On Friday, the NCAA said its executive committee held a conference call and decided to reiterate its support of Emmert. The committee meets regularly each quarter, the most recent being at the national convention last month. And on Saturday, they released that support through a three-paragraph statement.
"In short, we demand the highest level of integrity and accountability not only from our peers but also from the national office," the statement said. "While progress has been made, additional important work remains."
