2016 CWS

Postby nebugeater » Wed Oct 07, 2015 7:36 am

The 2016 CWS will see a new primary NCAA contact again for the CWS in Omaha. The person that worked with Dennis Poppe and then replaced him is moving on. Damani Leech is leaving the NCAA for a potion with the NFL.

http://www.omaha.com/sports/cws/damani- ... 38814.html



Damani Leech, whose duties with the NCAA included directing the College World Series, is leaving collegiate athletics for the NFL.
Leech will resign as the NCAA’s managing director of championships and alliances at the end of the month to become the NFL’s vice president for media strategy and business development.
The NFL recruited Leech to fill the new senior level executive position.


Leech’s 17-year tenure at the NCAA included a dozen years of association with the CWS. He served a decade as CWS Director Dennis Poppe’s top lieutenant before taking over in 2014 when Poppe retired.
Leech said the decision to leave the NCAA was difficult.



“I think the CWS is positioned to grow even more,” Leech said. “By grow, I mean enhance the experience for the student-athletes, the teams and the fans. It’s a real, real special event.
“You hear people say that and it sounds cliché, but it really is. The time I’ve been with the NCAA, I’ve had a chance to spend time around a lot of different championship events. There really aren’t many things around that are like the College World Series.”
Leech said his superiors at the NCAA are well aware of that.

1620 Just reported that the NCAA just passed a one year trial approval on selling Alcohol at Baseball and Softball Championship playoff games for this year. That means that you will be able to buy a beer at the CWS. As I heard it this is for the NCAA tourney level and not for Conference tourney but who knows for sure yet.

I am sure they are testing it here and OKC to see if they can be successful doing it at bowl games, and NCAA tourney games.

I agree 100%.

This allows for the door to be opened with an event that is not under the same spotlight and then they can roll it out and say we have been doing it here for X.

It's interesting to see this happen. Selling alcohol has been discussed for years, same as it has for football games at Memorial Stadium. It's getting harder and harder to compete against giant screen tvs, sports bars, fully stocked basement bars, etc.

Not sure how well $8 beers in long concession lines stems that tide, but something needs to be done. The demand for things like Nebraska football and CWS is getting more and more difficult to sustain as the prices go up and the in home/bar experience gets better and better.

20 years ago when I hd a 27 inch tube tv, I would never have thought it would make more sense to stay at home and watch a game. More and more, that's my preferred method of watching sports.

They've already been selling it in the bar on the club level, this is just expanding the availability.

I knew that, but there's a difference between offering it to a small amount of people in the club seats vs. general availability in the stadium. Just like how UNL has been allowing booze in suites for years, but beer in the general stadium hasn't gone past discussion stages. Now, beer at Nebraska football games is another discussion entirely and I'm not saying I'm for that.

But, in the age of 65" HDTV's, streaming services where you can watch literally any game, fully stocked home bars, etc. Leagues/schools have to look harder at things like this.

Sounds like the concert is going to move inside the stadium this year right before the fireworks. That is a good idea.

The day’s schedule (June 17):

Team Practices: 9:10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Team Autograph Sessions: Each team will sign autographs for 45 minutes beginning 30 minutes after the conclusion of their respective practice.
Fan Fest: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. (Lot C and Mike Fahey Street.)
Opening Ceremonies: 8:45 – 10 p.m. Featuring X Ambassadors, team arrivals, the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team and the fireworks finale.

Wow, Creighton pretty much choked that away with the last 2 weeks of the season.

When I saw this on the news the other night I thought that they were taking away the circulator. Glad to see that is not the case. I have never used the park and ride shuttles, but the circulator is great. You can park on the fringe of downtown and hop on the bus for $.25 and get dropped off right next to the stadium.

(4) Xavier sends (3) Washington home and has to win two from (2) UCSB to move on.
Arizona must win two from UL-Laf., the only two West Coast teams left in the field.

Arizona punches the first ticket to Omaha sending #6 National seed Miss St home,
scoring 3 in the eighth, 1 in the 9th and a bases loaded single in the 11th to come back from a 1-5 deficit.
It will be Arizona's 17th appearance in Omaha and their first since 2012 when they won it all.

I went to bed after the top of the 9th. LSU had so many chances. I thought they would pull this one out in front of the home crowd.
