To answer your question, or to carry the final word?

Maybe he means that, by definition, a committee cannot have the "lone, final word".

See above.

There needs to be a boss. Committees are fine and dandy for discussion purposes, but when it comes down to the last word, it cannot be a simple majority of any more than one.

There needs to be one person who is responsible for a decision, not a group of posturing folks who simply point fingers when an unpopular opinion is acted upon.

The problem is the NCAA in general is a very politically and financially motivated group that hedges every turn made during the course of just about any action. No NCAA committee/group is ever at fault, but there always seems to be a scapegoat, and I'm not talking about softball.

Then I would guess that Sharon Cessna, based on her duties, would be the closest.

Since I don't know; does ASA have a "boss" as you've described?

For membership, that would be C Cress. But I don't think you can compare the two.
