NCAA's Myles Brand Well-Compensated For "Protecting" Student-Athletes

He also happens to be Georgia's president, where he is so well-loved that even the mild-mannered law-talkin' bloggers give him the same nickname as Mussolini. The crankier ones less given to Faulkerian sentences just call him "a big fat liar" and "hypocrite." These assertions aren't just internet crackpottery. They've been backed up by by hoity-toity accounting firm Deloitte and Touche. . . . Adams is one of the leading candidates to replace deceased NCAA president Myles Brand. Say what you want about Brand, but he at least seemed earnest. His major project was an academic reform push that seems at least marginally effective at publicizing and punishing schools that don't make a good faith effort at graduating 60 percent of their players. There aren't legions of incensed Indiana bloggers who spit before saying his name. There isn't a 50-page audit alleging massive financial improprieties with his name on it. At no point did 70 percent of the faculty give him a vote of no confidence. It seems like literally everyone with a stake in UGA gets that sign above without having to think about it, so what possible reason could there be to put him in charge of the NCAA?

Opposition to Michael Adams outside of Bulldog Nation is starting to pick up steam. As an extra added bonus, this is unquestionably the nicest thing Brian Cook has ever written about me! Go 'Dawgs!
