If you're like University of Missouri athletic director Mack Rhoades, heck, you don't even keep it secretively crinkled up in a wallet.

"Probably mine is (in) the third (desk) drawer, behind 'Prospective Head Coaches,'" Rhoades said.
His undisclosed "A list" surely includes the man he hired just before leaving the University of Houston, Tom Herman.
But Rhoades isn't going to make following this quite that simple.
"Searches are a journey," he said.
...
Rhoades' ability to execute the elusive right hire at the right time, of course, can't yet be known.
...
But for now, without having seen him operate before, we can only take at face value the tidbits for a fit that Rhoades gave us.
...
Asked generally about interviewing minority candidates, Rhoades said there were "great minority candidates out there … (and) I see value in hiring or interviewing the best candidates out there."
Despite stressing the importance of experience assembling a staff, Rhoades clarified that he's not averse to an assistant coach.
He also didn't rule out continuity from Pinkel's staff, on which the most likely potential candidate seems to be defensive coordinator Barry Odom.
"All I'm locked in on," Rhoades said, "is about the right person."
...
"It's market-driven," Rhoades said.

...
COLUMBIA - Spring semester might be coming to a close, but for Mack Rhoades, this week began with his first day at a new school - a feeling his wife, Amy, helped solidify.
"She actually took a picture of me as I'm leaving the townhome at 6 a.m. and texted it to my daughter," Rhoades said. "So it really did feel like the first day of school."
Though for Rhoades, his duties will be a bit more consequential than getting to class on time and remembering to pack a lunch. Rhoades made the move from Texas to take the reigns as the University of Missouri's newest director of athletics.
Rhoades, who held the same position at the University of Houston, met with media Thursday for the first time since taking over for Mike Alden, Missouri's athletic director for the past 17 years.
...
"I'm almost 100 hours into this job, and I think of those hundred, I've slept for maybe 10 of them," Rhoades said.
His initial focus is executing his 90-day plan, which includes three main stages: evaluating personnel and organizational structure, developing a five-year plan for the athletic program's facilities and building relationships on campus and beyond.
"You don't build and have a successful athletics program by yourself," Rhoades said. "We need the help of a lot of people, and it starts with those folks on campus, beginning to engage them and get to know them and make sure that they understand our vision and that we're completely in line in terms of the university's mission."
Rhoades' initial personnel move will be finding a replacement for Doug Gillin, who left the deputy athletic director position at Missouri to become athletic director at Appalachian State.
...
Rhoades said the position might not be structured the same way as Gillin's.
...
"I think the initial focus will certainly be on our external units, meaning fundraising, communications, marketing, promotions, licensing, merchandise, ticket sales, ticket operations," Rhoades said.
Rhoades' No. 2 at Houston, Hunter Yurachek, was announced Tuesday as Rhoades' replacement at Houston, meaning one option for Missouri's deputy athletic director is off the list.
...
"I had a moment here where I wasn't really happy, and I kind of lost perspective," Rhoades said of Yurachek's hiring at Houston. "(I'm) supposed to be happy for a dear friend and I wasn't, but then quickly said 'You know what, things happen for a reason.'"
Rhoades said a candidate for the position will be in Columbia this weekend, and if he is satisfied, there might not be a second candidate.
The first facility undertaking on the list is the proposed renovations to the south end zone of Memorial Stadium - including a possible addition of luxury seating to boost revenue.
"But at the end of the day, we might have three things at the top of the list," Rhoades said. "I don't know yet."
Rhoades said the development is in the "discussion stage" and he met Thursday morning with football coach Gary Pinkel.
As for relationships, Rhoades said associate athletic director Tim Stedman is currently scheduling appointments with the department's top 25 donors.
...
"Right now, I think we're a little bit of an inbound company, meaning that we do a really good job of taking phone calls," Rhoades said, "but we've got to get aggressive, we've got to have people on the phone and getting people excited and getting people to come out to not just football games, but all of our venues and really implement a pro model. Professional athletics does a great job in terms of selling tickets, and so we'll certainly begin to look at that."
In regard to men's basketball, where attendance numbers plummeted as the team set a record for losses in a single season, Rhoades' solution for putting people in seats was simple.
"Win games," he said.
Rhoades said he has faith in first-year basketball coach Kim Anderson's ability to turn the program around.
"I never want to point a finger at anybody, but we all realize that what Kim inherited wasn't a perfect situation, and it just wasn't," Rhoades said.
...
Rhoades doesn't have that problem with Missouri's football team.
...
Rhoades said he was kept in the loop during Pinkel's contract discussions, but he didn't have any say on what the terms would be.
...
Rhoades said he has not yet made a decision regarding Jamieson's future, but that he would meet with the coach the second week of May to discuss it.
Also up for discussion: renovations to the baseball team's facilities.
"I think you look at just facility alone in terms of baseball in the (Southeastern Conference), some of those ballparks look like AAA ballparks," Rhoades said. "I think that's certainly one area that we would have to address."
Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin recently expressed an interest in adding a men's tennis team, but Rhoades said that was not a priority of his.
"We're never going to add a sport just to add a sport," Rhoades said. "If we add a sport, it's so we can compete right away."
Rhoades was also asked about the future of the Missouri-Kansas rivalry, which came to a halt when Missouri joined the SEC in 2012. Rhoades expressed willingness to re-up the tradition but was careful to say when or if it might happen.
"We would certainly like to play them again," he said.

...
Mack Rhoades will be introduced Tuesday as the University of Missouri's new athletic director, and he appears to bring many fine things to the job.
He's managed the pandemonium of realignment, helping Houston land comfortably in the American Athletic Conference, and he's known as a forward-thinker willing to make bold moves.
Rhoades, 49, especially seems to be an astute fundraiser, everyone says, particularly considering he helped raise more than $100 million for capital campaigns for the University of Houston the last five years.
...
But if it's to prove true, how Rhoades will fit has less to do with any specific tasks or philosophies right now than it does more elemental matters:
...
By all accounts, it's not something that will be a chore for Rhoades. Colleagues, people who worked for him and MU insiders gush about his warmth, his consensus-building style, personability and … willingness to relate.
