You’re the president of an organization under siege for a multitude of reasons. Maybe it wouldn’t be best to make some flippant comments on a popular national radio show.

But NCAA President Mark Emmert, on ESPN’s Mike & Mike Friday morning:

Mike & Mike @MikeAndMike

"If I can hire someone to play football for me why would I hire an 18 year old? Why not someone who plays in the CFL?" Emmert on unions

7:20 AM - 18 Apr 2014

Mark Emmert on @MikeAndMike on deregulating food rules: If UConn wants to feed Shabazz breakfast in bed, they can.“

NCAA President says athletes are "taking seats from a paying student." Wow.

There are real, significant problems with the NCAA model that need to be fixed, and I’m sure current college athletes don’t appreciate the head of their organization saying stuff like this. To illustrate how deeply unpopular Emmert is, just look at the #AskEmmert hashtag on Twitter. An example, via our own John Taylor, sums things up:

CollegeFootballTalk @CFTalk

#askemmert Have you ever had the feeling where you know you should stop talking but simply can't?

7:30 AM - 18 Apr 2014

It’s not exactly a been a great day for Emmert, and it’s not even 10 a.m. on the East Coast yet.

How fun would it be to slip him a little sodium pentothal before a radio interview. "Of course we turn a blind eye to everything that goes on at Alabama. Nick knows where all of my bodies are burried."
