Vanderbilt Eliminates Separate Athletic Department

SEC College Football – Vandy Eliminates Athletic Department — this seems dumb. Running an athletic program is a significant body of work, quite distinct from that of running an educational program. NCAA rules and regulations, budgeting, facilities, recruiting — it is all different than what your normal university administrators deal with. One way or another you are going to have dedicated staff focusing on the issues; denying their existence is not going to help the quality or professionalism of the effort.
