NCAA News: Commish Mark Emmert considering leaving his position?


    According to @SportsbyBrooks, a writer for FoxSports.com, there could be some changes coming to the face of the NCAA:

    But just just a few hours after those tweets were posted, Joe Schad of ESPN apparently spoke with Mark Emmert, who had this to say:

    So there’s that.

    This could very well be just a rumor, or it could be Emmert trying to deflect until a resolution is actually achieved and they find a replacement if he is indeed leaving. He wouldn’t be the first person in a position of power in NCAA sports to be like, “Guys, I totally am not leaving, this is nonsense!” to turn around a week later and be like, “So uh, ‘member when I said I wasn’t going anywhere? Well…”

    For now, taking either of these tweets with a grain of salt is probably the best until we get more word of what it going on.

    But let me be the first to tell you that should Emmert step down from is position as commissioner…it will basically be the second coming of Christ at USC and everyone in Trojan Nation will rejoice. Being that he was the person that doled out USC’s completely egregious violations, there is not a single fan of the Trojans who would be sad to see him go. In the mean time, we will keep following this story and provide updates as it plays out.

    Sports By Brooks is one of those dudes who keeps firing until he hits something, then he thinks he looks like a genius. He’s a douche. Plus, seriously: “Sports by Books Twitter Exclusive” prefacing your tweets? Freaking dumb. Hate that dude, he’s the Internet-only version of Skip Bayless.
