Pac 12 proposes NCAA reforms.
Wed May 21, 2014 5:04 am
  • The Pac 12 presidents sent a letter to the presidents of the schools in the other "power 5" conferences outlining their proposals for reforms to the NCAA. It's pretty interesting.

    For those that don't want to read the full article, the basic proposals are below.

    - Permit institutions to make scholarship awards up to the full cost of attendance.

    - Provide reasonable ongoing medical or insurance assistance for student-athletes who suffer an incapacitating injury in competition or practice. Continue efforts to reduce the incidence of disabling injury.

    - Guarantee scholarships for enough time to complete a bachelor's degree, provided that the student remains in good academic standing.

    - Decrease the demands placed on the athlete in-season, correspondingly increase the time available for studies and campus life, by preventing the abuse of organized "voluntary" practices to circumvent the limit of 20 hours per week and more realistically assess the time away from campus and other commitments during the season.

    - Similarly decrease time demands out of season by reducing out-of-season competition and practices, and by considering shorter seasons in specific sports.

    - Further strengthen the Academic Progress Rate requirements for postseason play.

    - Address the "one and done" phenomenon in men's basketball. If the NBA and its Players Association are unable to agree to raising the age limit for players, consider restoring the freshman ineligibility rule in men's basketball.

    - Provide student-athletes a meaningful role in governance at the conference and NCAA levels.

    - Adjust existing restrictions so that student-athletes preparing for the next stage of their careers are not unnecessarily deprived of the advice and counsel of agents and other competent professionals, but without professionalizing intercollegiate athletics.

    - Liberalize the current rules limiting the ability of student-athletes to transfer between institutions.
