Are Changes Coming to the NCAA?

Posted: August 9, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

NCAA President Mark Emmert, together with approximately 70 college presidents, chancellors and conference officials, will meet over the next two days to “address issues ranging from rules compliance, to sentiment for getting more scholarship money for student-athletes and attacking academic shortcomings in the marquee sports of football and men’s basketball.”

NCAA officials are under the opinion that as a result of these meetings “significant changes in college athletics” are on the horizon.  One can only hope that these “significant changes” are truly in the best interest of the student-athlete and not to help further fill the pockets of the NCAA.
