The ACC is going to push the NCAA to expand to 72 teams - which would probably mean an extra bid or two for the conference annually - and various other things, including widening the lane a bit, pushing the three point line back a bit and cutting the shot clock to 20 seconds after a missed basket and an offensive rebound.
The league also is looking at gambling and here’s a chance to do something smart.
Commissioner John Swofford is pushing for a 1% “integrity fee” on college sports gambling. Obviously no one knows how much that would amount to but why not that fee and just give it to the athletes? It’s basically found money and it could neatly resolve that issue. And you can reasonably expect some heavy gambling once it’s in place so it could be a very nice, tidy solution which wouldn’t cost the NCAA anything.
