What They're Saying: Kyle Kallander

“People just really aren’t sure what [enrollment] is going to look like until we get to the fall. We’ve got institutions that are projecting potentially a 20 percent drop in enrollment. That has a major impact on the institution when you’re talking about [losing] tuition and room-and-board revenue. Our institutions are all looking for ways to be more efficient and be more responsible. As a conference office, we work closely with our [athletics directors] on identifying a full menu of areas that we can try to be more efficient in for the coming year.”

-- Kyle Kallander, entering his 25th year as the Big South commissioner, on the move by his conference to limit tournament fields in seven sports -- including men's and women’s soccer -- to just the top four teams and move finals to on-campus sites in 2020-21. A big factor for smaller conferences seeking to cut costs will be lowered enrollment. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
