INDIANAPOLIS — Mark Emmert takes a full plate of issues into his first NCAA convention as president.
He wants to get tough on rule-breakers. He wants to continue the academic reform efforts led by the late Myles Brand. And he would like to eliminate any confusion about the parent-athlete relationship that became a hot topic because of Cam Newton and his father.
Emmert may refer to the Newton case in his first state of the NCAA speech this week in San Antonio.
The NCAA said that Cecil Newton and a former Mississippi State player tried to get money from Mississippi State to bring Cam Newton to Starkville — but Cam Newton and Auburn didn't know about it.
Newton won the Heisman Trophy this season and led Auburn to the national championship on Monday night.
