Larry Scott of the Pac-12 joined the chorus of commissioners calling for sweeping change in the NCAA, and said it can happen without confrontation and with the five most powerful football conferences still competing on the field with the other five.

The Pac-12 announced plans Tuesday to commission an independent review of officiating during the league tournament after comments by the conference's coordinator of officials raised questions about its integrity.
Former Pac-12 Conference coordinator of officials Ed Rush says he was just trying to "lighten the mood" in a tense locker room when he "jokingly" made offers of $5,000 or a trip to Mexico for any referee who disciplined Arizona coach Sean Miller during the league tournament.
Joking or not, perception proved to be too much for Ed Rush to remain the Pac-12's Conference's coordinator of officials.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said Tuesday that comments made by the conference's coordinator of officials are "not a fireable offense" and have been "mischaracterized" as targeting only Arizona coach Sean Miller during internal meetings before the league tournament.
