Congress Says NCAA Needs Change, but Mark Emmert Doesn’t Have the Answers. SI’s Ross Dellenger (The whole read is worth the click and I’m quoting the end of the article, where it highlights that Mark Emmert is asked if he has any answers or anything on paper and the answer is no. LOL.):

Meanwhile, those operating the sport—from conference administrators to head coaches—are making millions of dollars in an industry that last year produced $14 billion in revenue. That figure was bandied about by senators during Tuesday’s hearing.

So what’s being done to correct this inequality? John Tester, a Democrat from Montana, asked that question to Emmert during an exchange midway through the proceedings.

“I’m going to be honest with you,” Tester told Emmert, “you don’t want us to solve this. You want us to help you solve this. So the question is, where are we at as far as putting stuff on paper, because a time is a clickin’ and we can’t stop states from what they’re doing. We’ve got to figure it out.”

“There is a timeline in place for having this resolved for January 2021,” Emmert responded.

Asked the senator, “Do you have anything on paper right now?”

Said Emmert: “We don’t.”
