There was a Q&A with NCAA President Mark Emmert on Twitter yesterday for the Mike & Mike show. Predictably it was a disaster for Emmert. Here are some of the questions.

#askemmert how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck profited off of the work of unpaid labor under the guide of amateurism?

#askemmert Do you think slave owners would have prolonged slavery just a bit longer if they called it "amateurism"?

@MikeAndMike how do you justify exploiting 19 & 20 year olds for the sake of "amateurism"? #AskEmmert

@MikeAndMike Why are coaches allowed to leave whenever they want, but athletes are held back by transfer rules? #AskEmmert

@MikeAndMike why are all students except student-athletes allowed to earn a living? #AskEmmert

What was the graduation percentage of athletes when you were the Chancellor of Conn & LSU #askemmert

@MikeAndMike #AskEmmert how can someone whose salary exceeds $1.5m argue in good faith that athletes shouldn't get greater share of ncaa $s?

How do you justify vacating victories for players & a coach who weren't involved in any crime? #AskEmmert

@MikeAndMike @espngolic @SedanoESPN #AskEmmert how does it feel to oversee the end of the @NCAA ?

UCONN's graduation rate is 8%. Are these really STUDENT athletes? #AskEmmert

#AskEmmert do you not want kids to unionize because that might mean you actually have to give kids money for using their likeness?

#AskEmmert Was trying to shield a morally bankrupt institution from a rising tide of public disgust the reason you got into higher education

Interesting point on the college students as employees debate that I hadn't heard until today:

Quote:
Students from foreign countries are in the United States pursuant to F-1 status, which generally allows for studies, but not work. Only under limited situations are foreign students allowed to be employed while enrolled: either for on-campus employment of 20 or less hours, or based on financial need. Student athletes practice far more than 20 hours per week and must travel for games.

Thus, it appears that if student athletes are deemed employees, foreign students would be ineligible to play (work) based on current immigration laws.
With basketball becoming more global this could lead to a lot of problems. Potential #1 pick Andrew Wiggins could have been ineligible if he was classified as an employee.

James Young and Julius Randle going to the NBA and WCS, Alex, Marcus Lee, and Dakari Johnson returning. Our front court consists of WCS, Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee, Karl Towns and Trey Lyles as our big men. We will have the deepest front court of any team in the NCAA. If the Andrew and Aaron Harrison return next year I'm going to be more excited about that team then I was about this team that just lost in the championship game.

They met with some agents last night in Lexington but they haven't been hearing what they wanted to hear. Their stock isn't too high and they aren't locks for the first round. I'm thinking they announce by Friday, maybe tomorrow. If they come back we will be pretty damn good. I would say unstoppable but I don't want to jinx myself again.

Coming back for another season would definitely help them. Next years draft is shaping up to be weak and they both could potentially be lottery picks at best but at least first rounders. Plus it will give them one more chance to play together.

If they think things through longterm, they will stick around for another year.
