The NCAA’s czar of PR as back at it just in time for the Final Four.
In a conversation with Andy Katz, the President of the NCAA talked about a world where college basketball and football stars are paid. Those in favor of this movement believe the NCAA can find a way to share more than one billion dollars in revenue. Emmert does not see it that way. In fact, he believes it would force AD’s to cancel other athletic programs.

Using Title IX is another shield for Emmert. If Emmert and his highly paid colleagues put their brains together to think of a solution, rather than another excuse, they might be able to actually solve this problem.
