Emmert: NCAA To Revisit Stipends, But No Support For Concept Of Paying Athletes
Published September 17, 2013
REBUILDING PROJECT: The AP's Nancy Armour noted commissioners from the "most powerful conferences and big-market schools have called for an overhaul" of the NCAA's governance structure. Emmert said that the BOD "plans to begin discussions at its meeting next month," followed by a "day-and-a-half forum that will give the entire membership a chance to formulate options" at the NCAA's national convention. The BOD "hopes to adopt proposals at its meeting next April, then have a special meeting for the full membership next summer." Emmert: "That could involve bringing all 350 members of Division I together and having every school vote on it. It'll be a bit like a constitutional convention." Emmert added that while there has been "talk the largest schools could form their own 'super division,' no one is threatening to leave the NCAA" (AP, 9/16).
