NCAA Bully dictator Emmert's days are #. Powers 2 B working on his "keep quiet" Golden Parachute deal. his terror reign ran off good people.

@spinner941 agree & PSU's penalty will B reduced or they should sue, sue & sue again, as the NCAA understands lawsuits & their chances 2 win
It would be nice if it were true, but Danny Sheridan has a reputation for making things up.
yeah im not buying it until we get a more credible source
Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.
The problem with this tweet is the NCAA thinks their chances to win all the lawsuits is extremely high.
And the NCAA's position seems to be that as long as PSU-related entities "sue, sue, & sue again", they will have no inclination to negotiate to reduce sanctions.
Sheridan made himself sound like an idiot.
Maybe so, but I like how Sheridan called Emmert a "bully Dictator." Brought a smile to my face!
Here is a little off topic but lets say Emmert does go AND the sanctions get reduced immediatley.
Do any of the players who left except for maybe Justin Brown because he was a Sr have any legal gripe saying they changed their world because the sanctions were supposed to be 4 years and now aren't?
I am not advocating that but I know our ever will to sue people as Americans.
If that were the case then Dorian Johnson should sue
Made me laugh.
agreed. I think that was more of an assumption on his part. However, I think he has reason for the first tweet....
Emmert is caught up in a lot within the NCAA and PSU is just one small part of it. He's attempting to maintain the status quo while the flagship conferences who bring in the money are pushing hard for reform. Listen to the SEC commissioner and a few others starting to speak up... these schools want reform and they want it sooner rather than later. The NCAA leadership is made up of only 1/3 from major conferences meaning the 2/3rd majority is from small D1, D2, and D3 schools.... which group do you think has interest in the money generated by minority of large schools? both. which group has the power to take their money and leave? the BCS conferences.
between this and the Obannon case, the NCAA either needs to start playing ball or go back to organizing D2 and D3 championships while making sure that swimmer from lock haven paid for his subway hoggie.
point being, don't confuse any rumors of Emmert possibly being pushed out with the cause being purely Penn State. Like the tweet said, he has run off a lot of good people and lost a lot of support for a lot of reasons.
Absolutely no legal grounds whatsoever. They chose to leave, and "sanctions," per se, are within the realm of possibility at any school, so that sole point is irrelevant.
