Execs Say NCAA Is At A "Crossroads," With Changes Expected By August '14

RULES ARE RULES: Hatch, in response to whether some of the NCAA rules regarding payments to college athletes should be modified, said, "I stand by the NCAA's commitment to amateurism, and I believe the way we've done that is the correct way. So I believe the rules we have, we agree with." NCAA Enforcement Dir Jonathan Duncan said that he "does not anticipate modifications to those rules" (AP, 8/8). Emmert, Simon and Hatch said that they "don't see any reason to alter the rules that prohibit an athlete from profiting by signing his name" (BLOOMBERG NEWS, 8/9).
