The NCAA rules at the pleasure of its members.

The members are the universities. The NCAA is not a disembodied entity. If the NCAA is weak and feckless, it’s because the universities like it that way.


The number of members is huge, FBS, FCS, DivII and Div III

That's a lot of schools with varying interests and who need some sort of umbrella organization to make rules, hold championships, etc.

So obviously not everybody is happy, but I'd bet most College Presidents see the issue as one of ongoing reform rather than dismantling of the NCAA.

I'm not sure that if say the Power 5 + Notre Dame group left the NCAA created their own organization that we would have a better organization with better, fairer rules, more even enforcement, etc.


Why would the Power 5 schools leave?

There has been talk in recent years

That rules that are good/fair for lower divisions are not for the power 5 teams. The big stopping point though is the NCAA Basketball tournament.
