8E! --August 10, 1975 Sunda\(,az*tt*-Hail ------------------------- -- Chartesfcxi A* CRISIS NCAA Convenes This Week to Try And Save Schools from Bankruptcy 'By Craig Ammerman The Attociated Preu Against threats that the superpowers will walk out if too many cuts are made, the NCAA convenes this week a critical economic summit that will be asked to cut scholarships, coaching staffs and recruiting costs and thus save many colleges from athletic bankruptcy. When the conference in Chicago is over, the games students play will be changed. Football and .basketball will suffer some; the minor sports which account for no ticket sales may be shoved rapidly toward the intramural level. Recession and inflation, combined with the trend that made the upper echelon of college athletics a multi-million dollar business, have left more than 80 per cent of the NCAA's 700 members deep in athletic red ink and strapped with orders from above to do something about it. College presidents who didn't mind a $200,000 athletic deficit during the boom years of the 1960s now must balance budgets because the recession of the 1970s has cut government aid and private donations, and inflation has dramatically increased costs. The chancellor of one major private university, who asked not to be identified, said, "If major cuts aren't made, we will be forced to get out of the intercollegiate athletic business. We're losing $300,000 a year on athletics and that cannot continue. It's either bite the bullet now or quit soon." 'Must Share the Burden' "All of higher education is facing a serious financial crisis, and intercollegiate athletics must assume its share of the burden," said Wayne Duke, commissioner of the Big Ten. "We need a concerted, dignified effort to restore sanity to financial conditions surrounding intercollegiate athletics." Among the 73 economic amendments to be placed before the convention are a series of 20 proposals approved by the NCAA Council, the organization's most powerful group. Most of them received approval in a straw vote of athletic directors'. They would reduce the number of football scholarships from 105 to 90, cut basketball scholarships from 18 to 16, limit any school to seven assistant football coaches and one assistant basketball coach and cut the maximum number of scholarships in sports other than football and basketball from just over to 200 to 80. Other proposals with broad support would eliminate the $15 monthly allowance which scholarship athletes now get, would limit any college to two offcampus meetings with a recruit and would allow recruits to visit only four colleges before signing a scholarship. No Letter Jackets, Sweaters Football travel squads would be limited to 48 players and basketball to 10. A school could only dress 60 players for a home football game and 13 for a basketball game. Schools would no longer supply their athletes with letter jackets and sweaters. If approved, these measures would start football on a return to the one-platoon system in which athletes must play both offense and defense and continue a growing trend toward major cuts and, in some cases, elimination of minor sports which do not produce revenue. The crisis point of the convention--and the trigger which could cause the major schools to seriously consider abandoning the NCAA--will come over three proposals that would force the superpowers to divide their television and bowl money with all schools. The proposals are being made by Long Beach State President Stephen Horn and by the Pacific Coast Athletic Association. They would divide bowl and television money in such a way as to cost a school such as Oklahoma $450,000 or more of what it now gets for appearing on TV. Peon State in Black Penn State's athletic budget was in the black last year because the school's football team earned more than $1 million from its TV appearances and a bowl game. Without that money--most of which would be denied by the Long Beach proposals--Penn State's budget will be in the red this year. These three proposals are the ones which have caused major conferences to study setting up their own athletic association, one that would separately negotiate with networks and bowl committees. If that happened, the NCAA would cease to exist on a major level. Some schools and conferences were reported planning to try and stop the Long Beach proposals from even reaching the convention by claiming they were not properly drawn up. "The membership's thinking has been sharply attuned to the financial emergency facing intercollegiate athletics," said Walter Byers, long-time executive director of the NCAA who proceeded to attack the Long Beach proposals. "The one unfortunate development is that a few ill-conceived proposals, submitted at the llth hour, are going to divert the discussions from costsaving measures to a broad reexamination of the purposes of the NCAA," Byers said.
