On M&M a little after 8
keep us posted what he says stuck at work and cant listen
Update please from anyone who hears it
What do we expect him to say?
He's up next.
"They NCAA and Emmert are hypocrites."
"Phila was right... donkey show, no doubt."
I just tuned in....
Paraphrasing from Bilas comments...
"I have never heard a leader, who has been on the job as long as he has, mention 'on my watch' more than he has. My question is, what is he watching?"
"He has created an environment where he is isolated from responsibility and accountability." (Only 2 people report to Emmert --- COO Isch and Remy.)
"The credibility of the NCAA is gone."

"[Emmert] should have known."
2 people report to mark emmert... 2! He's insulated himself so much that he can be responsible for nothing. paraphrasing.
Funny that Miami of all programs could be the ones to embarrass the NCAA so bad
More Bilas (paraphrasing)...
"I do think there will be change. Conference commissioners are tired of this. The NCAA has been a scandal-producing machine. Now they have their own scandal."
"Enforcement should be out of the building altogether." (instead of an inside job)
"The right thing should be for Emmert to step down but I'm not holding my breath for him to do the right thing."

That last comment was great. People nationally are well aware now what a joke the NCAA is and what a joke the sanctions against penn state were.
The problem is Mike and Mike during Bilas' interview was very soft on the NCAA. Greenberg actually said something like - I'm not one to call for anyone's job - in referring to Emmert after Bilas.
Bilas is critical BUT NO ONE else on ESPN is. I'm expecting Jay to tone it down as ESPN executive scold him.
I like the point about using an Arbitrator the way the olympics does. If the olympics does something better than you then you are struggling. NCAA is scared to use an outside arbitration firm because they're scared they may lose and lose power.
I heard Greeny an hour before Bilas was on. He said he doesn't think it's his place to call for anyone's job. But in this case, he thinks Emmert should lose his job, whether he steps down or is fired.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
No, it's not his place to call for anyone's job. But he apparently has no problem calling for all of his listeners to castigate a man who did innumerable good in his life. How easily we forget that he was a leading part of the Joe witch hunt mere months ago. That dweeb shouldn't act so sanctimonious. Calling for a man's job is beyond him, but forming a lynch mob is just fine. Hypocrite.
"A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep"- Glenn Carson
Right on. I am boycotting the Mike and Mike show and all the ESPN talk shows after how they responed to Jay Paterno last week. Almost all of them just kept spewing false information as fact.
Of course, I broke down today to watch Bilas.
He did call for his job, he just said he usually feels like it's not his place. But he definitely called for Emmert to be fired.
And they called the NCAA a joke. Both have been extremely critical of the NCAA and specifically Emmert.
I feel I should know this, but who fires Emmert?
I believe there is some kind of board that respresents the member schools that makes that decision.
Jay Bilas ripped the NCAA during college gameday this past saturday ... I think he was referencing the way they inappropriately handled a Texas Basketball Players status.
He is a smart guy.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
I hate Golic so much. But here it is.
ESPN CBB analyst Jay Bilas dishes on the mistakes that the NCAA made in its investigation of Nevin Shapiro and Miami, Mark Emmert's future and more.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Bilas will not be scolded by an ESPN exec.
He isn't some moronic blowhard with no intellect who spews whatever his boss wants him to say.
Maybe they would do that to Rinaldi and Mark Schwarz, but not Bilas.
Bilas isn't a punk bitch, and always keeps his opinions professional - no matter how harsh or strong-worded.
ESPN already tried that with Dan Patrick after he Mike Leach fiasco and it didn't work out for them. It would be 10x as bad for them if they tried that stunt on Bilas.
edit: please don't use language on the boards

So you won't accept the possibility that some people, intelligent ones, might be having second thoughts on an issue? Keep in mind, there was a stampede when the entire story broke and not a lot of factual information was nor still is, public knowledge. If Bilas has reconsidered his position on the PSU scandal, then I congratulate him. I don't believe he's still castigating JoePa. If you look at his Twitter postings, I think he's seen the NCAA for what people here think it is. That's a separate issue from the scandal.
Something I don't understand on these boards is posters attack Spanier, the governor, the NCAA, etc. but I hardly see anyone attacking Sandusky or his dear wife who brought the entire institution to its knees. This is EFD fellas. Every Day this has to be dealt with. No one has even threatened the guy.
You should re-read the post I was replying to. Everything above was in reference to Greenberg, not Bilas.
As for your last sentence, are you saying you want people to openly threaten Jerry or Dottie Sandusky on here? Let's try to keep things somewhat rational, shall we?
