Paul Finebaum is not a fan of Mark Emmert. Personally neither am I. Never met the guy but he has been at the head of baring NCAA athletes from getting paid for years. So yeah screw that guy. I could have been getting paid back in the day. Finebaum isn’t saying that Emmert should be fired because he’s not letting student athletes get paid. Finebaum thinks that Emmert should be fired due to his lack of leadership during the covid-19 pandemic. There is a full video from Finebaum on why Emmert should be fired. The guy has some fantastic one liners. “Emmert telling us there is a problem with college football is like a meteorologist telling us that it is raining during a hurricane.” Not sure if he had that written down or if he just came up with that on the top of his head but it is gold.

A complete failure at leadership is pretty accurate. College football is looking bleak. Conference only games. No idea on how the College Football Playoffs are going to happen. If there is not inter conference play how the hell are we going to figure out which team is best. There are five conference commissioners but no commissioner of football. No wonder there is no direction. Each one of these commissioners are going to do what is best for themselves and their conference. Clearly there is no leadership as the Ivy League has canceled all sports at least until spring. Although that is expected from those nerds. Ha education first. As Cardale Jones once said, “I didn’t come to play school.” The other conferences are following Cardale’s lead and forwarding ahead with sports. They are all just doing it separately. The five conference commissioners are doing what they think is best. It is unfortunate that they are not all working together, but it isn’t entirely their fault that they are working in their own self interest, that it is Emmert’s. He is paid millions of dollars a year and has not said a word to the commissioners on how to go forward with their seasons. Honestly I wouldn’t be shocked if he hasn’t said a thing to any of the commissioners for any sports. The NCAA has so much oversight and regulation that Emmert probably thinks he can just sit back and let the system figure itself out. The system is absolutely massive so him thinking
