NCAA BOD Endorses Changes To Rule Book; Four-Year Postseason Bans On The Table
Published August 3, 2012
DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF: A Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL editorial is written under the header, “NCAA Wise To Overhaul Rule Book.” Secondary violations are a “fact of life in college athletics, and for coaches and schools, it's often a case of the old saying: Don't sweat the small stuff.” That is why NCAA President Mark Emmert “has set in motion an overhaul of the manual.” The editorial: “Let's hope the NCAA follows through and produces a new rule book that's clear, concise and guided by common sense. … The real problem with college athletics is the big stuff.” A smaller rule book “won't cure those ills, but at least it might lessen the distractions and put the focus where it belongs” (Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 8/3).
