72: The NCAA Constitution Committee: Preserving the NCAA Administrative State

The format of this episode is a bit unusual. When I initially recorded (November 8th), the NCAA had not released its draft constitution. However, before going live with the episode, the NCAA released its draft constitution. My original episode was a discussion of the composition and purpose of the Constitution Committee and recorded with the assumption that the Committee would not release its work product until November 15th. After reading the draft constitution, I decided that my “set up” episode was relevant. I discuss the composition of the Committee and its purpose. I use a September 10th interview that Bob Gates gave to an NCAA podcast as the launchpad for my analysis. This episode is a predicate for an analysis of the draft constitution.
