there could be worse 2nd or 3rd choices but,Still on team Phillips, but.......
Is Oliver Luck a potential option to be the next Big Ten commissioner? Should the B1G hire Luck? Who will the conference make commissioner?www.outkick.com
choice 1a - PhillipsHard for me to comprehend why there hasn't been more talk - on this board or others - about the B1G Commissioner search... strange ! ! !
Article (Barta): "we don't want the same kind of Hollywood-style commissioner as the Big 12 and Pac 12".“Television is No. 1,” Gary Barta told The Gazette, as the Big Ten searches for its next commissioner.www.thegazette.com
choice 1a - Phillips
choice 1b - Phillips
choice 1c - Phillips
I think the B1G still has to go through the motions of interviewing other people, just for appearances sake.
In the meantime, Phillips isnt going anywhere.
I believe that is the main reason for lack of discussion on it.
Replying to my own comment b/c 15 mins has passed. Why not get just a ‘professional CEO’ that understands business? Ya know, the type that goes from company to company and is always CEO, even though it’s a different industry.Seems conference commissioners come from a plethora of backgrounds. Most, to my knowledge have some sort of understanding or experience with athletics/athletic administration. Preference I would think a marketing background currently would be nice. That being said….
I have almost ZERO understanding, even of the big 10 after Delany, what the commissioners actually do (besides give Michigan an bball conf championship). Are they puppets for school presidents? Athletic directors? Just a face? Marketing experts? Negotiators? Some combination therein? Do they want something similar to the past or more ‘forward looking’? Seems we already know where the, football at least, lens is going and going to be for the foreseeable future. Is an ‘innovator’ even necessary?
Dunno, I was having a conversation with a very knowledgeable football guy, and both of us realized we weren’t really sure
