Power conferences in autonomy talks - Friday, January 17, 2014 2:49 PM

SAN DIEGO -- Hundreds of athletic administrators and delegates gathered at the San Diego Convention Center Thursday to begin dialogue that is expected to alter the landscape of Division I athletics.
...The new model would allow the five conferences, referred to as the "well-resourced conferences," to make certain legislative decisions on their own, the two major issues being the full cost of attendance and ongoing education scholarships.
The cost of attendance -- unofficially referred to as a stipend -- would account for miscellaneous costs that full academic scholarships cover but athletic scholarships do not. No actual dollar amount has been proposed, but the cap would be set as the full cost of attendance as designated by the university.

I wonder how long before we see a total break from the NCAA?  College football is big time windshield business while the NCAA sits so far back in the rear view it's almost laughable.
