The NCAA needs a strong leader now more than ever, someone with vision and backbone. So far, President Mark Emmert hasn’t shown any signs of having either.
Had Emmert held his state of the union Thursday, as has been the norm for years, he would have been front and center on a day when little else was going on. He would have had the chance to change the conversation, or at least mount a vigorous defense of his organization.
Instead, he’s not speaking until Sunday morning, a time slot that guarantees no one will hear a word.
Y’all enjoy the game!
