While it's not a full-on breakaway from the NCAA that's coming to college football, the look and feel of the sport will never be the same. Frustrated at a bogged-down, ineffective NCAA, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Monday he and his BCS conference peers favored "transformative change" in college athletics.
He later identified that change as the possible establishment of a so-called “Division 4” of the highest level of football-playing schools.
Big 12 commissioner says time has come to create a new division
"Theoretically they not only will be able to pay players, but pay them as much as they want -- $5,000, $10,000 per year? Why not? In the new governance structure, there'd be no MAC schools to vote it down."
Terrible idea. Football would be dominated by a select few. Texas would sign anyone they pleased.
I imagine there would be a financially viable # cap voted upon by the members,
The rich get richer...
I would hope so. I wonder how many support Saban's views though (don't pay them)?
If we start paying players, we should eliminate the academic side (scholarships and classes) and call college football what it really is.
