NCAA COMMISSION TO OFFER MARKETING FREEDOM FOR NCAA HOOPS?
Published July 19, 1999
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).
