Host Question: What was your favorite class or maybe just overall best part of your sports management program?
Guest Answer: So the capstone for my sports management program, we put together pitches on a new idea. It was very vague framework, a new idea for a stadium or arena, and that was so fun. We worked in teams of two. And you put together like old school poster boards and we brought in people from the industry in the area that came and looked through and asked you questions on your presentation. And it was just so fun to chat with people that were in the industry to really pick their brain and to be putting that together in a short turnaround time to pitch to people. You could work for one day. That it was fun. It was exciting and a little bit exhilarating.
Guest Answer: My favorite is my bachelors. We did, gosh, I think it was just the introduction class, but we were assigned a specific University sports program and we had to come up with a 12 game football schedule and then work out all the financials behind it. And so I got tagged as University of Oklahoma. We spent, gosh, two or three different class periods going around to our classmates and scheduling games and then working out the contracts for them and stuff.
Guest Answer: I had a professor who taught social issues in sports, and he became a great friend of mine and a confidant. Even now that I can call upon being able to connect with him for three hours a week and different classmates was a pretty special time. I think I would take that specific professor for maybe three in-person classes, and then he sat on my grants committee. I flew back to campus a year or two later and he saw my committee. And so it was very cool. And it was during a time, maybe 20 1415, when college athletics was just on the verge of changing and that we know that the transfer portal is here and I am all those things. So that was sort of the beginning conversation of that. She loved those conversations. And so not only was the topic interesting, but she was a really engaging, open, thoughtful professor who saw my resume and.
