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).
