  • POWER OF MANY IN THE HANDS OF FEW IN NCAA RESTRUCTURING?

         Reps from over 900 NCAA members school will open an annual
    convention in Dallas on Sunday "that's expected to be one of the
    most pivotal in history," according to Steve Wieberg of USA
    TODAY.  The meetings could "dramatically reshape and streamline
    its government structure, shifting the power to 90-some schools
    with the nations's biggest, most powerful athletic programs."
    The new system would put presidents and chancellors more "firmly
    in control," with a "almost all policy making" coming from three
    boards in charge of the NCAA's three divisions where the "biggest
    would be best-represented."  A key to the support from small
    schools was revenue-sharing, particularly the $1.725B from the
    CBS basketball contract (USA TODAY, 1/5).
