IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum (Dec. 10-11)

On December 10th and 11th, Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily will host the seventh annual IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum at the InterContinental, The Barclay in New York City.

A "must-attend" for anyone involved in the business of college sports, the IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum is the one-time each year the NCAA leadership, athletic directors, university presidents, conference commissioners, media partners and corporate sponsors collectively discuss their mutual issues in college sports. It is also a great networking opportunity for those interested in pursuing a career in collegiate athletics. I am looking forward to participating on a panel with representatives speaking on behalf of the NCAA, the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, the University of Texas and the Fantasy Sports Association. We will be discussing the unauthorized commercial exploitation of student-athletes by corporate conglomerates profiting from the sale of fantasy sports league products.

The agenda and registration information can be found at the above link.

$1095 academic rate? I don't exactly know how to even respond to that.

I say that, in part, because we just got an email from the University president today:

" . . .the University is not immune to forces within the broader economy . . . All units and departments within the University are being asked to reduce discretionary spending. This will undoubtedly impact items such as travel; attendance at conferences . . "

yes, it is simply too much to ask for the universities to dip in to their huge endowments to survive tough times... it has to be at the expense of the students who pay ever increasing tution and fees....

both rates are too high, even for IMG and SBJ!
