  • CFA ELECTS TO DISBAND IN FACE OF CONFERENCE DISINTEREST

         The College Football Association, founded in '77 to give
    major college football schools a larger voice in the NCAA -- and
    which later served as a TV broker for those schools, will cease
    to exist on June 30, 1997, according to a vote of the
    organization's board of directors.  According to the DALLAS
    MORNING NEWS, that vote came after three conferences, the SEC,
    the ACC and Big East, "expressed doubts about future membership."
    ACC and Big East officials said they believed "recent
    restructuring efforts within the NCAA would allow college
    football an effective voice and vote in legislative matters."
    Steve Richardson writes the "demise" could also be attributed to
    the end of the CFA's TV contract with ABC-ESPN after '95 (DALLAS
    MORNING NEWS, 6/1).
