Emmert’s way of saying you have too much money

I mean, what can you say?

You spend close to $80 million to have somebody blow up your business model, and then, to top that…

Just giving it away.  Might as well stack a big ol’ bunch of money in a pile and set fire to it.

    And that’s what the attorneys did, don’t know if they actually thought for a skinny minute that defending the NIL was credible vs taking on that big pile of ncaa trash cash, hell, even the staff’s that worked for the ncaa did well for them $elve$….can’t take it with you, it’s only contraband…

  2. I bet I could completely drive the NCAA into the ground for way less than they’re paying Emmert. You know, if they’d pay off my car loan and give me UGA season tickets for life, I’d call it square.

  3. I would have cut them a huge deal – I would’ve blown it up for way less than $80mil.

    I know he wasn’t hired for his strategic thinking, but man, that’s some serious incompetence even by the low standards of academic leadership.

  5. Yeah…Kessler was doing it for the children all along. It’s just those pesky expenses he needs to recover. 🙄

    • I will say it again — you have no idea what’s involved in complex antitrust litigation. Those “pesky expenses” you refer to are substantial and are covered out of the attorney’s own pocket.

      Also, if plaintiffs don’t win, he doesn’t get a penny.
