By the way, this isn’t just me talking. I spoke with several coaches and former NCAA officials who question the organization’s ability to remain relevant. The consensus: It can happen, but only if the NCAA is willing to make fundamental changes to the way it does business.
Right now, the NCAA has too many coats of bureaucratic paint. Its size has contributed to its inability to react quickly. Imagine a battleship trying to turn around in the Panama Canal. That’s the NCAA.
