The NCAA slipped an important announcement by the public last month when the Board of Governors, consisting of 20 college chancellors and presidents, approved a contract extension until 2020 for the organization’s president, Mark Emmert. The board said Emmert had been an integral agent of change during a dramatic transformation of college athletics. Reasonable minds can disagree, but that statement does not fit the evidence of Emmert’s tenure thus far.
