Twitter Tuesday - Let's All Laugh At Mark Emmert Edition

Unless you’ve been hiding under the proverbial rock the last month or so, you are very much aware of the circus the NCAA’s investigation into Miami has become.  Well, today the walking jokes from the NCAA announced the findings of the external investigation, into the investigation.  Front and center was public enemy #1 in Happy Valley, NCAA dictator president Mark Emmert, who took questions, made statements, and generally stuck his foot in his mouth on a conference call.  What follows are unedited accounts from various media types.

Maybe I should’ve saved this gem for later, but who is to say you make it that far. Surely the irony is not lost on Penn Staters.

Well of course not. Doing that would almost certainly open yourself up to so much more criticism. Besides, Mr. Emmert seems to be drumming up enough negativity on his own.

I’m not sure what else to say about this. Although, we have established the NCAA is at least smarter than Bobby Petrino. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

I mean, I assume this is in regards to the Miami debacle, but in the future Mark, you might want to clarify which cluster**** you are referring to.

You mean when they threaten a school with a multi-year “death penalty” (and then deny it) to force unprecedented sanctions down their throat, despite no actual violation of NCAA rules?

No comment, just……no comment.

Cultural issues you say? This one might actually be a legit problem though.

I assume this goes for more than just this call?

Of course not, you will only do that when you can cram it down some unsuspecting, and out of his league President is on the other end.

Of course not. We established earlier there is no culture problem in Indy!

Pretty sure nothing sums this up better.

OK, this sums it up much better. Plus the author is pretty funny. We should all follow that guy.
