Just posted on Sporting News...... he is going down, and along with it - our sanctions.
NCAA college football news, standings, trade rumors, scores, schedules and more 2012-13 coverage on Sporting News.
Not sure how you got either of those from this article but ok.
Dominate The State
Read the article...doesn't speak well of psu or spanier.
Just because he goes, IF he goes, doesn't automatically mean the PSU sanctions go. Any new President is going to be HIGHLY reluctant to undo anything for any length of time, if at all. I wouldn't ride that pony just yet.
Yes -they basically blast the whole set-up, but this is about damage control. And Emmert will be their fall guy. To me, the only way the NCAA can survive this is to let Emmert go. And doing that puts a bit of doubt about Emmert's actions into the PA lawsuit.....

Yeah, this article is an opinion piece, nothing more.

I think it's a POS too.
I agree...but the more sentiment that is out there that Emmert should be fired, the more I think the Presidents (via the Executive Committee) will oust him; the whole U of Miami mis-handling is BAD press, and I just feel as though they will go into damage control mode. And if they do, I feel that helps our PA case against his actions. Remember, he ignored their own by-laws when he handed down the sanctions. AND he relied on an independent investigation, not their own. He and the NCAA are getting weaker by the day, and articles like this are popping up everywhere.....
While I don't disagree that the public opinion against Emmert is not good right now and also that if he were to get fired it could help PSU. I just don't understand how you got any of that from this article?

Well, perhaps my own opinion is stitched in here too. I'll admit that. But the article does start out saying "of course he should be fired". So it starts off with a slam on Emmert. And it also links to a separate article saying the Miami debacle could cost him his job. And then towards the end it says that, while "useless", forcing Emmert out gives them all cover for what they have allowed to happen. So it infers the damage control I was referring to. Again, I latched onto a few elements in the article, mostly because I want the bastard fired.....and I think that REALLY helps us !!
While I don't fully agree with Bill that Emmert's termination "wins" us the PA case, but it certainly helps. As I recall the facts, Emmert was given carte blanche by the Executive Committee to do what he wanted. The fact that he went outside the scope of the rules, not to mention normal enforcement procedures, in our case, and was then fired a short time later for doing the same (or, listening to him, not knowing that his underlings were doing so) gives us some arrows in the "this went beyond what the parties to the NCAA agreed to" argument, which is the gist of the PA case. In that manner, Emmert's termination HELPS, but it's far from dispositive.

Another scathing article.... Can't imagine he survives this mounting pressure.
...and another. This time from John Feinstein and the Washington Post

As usual, Coach K is spot on in the Feinstein article.
