I nominate John Calimari to be the president of the NCAA or its successor

The NCAA has apparently rejected Calimari's advice on reforms, according to BSPN here

Calimari has offered some suggestions for change to the way the NCAA is doing business, but the NCAA refuses to listen to him. I think he is the perfect guy for the job. Calimari knows better than anyone else how to exploit the system ("exploit the system" being a euphemism for "cheating and escaping punishment even after you get caught"). Who better to start the reforms? The problem evidently is that the NCAA sees no need to change.

Maybe the plan is for the super schools or super conferences to withdraw from the NCAA and create their own system. If the top 30 or 40 or 50 basketball and football schools announced they were leaving the NCAA and forming some other sort of cartel, it would take about 20 minutes for the NCAA to collapse and then something new could be created.

I am all for that. One thing that Calimari thought was necessary which totally shocked me was that the governing body should have the power to subpoena. I think he's serious, and he would be the perfect guy to fix what needs fixing.
