One of the great mysteries of our time is why the NCAA lets Mark Emmert speak in public. This is breathtakingly clueless:
If college athletics weren’t about selling the best recruits on the opportunity to go pro, the SEC would go out of business tomorrow. Besides that, isn’t college about preparing yourself to go out in the working world?
When you’re so wrapped up in making sure you don’t give in even slightly to attacks on amateurism, this is the kind of gibberish that ensues. If you’re Emmert, silence is better than denial.
