NCAA Strengthens Penalties For Violations, Overhauls Enforcement Rules
Published October 31, 2012
CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE: SI.com's Andy Staples wrote the NCAA's decision "holds millionaire head coaches accountable for broken rules instead of allowing them to sacrifice assistants to save their own skins." The new policy also "will hopefully speed up the often-glacial enforcement process, allowing the NCAA to deal with rule-breaking coaches before they retire." Fans should "credit the NCAA for making an honest effort to overhaul a system in desperate need of fixing" (SI.com, 10/30).
GROUNDED: The AP's Michael Marot noted NCAA BOD members typically "attend the Indianapolis meetings in person." But when it "became clear that Superstorm Sandy could have a significant impact on travel plans, the members who were not yet in Indy were told to stay home." Ray said that it was "the first time in his 5 1/2-year tenure the board met on the phone" (AP, 10/30).
