When I got up this morning I read on ESPN.com, that the five power conferences of Division I college sports wants more flexibility in providing financial support to athletes.
In the past, other NCAA members have feared that would give the top programs even more of a competitive advantage. Now NCAA president Mark Emmert and the leaders of the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac 12 may be trying to convince schools with fewer resources that this is in the best interest of college athletics.
I couldn’t agree more. If those major conferences and the NCAA can start working on a plan that separates those 65 schools, it will make it more competitive for college football.
In fact, I’ve been saying the same thing for the last three years and I have a plan that would create more football championships and more bowl games in better venues. If you’re willing to think outside the box a bit, you’ll like what I have to say.
