Knight Commission Believes New Football Subdivision Should Be Studied

faultlineThe idea of a new subdivision of the richest schools in the country deserves more study, according to the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.  The commission does not, however, support such a subdivision just yet… it only calls for more study.

According to the ever-excellent Jon Solomon of The Birmingham News, the commissioner sent a memo to NCAA president Mark Emmert today calling for changes in how the NCAA governs.

Among the points covered in the think tank’s memo:

 

*   The makeup of the NCAA executive committee needs to be broadened.

*  The new College Football Playoff should reimburse the NCAA for services — such as eligibility checks, creation of rules, rules enforcement, etc — which enable college football to operate as a collegiate sport.

*  Revenue distribution should be revised to ensure academic incentives are appropriately embedded in the system.

 

The Knight Commission conducted interviews with about 50 “high education and college sports leaders” in an attempt to determine which NCAA-related issues are most important to the body’s members.

The NCAA Division I board will meet Thursday to begin considering different ways to govern the 348 schools — about 125 of which play football — in their membership.

As we’ve written for two years now, a new subdivision of the richest schools is the next step in college sports evolution.  There are too many issues involved for schools to break away totally from the NCAA.  Likewise, there are too many issues involved — money being the biggest — for all 348 Division I schools to be governed in the same fashion.  The easiest compromise, then, is a new subdivision at the top of the D-I stratum.
