Mitch Barnhart named to NCAA’s Council of Athletic Directors


NCAA President Mark Emmert is building a band of athletic directors and Mitch Barnhart is one of the band members. Emmert recently announced that he and some of his staff members will meet regularly with a council of athletic directors, beginning next month. Barnhart is one of 10 athletic directors who will make up the council, formed to shift decisions like recruiting rules from college presidents to the people who deal with coaching staffs and athletic programs directly.

The other nine members of the council come from San Jose State, Arizona, Kansas State, Central Michigan, Connecticut, Clemson, Ohio State, Division I-AA Montana State, and Division I-AAA Denver.

    Does UConn or for that matter Ohio State really belong on this list? Further, what can Montana State and Denver add to the discussion?

    Drugs, tatoos, planking, and the Harlem shake………. four things I can look back on through the years and be thankful I did not participate.

    Dear ksr writers,
    Please realize the images you put on this site are nothing special, and most assuredly won’t be used by anyone else.
    The time is now to stop putting your names at the bottom of these images – because lets face it, Adobe is not coming through that door.

    Jurich is the so called best AD in college sports, why wasn’t he named? Truth be told, it’s because he has all kinds of enemies in the business.

    Ironically, I was listening to ” The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground. I encourage you to do the same, it fits so well!

    Unfortunately, this isn’t flattering to Mitch. The NCAA as an organization is as corrupt as the filth in Washington DC, and to be invited by a crook like Emmert is to be tainted by association. And if he’s not tainted, then the risk to Mitch will be to become so.
