This past Monday at SEC Media Days, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive once again reiterated his desire to see the five power conferences gain more decision-making autonomy in collegiate athletics. Friday morning, the NCAA moved the ball in that very direction.


“Autonomy saw some changes as well, including: a refinement of the list of items over which the five major conferences would have autonomy, codification of how items will move from shared governance to the autonomous area and definition of how the five major conferences will conduct business.” — From Friday morning’s newsmaking NCAA article, “Division I moves closer to new structure”
