Mark Emmert and MSU


Well-known member
USA today running a story on Mark Emmert, NCAA President and his past misdeeds. No wonder the NCAA has been grasping at straws for over a year trying looking for hot dog buns in the tailgate area, he and Isch are probably still butt sore over The Streak:

The NCAA ruled that Montana State was guilty of a "lack of institutional control" in 1993 — the same time Emmert belonged to the university's senior management team along with Jim Isch, now Emmert's chief operating officer at the NCAA. The case related to academic fraud involving an assistant men's basketball coach and a recruit. The NCAA didn't rule on the case until after Emmert left for UConn in 1995. Emmert, who was Montana State's provost and vice president for academic affairs, told USA TODAY Sports he wasn't aware of the case and he did not oversee athletics at Montana State.

ATLANTA – NCAA President Mark Emmert is defending his record amid complaints about the way the organization has investigated wayward schools, as well as a newspaper report that questioned his leadership in previous jobs.
Emmert held a 45-minute news conference Thursday during the Final Four that turned contentious at times. In fact, he fired a parting shot at a reporter: "I know you're disappointed, but I'm still here."
In particular, the NCAA has come under fire for violating its own policies while investigating the scandal involving a Miami booster. Emmert says the NCAA acknowledged its mistakes and made the necessary changes.
In addition, Emmert dismissed a USA Today story that accuses him of shirking responsibility for problems at Connecticut, LSU and Montana State under his watch.
