10:02 AM ET 02.24 | NCAA President Mark Emmert still has the confidence of the association's executive committee, despite several indicators in recent days that some schools are questioning his effectiveness. The NCAA released a statement Saturday, revealing that the executive committee has "unanimously affirmed" its ongoing support of Emmert. Both the decision to make such a statement - and to do so, without warning, over a weekend - are highly unusual for the NCAA, which has been under fire for some time over the way many high-profile cases have been handled, most recently the long investigation of Miami. Still, the committee also wants the NCAA to move forward with a total review of the association's policies, and said "subsequent improvement ... is necessary." Their statement comes five days after Emmert himself said he wondered if the committee would consider disciplinary action against him after all this recent tumult involving the association.
