@JayBilas: Go to http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH, type in "Manziel" in upper right search box, hit enter. This comes up. http://t.co/N7KNvXIu24

Bilas is a great Twitter follow.

He crushes the NCAA daily...its hilarious.

It really is. Sprinkled in those tweets about the NCAA search box was one of him and Mark Emmert.

@ESPNAndyKatz: NCAA pres Mark Emmert comes out strong saying NCAA won't be in business of selling school jerseys. He said NCAA will exit that business.

Absolutely hilarious.

The Athletic (paywall): With Mark Emmert retiring, who looks presidential? Identifying 10 top candidates.

 

Who the next president is, and his/her background, might say a lot about where the organization sees itself in the future.

Condoleezza Rice would be perfect to stick at the top of the rotting, fetid corpse that is collegiate athletics.

If the NCAA wants to survive intact, it needs to appoint someone who understands that modern day college athletics cannot exist as a one-size-fits-all entity. The same rules that apply to the University of Maryland aren't going to work for Goucher College, and vice versa.

 

As much as people don't want change, it's inevitable. While I don't think the day is on the near horizon, I do think the endgame is that we'll see players in the big conferences, primarily the revenue sports, that are paid employees of the school. Might as well prepare for it now, before the courts force you to adapt all at once and all hell breaks loose. (see: NIL)

Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker will be the next NCAA president. He’ll take over March 1. His second term as governor ends in January.

 

Interesting choice. No prior college administrative experience, which I think is actually a plus. He, his wife, and his two sons are all former college athletes. As a two-term Republican in a heavily Democratic state, he’s very likely a pragmatic person.


Grant Hill was apparently a finalist. He’d have been a great choice, but imagine he’d be way too pro players for the NCAA.
