If this isn’t a quintessential moment from this year’s NCAA convention, I don’t know what is.
Interestingly, a previously bland Q&A session didn’t truly heat up until moderator Jean Frankel, the NCAA’s outside management consultant (think “the Bobs” from Office Space), showed a slide entitled “NCAA Core Values” (page 14), first adopted in 2004. She’d made a seemingly innocuous remark about the need to reevaluate the list annually, to which someone replied, astutely, they aren’t core values if you change them every year.
To paraphrase one of Charlie Pierce’s pet expressions, this is your NCAA, folks. Cherish it.
