Big 12 commissioner says NCAA changes needed now

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says significant changes are needed in the NCAA, a belief he shares with commissioners from other power conferences.

Bowlsby and leaders of the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and ACC met about six weeks ago to talk about issues. Bowlsby says the sense is that "transformative change is going to have to happen."

Bowlsby's comments came Monday at the start of Big 12 Media Days at the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive delivered a similar message last week at his league's media days. Bowlsby says there are no conversations about seceding from the NCAA, and that would be only "a last resort."

But Bowlsby says it may be time to consider federation by "size and scope and equity brought to the system" or maybe federation by sport. He says it's unrealistic to manage football and field hockey by the same rules.
