Mark Emmert speaks! The NCAA’s head man was spotted on Twitter today discussing the future of college athletics. He unfortunately made the announcement that there won’t be fall NCAA championships of any kind (FBS football is not an NCAA sport so it can still do whatever), saying it’s impossible to declare a true champion with more than half of the schools sitting out.
Emmert did, however, look ahead toward winter sports with optimism. He said winter and spring sports will be prioritized because their seasons were already hit by COVID, and that bubbles and semi-bubbles are on the table if the situation calls for them.
Hear all he has to say in the video below and check the NCAA’s Twitter account at 7:00 p.m. for more:
