Another media voice chimes in against Dr. Evil Michael Adams

Written by Juan Cena on Wednesday, March 31 2010 and posted in SWRT

The Sporting Blog's Brian Cook joins Bob Ryan in saying that UGA president Dr. Evil Michael Adams might not be the best candidate for NCAA president.

... 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?

Considering that the NCAA seems less and less of an organization to oversee academic and ethical standards in college sports, and more as a big money machine disguised as a non-for-profit organization, Dr. EvilAdams might be a good choice for NCAA president. If ethics are still important to you however, he might not such a good idea.
