UltimateSportsInsider.com moving to Peoria


The home office for UltimateSportsInsider.com is moving to Peoria, Illinois as of January 1, 2010.  The reason for the move is that I have been named Bradley University's Director of Athletics. 

There is an incredible amount of closure that needs to happen at Princeton and even more preparation that needs to happen before my arrival in Peoria.  Because of this, the frequency of my posting will decrease in the near future as I transition between the institutions. 

I appreciate your readership and patience during the transition and look forward to continuing to provide updates when possible.  I encourage you to become a subscriber to the site (using the easy sign up box near the top of www.ultimatesportsinsider.com) so that we can continue to discuss the national issues related to intercollegiate athletics.

Hofstra University Dropping Football


Hofstra University has just announced the decision to drop football.  The decision was made after a unanimous vote by the Hofstra Board of Trustees.  The program had been in existence since 1937. 

The following link provides more information about the decision.

ESPN also has coverage of the decision.

The savings will be allocated to academic initatives and need based financial aid.
