The NCAA and Transparency: We Offer Two Ideas for Free

ESPN.com reported NCAA president Mark Emmert, in a Saturday (February 12, 2011) meeting of Associated Press sports editors on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis, “admitted transparency is critical to the future of the NCAA, though he doesn’t yet know the best way to accomplish that goal”. If Dr. Emmert would ask the professionals at the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm for our opinion, we would advise him transparency starts with educating the media and public on the enforcement and student-athlete reinstatement processes. For example, the NCAA could release an annual report on the enforcement process (e.g., cases processed, trends). In addition, the organization’s television partners could broadcast a mock hearing of the NCAA Committee on Infractions. We are available to provide more suggestions should the NCAA decide to contact us.
