Bowlsby’s Vision: College Sports Need Some Changes

AP’s “The Big Story” on March 22, 2014 was a report on the remarks Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby made at the Knight Commission’s March 17, 2014 meeting. The report noted that Bowlsby’s panel was “tasked with forecasting how college sports may change over the next decade…if Bowlsby got his way, the model would change—considerably.”

“Recruiting, admissions, enforcement, practice times, length of seasons—it’s all apparently on Bowlsby’s radar, and in this time where talk of changes and overhauls continues to sweep the NCAA landscape, the Big 12 commissioner offered a simple warning to the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.

“‘We have a lot of work to do, folks,’ Bowlsby said.”
