University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Emmert: “We cannot, at this point, have fall NCAA championships.”

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:

    Too bad he’s not a student of the classics. Because two out of five ain’t bad.

    Ooh – excuse me – no less than ESPN declares that the Emmert has spoken. I guess I had it wrong. There will be no sports.

    You know – except for those that choose to do so. You can read the ESPN op ed that bemoans the lack of centralized leadership in college football.

    FYI – ESPN can’t get a monopoly on college football. Due to that nasty SEC network and such.

      Says someone named “light my fire” hahaha. Most of the violence is coming from alt-right members pretending to be protesters. I saw it myself at a protest.

      The Boogaloos are part of Antifa but the media is saying they are right wing. You could see them working together in Austin, TX a few weekends ago.

    It’s really the only option at this point. Hopefully everyone can recover and the athletes can maintain their focus on academics this semester.

    Not because of this, but how does Emmert still have his job? The guy is terrible.

      As long as the SEC and Clemson are playing, why can’t you have a college playoff? Does anyone else matter?

    Emmett “leading from behind” as usual. Declares we can’t have Fall sports championships AFTER at least 40% of colleges have already cancelled Fall sports.

      What is your point? He said/admitted that their hand was basically forced.

      The point is he hasn’t said a word until now – learn to read.

      Emmert has a plan to once again punish Calipari over the Terrance Jones commitment.
      Stall until it is too late for Cal to find anybody as a replacement. Check !
      Stall some more and hope Sarr jumps to the G league or overseas to play.
      When it is finally a known fact that a BB season can not happen— then and only then will he declare Sarr eligible to b play, and then the ass kissers at ESPN and most of the talking heads will applaude his diligence.

    How about Emmert asking his staff to take about 15 minutes from their busy schedule and review Oliver Sarr’s transfer situation and RELEASE him so he can become an official 2020-21 member of UK’s basketball team. I wouldn’t think it would take more than 15 minutes to clearly determine him being immediately illegible.

    The only team that would have an argument being excluded is Ohio State – not that they would be the favorite. Add them to the mix and you could crown a champion w/o an asterisk – unfortunately that is not going to happen this year. Still, the winner of a playoff with the available conferences would be pretty legit.

      Ohio State can’t complain, the not big ten cancelled football which is a forfeit of every game. The sec will play for “the” national championship.

      Unlikely, but what if the Big 10 plays in the spring? Do you have 2 “champions”?
