  On August 7, 2014, the NCAA voted to give the members of its five biggest conferences a lot more autonomy in how they run their programs--especially when it comes to money for athletes.  The decision could usher in major changes in intercollegiate athletics.  One of the college officials who voted for the change was Kennesaw State University president Dr. Daniel Papp.  He spoke with WABE's Denis O'Hayer about the reasons for his vote, and about the future of college sports.
