NCAA president talks about challenges facing college sports amid pandemic


Speaking exclusively with TODAY, Mark Emmert, president of the National Collegiate Athletics Association, says he disagrees with a letter from more than 1,000 student athletes accusing the NCAA of a “laissez-faire” attitude toward college sports policies amid the pandemic. He talks about policies to permit athletes to opt out of competition without losing their scholarships, coverage of any COVID-related medical bills, and testing.
