New NCAA committee poised to turn college sports upside down

Imagine a college sports world where schools are able to offer every baseball player a full scholarship. Or if a football team’s on-field coaching staff could exceed 25 people.

What if the transfer portal was open to players just three months out of the year? And what if the recruiting calendar featured no evaluation or quiet periods?
