HOOVER, Ala. (AP) Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey echoed the NCAA president's call for potential changes in how college athletics are governed Monday, though he did not endose a breakaway by the five most powerful leagues. Sankey spoke about the need for change to open SEC Media Days, less than a week after NCAA President Mark Emmert said it's time to consider decentralizing and deregulating college sports in a shifting of the traditional power structure. Emmert's stance, Sankey said, ''does speak to we're going to have to administer this differently'' but not necessarily formally separating Power Five conferences from the pack.
