The NCAA will consider "retooling its Division I governance structure this summer amid what some officials say is growing sentiment to further split its top football-playing schools," according to Wieberg & O'Toole of USA TODAY. NCAA President Mark Emmert said yesterday that he would "appoint a panel to examine the issue, stressing it would focus on 'the way in which Division I is organized for the purposes of making decisions' -- and not on a competitive format that now groups football programs into bowl and lower-tier championship subdivisions." Among other things, the panel will "look at the makeup of the board of directors and ensuring non-football schools and those in the championship subdivision are properly represented." Multiple officials who have been in meetings with Emmert, his staff and NCAA boards are "more bullish about the potential for a Division I split" (USA TODAY, 1/30).
