DALLAS (AP) - 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.''
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.
