ATLANTA » NCAA President Mark Emmert is defending his record amid complaints about the way the organization has investigated wayward schools, as well as a newspaper report that questioned his leadership in previous jobs.

Emmert held a 45-minute news conference today during the Final Four that turned contentious at times. In fact, he fired a parting shot at a reporter: "I know you're disappointed, but I'm still here."

In particular, the NCAA has come under fire for violating its own policies while investigating the scandal involving a Miami booster. Emmert says the NCAA acknowledged its mistakes and made the necessary changes.

In addition, Emmert dismissed a USA Today story that accuses him of shirking responsibility for problems at Connecticut, LSU and Montana State under his watch.

NCAA needs total revamping. It is an embarrassment how it has humiliated countless campuses trying to be academic centres rather than public entertainment factories.
