NCAA gives more power to major conferences

The NCAA board of directors voted 16-2 Thursday to approve more power for the “Power 5″ conferences — the Pac-12, Big 10, Big 12, SEC and ACC — which allows them to write many of their own rules.

The decision allows the power conferences to determine for themselves how much they’ll spend on things such as cost-of-attendance stipends and insurance benefits for players. They’ll also get to regulate their staff sizes and recruiting rules.

The move will create a wider chasm and greater disparity between the 65 schools in the so-called major conferences and everyone else.

It appears it’s just a matter of time before the big conferences break from the NCAA to form their own organization.
