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).
