In the wake of several changes in the college landscape, including the adoption of name, image and likeness rules in several states, the NCAA is going to take a close look at how it governs student-athletes.
Per the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com), the NCAA Board of Governors is setting up a constitutional convention in November that is expected to be the "first step toward launching dramatic reform" in how college athletics are governed.
"The goal is to make sure that we can align authority and responsibilities, get that right between campuses and the conferences and the national level," NCAA President Mark Emmert told reporters Friday.
The calls for reform from the Board of Governors come after a June ruling in which the United States Supreme Court unanimously voted against the NCAA's attempt to put a cap on how much money athletes could earn from NIL deals.
There have also been several other notable developments that could change the landscape of college athletics.
