promotion for his son, is that grounds for schools to leave the ACC without penalty?
Nobody with the ability to speak up will do so because there's some embarrassing (if not illegal) stuff for presidents, ADs, etc.
The Orange Bowl does (or at least did) their annual cruise for ADs and wives. I'm sure there are similar things for the presidents. The annual conference meetings are all held at Florida resorts instead of the ACC HQ in Greensboro or one of the campuses. Who do you think pays for this, ultimately? It's so easy to be generous when you're spending other people's money.
The frustrating bottom line is that these guys are employees of the school, yet are frequently put in positions to choose their own self-interest over that of the school they are supposed to represent. I hope you're sitting down for this....they usually choose what benefits them.
