Renee Schoof of McClatchy Newspapers reported on the August 6 memorandum from the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The article has been published by the Kansas City Star and several other media outlets. Schoof’s article focused on the Commission’s recommendations and additional areas for further study to help reform the organization. In addition, the article discussed the controversy about the NCAA selling replica player jerseys, a practice the NCAA announced it was discontinuing.
The article stated:
“The Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics has called on the NCAA to expand the boards that oversee Division I sports programs to include former athletes and public officials, in order to overcome a loss of confidence in its supervision of college athletics.
“‘The fragmented oversight for the highest level of college football, and for the billions of dollars in revenue it produces, was a key element in this examination,’ according to the Commission report delivered to NCAA President Mark Emmert.”
