Gordon “I’m just hoping the coach doesn’t dismiss me” Gee mentored Mark Emmert when both were at the University of Colorado a couple of decades ago.
The rest, as they say, is history.

Did Emmert learn enough from his mentor to survive his current controversy?
Does he have magic underwear?
Does he have ruby red slippers?
So long as he doesn’t have ruby red underwear, am I right Damon?
Excellent question! Recent events show that in terms of survivability and moving on up, ruby red slippers work much better than magic pants.
It wont amaze me to someday find out that Emmert’s eventual release by the NCAA was orchestrated by the Machiavellian hand of his successor, Mike Adams, who will “reluctantly accept the challenge of restoring public confidience in this great institution.” Then he’ll hire his wife and throw a big party for his son on the NCAA’s dime.
Mark’s always looking for answers:
“Academic administration intrigued him, but he needed to know more….So Emmert asked Colorado President Gordon Gee if he’d agree to let him shadow the CU president for a year. Gee was already an academic legend,”
