INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NCAA President Mark Emmert has spent the past few months fending off misperceptions and critics.

He insists the governing body is making progress on reforming college sports.

But he's also frustrated by a growing list of issues -- override measures, suspended rules, the focus on the NCAA's own scandal and continual questions about his own job -- heading into the board of directors' regularly-scheduled meeting Thursday.

The landscape has changed dramatically since the board last met in person in January.

Since then, Emmert has had to contend with fallout from the botched investigation of Miami, departures in the enforcement division, questions about rules that had already been passed and his own performance at the annual Final Four news conference.
