NCAA’s Emmert defends record

ATLANTA (AP) — NCAA President Mark Emmert spent half-hour defending his record during an often-contentious news conference Thursday.

A defiant Emmert shrugged off his critics.

“The fact of the matter is that change is what we’re about in the NCAA right now,” he said, “and we’re trying to work our way through some very, very difficult changes to make the whole notion of intercollegiate athletics strong and viable going into the second century of the NCAA and of college sport.”

On his way off the podium, Emmert even took a parting shot at a reporter who has called for his dismissal.

“I know you’re disappointed,” the president said with a sly grin, “but I’m still here.”
