The NCAA established the independent Commission on College Basketball to recommend changes to a sport that is in serious trouble. I have led reform efforts across many disciplines, including corporations, government and academia. Meaningful reform can only happen if you get the incentives right – you must reward those who do the right thing; get the disincentives right – the sanctions must be strong enough to deter illicit activity and to punish it when it happens; and you must have a leadership that takes responsibility to lead and live under the reforms.

There is now a rare moment of consensus on what must be done. This week the Knight Commission updated their findings and expressed support for our Commission’s work – we welcome their updated recommendations and are pleased that we share agreement on the strategic direction. Here is what our Commission’s recommendations are intended to do.

Very good article and the recommendations are sound and just. It addresses the one thing that always bothered me about those wanting to get rid of the collegiate model and pay student-athletes and that is the average student down the hall or across the hall. Just a good article.
