It looks like the NCAA is going to make some worth-while changes or at least they are looking to make some changes.

Bring back athlete-only dorms with unlimited food. Let coaches talk publicly about their recruits. Allow transfers in all sports to immediately play.

Those are among the ideas being discussed as the NCAA tries to produce a slimmer and more efficient rulebook, according to documents obtained by The Birmingham News.

An NCAA working group that's studying current rules released concepts to schools last week for discussion. The goal is to crack down on what the NCAA perceives as major threats to its principle of amateurism while legalizing smaller issues, some of which are currently unenforceable. "It's very complicated to take a 400-plus-page rule book and shrink it down to something sensible," NCAA President Mark Emmert said in The Indianapolis Star last month. "But we're going to do it."

Seeing will be believing, although living as close to Barad Dur as I do (I live only about 70 miles from the NCAA headquarters), I have read enough stories similar to this that I almost believe it.

However, this would go against the First Rule of Bureaucracies: Never, EVER relinquish power. Thus, I remain extremely skeptical that any real reform will happen.
