Jay Bilas has a message for NCAA President Mark Emmert

I think it’s safe to say Bilas isn’t a fan of the current Prez.

    Wow! Never see an T.V analyst go after one of the power-to-be with so much vigor. Gotta give Bilas some major props for sending out that tweet.

    So he posted this in the future? It’s only 11:15.

    I like Bilas – he tells it like it is; even though he is a former Dukie and he occasionally says something negative like the Cats, he is usually spot on.

    We’re in the Eastern time zone though, in order for him to be ahead of us he’d have to be overseas.

    The time just proves that Bilas is a little bit ahead of everyone else. I say Bilas for President!!!! Emmert can rub Doug Shows bicep muscles.

    Every time KSR posts a snapshot of someone’s Twitter the time is always ahead of what it is, and every time people have to comment about it being in the future. So it’s still funny to you all, huh?

    Jay Bilas is my favorite Dukie of all time. I can’t believe it but these days Laetner seems like a decent guy too. I’ll never forgive him for what he did to my team when I was 8 years old though….Never. I used to really look up to Richie Farmer as a kid too tho, and it seems now that he’s a grade A Douche Bag

  18. Ouch! That’s 1 Dookie I really like!

    Did you see the one prior? Home run again!

    NCAA Prez Emmert’s best answer on this scandal: “You’re probably asking the wrong guy.” That Emmert is the wrong guy seems quite clear.

    I agree with Gary Williams that College Basketball needs a Commissioner. Jay “Kenesaw Mountain” Bilas has a nice ring to it.

    I agree 100% with Bilas. Emmert’s resignation isn’t an option, it’s a REQUIREMENT. The man has no credibility whatsoever. He’s ruled like a tyrant, playing favorites and acting like there is no such thing as any standards or rules his arbitrary behavior is accountable to. Ohio State? Slap on the wrist for flat out cheating. Dook? Not even any curiosity as to how a player ended up with a piece of jewelry worth tens of thousands of dollars… Kentucky? If a player has a runny nose, WERE investigating it!

    Agree with 14, if you aren’t following Bilas you are just flat out wrong.

    Ive followed Bilas on twitter for a while. He’s spot on about the NCAA and I almost always retweet what he says about them and Emmert inparticular. Everyone else should too. There needs to be a big change how college sports is ran and Bilas knows it. The more people know about it the quicker change will happen.

    Emmert must really be a sack. Michael Adams former president of Georgia thought he was going to become the President of the NCAA. He is worthless backstabing piece…Well he found out that Emmert was he more slick than Adams. They take care of their own…they are classic textbook, central casting Academic. Make the rules up as you go. Leave carnage behind, don’t care the outcome or outfall. The North Carolina academic scandal going all the way back to Dean Smith and Emmert looking the other way on that is grounds for firing period. If that same situation had happened at Kentucky, we would have already been tried and given the death penalty. It appears that nothing will happen to North Carolina. They cheated. They put kids in bogus courses. They broke the rules. They played ineligible players. Dean Smith is one of the biggest ruler breakers of all time, and yet in the eyes of the NCAA he was Mr. Perfect…never did anything questionable. Now Emmert really has no reason to look into the UNC because some whitewashed report says it was not an athletic issue it was an academic issue? Bilas is right. Emmert is a piece and needs to go.
