NCAA President Mark Emmert appeared on “Mike and Mike” on Friday morning and it may have been a decision he’ll rethink.
If, that is, someone points him to Twitter.
Emmert was tweet-viscerated when a staffer encouraged users to use the hashtag #AskEmmert to post questions to the prez. Oh, boy, did people ask questions in an “emperor has no clothes” sort of way that blew up Twitter. Can every Friday be #AskEmmert day?
