ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum is not happy with the NCAA’s president.
Finebaum blasted NCAA president Mark Emmert earlier this week. The longtime ESPN personality is crushing Emmert for a lack of leadership during the pandemic.
The state of college sports is in serious doubt, especially for the fall, and Finebaum is placing some of the blame on Emmert.
Finebaum believes the NCAA president should be fired.
“(Brown’s comments) say that Mark Emmert is a complete failure of leadership,” Finebaum said on ESPN’s Get Up! “First of all, it was nice of Mark Emmert to come out of the ‘Witness Protection Program’ yesterday to let us know what we should all know about the college football season. He’s the president of the NCAA. He makes $3.5 million a year. And him telling us there is a problem is like a meteorologist telling us during a hurricane that it is raining outside.
“(Emmert) is a complete, abject failure of leadership … quite frankly, I think he should be fired. We might wait until this storm passes to get rid of him, but he has no use whatsoever except taking up airwaves with idiotic, inane and unimportant statements. The bottom line, Mack Brown is saying what a lot of people are saying: College football needs leadership. We have five (power) conference commissioners, but no one is in charge.”
North Carolina head coach Mack Brown said earlier this week that college football needs a commissioner.
“I really wish we’d have a commissioner of college football,” Brown told Paul Finebaum on Thursday. “We wouldn’t have different leagues doing different things and so much uncertainty. If we were more uniform and all on the same page … then we wouldn’t be in the position we are in right now.”
