NCAA President Gets His Teeth Kicked In By Twitter Users


There are few organizations with a better hustle than the NCAA.

The NCAA earns billions off the back of a free labor force while posing as non-profit under the guise of amateurism.

I’d keep that going if I were them.

NCAA President Mark Emmert was on the Mike & Mike radio show this morning conducting a legitimate interview when things turn funny.

For whatever reason, someone thought it was a good idea to open the floor to Twitter for questions.

Ask the NCAA President anything! Anybody?

More than a few people had a question for Mark Emmert.

Bad idea whoever made that decision. The mini-blogosphere is home to a snarky bunch. We should know that by now.

Here were the best questions posed to the always honorable NCAA President:

This person wonders how Emmert can lay his head down at night with all the bad he brings to the world.

This is honestly a good question.

@Flyers_Jam cut right to the chase.

The days of the NCAA may be numbered. We can only hope.

The #AskEmmert disaster generated plenty of traction on social media today.

….back to the questions. Jayme, this is hilarious.

Tongue twister for ya Mr. Emmert.

Your’re like a viper sir.

If this were read on air my radio would have shorted out.

And finally, the most basic of question, do you even buy your own B.S.?

Grab yourself a laugh on Friday afternoon and enjoy the #AskEmmert hashtag.
