SI report: College admins poised to turn NCAA upside down

[3]
Apr 27, 2022, 2:41 PM

Sports Illustrated reported on Wednesday that a NCAA committee headed up by SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is proposing some big changes to college athletics.

The report described them as being "concepts and not approved measures" but the tenor of the story was that college officials wouldn't be surprised to see them implemented in the future. From the story:

Several athletic administrators and college sports insiders discussed the Transfer Committee’s concepts under the condition of anonymity. They include (1) eliminating scholarship caps on sports that offer only partial scholarships; (2) abolishing the limitation on the number of coaches per team; (3) expanding direct payments from schools to athletes; (4) reconfiguring the recruiting calendar; and (5) implementing closed periods in the NCAA transfer portal. At least the first three items will be left in the decision-making hands of individual conferences, if the concepts are approved.

On the recruiting calendar, the story presented the idea of "eliminating some regulations and replacing dead, quiet, evaluation and recruiting periods with two windows: a recruiting period and a dead period. More coaches and staff members—beyond the on-field 11 for football, for instance—would be able to recruit off campus, too."

On clearing scholarship caps, that could pave the way for schools being able to give out full scholarships for sports like baseball. The article also brought up Title IX and how a new-look NCAA would navigate equity there.

Sankey was also at the forefront of a Playoff expansion committee last year before his league expanded itself to get Texas and Oklahoma out of the Big 12.

NCAA president Mark Emmert was announced as stepping down in the next year on Tuesday. The entire story in the link below:

that more people are realizing that this unregulated mess of a league change to enable legal cheating is making people uncomfortable?

One and three could be quite the combination. If I can give any number or 99% scholarships and expand the amount of "direct payments from schools to athletes", the school could cover 100% if not more. It might be a return to the Bear Bryant days at Bama. It is for sports that offer ONLY partial scholarships but is there wording to keep someone from gaming the system?

My thoughts too. It appears to me the SEC is taking the situation from bad to worse.

Baseball, for example, means we lose one for another men's sport. This will lead to the shrinking of college sports offerings.
Also I don't want Bama to be able to legally hire 47 more football coaches.

Mark Emmert's replacement. It's critical to get right.

College sports as we know it hang in the balance.

There are just as many out there who want to professionalize the sports as there are that want to keep them tied to a college education.

Sankey to rename it the SEC League.

If Sankey is involved, one thing is for sure...

this has nothing do do with the NCAA or collegiate athletics in general and everything to do with what is in the best interest of the $EC and, of course, the leagues cheerleading annex ESecPN.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Yeah the SEC doesn't need to change anything. The NCAA bows down to them now.

Do away with all school funded athletic scholarships. Title IX would no longer apply.
