The NCAA has been frozen with indecision since the June U.S. Supreme Court decision limiting its “amateur status” rules. Fearful of legal responsibility, the organization is pursuing a constitutional convention restructure that reeks of throwing its conference and institutional members under the litigation bus. College athletics has lost its way because of a failure of governance – pursuing riches for coaches and administrators derived from the economic and educational exploitation of college athletes instead of firmly embracing educational sport. Panelists discuss a blueprint for getting us back on track while retaining the special contributions of college sport to individual athlete development and the excitement and community it brings to the higher education campus. Athletic program success does not have to come at the expense of athlete physical and mental well-being, better educational outcomes, race and gender justice, or financial balance.
