Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.
Amid massive structural changes in college athletics (realignment, NIL, legal challenges, etc.), and regularly scheduled ones (the start of the Fall sports season, the start of class, etc.), members of the D-I Transformation Committee are continuing to talk and work towards their original mission...redefining what it means to be a D-I institution.
As the D-1 Transformation Committee evaluates proposals regarding transfers, infractions, coaching staff limits, and other reform concepts, the group is also focusing on reevaluating D-I membership benchmarks.
Those recommendations aren't finalized, and won't be finalized for several months, but industry sources have told Extra Points that in addition to proposals that have been reported elsewhere, two other elements are considered likely to be a part of the final recommendations.
