Envy and jealousy, master of NCAA snark edition

Listen, when it comes to sarcastic takes on Mark Emmert’s organization, I like to think I’m good at it, but I have to tip my cap to Stewart Mandel and his tour de force on the subject today ($$).  A sample:

In an interview with CBS Sports on Tuesday, Mark Emmert called the bill “the single biggest issue” in his near-decade on the job. And it’s easy to see why. Other than his association twice being ruled in violation of federal antitrust law, a football coach at a Pennsylvania university sexually abusing children for decades, a team doctor at a Michigan university sexually abusing female athletes for decades and the FBI conducting an undercover sting against corrupt college basketball coaches, Emmert’s tenure has been fairly uneventful.

I know there’s a certain shooting-fish-in-a-barrel element to this, but still, I can’t help wallowing in it.  Well played, Stewart.

    LOL. On the other hand, from Emmert’s perspective, this is the one that might cost some real money. Which will interfere with the NCAA commitment to education. 😉

    I’ve lightened up a lot on this issue. And it was good to hear yall kind of laugh about it on Chapel Bell podcast. Whatever happens, I just hope it doesn’t ***k up all the fun.

    How long before they hire Mandel as a pr spokesman? They hired Thomas Mars when he had success dealing with them.

    Pedophilia, sexual assault, corruption, and disregard for laws being swept under the rug.

    What is, “What do politicians and the NCAA have in common?” Alex

    The others only damage the student athletes, this law will damage his pocketbook. Now we know what is priority.

    Well, there’s also the thing where one of the top academic public institutions in the nation, UNC, a perennial contender for the national championship in basketball, got caught red-handed committing academic fraud to help its basketball program primarily and the NCAA under Emmert did……nothing.
