NCAA announces changes to ‘streamline’ Division I rulebook

NCAAB, NCAAF

The NCAA Board of Directors adopted a set of proposals on Saturday that will “streamline” the Division I rulebook. The changes stem from an August 2011 summit for D-I presidents and chancellors called by NCAA president Mark Emmert to address the issues facing intercollegiate athletics.

The Board voted to both add and eliminate rules, as well as deregulate areas such as amateurism, recruiting and eligibility. Changes include “enhanced academic eligibility standards for incoming freshmen and student-athletes who transfer from two-year colleges, the creation of a tie between a team’s academic performance and participation in NCAA championships, a revamped enforcement and Committee on Infractions process, and a multiyear scholarship model.”

The big-ticket rule changes focus on recruiting practices, according to USA Today‘s Dan Wolken.

NCAA.org posted a full list of the changes, including quotes from Emmert.

“These new rules represent noteworthy progress toward what can only be described as more common sense rules that allow schools more discretion in decision-making,” Emmert said. “This vote by the Board of Directors refocuses our attention on the things that really matter, the core values of intercollegiate athletics.”

 @Cody Smith What an idiot, I thought this post was about NCAA not NAACP.  Furthermore, all the things you mentioned are what the extremist in the Republicans stand for in today's day and age. Your racist comments are unfounded and just show's that you are now one of the minorities in this country that think that having gun rights are more important than the safety of our children.

 

The majority of guns being sold to criminals or people with mental health issues are sold at private gun shows that do little or no background checks at all. But to be honest, who knows what a sane person might do tomorrow if subject to a stressful situation?  My position is to eliminate as many gun from the streets as possible.

 

And finally, if you don't like the way things are going, then GET OUT!! Take your bigotry and you guns to someplace that excepts them.

 @Cody Smith  I try to never use words like "idiot or stupid" in debating an issue because everyone has a right to their opinion. However, you sir are not only a perfect argument for gun control, but also for reform of the 1st amendment. Idiot!

 @Cody Smith I will try and explain this to you because you racist republicans look for things to try and support your position. I don't care who brought the first 1 or 2 slaves here white white people brought millions and killed more blacks in the slave trade than Hitler. From packing them like sardines then throwing them 40% of them over board as shark food. Raping the women.Then they commited genocide on the native americans. Now let me ask you this it is not the title democrate or republican you and I both know how racist migrated from one party to the next so to say republicans did this or that is only playing to the minds of people that are not informed. If I was a rapist they called me tom and the cop sue if I began calling my self sue and the cops tom should the rape victim love me now. I know you know this you can tell your supporters this crap and they agree with you because the want a reason to
