Power 5 Conferences Take Their Ball And Run


Today, the NCAA voted to allow the Power 5 conferences (Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, and ACC) autonomy. This allows them to make their own rules as far as giving players stipends, total cost of tuition, player insurance, recruiting rules, etc. Basically, these conferences can now do what they want. What does that mean for the little guys not in those conferences? They now have to fight for the leftovers of recruits and, well, money. Is this the new university version of “separate, but equal?”
