BARRON OF THE BALL: In Tallahassee, Blackburn & Schoffel note during Eric Barron’s “first three years and four months as president of his alma mater -- and increasingly in the past year -- the stocky scientist with graying hair has begun charting a new course for Seminole athletics.” Although his impact is “felt more on a macro level than predecessor” T.K. Wetherell, Barron is “no less involved in the big decisions.” From “spearheading efforts to take over the Civic Center, which was seen as a major victory by FSU’s men’s and women’s basketball coaches, to helping pave the way for the Atlantic Coast Conference’s grant of media rights, which has provided stability across the college athletics landscape, Barron is far from the detached academic that some fans perceive” (TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT, 6/3).
