NCAA panel proposes reforms — COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Davis The Commission on College Basketball has some good ideas. Bold? Not so much

And few now drinking from that trough have any intention of changing anything that will get in the way of the cash flow.

"Our focus has been to strengthen the collegiate model - not to move toward one that brings aspects of professionalism into the game", said Rice, the former secretary of state, who was chairwoman of the commission and who delivered a prepared statement at NCAA headquarters here Wednesday morning. "But it doesn't go almost far enough".

How quickly that change will come and what exactly it will look like remains to be seen. "And I think there's a reason to think there could be tougher times still ahead".

But Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports told us: "With them (Commission) tossing around the possibility of a five-year post-season ban if you are in the Federal Bureau of Investigation complaint, and you're already coming out from under another major scandal - things are very serious for Louisville".

Ridpath welcomed the commission's acknowledgment that change was necessary.

But are the NCAA, USA Basketball, apparel companies, the NBA and its players union capable of teaming to reform a flawed sport?

Rice and the commission is recommending sweeping changes to NBA draft rules, NCAA enforcement and summer basketball.

Appointed in the wake of the FBI investigation, the commission wants the NCAA to hire an executive to develop agent standards and administer the program.

"I agree with the commission that a scholarship is a really valuable and wonderful thing.", Bilas said. Why would it be bad to give the student athletes all the best advice that they could receive?

The path to a level playing field is complicated, Roth said. "They limit the amount of commercials". Yes, the same organization that has no clue how to even run itself would somehow be in charge of thousands of teams and leagues while at the same time keeping out the influence peddlers from Nike, Under Armour and Adidas.

But the NCAA will never get its member schools - much less the National Basketball Association, shoe companies and AAU coaches and officials - to come to terms on anything of any significance to fix things. Moreover, the often corrupt world of non-scholastic basketball targets far more than just prospective one-and-done players.

As for recruiting, the commission stopped short of not allowing college coaches to attend summer events sponsored by shoe companies.

"I'm confident that they're going to be very supportive of that and will be good partners with us", he said.

Evan Daniels, of 247 Sports, said having a new university president, athletic director, basketball coach and staff should help the school's cause. Better to wait on the resolution of ongoing court cases, the commission said. "We are evaluating the recommendations". With a goal of 2019, we recommend that the NCAA work with USA Basketball, the NBA and the NBPA and others to establish and administer new youth basketball programs.

Everyone knows that college basketball needs major changes, and some possibilities were presented on April 25 by the Commission on College Basketball' in a 53-page report.

"While the report and recommendations won't solve all of our challenges overnight, this represents an important step in a process to restore confidence in this great sport. The fact that the NCAA Board of Governors has already endorsed the commission's recommendations shows there is a genuine appetite for change".

Scott continued, "We are also gratified that the Commission today emphasized the value of a college degree, and that its recommendations reflect our own Task Force's view that there are ways to refine the rules governing eligibility to play college basketball that preserve the essential attributes of the collegiate model but provide a measure of flexibility that could safeguard against cheating and reduce perceptions of unfairness". Coaches will howl about the latter, and how are you going to make freshmen ineligible for basketball and not other sports? The NABC would issue a statement later in the week, he said.
