NCAA President Mark Emmert says Wednesday that it's important that the NCAA's members abide by its rules. He says college sports will be ``dramatically altered'' if other entities are responsible for deciding what penalties are appropriate.
The NCAA sued Gov. Tom Corbett and state officials Wednesday, saying a law enacted earlier in the day wasn't constitutional.
Corbett's office says the law is ``the right thing to do.''
State and congressional lawmakers have objected to use of the NCAA fine to finance child-abuse prevention efforts in other states.
