SCHOOL DAZE: USA TODAY TAKES A LOOK AT NCAA'S FUTURE
USA TODAY's Carey & Mihoces examine the state of the
NCAA in a Sports cover story, under the title, "Organization
In Transition: Resilience Pivotal Trait For Future." In a
sidebar, Carey & Mihoces interview NCAA Exec Dir Cedric
Dempsey. Dempsey, on the NCAA's image: "A large number of
people see the NCAA either as a regulatory body making rules
or enforcing rules, or as championships and in most of those
cases they're talking about the Final Four. Most people
have no idea that we run 81 championships. Most people have
no idea about the other education services and programs.
They have no idea of the kinds of events and programs we run
for student-athletes" (USA TODAY, 6/30).
