On December 3, 2020, the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics issued a formal report, “Transforming the NCAA D-I Model: Recommendation for Change” in which the Knight Commission called for a “reset” of college athletics, urging Presidents and Chancellors to play their rightful leadership role in demanding such reform. Unfortunately, The Drake Group believes the proposed reforms are neither bold, nor aggressive, and disappointing in that they are devoid of any specificity in remedying embarrassing college athlete education outcomes. Sacrificing 16,000 FBS football players to remain under the control of the highly commercialized and educationally corrupt new football association doesn’t change a system of exploitive practices.
