Emmert Discusses Miami Investigation, Defends The Job The NCAA Has Been Doing
Published March 25, 2013
A COUPLE BAD APPLES DON'T SPOIL THE BUNCH: Emmert noted there are around 460 people in the NCAA, and everyone is "running activities all around the country 24/7." He said, "We have very good people that are involved in these activities. The decision of a couple of guys in a single case where the leadership of the organization from the board on down is intentionally hands-off on those investigations -- you don't want the president of the NCAA in the middle of these investigations mucking around with them. The notion that the president is going to be ... involved in the day-to-day conduct of an investigation is not only wrong, it's wrong-headed” ("Mike & Mike in the Morning," ESPN Radio, 3/25).
