Biggest schools could impact rules

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA's board of directors will vote Aug. 7 on a modified proposal to change how the governing body works.

If approved, athletic administrators and the biggest schools would play a bigger role in rule-making. Schools then would have 60 days to override the decision.

The proposal creates a 24-member board, run primarily by presidents, to ensure the principles of college sports are enforced. But rule-making would be delegated to a new council, composed primarily of athletic directors.

Those from the five biggest conferences would have more voting power than the other five FBS football leagues. Some rules may apply only to the five major conferences.

Athletes would be on both committees.
