RT @McDNBA: I really enjoyed this article. @SteveKerr and @JayBilas are at the top of my list of guys I'd love to have a glass of 🍷with. I've had plenty of 🍷- and 🍺🧉🍹🍸🍾 - with Bilas over the years. The 🥛's always end up empty, especially when this guy (on the left) is around... 👀 https://t.co/ia5387zLVw https://t.co/jLh12bwCsW

If true, this is the traditional NCAA member response. Say publicly that you listen to players, then threaten them to stifle their voices. Now, ADs are saying the players “love to play,” and will not be able to organize anyway. Athletes only leverage is whether they play.
The NCAA’s leadership void has been clear for a decade. Will the latest crisis cause needed change? As always, the biggest concern isn’t policy, it’s consumption...the NCAA Tournament. Give people the tourney, they’ll accept anything, no matter how craven. https://t.co/K9xk2rb69c

That the athletes are polite is not conclusive evidence that they agree. The calls allow the conference to claim it is talking to the athletes, but the athletes have no real say, there is no negotiation. They can only decide whether to play after decisions are made by others.
While no tweet or quote fully captures every aspect of any meeting, the student-athletes participating on Wednesday’s Football Leadership Council videoconference concluded with this comment, “Thank you. We appreciate the information and hope we can do this again.”
