Like so many apologists, your view of the heirarchy of the NCAA is like a light bulb that is not screwed in all the way. Sometimes it flickers on --drug policy -- and sometimes it flickers off -- academic fraud. If it makes some of the college presidents feel good to hide behind the enforcement staff -- who must report to someone in a corporate heirarchy, then all I can say is it is crying shame. Having served on my share of boards, it isn't much comfort in saying , "that part of the organization isn't under my control." People are going to think you are crazy. And no matter what the title is of the person representing a college at any level of the NCAA, it is the members' presidents who will be and should be held responsible when the institution takes a soft approach on cheating and academic fraud, which is exactly what it does.
