I think once you start arguing with and become hated by nationally relevant sports journalists; your days in charge are going to be limited.
Honest Mark Emmert @HonestMrkEmmert
#Rutgers Video? Poppycock. I won't believe anything until I see it in writing from Mr. #Freeh.
And after that terrific showing, I'm off to continue stealing lunch money from a whole bunch of student-athletes.
"I’m very proud of my record every place I’ve been." - because it's Mark Emmert: 1, places on the ladder to fame: 0.
These #NCAA ethics clauses only matter for other people.
My bad, guys. Quote should have been: "If you’re not getting sued today. You’re not doing anything WRONG." #Emmert
Dennis Dodd needs to fire back and really put the pressure on
I'm really kind of amazed how he fired at the media like this........we all know he's arrogant beyond belief but that wasn't arrogant, it was stupid. The media will continue to hammer now until they get their prize, which is a new NCAA prez. It's almost like they're getting him to crack.
Onward State @OnwardState 3m Jay Paterno argues for more transparency in vote tabulation for the #PSUBoT election. http://onward.st/XgiBHN
Because they are just like him. Arrogant elitists. The funny thing is the BOT agrees with this DB.
There's no chance Emmert doesn't burn for this. He can destroy "monsters" (PSU, the U, etc.) using whatever phony BS tactics he wants, but once he bites the media's hand like that...he's overstepped the boundaries. It's quite possible he'll never work again except as a consultant.
You know it's bad when you have to throw your employment status in a reporter's face and then boast about getting sued (to show that you are "doing something"). Clown.
Agree 100%. Once you pretty much show up the media they will come after you. Emmert is running scared now.
Not only that but it is obvious the NCAA has made some mistakes. This attitude won't sit well with others on thier board I would imagine.
"Geez Mark, we try to back you but you can't go around popping off to guys from CBS Sports".......
John Urschel @mathmeetsfball 26m Handed in my final papers for master's thesis. Lady at the grad school office saw the name on the sheet, looked up, and said "Already?". Yup
My head is starting to really, really hurt keeping this all straight.
Media narrative calling for the firing of JoePa = Very Bad
Media narrative calling for the firing of Pres. Erickson = Good
Media narrative calling for the firing of some PSU BOT = Good
Media narrative calling for the firing of Rutgers' Rice = Bad
Media narrative calling for the firing of Emmert = Very Good
I think I should just head over to the Beer thread and drown my typing fingers in various IPA suggestions.
You know what - alternatively, he may have already been fired/resigned. That could very well be a last act of defiance from Emmert; maybe he really is going to be sacrificed by the mechanized god of college athletics. It certainly sounds like a giant EFF YOU from someone with nothing to lose.
