me at this point.”Gary Gait, Women’s Lacrosse“I actually haven’t even thought about it, so it doesn’t affect our team. So haven’t even worried about it, haven’t really put any time into that,” Gait said.Quentin Hillsman, Women’s Basketball“The hard thing about college is this: You come to college, and you’re an athlete, and you work hard, play for your university,” Hillsman said.“I have no problem with players being compensated fairly. And I believe in that. I think that some of the things that they’re doing for cost of attendance and things like that has accomplished that. So, whatever the powers that be rule on that, I’m good with it,” Hillsman said.Nicky Adams, Women’s SoccerAdams has been involved in college sports for more than 20 years. As a player in the late-1990s, Adams led Texas A&M to two Big 12 titles and was nominated for the Herman Award — the women’s soccer version of the Heisman Trophy — twice.Despite her experience, Adams said she doesn’t have a strong opinion on the issue, calling it a “crazy topic where there’s so much that goes into it.”“We’re still trying to figure everything out,” Adams said.Brien Bell, Cross Country/Track and FieldBell said his view aligns with Wildhack and he takes the university’s stance on the issue. When asked about the proposed legislation in New York that would pay college athletes evenly based on each athletic department’s annual revenue, Bell had no comment.Ange Bradley, Field HockeyBradley has been coaching college field hockey since 1991, but she said she’s “really not familiar with the rules or laws” of paying college athletes. Bradley noted that paying players is “beyond what we do,” but “to have an education is an outstanding opportunity for anyone in life.”As a non-revenue sport, field hockey likely wouldn’t be a sport significantly affected by college athletes being able to profit off their names, images and likenesses. The proposed legislation in New York, though, would make Bradley’s players compensated just as much as Boeheim’s. Still, Bradley said she hasn’t thought about that possibility. Paul Flanagan, Ice Hockey“I don’t look at it probably like coach Boeheim, coach Babers and coach Desko, I guess. In our sport I don’t think it’s that much of an issue. So, do I think that some of these kids in these more high-profile sports are deserving of some type of remuneration? I don’t know,” Flanagan said.Flanagan added: “You look at a school like ours, or just down the road a school like Colgate, that’s got all these Division I sports, how are schools going to do it financially?… In some way shape or form some of these elite athletes, they’re rewarded eventually…I think that somewhere in there maybe there will be a compromise, but I don’t have the answer to that.”Leonid Yelin, Volleyball “I know what you want to ask, but you know, I don’t even have (an) answer,” Yelin said. “You can ask, but I don’t have – I don’t think so, not me. I don’t think anyone has (an) answer (right) now.”“I’m just telling you in the future. You can ask anyone (on the team). I can tell you, nobody is going to give you an answer just because nobody knows (the solution),” Yelin said.Shannon Doepking, Softball“I think softball is so far off from that, that it is not really something that we think about, to be honest. I think softball is just a different beast in its own that it is not something that I think is going to affect us in any way,” Doepking said. “So honestly, it is not something that I think about ever.”Younes Limam, Tennis “Quite honestly, right now, we have more things to worry about,” Limam said. “I haven’t really thought about it too much.”Dave Reischman and Luke McGee, Men’s and Women’s RowingReischman “respectfully” declined to comment, and McGee did not respond when asked whether college athletes should get paid.Syracuse men’s soccer head coach Ian McIntyre could not be reached for comment.

Dodgers following pattern with innings limits for young pitchers

first_imgRoss Stripling didn’t allow a hit for 7 1/3 innings in his major league debut in April. He was removed after throwing his 100th pitch. Stripling, in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, went to extended spring training in May to preserve his innings.Jose De Leon, a 23-year-old pitcher currently with Oklahoma City, spent the first month of the season in extended spring training. One hundred pitches seems to be the ceiling at Double-A Tulsa; no one has cracked it in a game this season. At advanced Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, 22-year-old pitching prospect Josh Sborz is limited to four innings per start for the remainder of the season. The low Single-A Great Lakes Loons recently used four pitchers in a game, none of whom threw less than two or more than three innings.Willie Calhoun, a second baseman at Double-A Tulsa, acknowledged he’s had some are-we-even-trying-to-win-the-game thoughts too.“A little bit,” he said, “but I try to let (manager Ryan) Garko take care of that. I trust him — which is good.”Around baseball, the mandate to protect young pitchers’ arms didn’t happen overnight.Four years ago, Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg was 23 years old and pitching his first full season following Tommy John surgery. Though healthy, Strasburg never appeared in a game after Sept. 7, having pitched 159 1/3 innings to that point in the season.That was a particularly tough pill to swallow for the 2012 Nationals, who ultimately lost a five-game Division Series to the St. Louis Cardinals with Strasburg on the bench. Speaking at the All-Star Game in San Diego this week, Strasburg admits it “took a few years” for him to make peace with the decision.“At the time I was pretty frustrated,” he said. “Looking back on it now, with the direction the organization’s going, how it’s built for the long haul, I think it’s kind of a tough call — strike when the iron’s hot or potentially deal with the consequences of it?”Ideally, limiting the workloads of Stripling, Urias, De Leon and others now will avoid a Strasburg-like scenario later. Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said there is no “blanket rule” for usage that applies to every pitcher in the organization, but the end result is the same: Stripling, Urias and De Leon might be available to pitch for the Dodgers in September and October, if needed. On the other end of the spectrum are those who deride lighter workloads as harmful and overprotective. In a March interview, Hall of Famer pitcher Goose Gossage claimed that pitch-count limits have led directly to injuries. “The first thing a pitcher does when he comes off the mound is ask: ‘How many pitches do I have?’ If I had asked that f—ing question, they would have said: ‘Son, get your ass out there on that mound. If you get tired, we’ll come and get you’,” Gossage told ESPN.This philosophy has fallen out of favor. In Gossage’s last full season, 1993, eight pitchers threw a total of 250 innings or more. In the last 10 years combined, only three pitchers have reached the 250-inning mark: Justin Verlander (2011), Roy Halladay (2010) and C.C. Sabathia (2008).Friedman believes the egg came before the chicken — that is, the injuries led to innings limits, not the other way around.“A lot of the pitch counts and innings limits were born out of the increase in arm injuries,” he said. “We understood and appreciated all that we don’t know. Teams tend to err on the side of caution.”Even so, Friedman insists he doesn’t intend to shatter the classic model of the “staff workhorse.”“You can definitely build guys up in a methodical way to put 200 to 250 innings on their body,” he said.What will that method look like? The answer is playing out across the minor leagues right now.An underrated obstacle to this process — and a major flaw in Gossage’s theory — is that pitchers who throw more innings at a younger age can thwart any team’s best efforts. By the time a pitcher is drafted (typically between the ages of 17 and 22), there’s no telling how many innings he’s thrown, or whether his body was strong enough to withstand the workload. A pitcher can be run into the ground before a major league organization prescribes its innings limit.Urias is special in this regard, too. The Dodgers have been able to control his workload since his age-16 season — that’s how young Urias was when he threw his first pitch for Great Lakes. He threw 54 1/3, 87 2/3 and 80 1/3 innings his first three professional seasons, not including spring training games.Earlier this week, the National Federation of State High School Associations told members (including California) to adopt a rule regulating the number of pitches a high school pitcher can throw in a game. Maybe the rules regarding pitcher workload will trickle up, too.Scott Boras, Urias’ agent, has an idea of what that might look like.“I think we’re going to have to develop in this business a way to have a pitcher on the roster who can throw 120 innings his first year, 150 the next year, and then get him up to where he can throw 180,” Boras said. “To do that we need a 26th man. Someone has to cover those innings. I think we’re going to find that it’s economically advisable — and great for the development of the young players — to have great talent in the big leagues at a young age but understand you can only use it within limits.” Urias’ usage might be the most prominent example of an evolving trend, one with broad implications — not just for the Dodgers’ top prospect but his teammates, other minor league prospects, and even the future of major league pitching staffs.Jharel Cotton has spent the entire 2016 season on the Oklahoma City roster. Speaking at the Futures Game last weekend in San Diego, he said that watching Urias pitch “is a fun sight to see.” Sometimes that makes Urias’ innings limit difficult to accept.Cotton was asked if he ever wonders whether the Dodgers are trying to win when Urias is yanked in the middle of a shutout. He paused.“I’m so used to hearing that he’s a young guy, 19 years old in Triple-A, I guess I’m stuck on that,” Cotton said. “The kid’s going to be around for a long time. I think it’s going to be a big, long career as a big leaguer. I guess they’re trying to protect him. I don’t know.”It isn’t just Urias. The Dodgers use some variation on an innings or pitches limit at every level of the organization. The Oklahoma City Dodgers were leading the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, 1-0, after six innings of their Pacific Coast League game on May 9. Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias was firmly in command, scattering four hits and three walks in the thin Rocky Mountain air.Urias has usually dominated in Triple-A this year, but this game was special. Security Service Field in Colorado Springs sits at 6,531 feet above sea level, believed to be the highest elevation of any professional ballpark in the United States. In a place where earned-run averages go to die, Urias reached a new height — literally and figuratively.Once Urias was out, the Sky Sox scored seven runs in the seventh inning to put the game out of reach. Oklahoma City lost 7-3. For the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate, this situation was hardly unique.Five times this season Urias has been removed from a shutout with no more than six innings or 85 pitches on his ledger. The 19-year-old left-hander, ever the good soldier, never complains about his workload restriction. He is currently parked in the Oklahoma City bullpen as the Dodgers hope to preserve his remaining innings for later in the season. (He’s currently up to 78 1/3.)center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Penge doubles up in the Lincolnshire sunshine

first_img Marco Penge extended his remarkable season by becoming the English Boys under 16 and under 15 champion in the heat of Seacroft Golf Club on the Lincolnshire coast.Final day rounds of 67 and 73 gave the Sussex youngster a 72-hole aggregate of 283, one under par, and a three stroke winning margin from his England colleague Bradley Moore and Lincolnshire’s own Billy Spooner.Taking both titles meant Penge (image copyright Leaderboard Photography) has collected four titles this year but the most significant to date is the under 16 McGregor Trophy as it means he is a national champion and joins an illustrious Roll of Honour that includes the likes of Justin Rose and several other who have gone on to be tour professionals.“It’s been a great year for me so far,” said Penge. “But this is big. It’s a national title and follows my win in the Fairhaven. “But I didn’t play great this week. I wasn’t good off the tee, I was just trying to get it down the fairway but my short game was good.“Perhaps I was a bit rusty as I’ve played a lot of golf recently. I had a lesson on Saturday with Ryan Fenwick at Goodwood after last week’s European Boys Team Championships and I’m off to Germany on Sunday for the European Young Masters.”Penge began the day one shot off the lead but a morning 67 took him ahead and despite a few wobbles in his 73, he managed to stay there. “I got off to a good start and was two under after three holes this afternoon,” he added.“But I bogeyed the fourth and sixth holes to be out in 36. But then I found a trap off the 11th tee and made another bogey followed by another dropped shot at the 13th but I managed to par in from there.”Moore, one of four players sharing the lead before the final two rounds, shot a morning 70 to lie one behind Penge but a closing 74, which included two double bogeys on the front nine and another at the tenth, left him disappointed.“I knew after 14 holes that I was two behind but it was my putting that let me down,” said the lad from Derbyshire. “I just couldn’t hole anything again and that has been my problem this week.”But for an opening 77, Spooner would have taken the title back to Lincolnshire for the first time since Jim Payne in 1987. But the Boston lad played the last three rounds in four under par, the best of the 45 players that made the cut. He deserves his joint second place for that alone, his closing 69 meant he caught Moore over the final stretch.Ireland’s Peter Kerr moved up the leaderboard with a morning 70 before a closing 73 earned him a share of fourth place on 288 with Essex-based Louis Lazarus, who also returned a closing 69.But the best round of the afternoon, a 68, was posted by John Axelsen, the young Dane who set a course record 66 in round one. He followed that with a disastrous 82 in the wind of day two but the 68 restored a smile to the young man’s face as he finished in a share of sixth place on 291. 18 Jul 2013 Penge doubles up in the Lincolnshire sunshine last_img read more
