Arne Duncan credits the NCAA for picking up the pace to fix college sports. He just believes more needs to be done in 2012. The U.S. education secretary called on Bowl Championship Series schools and conferences to put some of their revenue into an education fund and openly backed the two hot-button issues at this week\'s annual NCAA convention: a $2,000 allowance toward the full cost of attendance and multi-year scholarships. \"A couple of these things are steps in the right direction, and I think the NCAA has moved faster than people expected,\" Duncan said Wednesday. \"I think the problems are very real, and I think the cost of inaction is very high.\" NCAA President Mark Emmert started the latest push by bringing roughly 50 university leaders to Indy for a presidential retreat in August. Since then, a number of legislative changes have been approved including tougher academic standards for athletes, making graduation rates commensurate with postseason eligibility, offering additional money to cover living expenses, and scholarships that cannot be taken away because of poor performances on the playing field. More changes are on the way. The Division I Board of Directors will get updates from subcommittees that have been asked to shrink the massive 400-plus-page rulebook, change the penalty structure for rule-breakers and speed up infractions cases. Duncan offered another proposal. \"The BCS conferences should set aside some of that bowl money for a student-enhancement fund and there are proposals out there that they can look at to make it happen,\" Duncan said. When asked later about how much of those millions of dollars are currently going to academic support, Duncan responded: \"Zero, and I\'m 100 percent sure on that. It\'s just misplaced priorities.\" While most schools have strongly agreed with academic reforms already approved, there has been a backlash against the two other rules changes approved in October: the $2,000 stipend and multi-year scholarships. The board will discuss its options on those override petitions at Saturday\'s meeting. Duncan offered public support for both and even urged college presidents and chancellors not to let such arguments bog things down. \"The narrative for 2012 in college sports is all about the deal; it\'s all about the brand. It\'s about the big-time college football programs saying \'Show me the money,\'\\u2009\" Duncan told an audience of about 500 NCAA delegates during the keynote luncheon. \"Too often, large, successful programs seem to exist in an insular world, a world of their own. Their football and basketball players, sometimes even their coaches, are given license to behave in ways that would be unacceptable elsewhere in higher education or in society at large.\" he said. \"Nothing, I mean nothing, does more to erode public faith in intercollegiate sports than the appearance of a double standard.\"
