Which college sports power schools voted against 4-year scholarships?

Many schools didn't even support the option for four-year scholarships in 2012, much less making them mandatory.

One of the biggest points of contention at Wednesday's Senate hearing on college sports was Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) admonishing NCAA president Mark Emmert for not publicizing which schools tried to ban their peers from giving out four-year scholarships (or scholarships that couldn't be revoked after a season just for athletic reasons).

That vote, taken in 2012, saw 62.12 percent of schools — just short of the 62.5 percent needed — attempt to override legislation to allow four-year scholarships. McCaskill's point: Emmert keeps saying mandatory four-year scholarships are coming, but why should we believe that if so many schools tried to veto them from even being a possibility?

Emmert noted that most of the schools who attempted to veto that legislation were small schools who would soon be governed differently from the big ones, but a look back at the vote shows only 53 percent of power conference schools voted to allow four-year scholarships at all (much less give them out). Only a handful of schools currently give out four-year scholarships as an institution-wide policy. Four of the five power conferences did vote to allow them, with the Big 12 being the only holdout. You can see the whole voting list here, with the power conference schools charted below.
