Jay Bilas torches NCAA president Mark Emmert following women's basketball weight room backlash
Jay Bilas has never been a big fan of the organization known as the NCAA.
Turns out, Bilas isn’t a big fan of the man charged with running the National Collegiate Athletic Association, either.
If you missed it over the weekend, a viral video was released showing the incredible differences between the men’s and women’s workout equipment at the NCAA Tournament this year, which is all being held in Indianapolis due to COVID.
Following the release of the video, NCAA Senior Vice President of Basketball Dan Gavitt issued an apology for the mistake and promised to correct it.
“I apologize to the women’s student-athletes, coaches and committee for dropping the ball on the weight room issue in San Antonio, we’ll get it fixed as soon as possible,” Gavitt said.
Now NCAA President Mark Emmert has stepped in to help overview the investigation into the issue.
That’s when Bilas issued the following video torching the NCAA president for a clear lack of leadership that led to this issue in the first place.
