Here is what I just sent:
I again ask that you please request a resignation letter from Mr. Mark Emmert and publicly acknowledge that his organization has shown reckless disregard for integrity. I am appalled that you recently came out in public support on his behalf.

Subject: Please ask for the resignation of Mr. Mark Emmert, President of the NCAA
Thank you for your service to the NCAA.
For the integrity of collegiate athletics and to try to salvage the concept of the student-athlete, please ask for the immediate resignation of Mr. Mark Emmert who can no longer govern the NCAA with any credibility. I am appalled with his demeanor. I am also appalled with how his organization has (ineptly) handled issues at Penn State, UNC Chapel Hill, and Miami (and perhaps other institutions). I would be hard-pressed to find a worse representative to govern collegiate athletics. In my opinion, he needs to be removed from his position without hesitation.
Thank you for your considering my opinion on this matter.
FWIW, here is my letter to Mark Emmert that I just sent:
I have written Professor Simon at Michigan State to ask her to request your resignation letter immediately. I am appalled by and deeply concerned about the actions of your organization and its implications for student athletes. The NCAA, in my opinion, has ineptly (and perhaps corruptly) handled issues at Penn State, UNC Chapel Hill, and Miami and has lost all shred of credibility. I hold you personally responsible.
There is no excuse for this type of behavior:
Please resign for the integrity of college athletics.
Locking this one for reasons mentioned in all-purpose thread pinned at top. You can continue discussion or post other letters there.
