NCAA’s Emmert: It is time to decentralize college sports
NCAA President Mark Emmert is suggesting it could be time for a decentralized and deregulated version of college sports.
Emmert says a recent Supreme Court ruling against the NCAA along with lifting restrictions on athletes monetizing their fame are a catalyst.
Emmert says he is not offering a mandate or even a recommendation. But he says the time is right to consider a collegiate model that puts fewer constraints on athletes and de-emphasizes the role of a national governing body.
