There are "indications" that the NCAA committee that "wants to reform men's college basketball" is "steering away from a proposal to require freshman to sit out a year," according to Mark Brown of the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. But the group's "centerpiece may be a ground-breaking plan to link a team's allotted scholarships to its graduation rate." (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 7/19). USA TODAY's Steve Wieberg reports that the panel is "expected to call for a tightening of summer recruiting and more careful attention to the sport's business side." The panel is "calling for more flexibility in marketing and future contract negotiations and, in general, a stricter business approach" (USA TODAY, 7/19).
