So who is going to be new NCAA President?
https://theathletic.com/223555/2018/01/2...s-in-2010/


From the link:

Quote:Though the NCAA has announced its intention to open an investigation into Michigan State’s athletic department, it remains unclear what exactly the purview of the investigation would be.

And, more importantly, why it’s taken so long to get involved.

NCAA president Mark Emmert was specifically alerted in November 2010 — six months after he was hired as the organization's president — to 37 reports involving Michigan State athletes sexually assaulting women.

My early guess is Jack Swarbrick from Notre Dame.

Barack Obama.

He needs a job. He has zero ***** to give. He went to Pepperdine; his brother-in-law flamed out of coaching so that conflict's not relevant. He knows sports, but isn't out of the sports-industrial complex. Most of all, as a Democratic ex-President he has the best chance of getting deference from the academic mandarins who control the universities that make up the NCAA.

Give him the powers Kennesaw Mountain Landis had after the Black Sox Scandal, and treat this as an existential moment for college sports on the same level as that one. Blow it all up.

...this is all making me wonder if it's even worth it for my alma mater to try be good at sports. The whole institution is rotten beyond even what I thought. Paying players is nothing compared to this.

And this is different from Washington D.C. how?

Emmert can not survive this. Who has the gravitas to save the NCAA?

Sports reflect our society.

Change has to begin somewhere. Pointing over there or over there where bad stuff happens doesn't alter the facts: as long as they can get us to cheer for the green and white or the blue and white or the little D or the little R, outrage will pile on outrage.

I never thought a university could top Penn State for utter filth and degradation. Michigan State is giving them competition.

Maybe it's time to stop cheering and start screaming.

Or, to suggest a name from the other party, who is in academia and also knows college athletics: Condi Rice.

Of course, neither one would be interested in that mess of a job.

I was merely pointing out that when Barney Frank utilized under aged male pages it apparently wasn't enough. When Monica got a stained blue dress it apparently wasn't enough. And there have been plenty of republican escapades as well especially in the House.

I'm just saying why are we acting so shocked? This corruption strikes at the soul of who we are. Laws have to be enforced without regard to personality, position, or profit. To do less is the essence of corruption.

Yet in each of these cases either a personality (Paterno, Frank, Clinton) or a position (President, Congressman, University President, Athletic Director, Head Coach), or profit of the University or Athletics Department, was placed ahead of the rights of the victims.

You suggest screaming. I'm merely saying that the screaming should have started at least 60 years ago. And it should have been followed by an organized public demanding accountability of all of its citizens, and later corporate leadership.

Hell, we even had wholesale rape of the public trust without outrage. Remember too Big to Fail?

BTW: Michigan State is going to be a combination of Penn State and Baylor. How soon we forget the Bears. This is both the institutional control of Penn State covering up crimes, and the assaults on coeds via Baylor. Only now the very institution that was so willing to punish Penn State is found to be guilty of the same crimes leveled against that school's administration. Hypocrisy knows no bounds apparently!

You can tell when a job and moment is above someone's head. Believe me.
The next President will have to handle not only the sexual harassment issues and pay for play but also labor issues and concussion issues in football. All while managing the money. It's no small task.
