NCAA Releases Recommendations to Modernize Division I

Jan 3, 2023

At the 2022 NCAA Convention, the NCAA ratified a new constitution to simplify and modernize college sports so they could survive major changes — from name, image, and likeness rules to the NCAA v. Alston decision.

Since then, a 21-member Transformation Committee has worked to create recommendations to improve Division I. The committee finally released its complete recommendations on Tuesday and will present them during the NCAA Convention next week.

The recommendations, presented in a 36-page drafted report, would strengthen health and safety guidelines — including a specific focus on concussions.

They would also expand championship brackets — and while it’s unlikely the D-I men’s and women’s basketball tournaments would get bigger, the opportunity is on the table. The recommendations additionally suggested reconsidering how money is distributed throughout the conference.
