In dismissing a motion by the NCAA to prevent football and men's basketball players from legally pursuing...

This is going to be a really bad year for them.
this is only the start, ncaa is going to be screwed after the state of PA case.. the mishandling of the Miami case proves how moronic the current enforcement team is, i'm confident they won't know how to defend themselves.. I'm glad the state issued the claim and not the university, the BOT would most certainly screw it up..
I saw this... could be huge. Even though he isn't the cause, I'm not sure how Emmert still has a job.
Lets hope that he doesn't.
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
Said it before, the time is now for the BOT to fight that consent decree an join in on Corbetts lawsuit
I feel like I should know this, so forgive my ignorance........who fires Emmert?
It's common sense... Something the BOT doesn't have.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Hard to believe a lot of these guys are kings of industry!
Why do I think that Emmert serves at the pleasure of the ADs or Presidents of member schools, or that there is some BOD for the NCAA.... but I really haven't taken the time to look it up.
I think the point the OP is making is the Emmert, even if there's no direct authority who can fire him, should have been forced to step down from his post by now based on the crappy job he's done.
Or it could be that they are kings of industry and that takes precedent over their duties as BOT members... I wouldn't be surprised if they read less than politicians... Could be a hobby/resume/political piece for some of them. I don't think they are doing their jobs as BOT members very diligently.
I'm sure they would act the same way if their companies were attacked!
Don't disagree at all - he should step down. If there is a board or group of presidents who can fire him, you would think it's crossed their mind by now.
On the topic of the OP's link, really curious how this is going to go down. So what happens if the players win the suit, does that mean all athletes get a cut of TV revenues, video games, etc... Not sure I'd like to see this happen, could have some adverse affects on college sports.
The Donald! But seriously probably the same group of effing maroons that gave Em the power to sanction us.
Only god himself-per Emmert
DJHart (OP), could you change "looses" to "loses" in the title thread. I'm OCD. ; )
Actually it says losses, not looses. But I'm all for changing it. I know this is a blog and people don't like grammar police, but we are representing an academic institution.
Ha! Pretty funny I screwed that up. Nice catch. ; )
like most here, I think the NCAA has overstepped their authority and needs to be B%§&" slapped, but athletes getting compensation is a dangerous game. Once that box is opened I think it leads to the end of college football as we know it. The SEC runs rampant on the rest of the game bc they are so much closer to a professional model and their perception of student athlete is different than any other conference. Money talks, so I think football stays, but at what cost. I like the idea of players getting a stipend or a couple hundred a month, but getting paid, how much does everyone get? Do stars get more?
