As I've said before, these things have nothing to do with the SID staff. It's the responsibility of the the staffer responsible for digital strategy who manages the website. You can find the name on the website and ask that person why.
Tasks that were previously assumed to be under the analog, print model, 20 century responsibilities of an SID have changed. Just as major corporations operate a different organizational model from 10, 20 or 30 years ago.
College and university D1 Athletic Departments have evolved in their strategic and tactical business models for operations, marketing, finance, fan engagement, digital strategy, facilities to separate responsibilities that are based on a need for their institution. Until recently Holy Cross was mired in inertia in not recognizing and implementing a 21st century, operating model for the Athletics. Go on the web sites for Patriot League, Ivy League, A10, schools and you can see how they operate. Needless to say, P6 conference schools are even more staff intensive regarding their needs for digital strategy to meet the needs for network affiliations and data transmission.
I worked for a major fortune 100 company that every fall went through a series of reorganizations that the stated purpose was to increase efficiency. Many of us were cynical regarding their rationale was to satisfy the street and institutional investors regarding their agility as a company.
