What Can Will Hicks Do for Syracuse Football? (; Unsworth)

Syracuse football announced on Friday that longtime strength and conditioning coach Will Hicks is being brought back to serve as SU’s Director of Player Engagement. After being fired by Dino Babers in 2016, the former Scott Shafer S&C specialist had worked with the Varsity Club, the Orange athletic department’s fundraising arm for alums, and was most recently the Director of Development for the ‘Cuse Athletics Fund, the University’s athletic fundraising money pool. (Yes, it’s easy to get all of these things confused because of all the new NIL legislation that’s popped up over the past year).

SU has its own fundraising to do for athletes, the 315 foundation is now up and running and Adam Weitsman is also doing his thing with generous NIL offers for highly-touted recruits. There’s a lot of different cash flows coming in and out. If you are tapped into the world of college athletics, you might’ve seen Miami recently get a slap on the wrist from the NCAA for the Cavinder twins, guards on the ‘Canes women’s basketball team, dining with multi-bajillionaire booster John Ruiz during their transfer portal recruitment process. Obviously, the NCAA is just waving around a flyswatter while blindfolded to try to “enforce policy”… but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Hicks’s main focus, other than avoiding the long but decrepit arm of the NCAA, is to take anything having to do with NIL off the plate of Babers and the Syracuse football coaching staff. The coaches already have a brutal task as is…coach a full season, prep for a bowl game while trying to keep your kids from transferring and find transfers before the spring semester, avoid the coaching carousel, make it through spring practice, manage the April transfer window, summer ball, season. You get the idea. Add on top of that recruiting high schoolers who are now more than ever wooed by cash that can go hand-over-fist over the table, and it’s a dizzying thought.

Shrader to miss spring practice after successful procedure on right arm (PS; $; Leiker)

Syracuse football’s starting quarterback Garrett Shrader will miss the entirety of spring practice after undergoing a successful procedure on his right arm, the program announced Monday.

A source close to the program told that the procedure was specifically on Shrader’s elbow. They could not provide more details on the procedure itself.

Spring practice starts March 21. The spring game is set for April 21.

“I’m disappointed to miss the rest of the spring, but looking forward to rehabbing and getting ready for this upcoming season,” Shrader said in the release.

Shrader captained SU’s offense in 11 and a half games this season, missing six quarters in November with an undisclosed lower body injury. It is currently unknown what his recent procedure on his throwing arm was for and when he suffered the injury that necessitated it.

The Orange have four other quarterbacks rostered currently: Carlos Del Rio-Wilson, JaCobian Morgan, Justin Lamson and Luke MacPhail.

Del Rio-Wilson was the only one among them to see the field in 2022. He appeared in seven games, completing 27 of 51 pass attempts for 342 yards and one touchdown. He had two interceptions.

Syracuse Football: 4-star cornerback with Orange offer unveils his top four (itlh; Adler)

Kenny Woseley II, a 2024 four-star cornerback from Philadelphia, recently trimmed down his list of suitors still in contention to four schools, and unfortunately, Syracuse football didn’t make the cut.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Woseley, a top-200 national prospect in the junior cycle per one of the primary recruiting services, said on Twitter that his top four are a quartet of Big Ten Conference teams – Michigan, Rutgers, Penn State and Nebraska.

Additionally, media reports stated that Woseley plans to make his college decision on Friday, March 3. I’m bummed that the Orange isn’t in the running, but his four finalists are all good programs.

ACC News

FSU, Clemson unhappy with ACC revenue distribution sparks reaction (247sorts; Crawford)

The powers at FSU and Clemson are unhappy about the ACC's current revenue distribution in football, and the widening gap in comparison to other conferences has caused the Seminoles and Tigers to potentially consider a costly exit. FSU athletic director Michael Alford said "something has to change moving forward" for the Seminoles to remain ACC members during a BOT general board meeting Friday, which caused a stir.

The ACC is locked in its current TV deal until 2036. Recent lucrative deals for the Big Ten, SEC and Big 12 are considerably more than the ACC's current contract and the Pac-12 is next in the pecking order. Unless something changes, according to FSU and Clemson, some of the league's members could get harvested by others.

FSU currently represents 70% more viewers than the ACC average and Clemson's not far behind. The numbers show that FSU and Clemson represent 51% of all 4.0 million viewership games in the ACC over from 2014 through 2022.

Here's some of the media's reaction to comments made from the decision-makers at FSU and Clemson.

Biggest realignment news lately: FSU AD basically draws line in sand telling ACC it has to institute an uneven revenue distribution model or FSU is bolting. Don't ask how, watch. This is fairly straightforward. "We have to do something. We are a brand." FSU OUT OF ACC? | Michael Alford speaks on Florida State Seminoles' future with ACC | Warchant #FSU
— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) February 25, 2023

As it stands, FSU makes around $38 million less than Big Ten teams and $30 million less than SEC programs after revenue is dispersed annually through its rights deal with the ACC, according to Noles247.

"We are working every day, the president and I are talking daily about our future," Alford said last week. "We work with the chairman. We have our revenues probably known and probably different options better than nay other athletic department in the country. We go out to 2042 on projected revenues. Hired a consultant to come in and really work with us on it, and evaluating every option that we have going forward. But we have to do something, because we are a brand, and we're a very important brand, and we drive the media value in this conference.

"We're consistently talking to the conference, the president and I are sitting in meetings where we are making sure that they understand our value to this conference, but at the end of the day if something's not done, we can not be $30 million behind every year compared to our peers."

The Grant of Rights runs through 2036. That is a legal doc that gives media rights to the ACC. FSU would be free to leave tomorrow for $120M-ish but would not be able to earn media revenue or possibly even broadcast games until 2036. That’s a matter of more than $350M…

The writing is on the wall and FSU has put the ACC on notice.

It didn’t take long for Clemson to makes its voice heard.

Will Anderson has moved on to the NFL so there’s room for debate now on who the best edge rusher in the country is:

Clemson has extremely bold message for ACC conference (

It’s clear to most people who have been paying attention to college football over the past several years that the Clemson Tigers are one of the most prominent teams and the biggest revenue-generating programs in the ACC conference. Given that, it sounds like Clemson thinks it deserves a bigger cut of the ACC’s revenue.

In fact, in an interview with The Post and Courier, Clemson Tigers athletic director Graham Neff was asked if receiving a greater share of the ACC’s revenue was a “want” or a “need” for Clemson. And he was pretty blunt in his response.

“In all candor, I put it as a need,” Neff said in an interview with The Post and Courier. “We certainly recognize the investment that we’ve continued to make as an institution, in our community, in athletics, namely in football, which certainly drives a lot of value that is important from a television and revenue-generation standpoint.

“Is it time revenue distribution within conferences, or at least the ACC, is done differently? Yeah, I’ve been very active in those conversations within the league and continue to expect to take a leadership role in our desire for that to be a changed circumstance. Urgently.”

Florida State AD Michael Alford wants to challenge ACC revenue sharing (usatoday; Conn)

On Friday, Florida State athletic director Michael Alford spoke with the school’s board of trustees. “Something has to change,” he said according to a report from ESPN’s Adrea Adelson.

The big concern revolves around the media rights of the ACC. Alford believes that the Seminoles should receive a bigger cut of the revenue than what they are currently receiving in the deal that runs through 2036. Based on the current contract, each of the conference’s 14 schools receive an equal 7% share of the revenue.

According to Alford, Florida State contributes 15% of the value to the ACC. So why shouldn’t the Seminoles receive a larger cut? What this could mean is that the school is already looking at life beyond the ACC. But who would be willing to take on FSU? Perhaps it would be in the SEC where the other half of the Sunshine Showdown, the Florida Gators, already reside.

One way to combat the revenue distribution is an uneven split among the 14 schools. The Clemson Tigers and Florida State Seminoles are among the biggest brands that would likely see a larger cut. The Miami Hurricanes and North Carolina Tar Heels could find themselves on that next wave as well. At one time the Virginia Tech Hokies would be among the top brands but the program has fallen off since Frank Beamer’s retirement.

Is a 26-team APAC Coming?

There are rumors of a possible merger between the ACC and the Pac-12 (just rumors at this point).

Assuming the Pac-10 add SMU and San Diego St to get back to 12, would something like this be greater than the sum of its parts?

Forbes reports that following the Pac 12's media negotiations, talks are likely to resume between the Pac 12 & ACC regarding a partnership known as the APAC (Atlantic-Pacific Ath. Conf.) Both conferences believe the merger would lead to greater media deal in 4 yrs time. Would you…

Dismantling College Football, Part 3 (RX; HM)

Dismantling College Football, Part 3

By the early 2000s, every power five (P5) conference had a conference championship game except one (the Big XII). However, starting in 2006, one conference had something the others didn't have - but they would all want it sooner or later. Of course, I'm referring to a conference television network...

In 2006, the Big Ten launched the Big Ten Network (BTN) as a joint venture with Fox. At first it was more of a novelty, with limited distribution, but soon it was clear - this was a money-maker!

Of course, the conference most inclined to compete with the Big Ten in everything is the SEC, but they had a problem: all of their tv sports content was already under contract with either CBS or ESPN. So, in order to create an SEC network, that league would need to expand again.

Fortunately for the SEC, it was around this time that Texas A&M came calling. Just a social call, really (wink, wink!), but it became clear to the SEC folks that the Aggies really wanted out of the Big Texas (err, I mean Big XII) conference. So Texas A&M agreed to join the SEC in 2012, along with Missouri, who also wanted out of the Big XII (although they really wanted to join the Big Ten, but the feeling was not mutual).

That left the Big XII with only eight teams and in serious danger of falling apart. Again, Texas looked at switching conferences, even considering the ACC at one point. However, once again the TV networks came to their rescue. This time it was ESPN, with the offer of a Longhorn Network (LHN) which convinced Texas to stay put.



Rendering shows Micron Technology Inc.'s planned semiconductor fabrication facility in Clay. Micron says the $100 billion plant will create 9,000 jobs over 20 years and four times that many support positions at related suppliers and service companies. (Micron Technology)

How would Micron’s electricity-hogging plant here live with NY’s war on fossil fuels? (PS; Knauss)

Micron Technology’s planned semiconductor fabrication plant in Clay would consume more electricity than the entire state of Vermont.

When fully built, the complex of four chip fabs would use 640 million kilowatt-hours a month, more than enough for 1 million average New York homes.

Micron has promised to buy all that electricity from renewable sources, a promise that reflects New York state’s commitment to have an emission-free electric grid by 2040.

But Micron could find it tough to keep that promise unless the floodgates open to new wind and solar farms.

It’s one of the least-discussed challenges of the Micron project, as New York’s signature economic development success story collides with a major environmental aspiration.

Micron announced in October that it planned to invest up to $100 billion building four giant chip fabs at a 1,400-acre site in Clay. The fabs would employ up to 9,000 people directly and could spin off 40,000 more jobs, state officials said.
