Back to basics for Ochocinco in L.A. workouts

Back to basics for Ochocinco in L.A. workouts | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

Haylock: "For Chad Ochocinco, it's about getting back to basics.

The longtime Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, late of the New England Patriots, is working out at West LA College as he tries to get back to who he used to be on the football field and prepares for his first season with the Miami Dolphins.

He's doing so under the watchful eye of Charles Collins, who is considered to be one of the best coaches of wide receivers in the nation. Collins, better known as Coach C, has the task of trying to get Ochocinco back to playing at the elite level he once did."

Checking pre-training camp grades

Walker: "Worst offense: Miami Dolphins, D

Miami is the only team unsure of its quarterback heading into the season. The Dolphins will stage a three-way quarterback competition and there’s a chance neither player -- Matt Moore, David Garrard or Ryan Tannehill -- is the answer. The Dolphins have no dynamic threats at receiver. Miami is hoping 34-year-old Chad Ochocinco can find the fountain of youth and be a No. 1 receiver. Brian Hartline, Davone Bess and Legedu Naanee are supporting receivers, at best. This is not good for a team trying to implement a West Coast offense.

 

 

Worst coaching: (tie) Dolphins and Buffalo Bills, C-

Both of these grades are somewhat mysteries. The Dolphins have a rookie head coach in Joe Philbin. He seems to have a good mentality. But the real test comes in the regular season, when we will know more about Philbin’s game-planning and management. Bills head coach Chan Gailey is 10-22 in two years in Buffalo. But is this more of a reflection of Gailey’s coaching or Buffalo’s thin roster? The Bills have the most talented team on paper they’ve had in years. We will find out if Gailey can coach in 2012.

 

 

 

Worst overall: Dolphins, C-

Dolphins fans have been on me this offseason for writing them off as a rebuilding team. I just don’t see how this Miami team can win more than six games this year. The offense won’t score enough points and the defense is good, but not elite where it can single-handedly carry Miami to the playoffs. That doesn’t mean the Dolphins won’t be tough to play against. They just don’t have the talent to win 10 games and get to the playoffs."

"Amateur" Sports: Florida State University ACC payout jumps nearly $4 million in past year to $16.9 million

"Amateur" Sports: Florida State University ACC payout jumps nearly $4 million in past year to $16.9 million | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

Via Sun Sentinel:

 

FSU to receive approximately $16.9 million from conference this year, got nearly $13.1 million last year

 

TALLAHASSEE — On the last day of May, all appeared grim on the financial front for Florida State.

School officials at the time knew they had been promised by the ACC a check for at least $5.5 million that was set to arrive in their offices the next day. The money was to be added to FSU's 2011-12 athletic budget to cover costs related to the school year's most recent sports seasons.

 

That check was expected to send the conference's grand total to the school to about $14.1 million for the entire fiscal year.

 

Due in part to the ACC landing two teams in BCS bowls this past season — Clemson and Virginia Tech — the conference on June 1 ended up writing FSU a check for $6,997,398.85. Nearly $1.5 million more than it was expecting, that check, along with an additional $1.3 million that will come in September following an end-of-year NCAA audit, will help to completely rid the Seminoles of the budgetary nightmare that appeared to be staring them down.

 

In all, FSU will receive from the ACC just short of $16.9 million for the 2011-12 fiscal year. That's nearly $2.7 million more than it and other conference schools were expecting to receive when they were handed conference distribution figures for the year in Feb. 2011.

 

That $16.9 million is nearly $4 million more than FSU received from the conference a year ago...

Performance enhancement: Superhuman athletes

Performance enhancement: Superhuman athletes | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it
Enhancements such as doping are illegal in sport — but if all restrictions were lifted, science could push human performance to new extremes.

 

UK sprinter Dwain Chambers faces the race of his life next month, as he attempts to win an Olympic medal at the 2012 games in London — and complete a long journey back from the disgrace of his 2003 suspension for doping.

 

Chambers, who has devoted much of his time since then to persuading others to steer clear of performance-enhancing drugs, has admitted to using six different substances banned by the sporting authorities. These included two anabolic steroids — a designer drug and a testosterone cream — to accelerate recovery; the hormone erythropoietin (EPO), which increases production of red blood cells, to allow him to do more repetitions in training; human growth hormone for recovery; a thyroid hormone called liothyronine to decrease sluggishness; and a narcolepsy drug called modafinil to increase mental alertness and reaction time.

Florida State Seminoles football coach Jimbo Fisher bans players from tweeting

Florida State Seminoles football coach Jimbo Fisher bans players from tweeting | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

Via Palm Beach Post:

 

Coach Jimbo Fisher told Warchant.com that he has banned the use of Twitter for his players indefinitely. Fisher’s decision comes after sophomore cornerback Tyler Hunter quoted lyrics from a rap song in a tweet that made reference to killing cops.

 

“Twitter is a privilege,” Fisher told Warchant. “When you represent an organization you have to represent it very well or we don’t represent it. When we are responsible enough to deal with it, we’ll deal with it (return to Twitter).”

 

Fisher said that he had to interrupt his vacation to inform his players to stop tweeting.

 

“They have to be very smart, they have to learn,” Fisher said. “They just don’t understand the ramifications of things. They don’t realize how global those things are."

 

This is the second time in nine months that Fisher has banned players from twitter.

The 2012 Olympics: Where Sports and Social Media Converge

The 2012 Olympics: Where Sports and Social Media Converge | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

One of the most interesting aspects of the 2012 Summer Olympics isn’t the pole vault or shot put, but rather how the games are bringing sports and social media together. Three of the biggest social media sites —Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube — are poised to play an unprecedented role at the Olympics. As a result, for more than two weeks, sports and social media will go hand in hand, making these the “first social games.” By the closing ceremony, it’s likely that just as many records will have been broken online as on the playing field.

 

Without a doubt, the vast majority of this year’s athletes have embraced social media. Whether personally or with the help of an agent, many of them will diligently provide real-time updates to their fans throughout the games. And it’s not just the athletes — the International Olympic Committee has also climbed on board the social media bandwagon. In addition to creating official Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages that will broadcast live feeds throughout the Olympics, the IOC has set up an Olympic Athletes’ Hub, a site that allows visitors to more easily follow their favorite competitors on Facebook and Twitter.

 

These are just a few basic examples of how social media has infiltrated the 2012 Olympics. The net result is that fans around the world will have greater access to and be more engaged with the games than ever before. For the first time, all of the 32 sports and 300 individual events that are part of the Olympics will gain the exposure that they deserve (I’m looking at you archery, badminton, and handball) and have their moment in the spotlight. And, for the first time, fans will be able to interact by sharing their own reactions, likes, favorites, tweets, and more.

 

Of course, the underlying point here is that the proliferation of social media has been nothing short of explosive over the past few years. That becomes particularly clear when you compare these Olympics with the Beijing games held just four years ago. While the fact that those games weren’t particularly social is partly a reflection of Chinese policy, it’s also a reminder of how much social media has grown.

Golden, Miami to rely heavily on youth

Golden, Miami to rely heavily on youth | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

Perkins: "'Canes fans have a right to be worried.

They could struggle this season. How much? It's tough to say. But don't count on, say, eight wins. Seven wins could be tough.

I like the Super Sophs – linebacker Denzel Perryman, tight end Clive Walford and defensive end Anthony Chickillo, mainly, although there are a few others. These guys are future studs. But they might not be enough to ensure a six-win season, the threshold to make a team bowl-eligible. And those Super Sophs alone certainly don't provide enough depth to get through a 12-game season as depth is a big concern.

And how's this to raise the sense of urgency? The Hurricanes open at Boston College on Sept. 1, an ACC opponent. Then the Miami's on the road at Kansas State on Sept. 8. You'll recall the Wildcats defeated Miami 28-24 last season and ran all over the Hurricanes with that option offense led by hulking quarterback Collin Klein (6-foot-5, 226 pounds). It could be more of the same this year.

There will be veterans taking the field at UM. However, senior safety Vaughn Telemaque, senior cornerback Brandon McGee, senior running back Mike James, junior right tackle Seantrel Henderson, junior right guard Brandon Linder, junior wide receiver Allen Hurns and junior fullback Maurice Hagens are about the only returning upperclassmen that saw a good amount of playing time last season. There are a few more sprinkled in, but you get the idea. It's a skeleton crew, and none seems to be a superstar."

Forbes: Miami Dolphins Are the 22nd Most Valuable Sports Franchise in the World, Way More So Than Heat

Forbes: Miami Dolphins Are the 22nd Most Valuable Sports Franchise in the World, Way More So Than Heat | High End Marketing Ideas | Scoop.it

Via Miami New Times:

 

The Miami Heat might be the most successful team in town right now, but the Dolphins still reign supreme in terms of most valuable franchise. Forbes.com has listed the world's most valuable sports teams. The Fins came in 22nd overall, but the Heat didn't even make the cut.

 

Forbes estimates the Dolphins are worth about $1.01 billion. However, that's because NFL teams, on average, seem to be more valuable than other sports leagues. Thirteen other NFL teams on the list ranked higher than the Dolphins (including the New England Patriots and the New York Jets). Forbes.com's writeup of the Fins isn't exactly positive:

 

The Dolphins brand has been damaged in recent years after three straight losing seasons and only one playoff appearance in the last decade. The team lost its first seven games of the 2011 season and struggled to sell tickets.The Dolphins, team sponsors and the local TV station often bought unsold tickets to prevent home games from being blacked out. The Dolphins roster of investors reads like a who's who of pop culture: Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Fergie, and Serena and Venus Williams.


The Heat, despite boasting the world's best basketball player in LeBron James, didn't make the list. The only NBA teams in the top 50 are the Los Angeles Lakers at #35 and the New York Knicks and #43...

Rhett Moroses's curator insight, September 11, 2013 2:28 PM

Although this article is about how the Dolphins are more valuable than the Heat, the performance of the team and certain business deals affect that rating tremendously. One reason why the Dolphins were so valuable was because of how the NFL is so valuable. Interesting enough, Thirteen teams from the league were named the most valuable teams in sports as well. But since the Dolphins has not been a dominant team in football, they have decreasing ticket sales and loss of profit. But the Heat are on the rise with new television contracts and being the best team in the NBA. This article is interesting to read about how sport business and sport performance both relate to revenue. Both aspects teach us how to generate revenue in the sports industry.
