The NCAA is taking its first step towards cleaning up college athletics

The NCAA is taking its first step towards cleaning up college athletics. The NCAA is now giving conferences the option of adding $2,000 in spending money to athletic scholarships.

Schools will also be allowed to award scholarships for multiple years, instead of annually. Off the field, players must maintain a higher grade point average and schools could be banned from the post season if they don't meet academic benchmarks.
