CFA ELECTS TO DISBAND IN FACE OF CONFERENCE DISINTEREST
Published June 3, 1996
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).
