TWITTER REAX: Emmert and the NCAA are getting generally positive reactions on Twitter for imposing the sanctions. NFL Network's Albert Breer wrote, "NCAA deserves credit today. This move could open a Pandora's box for them, as far as oversight. And they had the guts to move forward." ESPN's Dave Telep: "Prefer strong leadership. Roger Goodell, Mark Emmert. Popular or not, these guys seem to have solid compass for tough decisions." ESPN's Desmond Howard: "Applause for Mark Emmert (and NCAA) for 'walking the walk'. The toothless committee just grew fangs overnight." NBA.com's David Aldridge: "Can't believe I'm writing this. The NCAA got this, pretty much, correct. Allowing the current players to transfer immediately is imperative." ESPN's Mark May: "Wow the NCAA stepped up and followed up." CBSSports.com's Gregg Doyel: "Mark Emmert just won the press conference. Drop the mic and walk away, Emmert." ESPN's Jemele Hill: "NCAA President Mark Emmert just dropped the mic on Penn State. Wow." SI.com's Andy Staples: "The NCAA is going to handle stuff that matters now? Awesome. Keep doing it and quit acting like a kid committed murder if he sold a jersey." However, FoxSportsOhio.com's Pat McManamon wrote, "Mark Emmert says ALL the right things, but NCAA has way more garbage going on to be considered group of high integrity." Author Dave Kindred: "Emmert insults our intelligence by insisting the NCAA wants football in its proper place in the academy. #TooLateBy100Years."
