NCAA convention affects many

It was a busy three days when delegates
convened at the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) Convention Jan. 6-8 in
Washington D.C., and there is news for any of
the following people:
-If you're a woman athlete, there will be no
national championship in your sport this spring.
-If you're a member of the U.S. Olympic
Committee (USOC), you're being sued.
If you're a fan who wanted some of the
innovative rules introduced in professional
football this fall brought to the college level,
you're out of luck.
If you're a post-season bowl scout, there will
be no early invitations next fall.
If you're a college athletic director, there is
still a limit to the number of scholarships you
can offer in football, but there are still full grants
to athletes in minor sports.
Womens' athletics suffered a minor setback at
the convention after delegates reneged on a
planned pilot program for spring that would have
instituted national championships in womens'
tennis and track.
The action came after a protest by the
Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for
Women (AIAW) who did not want NCAA
sponsorship of the events, and conservative
NCAA delegates forced a third-day resolution to
postpone the program until 1976.
Then the NCAA announced plans to sue the
USOC, challenging amendments adopted at a
USOC meeting in Florida in December.
With the chief provision of the USOC
amendment establishing compulsory arbitration
by the American Arbitration Association of all
disputes between an athlete and any member
sport's organization, the act got the Olympic
committee out of the middle of a long-standing
feud between the NCAA and the Amateur
A number of rule proposals also were rejected
by the NCAA, among them, limited substitution
in football, which would have returned the game
to one platoon as in the 1930s.
Other rule changes getting the axe were
kick-offs from the 35-yard line, sudden death
periods for tie games, and elimination of the free
Some of the significant football rule changes
enacted include strict enforcement of the rule
requiring mouthpieces, establishment of referee
authority to suspend play when time conditions
warrant and cracking down on tear-away jerseys
which leave pads protruding.
The NCAA reestablished the third week in
November as the first date bowl game invitations
can be extended. Last fall bowl officials broke a
verbal agreement by signing teams to play as
early as Nov. 9.
Delegates at the convention also failed to lift
the restriction on the total number of football
scholarships that can be given in one year. Tom
Osborne, UNL football coach, and other coaches,
had expressed hope the rule would be lifted.
Another proposal rejected by the NCAA was
elimination of the full-ride scholarship in all
sports except football and basketball. The move
was designed to help financially burdened
colleges save money.
One last note, when President Gerald Ford
gave his acceptance speech after receiving the
Theodore Roosevelt Award, (The NCAA's
highest honor) he made a slight blunder.
Comparing the presidency to an athletic
director's job at a college, Ford said, "We both
buy aspirin by the six pack and we both have a
Certain Jack of performance," It was supposed to
be permanence instead of performance.
