“Now watch as I put my career in a choke hold and slowly drain the life from it.” – Mark Emmert
Since the days of Enes Kanter, all of our Big Blue Nation citizens have known that Mark Emmert is a joke of an NCAA president. While the NCAA has plenty of faults, allowing this guy to run things has got to be one of the worst ones ideas ever.
Emmert’s big controversy of the day is currently the Miami issue where the NCAA royally screwed the pooch. This ordeal goes back to the Nevin Shapiro ponzi scheme case in which he was rolling over for the feds and spilling the beans left and right. This was where all that Clint Hurtt talk came from. I’ll spare you the details, but recently Miami has attempted to get the case against it dismissed. Read more on the controversy here. But that’s not the point of this post.
Today, Emmert took to a press conference. In this press conference, Mark Emmert channelled Kentucky’s very own Rand Paul and babbled in filibuster fashion to avoid questioning from the press. The press conference tok place in ATL at the Final Four, but with the Miami stuff, the firing of the chief of rules enforcement, and now the Auburn stuff, Emmert surely expected to get hammered by the media. Instead, he continued to talk and talk and talk … and talk some more. Eventually the question time came and he was like a deer in the headlights.
